TCS provides its global, diverse workforce with a stimulating environment to aid both their personal and professional development. As on March 31, 2017, 387,223 employees worked with the company and its subsidiaries. Our workforce is predominantly young, with an average age of 29.7 years. TCS has been leveraging digital technologies extensively to reimagine its talent acquisition, talent development, and engagement functions.
Academic institutes are key partners in TCS’ talent acquisition strategy, and we remain the preferred employer at leading engineering campuses across India. Campus Commune, our academic engagement portal that helps students collaborate with their peer groups globally, now has over one million members registered across 19 countries. We also use programming contests such as TESTimony, EngiNx, GameOn, and CodeVita to spot and hire top talent.
Progressive Working Environment
TCS is an equal opportunity employer, and subscribes to the Tata Code of Conduct in embracing diversity in race, nationality, religion, ancestry, marital status, gender, age, ethnic origin, physical ability, and sexual orientation. Today, we are one of the world’s largest employers of women. Progressive policies such as extended parental leave, a mentoring program for junior women employees, special leadership development programs for senior employees, a virtual support group on child psychology, and parenting workshops for working parents have gone toward making the workplace more employee-friendly.
Our Center of Excellence for Accessibility works on IT solutions for differently-abled individuals, aiding their integration into the workforce. TCS also runs multiple initiatives to help employees grow in their careers, such as CareerHub, a platform that provides them with mentoring services. We also run Inspire, a specialized program that provides fast-track career progression to high-potential employees. Periodic leadership reviews help us maintain a healthy succession pipeline.
