Infosys splits HR head role

As part of a larger organizational overhaul, Infosys??next human resources head will  focus on leadership development and succession planning, a strategy-led position removed from routine operational hiring and employee management functions.The company undertook an organization reshuffle recently that will result in current global HR head Srikantan Moorthy moving to a new delivery function role effective April 1.Executive vice president Binod Hampapur Rangadore leads overall ‘talent fulfillment’ function, which includes mass recruitment, training, and personnel allocation.The hunt for the next HR head at Infosys comes at a time when chief executive Vishal Sikka is making big bets on new technologies such as artificial intelligence.Since Sikka took over, he has put in a variety of different measures to measure employee productivity, including taking into account feedback from its 900-plus clients to evaluate and carry out appraisals for staff.Another such measure that Infosys put into place since Sikka took over was to abandon the traditional ‘Bell Curve’ evaluation for its staff giving greater flexibility to managers in rating their team members, effective this appraisal cycle. Infosys follows an October-September annual appraisal cycle.
