Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is a great place to work, and our top priority is to keep it that way.
My job is to ensure that every employee can access the opportunities available to them and fast-track their digital career.
How we showcase our inclusive, collaborative, and supportive values as we engage and nurture talent is also essential to our bottom line. While most of us are aware of the cost and time involved in recruiting employees, studies also show that disengaged employees can cost a business around a third of their annual salary.
Much of my time is spent exploring and reinforcing what makes TCS a great place to work and discovering why many of our longest-serving employees have chosen to stick around. Here are some of the key elements:
TCS offers employees a curated programme across three levels for continuous learning. It includes internal certification — a valuable asset for career progression.
We also have a learning menu where employees can select courses like choosing electives at university. It increases competencies and, therefore, expands the scope of moving internally.
My colleague Emese Simahazi-Toth is just one example of how employees can benefit from these programmes. Emese joined TCS in 2002 and is now the Head of the IT Unit at TCS in Hungary, overseeing 50 client relationships and 500 employees. She was initially hired as a junior Java developer and learned on the job. Additional TCS management training and mentoring helped Emese on a career journey that’s seen her thrive.
