With the effect of the second wave of the pandemic slowly waning and vaccination picking up, several IT companies are slowly calling employees back to their offices.

With the strong improvement in economic sentiment and activity, there is also a push from companies to restore normalcy and business as usual
In good news for employees, accounting and consulting firm PwC has introduced a new policy to allow its employees to work from home for a lifetime. Recently, in a statement, the consulting firm announced that it will allow its 40,000 US client services employees to work virtually.
As Coronavirus cases are declining and with vaccination picking up, the world is expecting to return to normalcy again. When the pandemic started in March 2020, the entire corporate world was forced to adopt Work from Home (WFH) policy to tackle the outbreak. But, it also can't be denied that they have been quite successful in doing so.
It's no secret that employee-employer wrangle over returning to office is growing day by day. Almost two years into the Coronavirus pandemic, many big IT companies such as TCS, Infosys, Wipro, Microsoft, Amazon, and others are still continuing their work from home policy.
In a bid to tackle the spread of the Coronavirus among employees, companies sent their employees home. In a few days, companies have had to adopt a pure work from home or in some cases they chose a hybrid model.
In an attempt to rejuvenate its employees, a cyber security company announced four-day work week. On Monday (September 27), the cyber security firm, TAC Security announced that it has shifted to 4-day work week policy for better productivity.

It can't be denied that the COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on people's lives, work, jobs, and almost every aspect of life. After the sudden outbreak of the Covid pandemic last year, hundreds of companies were forced to adopt remote work or the work from home policy to continue businesses.
IT behemoth Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), which employs more than 5 lakh people, is reportedly planning to end work from home and return to the office by December this year.
After 18 months, though there are many tech companies that have decided to continue remote work, some IT firms are reportedly planning to bring employees back to the office. As per reports, IT firms are taking this decision as Covid-19 cases are steadily declining and most employees are vaccinated. Leading IT firms such as TCS, Wipro and Apple are reportedly asking their employees to follow the hybrid style of working, where one is expected to work for 2-3 days from office and the next 2-3 days from home.
After a long gap of 18 months, one of the leading IT firms, Wipro is all set to call back its employees to the offices! With this, the third-largest tech company in India, reportedly became the first IT firm to publicly announce the return of some of its senior employees to office. Taking to Twitter, Wipro Chairman, Rishad Premji informed that the company's leadership would resume work from office, twice a week, starting from Monday (September 13).
When a lethal coronavirus pandemic hit India last year, hundreds of companies were forced to shut their offices overnight and adapt to new ways of working. And soon, work from home culture became a new normal in the country.
It seems to be good news for all the employees working for IT firms located in IT hub Bengaluru. The Karnataka government has urged the IT companies to extend work from home till December 2022.
