Permanent Work From Home For 75% TCS Employees: Vision 2025 On Track?
TCS has announced that it is moving from work from home to work from the office! By the end of this year or the beginning of next year, the corporation plans to call 90% of its employees back to work.
“Three months back, we had launched one of the biggest corporate vaccination drives in over 125 cities across India, for our associates and their dependents. Over 90 per cent of our workforce and their families have already received the first dose. We aim to complete their second dose soon,”
a spokesperson of the company said to the business daily.
TCS Vaccination Drive
Earlier in July, Tata Consultancy Services Ltd, the country’s biggest outsourcer, said 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
Also 70% of the company’s staff had been fully or partially vaccinated so far.”

Why Does TCS Want Employees To Get Back To The Office?
Milind Lakkad, global head, human resources had said that TCS created a blueprint, Vision 25/25 to ensure that 25 per cent of its employees were present only 25 per cent of the time in offices to be 100 per cent productive.
What Is The 25*25 Model?
TCS plans to put through the hybrid model 25×25 wherein by 2025, only 25% of its associates will need to work out of facilities at any point in time. According to the model, employees won’t be spending more than 25 per cent of their time at work.
But this model will be overwhelming for young mothers and women who are caring for the elderly. It will also help in tier 2 and 3 cities as remote working becomes a norm.
“Our customers are comfortable with this model and want us to take on more work that others are not able to handle. This has given us the confidence to come out with a bold new Vision 25×25. Under this model, the company is expecting only 1.12 lakh to work from office by 2025.”
According to Gopinathan, enhancing productivity and achieving a better work-life balance were two of the key reasons for the company’s decision to go remote.
