Vembu also noted the company’s successful navigation of the global pandemic and the events that followed, pointing to the “pandemic followed by the monster bubble, then inflation, war, the great layoff…
“Navigating stormy seas requires a strong ship culture and a shared sense of purpose and destiny,” adds Vembu.When asked if Zoho has given up anything by remaining a private company, Vijay Sundaram, CSO, said: “Maybe, but what we have gained is much more important: we are masters of our destiny and have the freedom to do what is right for customers. and employees.” #zohoday22 https://t.co/jmPyGwgrSv
