This cloud-based services provider has offices in Mumbai, Hyderabad, Pune, Bangalore, Gurugram and Jaipur.

company Its CEO, Arundhati Bhattacharya said that Salesforce’s focus in India is on banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI) and manufacturing. “We have over 7,500 employees. We expect this number to increase to around 10,000 by the beginning of next year,” he said. Regarding working from office after the pandemic, Bhattacharya said, “We will see more and more workforce returning to the office.” He said that when people come to the office, mutual cooperation and connection increases.

Global IT services company Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has asked its staff to work from office at least three days a week. The company has told in an email sent to the employees that according to the roster made by its supervisor, it will have to work from office for three days in a week. On behalf of the company against the employees who violate it action can be done.

However, no timeline has been given for this in the email. Employees have been asked to contact their HR business partners for further details. A few weeks ago, TCS encouraged employees to come to office through social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. The company tried to educate the employees about the benefits of working from office. TCS has made a 25×25 plan. This is a new operating model in which only 25 percent of its workforce will be present in the office at any given time. This plan will be fully implemented in the next three years.
