WFH coming to an end? IT firms are following these stringent guidelines

By Consultants Review Team Monday, 20 May 2024

Following the pandemic, work-from-home rules were adopted globally, resulting in a significant change in work habits for everyone. Numerous businesses still run entirely remote or hybrid operations. But now that the pandemic is over, some well-known IT firms are going back to the old-fashioned policies on working from home.

Innovative tactics are being used by IT businesses including Cognizant, Dell Technologies, Wipro, Infosys, and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) to entice workers back to the office.

The Cognizant work from home approach

According to a TOI story, Ravi Kumar, the CEO of Cognizant, unveiled a new tool that will assist managers in creating rosters according to operational requirements. Through this project, workers will be able to reserve seats within the organization and add to the functionality of the FlexiSeat app. The objective is to ensure better oversight of employee presence by monitoring and enforcing in-office work regulations.

TCS's "work from office" approach

A new policy has been implemented by Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) that ties an employee's quarterly variable compensation to their attendance at work. Workers who work 60–75% of the time in the office will earn 50% of their variable compensation; those who work less than 60% will not receive any.

Dell's office-based work approach

In order to measure staff presence and improve insight into attendance trends, Dell Technologies intends to install an electronic badge swipe system, VPN monitoring, and a color-coded attendance system.

Wipro's office-based work approach

In the meanwhile, Wipro is creating local councils to promote cooperation, associate engagement, and connection in order to cultivate a more inclusive workplace culture. In an effort to encourage staff members to work from business premises, Wipro also intends to expand on-campus events.

Infosys's office-based approach

Infosys, on the other hand, has adopted an alternative hybrid work paradigm. The employee experience platform of the Narayana Murthy-led company, InfyMe, enables designated business units to request up to 11 days of work-from-home every month. Prior to November 2020, the organization mandated that junior and mid-level staff members come back to work for 10 days per month.
