Work From Home Ends For All Vaccinated TCS Employees; 70% Staff Fully Vaccinated
Everyone talked about the normal when pandemics hit the country. Old normal and new normal became catchphrases to talk about. Many predicted that there is no going back to the old normal in any way. And to some extent, this might be true. This ongoing pandemic has certainly changed the way Human Beings make their choices and interact with each other.
Working from the office was certainly a huge deal before the pandemic. But, it has certainly changed now. Working from home has become the new norm and it is here to stay in some form or other.
But it looks like IT major TCS might just be making an attempt at going back to the old normal, at least up to some extent.
