Infy launches radio station for staff

Our Bureau Bangalore | Updated on August 19, 2011

Infosys has launched yet another HR platform to reach out to its employees, a radio station exclusively for company employees. InfyRadio, currently running as a pilot experiment in Bangalore, will be launched on other Infy campuses in the next three months.

On his last day at work on Friday, Mr N R Narayana Murthy's interview was aired on InfyRadio. According to sources in the company, Mr Murthy spoke of his personal life and is said to have ‘requested' for retro Hindi film songs.

Innovative communication

HR sources at Infosys said “it was important for the management to use innovative means of communication that employees relate to as well as enjoy.” Infy Radio was born as a result of this need for communication and employee engagement.

Ms Nandita Gurjar, Executive Vice-President and Global Head of HR, Infosys, said that employees just need to download an application on their iPod and other handheld devices and listen to music on demand.

This radio service will run for six hours a day, five days a week and will be a combination of music (Hindi/English), RJ Talk, Infy-related communication, leadership interviews, song requests as well as interactive contests. The plan is to involve employees and some celebrity guests in the running of this station, said HR sources.

The company has a special Web site for the radio station, where employees can request songs, participate in contests, download the InfyRadio jingle as well as provide feedback about the shows.
