Deadline looms: TCS employees face strict action if they fail to return to office within two weeks

The return-to-office mandate issued by Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has intensified as the deadline for employees to resume in-office work approaches. 

With less than two weeks remaining until the end of March, TCS has underscored the importance of a traditional office setup, emphasizing the value of in-person collaboration and workplace culture. 

TCS CEO K Krithivasan clearly stated ‘We Are Not For Work From Home’. “I believe work from home/hybrid model is not the right way to grow both individually as well as for organizations. As an organization, we value collaboration and camaraderie and this cannot be achieved through Zoom calls or other online medium. Also, as much 30-40 per cent of our associates have joined us since the pandemic and if they don’t come to the office, how do they learn these values and organizational cultures?”, he added.

Renowned for its stringent work ethos, TCS has maintained a steadfast stance on the necessity of employees’ physical presence on office premises.

In alignment with TCS’s directive, employees who have yet to return to the office face strict repercussions for non-compliance with the mandated return-to-office policy. Chief Operating Officer NG Subramaniam reiterated the company’s unwavering commitment to workplace presence, highlighting security concerns and the imperative need for a cohesive work environment. 

TCS aims to mitigate potential vulnerabilities associated with remote work, including cybersecurity risks, by reinstating an office-centric culture.

The deadline extension granted until the end of March serves as a final ultimatum for employees to transition back to office premises. Any further delays or non-adherence to the prescribed timeline will result in severe consequences, reflecting TCS’s unwavering resolve to uphold traditional work norms. 

By reinstating in-office operations, TCS seeks to foster employee interaction, bolster organizational development, and facilitate a seamless transition away from the hybrid work model necessitated by the pandemic.
