Less than six months after announcing increments in October 2020, Tata Consultancy Services has yet again announced hikes for its employees. The increments will be effective from April 1. Promotions will also come into effect as per the regular cycle.
In October last year, it had hiked salaries by six to eight per cent for its over four and a half lakh employees. With this second increment, the employees will, on an average, get 12 to 14 per cent hike in six months.
This is the IT company’s way of thanking its staff for their “resilience, adaptability and innovative mindset” that helped the Company sail through the challenges posed last year.
Tata Consultancy Services is probably the first information technology company to announce increments for the financial year 2022. Things seem to be looking up for the IT sector, as Accenture too announced a one-time bonus for its staff recently.
