50,000 TCS Employees Will Now Work 3 Days In Office; Salary Will Increase By Upto 8% For All TCS Employees!
India’s most profitable company & IT mammoth TCS (Tata Consultancy Services), which employs about 60000 people, has announced that it will call its employees to office from this month.
The company said that currently only the top level employees will be asked to visit the office and that too not for a week but 3 days. Remainder 2 days, they can work from home like they have been doing.
