Work From Home Ends For 2.6 Lakh Infosys Employees; Max Employees Asked To Work From Office
Infosys Ltd told employees last week they could resume work from offices, according to a memo seen by Reuters that offers an early sign of the country’s $190 billion technology services sector moving to get back on track.
Many IT businesses are mass-vaccinating their personnel to ensure that they are protected from Covid, while also preparing them to return to work once the situation gets back to normal, or the pandemic’s impact is reduced.
Most MNC employees have already received their first round of vaccination, and some have also completed their second dosage.
Infosys Ltd Will Resume Work From Offices!
Large corporations have allowed their staff to work from home but small businesses and startups are finding it difficult to adapt the work from anywhere model due to a lack of resources and technology.
Many corporations planned to reopen offices in full force at the moment, but with the second wave striking and more lockdowns being announced, these plans had to be postponed for a long period.
Infosys said the country’s safety situation seems to be improving, with growing vaccination coverage. Infosys did not respond to Reuters’ request for comment on the memo.
“We have been getting requests from certain accounts to allow their team members to work from Infosys campuses. In addition, some of our employees have also been asking to come back and start working from the office, as a personal preference.”
Infosys had a total employee base of 2.67 lakh at the end of the June quarter, as compared to 2.59 lakh in the March quarter.
After reporting results last week, Infosys executives told analysts that roughly 99% of its staff was working from home, and the company would make efforts to get “more and more people to come to office” over the next couple of quarters

Tata Consultancy Services Ltd, the country’s biggest outsourcer, said earlier this month that it hoped to vaccinate all its employees and their families by September.
“Recognizing that vaccination was our best bet to an early return to normalcy, we undertook a pan-India vaccination drive that began in May,” said Chief Executive Officer Rajesh Gopinathan, adding that 70% of the company’s staff had been fully or partially vaccinated so far.
Other companies such as Wipro have said they will wait until September to get staff back to work.
