The work-from-home era is coming to an end for employees of Tata Consultancy Services (TCS). TCS, a leading Indian multinational IT services and consulting company, has extended the deadline for employees to return to the office until the end of March. However, failure to comply may result in severe repercussions, as reported by The Economic Times.
This marks TCS’s final call for employees who have been working remotely. Previously, in October 2023, the company had made it compulsory for employees to be in the office five days a week. NG Subramaniam, TCS’s Chief Operating Officer, emphasized the importance of returning to the office, citing concerns about work culture and security issues.
The primary goal is to revert to the pre-pandemic work environment, where employees collaborate in person, moving away from the hybrid model necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic. TCS aims to restore its traditional work culture now that the situation has improved. During the pandemic, the company witnessed a significant shift to online work, with thousands joining and leaving without any offline interaction.
Tata Consultancy Services, a part of the Tata Group, has a global presence and partners with many of the world’s largest businesses. With a current workforce exceeding 616,000, TCS remains committed to its transformation journey alongside its clients.
