Mumbai: Tata Consultancy Services (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organisation, has been recognised as one of world’s best employers by the Top Employer Institute for the third year running. TCS was certified for its exceptional employee offerings by the independent body from a pool of more than 1,300 companies in 113 countries around the world.

The Top Employer Institute has over 25 years’ experience recognising the world’s leading organisations in the field of HR management and employee conditions – providing the optimum environment for employees to develop, both professionally and personally.

This year, TCS has again been awarded the Top Employers Global certification, making it one of only a handful of organisations to achieve this accreditation on a worldwide level. TCS picked up the latest Top Employer endorsement for 27 of its individual country teams across Europe, Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America and the Middle East.

Ajoy Mukherjee, executive vice president and global head, human resources, TCS commented, “As global business evolves into the ‘post-digital’ era - with the likes of AI, cloud and robotics changing the way companies operate and are structured - the nature of work is also changing.  With this shift well underway, it’s vital that we prepare our employees for life in the next generation workplace and equip them with new, state-of-the-art skills they can use for years to come.

“Through our digital technology and business agility programmes, our teams develop exciting and innovative experience that they can combine with their contextual knowledge of our customers to deliver better value and ultimately help solve their business challenges.

“This global recognition from the Top Employer Institute for a third year running is a testament to the significant investments we’re making in our people to prepare them for the Business 4.0 era, and highlights the exciting opportunities we’re providing for development and growth within the company.”

The Top Employer rankings are finalised following in-depth research into 600 HR practices across nine key criteria: talent strategy, workforce planning, on-boarding, learning and development, performance management, leadership development, career and succession management, compensation and benefits and company culture.

All companies must also complete a stringent research process and meet the required high standard in order to achieve the certification. In order to reinforce the validity of the process, all answers were independently audited, meaning that TCS’ outstanding employee conditions has earned them a coveted spot among a choice group of certified Global Top Employers.
