During the pandemic, Infosys was among the companies that embraced remote work as a temporary solution.

However, the company has recently sent emails to entry to mid-level employees, urging them to transition back to office work for at least 10 days each month.

This move follows comments from Infosys co-founder, Narayana Murthy, who advocated that the youth of the country should work for 70 hours a week.

Last month, Infosys’ CEO, Salil Parekh, noted a gradual return of employees to the office while maintaining a flexible policy.

TCS Leads the Way with Mandatory Office Attendance

Notably, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a global software company, has already set a precedent by requiring its employees to work in the office five days a week starting last month.


In addition to this change, TCS has emphasized a dress code for its associates, urging them to uphold a professional appearance in the workplace.

Milind Lakkad, Chief Human Resources Officer at TCS, communicated to employees that the company wants its associates present in the office on all working days.


He emphasized the need to integrate recent hires who had worked in a virtual or hybrid environment.

Lakkad also stressed the importance of adhering to a dress code that calls for business casual attire from Monday to Thursday, with smart casual dress allowed on Fridays.
