People can now work from wherever they are — Chandigarh, Jalandhar, Orissa.Our plan is that we will recruit in small cities and not ask them to join offices in the big cities.”
At the Cleartax event, Sharma also talked about how India’s prowess in software can be leveraged to build software to enhance productivity levels. “I am enamoured by the opportunity to serve the common citizen of this country using software technology at a scale that when it says software will eat the world, India’s software will eat the world’s unproductivity… We, in India, will make ourselves productive and solve our customers’ needs which will be never possible in another part of the word.”
