It’s known that IT majors started laying off thousands of employees but TCS stands out in the crowd by saying ‘NO’ to downsize.
Rajesh Gopinathan, CEO and MD of TCS, said that they don’t lay off employees instead have plans to create more jobs when asked if there were any plans of laying-off employees.
TCS operates in 45 countries and has over 387,000 of the world’s best trained consultants. We are here to create jobs, not to downsize, he asserted after TCS launched a BPO centre to create new opportunities as part of the government’s Digital India push.
Rajesh Gopinathan assured that TCS is not going to follow suit like Wipro, Infosys and Cognizant, Tech Mahindra which are in the process of sacking employees.
Later, TCS spokesperson Pradipta Bagchi said the IT sector has a bright future in the country with the Digital India initiative on the right track. “We are looking forward to expand and spread our business and connect with more and more people.”
By saying ‘NO’, TCS made a hall-mark that it will never walk in the footsteps of its competitors. TCS is known for mass recruitment of candidates. Hope it creates even more jobs and continues to grow economically.
