Infosys wishes for its employees to return to office. The Company has internally communicated to its employees that the return-to-office will be implemented in three phases.
The Indian IT services firm will reportedly adopt an approach that will allow some level of flexibility to the employees, and the same will vary across roles and departments.
As per the first phase, employees will be working from office twice a week basis their convenience.
The second phase will see them enjoying the liberty to choose which branch office they would like to relocate to or be transferred to, of the 247 offices of the Company, across 54 countries.
In the third phase, Infosys will analyse the outcomes and feedback of the first two phases and draw up a model / policy for hybrid working.
The approach will of course be designed with utmost thought and practicality taking into account the need to collaborate, project requirements and convenience of the stakeholders.
Salil Parekh, CEO, Infosys had reportedly said that the Company will provide all the support needed so that more employees are encouraged to return to office. At the same time, he had also said that Infosys will provide flexibility wherever possible and wherever the clients/ nature of projects allows.
Clearly, a one-size-fits-all model will not work, and this was reportedly communicated in the mail by Krishnamurthy Shankar, executive VP and group head, human resource development, Infosys.
