Top IT giants TCS, Infosys, Wipro, Cognizant to ask employees to work from office

New Delhi: Big IT companies are again considering asking their employees to gradually go back to work from office.

Although the companies announced that employees would be asked to return to the office last September, Omicron’s rising cases and local lockdown impeded decisions.

Top IT companies like TCS, Wipro, Cognizant and Infosys want to do away with the provision of work from home and are asking employees to return to office, the report said.

Wipro has asked all managerial-level employees, both of whom have received dozens of vaccinations, to return to offices by March 3. Wipro, however, is going to start working two days a week from the office pattern. Meanwhile, the rest of the employees can continue to work from home.

Tech giant Cognizant is also planning to reopen the office. However, it will not be mandatory for the employees. Cognizant will ask employees to return to office on a voluntary basis from April. The newspaper reported that Cognizant is planning to reopen offices in a phased manner.

TCS will also allow its employees to work on a hybrid model, which means they can continue to work from home and sometimes stay in office premises. Similarly, Infosys will adopt a hybrid model for its employees in the next few months.
