TCS, Wipro, Infosys: Work from Home to End; How IT Companies Plan to Call Employees Back

Covid-19 cases have dipped significantly as India vaccinated more than one crore citizens as of Friday and in a situation like this, top IT companies like the Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), Infosys HCL Technologies and others have revealed plans to call their employees back to office, ending a more than one year practice of work from home regime amid the pandemic situation.

Information Technology major TCS has said it will call back its employees to their office desks since about 70 per cent of them have been fully vaccinated and around 95 per cent have received at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine during the ongoing jab drive across the country.

“With 70 per cent of TCSers (employees of TCS) fully vaccinated, and over 95 per cent having received at least one dose, we plan to gradually get our workforce back in office by the end of this year,” chief HR officer of the company Milind Lakkad said, while announcing the updates regarding the earnings for the quarter ending in September.

TCS, India’s biggest IT outsourcing company, had earlier talked about plans to call back 90 per cent of its employees by the end of this year or by the beginning of 2022. However, the company had thrown light on its 2025 model, according to which 25 per cent of its total workforce will be working from home till 2025. The top brass of the company had also ensured the full safety of its employees, who all will resume working from the office.
