TCS has ended permanent remote working for employees and has called them back to the office.

Work From Home Ends For 5.2 Lakh TCS Employees; All Employees Asked To Work From Office

How it started

Last year in an official mail to employees, TCS called its employees to come back to offices three days a week or according to the roster set by their team supervisor.

Senior leaders have been working from offices for a while now and its customers are also visiting the company offices.

It said to employees that their respective managers will now roster them to work from the office for at least 3 days in a week.

How it will be now 

Now in a recent interview the tech giant confirmed to officially rule out 100 per cent remote work for everyone.

COO N. Ganapathy Subramaniam said, “There is a greater realisation that by coming to offices, more things get done, especially for people who have joined us in the last two years. 

When they come and see the offices, they see a different perspective of TCS, they see a different perspective of their own position vis-a-vis their peers.”

Precaution still maintained 

The firm has made the decision considering the general interest among employees who want to return to their desks.

However, looking at the recent resurgence of Covid cases around the globe, it will continue taking precautionary measures and will not make work from office mandatory.

Official communication

Subramaniam further added, “We are giving flexibility to our employees. 

But our thinking is that we need to evolve this hybrid model of work, making sure that people do come to office, people do experience it. 

100% working from home is kind of ruled out. 

We expect them to come to office more often and as often as required to experience offices and for their own benefit of learning and sharing.”

Work from the office is also being considered for employees who joined TCS after 2020 and never visited the office in person.

Situation last year

As the official mail sent to employees last year reads, “This will also be an opportunity to welcome a significant number of our new colleagues, who have joined us over the last two years, most of whom have not yet been in a TCS office”.

In May 2020 during the first wave of Covid-19, TCS CEO Rajesh Gopinathan introduced the 25×25 model.

As per this, the company set the plan to call back 25 per cent of its workforce back to the office by 2025.
