Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has extended the deadline for employees to return to the office until March, warning of “severe repercussions” for those who continue to work remotely, according to a report by The Economic Times.

The company, known as a software giant, has termed this move as the “final call” for employees who are still operating from home. TCS had previously mandated a return to the office five days a week starting in October last year.

NG Subramaniam, the COO of TCS, emphasized the importance of employees returning to the office, citing concerns about work culture and security issues as primary reasons behind the decision.

Subramaniam highlighted the increased risk of cyberattacks in the current context and stressed the importance of having proper controls in place, which are more challenging to implement in a remote working environment.

The company aims to revert to its pre-pandemic work culture and move away from the hybrid model that was adopted during the Covid-19 pandemic. Subramaniam expressed concerns about the lack of face-to-face interaction, noting that around 40,000 people joined and left the company entirely online during the pandemic, which he believes is not conducive to the organization’s goals.

During the earnings announcement for the December quarter on January 11, TCS revealed that 65% of its employees had been attending the office for up to three days a week.

TCS currently has a headcount exceeding 616,000 employees.
