TCS recognised again as a top UK employer
TCS rated in the top 10 UK businesses and accredited for fifth consecutive year by the Top Employer Institute
London | Mumbai: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS) a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organisation, has been recognised as one of the UK’s top 10 employers by the Top Employers Institute.
TCS was ranked in the top 10 of just 78 employers to achieve accreditation as a UK Top Employer. Acrreditation is based on in-depth research into nine core HR criteria: talent strategy, workforce planning, on-boarding, learning and development, performance management, leadership development, career and succession management, compensation and benefits and company culture.
Established over 25 years ago, the Top Employers’ certification is designed to identify and recognise the world’s leading organisations in the field of HR management and employee conditions – providing the optimum environment for employees to develop, both professionally and personally.
Nupur Singh Mallick, HR director, TCS, UK and Ireland, said: “We are thrilled to be positioned again as one of the UK’s Top 10 Employers. As one of the largest IT and digital employers in the UK, with an industry-leading employee retention rate of over 94 percent, TCS place huge value on providing an environment that focuses on individual aptitude, talent and interests. We strive to provide an inspirational environment for our employees that gives them the platform to succeed, whilst offering customers a talent pool with expertise that exceeds their industry benchmarks.”
James Gooding, director of operations, Top Employers Institute, commented: “Our comprehensive independent research and stringent auditing revealed that TCS provides an exceptional employee experience, nurturing and developing talent throughout all levels of the organisation. It has demonstrated its status in the HR environment, striving to optimise its employment practices and to develop all its employees.”
TCS works with more than 150 UK customers and helps them to adapt to the opportunities and challenges of the digital economy. They include some of Britain’s best known brands: Aviva, Boots, British Airways, Lloyds, BT, Diageo, National Grid, NEST, Marks & Spencer, Thames Water and Virgin Atlantic.
This accolade builds on a number of recent awards in recognition of the company’s employee engagement and development activities. Last year alone, TCS was named ‘company of the year’ at the 2016 Employee Engagement Awards and was recognised as one of The Times Top 50 Employers for Women in the UK.
