“The annual ‘Directions’ meet with employees is yet another example of how HCL is fostering transparency to make it part of its DNA and culture. Under the aegis of this platform, the company’s senior leadership, including the CEO, travel to different centres in India and abroad for a unique face-to-face interaction with all employees and talk about the company’s performance in the previous year, future strategies and arrive at decision in the most collaborative fashion.

Taking into account the current scenario, and the need to involve employees in the ideation process, HCL’s CEO has also begun the process of reverse blogging, where a blog is posted on critical issues relevant in the existing scenario and employees respond with their own solutions and recommendations.”
