TCS wins two awards in the Forbes 2017 Global 2000 list
Independent survey ranks Tata Consultancy Services among the top regarded companies and the world’s best employers in the 2017 Global 2000 list
Mumbai: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organisation, has been recognised as one of the top regarded companies and one of the world’s best employers in the Forbes 2017 Global 2000 list.
Based on the 2017 Global 2000 list of the world’s biggest public companies published by Forbes earlier this year, Forbes Media and Statista Inc have recently published smaller lists of the best performing companies under different categories based on global polls.
To identify the top regarded companies, some 15,000 respondents from 60 countries were polled online to evaluate the Global 2000 companies’ reputation along four dimensions: trustworthiness / honesty, social conduct, company as an employer and performance of the product / services.
TCS was among the companies receiving the highest total scores in that poll, ranked #1 across all industries in India and at #4 globally in the Computer Services industry.
TCS was also named as one of the Global 2000 - World’s Best Employers. The list was compiled by analysing over 360,000 global recommendations collected through a global poll and different regional surveys wherein employees were asked to rate their own employer (internal perception) as well as recommend other employers (public perception).
Being part of the Tata group and guided by the Tata Code of Conduct, TCS has sought to uphold the highest levels of transparency, fairness and ethical behaviour in all its dealings, resulting in a very high level of trust among all stakeholders. TCS’ investments as well as the volunteering effort put in by TCS’ employees in various social initiatives across the world have won global recognition and created immense goodwill in every community the company touches.
In recent months, TCS was listed in Fortune magazine’s Change the World 50 list of companies that have had a positive social impact through activities which are part of their core business strategy. In addition, TCS has been recognised as the Global Top Employer across 27 countries and has been named among the most honoured companies in Asia in Institutional Investor’s 2017 All Asia Executive Poll.
“The trust and goodwill we have built up over the years – through the work we do for our customers, our progressive and employee-friendly HR policies, our transparency and commitment to shareholder interests, and all our community initiatives – form the foundation on which we have built the TCS brand which is now ranked among the Top 3 brands in the IT Services industry globally,” said Ravi Viswanathan, chief marketing officer, TCS. “This recognition from Forbes is a further validation of the strong reputation we have built up globally over the years by doing the right thing for all our stakeholders.”
