As part of new appraisal system iCount, Infosys employees will be offered appraisal based on specific targets. Infosys has given up the bell curve assessment tool and initiated iCount, employees will be offered feedback and subjected to reviews throughout the year rather than just an annual appraisal. These changes were constituted as part of the “new and renew” strategy. “Infosys has changed the way performance management is done, with higher focus on individual performance rather than relative performance. We have moved away from forced ranking curve and given our managers more flexibility and empowerment, while still retaining focus on maintaining a high performance culture,” said Infosys Sr. HR executive.
