Empower Young Employees. At Indian information-technology powerhouse Infosys, the average age of an employee is 26. But senior executives, who were looking to young up-and-comers for feedback and new ideas, grew frustrated when they realized that many of those recruits were keeping their opinions to themselves. In response, top management inaugurated a program called Voice of Youth, which gathers together a group of top-performing twentysomethings and gives them a seat on the company's management council. There's no holding back at that point: Members of all ages are expected to "debate, discuss, and critique" any and all aspects of the business.
