It cannot be denied that the pandemic has hit the corporate sector hard as it has changed the dynamics of work culture around the world.
In March 2020, hundreds of businesses were forced to close their offices overnight and had to adopt a work-from-home policy.
After 18 months, although many tech companies have decided to continue working remotely, some IT companies are reportedly planning to bring their employees back to the office.
According to national media reports (India Times), IT companies are making this decision as Covid-19 cases are steadily declining and most employees are vaccinated. Leading IT companies such as TCS, Wipro and Apple would ask their employees to follow the hybrid work style, where one is expected to work 2-3 days from the office and the next 2-3 days from home .
Earlier on September 13, senior executives at Wipro returned to power after 18 months.
They will work from the office, twice a week.
India’s largest employer, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), reportedly plans to recall more than 80 percent of its employees back to the office. However, Rajesh Gopinathan, the CEO of TCS said the decision would depend on the third wave of Covid-19.
Several other large companies such as Infosys, Apple, HCL Technologies, Nagarro and Nasscom reportedly intend to follow the hybrid work model and recall employees to the office.
