Infosys is India's most admired company: The Wall Street Journal

Globalization is not only rapidly transforming the business landscape, but also compelling global companies to seek reliable partners for sustainable growth. Infosys is showing how an ecosystem of innovation and sound corporate governance can deliver predictable results despite the odds.

Infosys was ranked India's 'Most Admired Company' in The Wall Street Journal Asia 200, a listing of Asia's leading companies in 2010. We have achieved this distinction for nine years in a row. Infosys continues to inspire trust and confidence among customers, investors and other constituents.

In the online survey of readers and online subscribers of The Wall Street Journal, Infosys topped the rankings for corporate reputation and vision. Established in 1981 with capital of US$ 250, Infosys has grown to a US$ 6.4 billion IT services and consulting company by living the values of the founders:

'When in doubt, disclose'
Infosys has always shared relevant information with stakeholders. We have gone a step further by disclosing information that is not required by law. In fiscal 1994, we provided a comparison of actual performance vis-à-vis projections made in the prospectus. After setting the precedent, such disclosure became mandatory in India.

'Lead by example'
Infosys pioneered the Global Delivery Model, which distributes work and integrates components across global locations to provide maximum value. We took outsourcing to the next level - modular global sourcing enabled by technology, driven by a global talent pool and spurred by new business models to accelerate innovation.

'Exceed expectations, consistently'
Infosys has always set the highest standards for employees and the industry. This pursuit of excellence drives more than 100,000 employees to improve themselves both at the individual and professional levels. It manifests as new benchmarks in sustainable business solutions and corporate governance.

The Wall Street Journal reports that the ability of Infosys to increase its global footprint and diversify into new areas, such as healthcare, pharmaceuticals and life sciences, enabled the company to emerge as India's most admired corporation.
