Murthy’s on Youngsters
Narayana Murthy expressed his disappointment on the dedication of India’s youth towards their work. Murthy believes that a country will become highly successful only if the people work hard.
There is a strong correlation between employee performance and the growth of the country. Yes, employees represent their company. So, an individual performance directly impacts business growth.
As a result, if employees start working hard then eventually company gets good recognition from their clients.
Then the client will be more happy to continue their relationship with the respective company. It will be good for the company’s revenue and also for the country as well. Eventually, reputation will be multifold.
But Narayana Murthy often witnesses that India’s youths are not very dedicated to their work. He also said that he would see employees coming to the office at 11 AM and packing their stuff back at 5 PM. He quotes ” This what I see in electronic city “
Even Narayana Murthy advises that employees should work 3 shifts instead of one.
Learn from China
Now China is our prime enemy on the political and military level. However, it is unimaginable about the growth of China in the last few decades. As Infosys Narayana Murthy told our Indian government should learn from China’s growth.
He believes that China and India’s landscapes are almost similar. Both countries have high populations and geography. But the other country had prospered with a $19 trillion economy and India is just hitting the milestone of $3 trillion.
So, Murthy advises the Indian government to seek help from China about the growth of the economy. However, Murthy knew that the relationship between China and India was at its worst. But still, from a growth perspective, it is wise to seek advice.
