TCS to bring 80 pc of workers back to office: Report
Bengaluru/IBNS: TCS is preparing to get 80-85 percent of its workers back to its offices as the pace of coronavirus vaccination gains momentum, media reports said.
India's largest IT company has vaccinated 70 percent of its employees and 95 percent of employees have been given at least one dose, Money Control reported.
On October 8, TCS COO NG Subramaniam said the employees at the senior level will be encouraged and those who had taken the two jabs of the vaccine to come to campuses, the report added.
Already, some of the officials from the company's management and delivery side are back to work in the last few weeks.
“From the current 95-98 percent working remotely, we want 80-85 percent of employees back to offices,” Subramaniam was quoted as saying in the report.
He said this was in line with the company's 25 by 25 policy where the company will have only 25 percent of workers in offices by 2025, it informed.
While it will be necessary for some roles to come to the office frequently such as those employed on the infrastructure server.
Project managers can decide on how frequently employees are required to come to office depending on customer needs.
“We left it to the units and the project manager whether you want to work two days a week, one week, a month, or let's say one month, and then the next two months you go offline, it's very different. That's up to you to see how you want to manage this. Plus, there are always situations like separate client visits. So there is a certain amount of plasticity and flexibility but on average we believe that the 25 by 25 model will pan out and I'm not in a hurry to roll up a private notice even when we announce it,” he added, the report stated.
