Further, the company is also boosting the variable pay components of salaries which will result in cost-cutting. One of the sources close to the development said, “It is part of the appraisal process; it is getting stricter. If you were a marginal performer or have not been allocated (a project), then they would look at beginning a separation process.”Cognizant Technology Solutions CorpReutersThe employees having experience more than eight years are expected to be targeted. The exact figure to be fired is still under evaluation and would depend on growth registered in this quarter. It is to be noted that the company has already suspended non-essential travel to save costs.
