In 100 days, Infosys Springboard onboards over 1.2 million digital learners across India

To further accelerate democratization of digital learning by collaborating with a rich ecosystem of educators and state administrators across the country

Bengaluru, India – March 2, 2022

Infosys (NSE, BSE, NYSE: INFY), a global leader in next-generation digital services and consulting, today announced that its flagship digital reskilling program, Infosys Springboard, continues to expand its reach to learners across India by growing its thriving community to over 1.2 million users, since its launch. Infosys Springboard has partnered with over 700+ educational institutions and education departments of the State Governments of Karnataka, Maharashtra, and Uttar Pradesh to realize this vision. This is serving to help Infosys make sustained progress on its ESG commitment to digitally reskill 10 million plus people by 2025.

Infosys Springboard leverages Infosys’ rich legacy in employee and broad-based student competency development, along with long-ranging collaborations, with some of the world’s leading educators, to continuously enrich its curriculum. The program delivers a sentient and corporate-grade learning experience, with productive educator-learner collaborations which is fully aligned with India’s National Education Policy 2020. Infosys Springboard is also well outfitted to grow and strengthen industry-academia synergies which learners can take advantage of to become future-ready.

The Hon’ble Chief Minister of Karnataka Shri. Basavaraj Bommai said, "The vision of our government is to make Karnataka a global knowledge hub and leader in the digital/IT sector. Education and hands-on experience are key to unlock potential. Our government has actively championed path-breaking efforts like NEP 2020 to ensure our students have the best opportunities. It is important to equip our students with skills in niche and futuristic technologies to build their employability and entrepreneurial ability. Through Infosys Springboard, students and faculty can enrich their learning and be future-ready. I am happy to note that more than 3 lakh learners from Karnataka have registered and are exploring various learning opportunities on Infosys Springboard. I wish them all the best and congratulate Infosys Springboard on the endeavor.”

Nilanjan Roy, Chief Financial Officer at Infosys said, “As businesses evolve from being largely shareholder-focused to stakeholder-inclusive companies, embracing a strong ESG agenda is crucial. With every job profoundly transformed, thanks to the fourth industrial revolution, the workforce of the future will need to develop new and varied capabilities, especially digital skills. Preparing for this future of work is a significant challenge that we as a society have to address collectively. Our continued CSR investment in Infosys Springboard, and its success marks our commitment to prepare people, from the grassroots up, to embrace change.”

“There is an urgent need to nurture digital capabilities, skills, and learning among the students, employees, and the local communities that we engage with. As part of our ongoing ESG commitment to bridge the digital divide, Infosys Springboard is democratizing digital learning, preparing more aspirants to explore emerging opportunities and equipping working professionals to flourish in the jobs of the future. The over 1.2 million, and still growing, learners benefiting from Infosys Springboard inspire us to redouble our efforts to help navigate India into the digital future,” said, Thirumala Arohi, Senior Vice President and Head - Education, Training and Assessment at Infosys.
