TCS 25/25 Model
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.
“Our customers are comfortable with this model and want us to take 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,” said Gopinathan.
TCS CEO Rajesh Gopinathan first highlighted its 25×25 or 25/25 plan during the company’s FY20 annual report.?
“Towards the end of CY’21, we will encourage our associates to return to offices, at least initially, before we switch to the 25/25 model. This will be done in a phased and flexible manner and will depend on respective team leaders and the requirements of each team/ project. We are committed to the 25/ 25 model, but before transitioning to the model we need to start by getting people back to the office and gradually evolve to 25/25,”
TCS said in a statement to Economic Times earlier.?
According to the Nasscom-Indeed report, 72 per cent of companies plan to operate at 50 per cent workforce capacity starting next year.
