Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), India’s leading IT services company, has denied reports that it sent strict warnings to employees who are not complying with its return-to-office policy. In a statement, a TCS spokesperson said that the company has been encouraging employees to work from the office for three days a week, but has not “communicated or deployed linkages to career or compensation”. The statement was released after Times of India carried a report saying TCS has started sending memos to employees who are not completing at least 12 days of work from the office in a month.
“We are excited to see our campuses buzzing with energy and want all our employees to be a part of that vibrant ecosystem. A significant number of employees have joined TCS in the last two years. It is important for them to experience the TCS environment to collaborate, learn, grow, and also have fun together, thus developing a stronger sense of belonging to the organization and enabling better integration,” the company spokesperson told NDTV.
The company had said last year that rostering will be based on project requirements, and a mix of freshers and experienced professionals will be called to the office.
