Changes in Work From Home Policies: Following in TCS’s Footsteps, Infosys Alters Remote Work Rules
Significant shifts are underway in work-from-home policies, with India’s IT giant Infosys making substantial changes. This news has generated mixed reactions among employees. According to ET, Infosys has modified its work-from-home policy, mandating that employees, particularly those in junior positions, spend at least 10 days working from the office each month. Infosys’ recent move is expected to influence other IT firms, potentially leading to similar work-from-home policy adjustments shortly.
Mixed Emotions Among Employees
The recent work-from-home policy shift at Infosys has elicited a spectrum of emotions among its employees. Some are delighted by the opportunity to return to the office for a few days each month, while others are disgruntled, as they prefer the convenience and cost savings of remote work. This adjustment was communicated through a mail from the company’s Vice President and echoes similar requests made by TCS and Wipro. However, Wipro has yet to implement its work-from-office request and is only encouraging employees who are willing to work on-site. One challenge voiced by employees pertains to the financial burden of paying full rent despite only needing the office for 10 days a month, raising the question of whether remote work should continue as is or shift to a complete in-office model.
