Confession of one employee over public tcs forum :
Hi , 27, Male - TCS Pune..
I did my Masters in Business Administration from XIMB Orissa... I got placed in TCS in Consulting with package of 8 lakhs in 2019. I worked for 7-8 months in Pune. I stayed in a shared PG with rent of 10k..I used to get 60k in hand salary.. I used to save 25k after spending on food,rent,etc....
Buttons I found Pune expensive as compared to Bhubneshwar.. Then COVID came and I started to work from home. I made a lot of savings. My package, too became 10 lakhs now..Whatever salary was credited, it used to remain in account...so I saved around 20 lakhs.. while working from home in a town near Bhubneshwar. Then came 2022 , and TCS HR said in news that employees will get permanent work from home after 2025, only they will come to office for a limited time..maybe once/twice in a month for business meetings,etc... So now I got a sense of security and my parents thought I will be settled here in my town...I loved a girl near my hometown..She was not that skilled in IT skills but was a perfect homemaker and housewife...chances of her getting a job in IT are very low...but I loved her...
I got married and started to work from home from my town near Bhubneshwar. But in last 2-3 months, my managers have started asking me to come to office in Pune...for 5 days a week.....I don't want to come to Pune as it is very expensive...Lot of traffic.. and Bhubneshwar culture is different from Pune...I feel good in Bhubneshwar only..Neither my wife likes Pune, not she would be able to support me financially in Pune...We can have a perfect life in Bhubneshwar...But in Pune, I won't be able to handle all the expenses of a big city.. 1 /2 bhk flat for me and my wife.... will cost 15-20k near TCS Pune office...My in hand salary is still 70k..Which won't be sufficient to live in Pune.. My wife is homemaker and not progressive working woman..My marriage happened as I was settled in my town near Bhubneshwar...
My manager has rejected my request of transfer to Bhubneshwar or report from Bhubneshwar office as whole team is in Pune..
What should I do now?
Indian multinational information technology (IT) services and consulting giant Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has sent emails to staff requiring them to work from office at least three days a week. Employees at TCS were informed in an internal email where they were informed that they would need to work from the office three days a week, according to the roster set by their individual supervisors.
The email did not provide a deadline for the staff members, but it did ask them to get in touch with their HR business partners for more information.
Earlier, TCS had taken a social media approach to persuade the employees to come to office. TCS used platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram in a campaign started a few weeks ago.
The software services company tried to evoke nostalgia about working from the office via social media posts.
TCS 25x25 model
According to TCS 25x25 plan, the IT giant would adopt a new operating model in which only 25% of its workforce would be in the office at any given point in time. The plan will be introduced in a phased manner by 2025.
“Whenever the pandemic is contained and we start normalizing, we will start transitioning to a more hybrid working model in line with our Vision 25x25, that captures all the benefits of the remote model and addresses its challenges," a top executive had said.'
“We envisage that by year 2025, no more than 25% of our employees would need to be at a TCS facility at a point in time, and no individual would have to spend more than 25% of their time at a TCS facility to be 100% productive. We believe this is a more balanced approach, and will give our employees the best of both worlds. In this model, the role of the office itself will change significantly."
TCS MAIL :
As you are aware, we have started work from office and our senior leaders have been working from TCS offices for a while now as things have become normal. It is now time that our larger teams should start working from office as well. This will also be an opportunity to welcome a significant number of our new colleagues, who have joined us over the last two years most of whom have not yet been to a TCS office.
As part of our 'Return to Office' initiative, all TCSers are expected to work from office at least 3 days a week. Your respective managers will now roster you to work from TCS office and you shall receive notifications regarding the same. In case you need any support, please reach out to your HR Business Partner.
Kindly note that adherence to rostering is mandatory and your attendance will be tracked. Needless to mention, any non-compliance will be taken seriously, and administrative measures may be applied.
I am sure each one of you will comply to the requirement of 'Return to Office' and will help in making the workplace vibrant again.
Looking forward to see you in office!
