Most Of TCS Employees Are Still Working From Home; But 25% Employees Will Soon Work From Office
The three waves of the Covid-19 pandemic have impacted every aspect of our life, especially the way we work and manage our households.
The pandemic has affected all the job sectors, but IT was mainly affected as it has changed the way people work to the new normal of working from home.
Now the situation is again changing due to the decline in Covid-19 cases.
So, many companies are starting to call their employees back to their offices.
But considering the ‘new normal’, the IT employees might not have to go back to their offices for all five days.
As many IT firms such as TCS, Wipro, Infosys and HCL Technologies are mulling over the idea of a hybrid work model.
If this happens then office goers will have to be back at their desks for a certain number of days.
And the remaining part of the work week they will continue by working from home.
TCS Taking The Initiative
Tata Consultancy Services has already expressed its intent to continue with this model.
The Indian IT major, TCS said, “As the situation with respect to Covid-19 improves across the globe and now that the majority of our associates and their families are vaccinated, we are transitioning into a hybrid mode of working, with our associates choosing to spend time at both, office premises and working remotely,” in a statement.
Further adding, “We will be getting our employees back to offices in the coming months.”
“Work from Anywhere, Hybrid Teams and Asynchronous mode of collaboration are going to be some of the key traits of digital organizations. TCS boldly announced its own secure borderless workspaces (SBWSTM) vision – that by 2025, only 25 per cent of the workforce will work out of TCS facilities at any given time.”
So, the TCS work from home will continue even as the company expects its employees to return to their designated locations in order to adapt to the hybrid working model, as per reports.
Basically, the IT major wants only a fourth of its workforce to report to their offices at any given time under this TCS’ 25/25 model.
The IT firm believes that “the future shift is going to be a hybrid model with flexibility of work from anywhere. This evolution of workplace and working style is not just a short-term change but a revolution to the new world” as TCS said on its website.
