Indian global information technology (IT) services and consulting company, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), has been adjudged the best employer in the UK, by the Top Employers Institute. This is the third consecutive year that TCS has been recognised as the top employer in the last one decade, thanks to its employee-friendly practices, progressive policies, and focus on local talent. Not surprisingly, the Company boasts of an envious retention rate of 12.2 per cent in the last one year.
The Company, which happens to be the largest recruiter of IT talent in the UK, has been continuously investing in the development of its talent pool, with special focus on programmes for the professional development and digital skilling of local talent. Its efforts to facilitate entry-level talent through various initiatives, such as Rising Stars, Emerging Leaders and the Leadership Exchange, have been appreciated.
Growing by about 20 per cent in the last financial year, TCS has been collaborating with certain big British organisations to help them transform and grow as well. Little wonder then that TCS has been recognised as one of the top three IT and IT-enabled services provider in Britain.
Its commitment to diversity is clear from the fact that TCS’ workforce comprises young talent from 54 nationalities, and a significant 28 per cent of the staff is made up of women.
