Satyam Ranks Eighth in Training Top 125

  • Company recognized for employer-sponsored workforce training and development
  • Satyam is lone India-based IT provider honored

HYDERABAD, India, Feb. 17, 2009 – Satyam Computer Services Ltd. (NYSE: SAY), a leading global consulting and information technology services provider, announced today that it has been ranked eighth in Training Magazine’s Top 125. The listing, which was announced Feb. 9 at an awards gala in the Atlanta World Congress Center, measures a broad range of training elements. These include an organization’s ability to link training with its business objectives, the number of trainers it employs, employee turnover and retention, and leadership development. Other factors include tuition assistance, certifications and spending on training.

“This is a special honor for Satyam, for several reasons,” said Ed Cohen, Satyam’s Chief Learning Officer. “For one, Satyam is the only India-based professional services organization honored in the top 10. Additionally, for the past three years, we have been consistently moving up the list—from 15th to 11th, and now to eighth. And finally, more than 1,000 global organizations submitted entries this year; the fact that we were ranked so high shows the business value learning brings to Satyam and its customers.”

Winners are recognized in a special section of the February 2009 issue of Training. This is the seventh consecutive year the magazine has ranked the best companies in employer-sponsored workforce training and development. Companies are rated on quantitative (75 percent to total score) and qualitative (25 percent) data. An outside research and statistical data company, under Training’s guidance, evaluated companies on data supplied by applicants. Later, editors reviewed each application.

“Our ranking demonstrates the fact that the global learning community is standing by Satyam, even during very challenging times for the company,” Cohen said. “This is valid testament of the great organization we have built together.”

The editors also honored Satyam’s Family Learning Initiative for providing valuable services to associates and their dependents, and for offering unique learning opportunities. The Family Learning Initiative enables families to bond with each other and the organization through learning interventions. It also fosters creativity and helps cultivate a learning culture.
