"Without commenting on individual personnel matters, as a company with approximately 290,000 people, new executive hires and voluntary departures are part of the normal course of business. There are no departures that have resulted from the ransomware incident last month involving some of our corporate systems," a spokesperson told TOI.

There has not been any mention of COVID-19 contributing to these exits.

Earlier, Cognizant announced its plan to defer the joining dates of campus recruits to September quarter.

Last year, Cognizant became the second IT company, only after Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), to touch the 2-lakh employee mark in India.
