TCS CEO K Krithivasan expressed confidence that most employees will be back in the office in the next couple of quarters.
Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) CEO and MD K Krithivasan said that the return to office policy has worked well for the IT services giant to maintain its organisational culture. He added that almost 65 percent of its associates are going to the office 3-5 days a week, just a quarter after this policy was implemented and followed by its peers.
“Our position on ‘return to office’ is to ensure that the associates get the best value and our organisational culture is maintained. So these two have been our key reasons behind encouraging associates to come back to office. We have almost 65 percent of the associates are coming back to office at least for three to five days. And we are working with them. We are sending positive incentives for them to come back to office on all five days. I’m sure we’ll get there in a couple of quarters,” Krithivasan said.
This was a major shift from TCS earlier 25X25 vision announced in 2020 by former CEO Rajesh Gopinathan. According to this plan, by 2025, only 25 percent of its associates will need to work out of its facilities at any point of time. Also, the employees will not need to spend more than 25 percent of their time at work.
