Infosys’ Mega Plan To Bring 300,000 Employees Back To Office: 3 Phase Plan With Hybrid Model Explained
Infosys Return To Office Plan
“In the first phase are the people who are in the home locations, which could be in the DC (Development Center) or join the DC near their home town. We are encouraging people to come at least twice a week,” said CFO Nilanjan Roy, while speaking to media persons after announcing the company’s fourth-quarter results on April 13.
It is noteworthy here that the company’s senior leaders and teams are already coming to offices.
This plan will have phase two which would cover people outside the towns that do not have Infosys delivery centers.
According to Roy, Infosys has asked these employees to make preparations over the next few months to see if they can come back to the centers.
Further adding “This is again based on individual circumstances. Over a period of time, we are looking at a more hybrid work model. This will depend on clients, regulatory environment and a number of other considerations. So this will be a phased approach and we are seeing it as really important,”.
Presently, Infosys employs 3,14,015 people and close to 95 percent of them are working from home.
TCS Hybrid Work Model
Coming to its peers, TCS has over 95 percent of its employees continuing to work from home.
But now, the company plans to get the top 50,000 senior employees to the office three times a week starting April.
Further, the IT service provider plans to gradually increase the number of people returning to the office, said Rajesh Gopinathan, CEO & MD.
The company will have 20 percent working from offices and 80 percent from home by the middle of FY23, he said.
The approach seems to be a part of the company’s strategy to get to the 25 x 25 x 25 work-from-home (WFH) model.
According to this, only 25 percent of its associates will need to work out of facilities at any point in time by 2025.
But the best part is that the employees will not need to spend more than 25 percent of their time at work.
So far, TCS employs 592,195 people, with over a lakh added in FY22.
