Distractions and disruptions are the main reasons for quitting, says Sikka 18.8.2017 Deccan Herald - Business
Vishal Sikka on Friday submitted his resignation to the post of Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Managing Director (MD) of Infosys company. In an e-mail sent to our employee, distractions and disruptions are cited as the main reason for Sikkas resignation.
