It can't be denied that the pandemic hit the corporate sector hard as it changed the dynamics of the work culture worldwide.
In March, 2020, hundreds of companies were forced to shut down their offices overnight and had to adopt work-from-home policy.
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 in national media (India Times), 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.
Earlier on September 13, senior leaders at Wipro returned to office after 18 months.
They will work from office, twice a week.
India's largest employer Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is reportedly planning to call back over 80 per cent of its employees to office. However, Rajesh Gopinathan, the CEO of TCS said the decision would depend on the Covid-19 third wave.
Several other major companies such as Infosys, Apple, HCL Technologies, Nagarro, and Nasscom are reportedly planning to follow the hybrid model of work and call back employees to office.
