Ranked 31st in 2018, Infosys’ rise in the rankings exemplifies the company’s strong performance, the respect it inspires among its stakeholders and also highlights the contribution of digital services companies worldwide, he said in a statement.
The editors at Forbes said: “This year’s list has a global scope, reflecting the emerging prevalence of Asian companies in the United States. Infosys has made great strides in the United States this year after surpassing its goal of hiring over 10,000 American employees well ahead of schedule.”
