India’s largest software exporter TCS has reportedly stipulated employees return to respective office bases before March-end citing policy compliance failures will now invite unspecified “consequences” in one of corporates’ strongest stances against remote work flexibility.

TCS Gives Final Warning To Work From Home Employees: Come To Office, Or Else...

Unit heads have purportedly issued final return-to-office ultimatums after TCS started mandating thrice-weekly campus presence last quarter for roles deemed unsuitable for hybrid options. Critics argue such pressures around physical attendance erode talent retention attractiveness amidst high attrition industrywide.

Cites Vulnerabilities in WFH Model

TCS bases restrictions citing on-location coordination remains vital upholding organizational culture while averting collaborative vulnerabilities from permanent remote regimes leading to diluted workforce cohesion over time.

It aims balancing empathy with purposefulness avoiding extreme stances around hybrid work choices, believing progressive social contact encouragement drives inclusivity that technology still fails replicating at scale during careers’ formative periods especially.

Bellwether Triggers Reversal of Remote Shift

As the sector bellwether signaled noflexibility around physical attendance last year, shifts industrywide seem afoot with IT majors hustling employees back after two years of unhindered location-agnostic work lifestyles during pandemic disruption.

But skepticism continues around effective outcomes from directive-led reversals to office-first mentalities amidst indications of weakened talent loyalty. While fiscal benefits stay debatable still, critics argue cultural erosion from compelled conformity now remains a bigger unknown with consequences feared outpacing gains for India tech.
