tcs asks employees to return to office at least thrice a week
ETtechTata Consultancy Services (TCS) has asked 85% of its employees to return to office at least thrice a week, while senior-level executives have been asked to do so five times a week, according to sources aware of the matter.The respective managers will prepare a roster informing associates about their workdays, company insiders said.The Tata group company sent an internal email on the development earlier this month.TCS has not issued an effective date of implementation for the new guidelines, sources added.“We are moving in a phased manner to get our associates back to office. This is in line with our vision to transition to 25*25 model,” the company told ET, in response to specific queries. It did not provide further details.Most employees of IT companies have been working from home, while less than 10% of staff working on mission-critical projects have returned to physical locations.IT firms have been dealing with issues of high attrition, moonlighting and a talent crunch since the WFH option was put in place after the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic.TCS had announced a new 25/25 model in 2021, to be implemented by 2025 whereby only a quarter of the company’s half a million employees would be required to work from office at any given point and would spend only a quarter of their time in office.However, the company wants all employees to return to the office before it transitions to the new model in phases.According to the company, remote working cannot be the sole work arrangement.“Customers have begun visiting our offices and labs and while we see the views of the youngsters about having flexibility, customers’ requirements, choices, compliance risks and regulations also have to be considered,” said N Ganapathy Subramaniam, chief operating officer, TCS. “Our view is that we can’t have new joinees not seeing a TCS office or interacting with role models as mentors. Remote working as the only goal will lead to a very transactional experience which is neither in the interest of the organisation or these young professionals, as they will miss out on gaining holistic professional growth,” he told ET earlier this week.
Not more than 20% of TCS employees have returned to work from office, ET reported earlier this week.
