Work From Home Ends For 70% TCS, 59% Infosys, 55% Wipro Employees From This Date (Find Out Why?)
It looks like the IT services providers in India may be rethinking their work-from-home strategy now that most of the employees have been vaccinated at least once and are waiting for the second dose of vaccination.
IT Firms Administering Vaccines To Their Employees
Reportedly, most employees of IT firms such as Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), Infosys, and Wipro have been administered at least one dose for Covid-19.
With this move, the IT firms are also prompted to think that a portion of employees can be called back in the next two quarters.
Infosys and Wipro have also given a statement saying that 59% and 55% of their employees respectively have reportedly inoculated with at least one dose.
Vaccination In TCS
In the case of TCS, 70% of its over half a million employees have been vaccinated as of last week and the IT major hopes to vaccinate all of its employees by September.
During a press conference, Infosys Chief Operating Officer, Pravin Rao said , so far 230,000 doses which covered 120,000 employees and their dependents and family members.
This means that 59% of the employees already received at least the first dose and the rest received at least 1 dose while 10% got both the doses.
Wipro Vaccinating Employees And Their Families
In the case of Wipro, it has vaccinated 35,000 of its employees and their dependent family members since June.
Prior to this, this Bengaluru-headquartered giant had already ordered 100,000 does of Covid-19 vaccine.
Although, the IT giant said that the demand for vaccines is down among its employees as more options are available to them.
The chairman of Wipro, Rishad Premji, said, “As of today, based on the self-declaration of our employees, we are aware that over 55% of our employees in India are vaccinated, and that number is increasing every day,” at the company’s 75th annual general meeting on Wednesday.
It seems that finally the dark cloud of pandemic has started to vanish as India witnessed the lowest fresh Covid-19 cases in almost 4 months on Tuesday at 31,443 fresh infections between Monday and Tuesday.
Not to forget that, this was also the lowest daily tally of new cases in almost 118 days.
