The ongoing pandemic has changed quite a few things in our lives and one of the major changes it has brought for most of us is the work from home trend.
And, one such company that is already working to change the work culture is India’s biggest IT firm, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS).
Work from home is the new norm: Post-COVID, 75% of 4.5 lakh TCS employees to permanently work from home by ’25; from 20% https://t.co/RBCLbLRErg— Amitabh Kant (@amitabhk87) April 28, 2020
According to reports, TCS has revealed that it will follow the work from home trend even after the lockdown ends and by 2025 they aim to reduce their number of employees working in the office by 25%.
75% of TCS’ workforce to work from home permanently by 2025— Kapil (@kapsology) April 29, 2020
I can see more companies moving to work-from-home model only after Post-COVIDhttps://t.co/LGDcFFO2yx
So, this means by 2025, 75% of its employees will be allowed to work from home.
The firm also believes that it’s not necessary to have all employees attending office to have 100% productivity. TCS Chief Operating Officer (COO) NG Subramaniam calls this their 25/25 model. In an interview with Money Control he says:
We believe that with this particular model and way of working, we will be in a position to achieve about 25% improvement in velocity, throughput productivity.
And, it’s not just TCS that is looking to move to a remote working model. Even Infosys CEO Salil Parekh and Wipro CEO Abidali Neemuchwala share similar views.
This is huge and many Twitter users also believe that this is the way forward and other companies should consider doing the same.

Way to go! If many cos start adopting this as a regular business practice soon our roads would be decongested and pollution will reduce.— Bob (@Bob23159) April 29, 2020
