Bengaluru/IBNS: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is all set to start the preperations for its '25/25' model which is expected to be implemented by 2025.
"Under the new model, by 2025, no more than 25 percent of our employees will need to work from the office at any given point, and will not need to spend more than 25 percent of their time in office," a TCS spokesperson said on Tuesday, reported NDTV.
"At present, we have about 5 percent of our associates working from offices. Towards the end of CY'21 (the calendar year 2021), we will encourage our associates to return to offices, at least initially, before we switch to the 25/25 model," the company said. The transition "will be done in a phased and flexible manner," the spokesperson added, the report said.
After the Covid-19 cases fell sharply in India, TCS naked its employees to get back to their deputed location (their base branch) by November 15.
TCS noted that "the 25/25 model is an important design element, and it will take a couple of years for the model to mature."
Furthermore, the company also launched a vaccination drive for its employees and dependents in what it called the biggest corporate inoculation drive in the country.
"Currently, over 70 percent of our workforce in India are fully vaccinated and more than 95 percent have received at least one dose of the Covid vaccine," the IT major added.
"Through the pandemic, we have stayed connected virtually with our teams and delivered on our key priorities. We are now excited to connect back in person with our associates," TCS further said.
