The IT industry needs to bring humanism back to the workplace, said Mr R. Gopalakrishnan, Director, Tata Sons Ltd.

Delivering the keynote address at the Nasscom HR Summit 2011, Mr Gopalakrishnan said it is time for those in the industry to “connect, converse and contemplate” and create an organisation of humanism. “Rewire yourself. Get back to the basics. It is simple. This is the only solution for the IT industry which is tripping on itself.”

The IT industry, which employs 2.5 million people, has achieved this in just 15 years; in contrast the organised manufacturing sector took a century to create six million jobs. By 2017, IT will overtake manufacturing in terms of jobs, he said.
