TCS bags “Best Employer” award 9th time in a row

New Delhi, Mar 7 (UNI) For the 9th time in a row, Tata Group flagship company, TCS has been recognized as a Global Top Employer by the Top Employers Institute, a global authority that honours excellence in people practices.

TCS’s pioneering employee engagement and talent development initiatives have reinforced its position as a global employer of choice for the ninth consecutive year. The global certification follows a series of localized certifications, with TCS being named a top employer in 32 countries and regions, including Europe, the UK, the Middle East, North America, Latin America, and South-East Asia.

Steered by the values of the Tata Group, TCS is dedicated to creating a supportive and inclusive workplace with extensive development opportunities and well-being initiatives. Employee-centricity is a core value for TCS, which employs a diverse workforce of 603,305 employees in 55 countries representing 153 nationalities (as of December 31, 2023), a company statement on stock exchanges said.

Women make up 35.7 per cent of its workforce. David Plink, Chief Executive Officer, Top Employers Institute, said, “TCS is a longstanding certified Top Employer. Starting country by country, then regional and now for years already a leading Global Top Employer. This is a testament to the people-centricity and vision at TCS. A true partnership between employer and employees.”

TCS was certified as a top employer based on a rigorous HR Best Practices Survey that evaluated six fundamental HR domains and 20 topics, including work environment, diversity and inclusion, talent acquisition, people strategy, well-being, and learning.

While TCS excelled in all categories, it received special appreciation for two industry-first initiatives—the Engagement with Purpose framework and the TCS Elevate program for people development.

The ‘Engagement with Purpose’ framework redefines employee engagement by focusing on the holistic well-being of employees. TCS employees have benefited from the various lifestyle, social, community, and learning initiatives.

TCS Elevate, a learning-based talent transformation program calibrated to cater to all levels, has fuelled the career growth trajectory of over 428,000 employees so far. In the Employee Health & Wellness category, TCS ranked second among all other participant organizations.

TCS was one of the first in the industry to launch a mental well-being initiative for its associates. TCS Cares offers free access to professional medical help and self-help tools for mental healthcare for employees and their families. TCS Fit4Life is another unique initiative that promotes holistic wellbeing by encouraging associates to eat healthy, walk more, exercise regularly, and destress for a better quality of life.

Milind Lakkad, Chief Human Resources Officer, TCS, said, “To be recognized as a global top employer by the Top Employers Institute is a validation of our talent engagement and transformation practices across the globe. While it is humbling to receive this certification for the ninth consecutive year, it is satisfying to see TCS honoured on a world stage for its people practices.
