Tarun Reflex

September 18, 2008

According to a recent report Asia’s largest software exporter, Tata Consultancy Services is gearing up to another round of layoffs. The company also plans to discourage employees from staying on bench for more than two months on any of its centres.

Incidentally, the company had also fired close to 500 employees, citing poor performance after its annual appraisal. It was also among the very first companies to announce a cut in the employee variable pay across the board.

The company which sees some project delays this quarter, but no cancellations, terms this as an employee utilisation exercise. The process will involve counselling employees and training them. Employees would be asked to undertake projects on which they have never worked on and will have to update their skills.

Recently, TCS also retrenched 15 employees from its Australian subsidiary. Interestingly, last month too, the company had shown door to some 25 employees from its Kolkata and Bangalore centers for fudging CVs.

By June-end, the total employee strength TCS stood at 116,300, across 64 countries. The company hired 8,982 employees in the first quarter.
