Infosys Ends Work From Home For Employees; Comes With A 3-phase Hybrid Scheme
November 15, 2022: In the first phase of Infosys’ office plan, employees can come to the office twice a week based on their convenience.
In the next phase, employees can either take a transfer or shift to a branch office of their choice. In the final phase, Infosys will use feedback from both phases to determine its hybrid-work policy.
Indian IT major Infosys is ending work from home for its employees and asking them to report back to the office but in phases.
The Bengaluru-based firm has drawn up a three-phase operation from office plan for the transition. This comes after CEO Salil Parekh said last month that Infosys would continue with its flexible approach to employees working from home.
Now, the IT major has briefed its employees on a three-phase work from office plan in internal communications. Krishnamurthy Shankar, executive vice president and group head of HR development, said their approach will give employees flexibility and is not a “one-size-fits-all approach”.
“It will be exciting to see how our teams will explore their own returns to the office plan by creatively and pragmatically blending project and business requirements with the convenience of collective working,” Shankar said, according to a report in ToI.
Three Phase Work of Infosys from Office Plan – In the first phase employees can come to the office twice a week depending on their convenience.
As part of the next phase, employees will have the freedom to either take a transfer or shift to a branch office of their choice.
In the final phase, Infosys will use feedback from both phases to determine its hybrid-work policy. At Infosys’ India office, there are about 45,000 employees in the office at any given time, CEO Parekh said last month.
“We are finding that the approach taken so far has received a good response,” he said, adding that the number is slowly increasing.
Meanwhile, India’s largest IT services company TCS sent an email to its employees in September saying that it is mandatory for all to work from the office at least three days a week.
Managers will create a roster, and adherence to the roster is mandatory, the firm said. Days after TCS, Wipro also asked its staff to work from the office at least three days a week from October 10.
An IT company terminated the services of 300 employees after they were found to be moonlighting for a rival firm.
