We take pride in adhering to the Tata ‘code of conduct’ which is in place across the entire Tata Group. The code is a means of upholding and strengthening the trust reposed on us by our various stakeholders, be it our customers or the wider society.

Diversity at Work

TCS is an equal-opportunity employer and TCSers come from many nationalities and speak many languages. And, since we believe in celebrating everything under the sun, you will find us singing carols at Christmas and doing the dandiya dance at Navrathri with equal enthusiasm.

We are also habituated to do the regular outing, be it with our project teams, with Maitree or with just a bunch of other like-minded TCSers. We are off to treks, nature camps, picnics or just bus rides whenever we get the chance.

The Doors Are Always Open at TCS

Our senior colleagues follow an open-door policy in which any associate can approach the CEO and senior management with work-related problems.

Communication is a big word at TCS and you will be regularly taking part in webcasts and chat session through which important corporate issues or decisions on real-time basis are shared with associates worldwide.

We also have institutionalised open-house sessions and engagement programmes in which associates at all levels meet and discuss various work issues. In addition, TCSers can also take part in one-on-one sessions where they can interact privately with senior management. These sessions are helpful in providing mentorship, as well as understanding real-life issues that colleagues face at work. The queries and discussions are formally recorded and followed up:

The Better Half of TCS

Maitree, a fraternity comprising TCSers'spouses, was formed with the objective of bringing the large and geographically widespread TCS community under a common umbrella.

Maitree has two distinct objectives. Primarily, it serves as an information-sharing body where useful tidbits about living in a foreign country Which are the good schools in Minneapolis? Where do you get Indian spices in Stockholm? are shared by TCS employees and their families.

Maitree also functions as a forum where a wide range of socially relevant activities are conducted, be it improving the environment or taking care of the less privileged.

Training and Education

At TCS we see the training and education of our people as a continuous value-adding process. This approach hones, improves and enhances their skills and makes the organisation stronger.

TCS invests about 4 per cent of its annual revenues in training, a shining example of which can be seen at the state-of-the-art training centre in Thiruvananthapuram in the south Indian state of Kerala. Our training modules have been developed to serve the specific needs of individual employees, and are based on their needs at various stages of development in the organisation.

Consider our ‘induction training program’ (ITP), which is for all our recruits from engineering colleges. This is a specially designed, 77-day training course at the Thiruvananthapuram facility. The ITP is conducted with the objective of transforming engineers from diverse disciplines into software professionals.

Then there are the ‘continuing education programs’ (CEPs), which cover over 300 topics and can be delivered over a variety of channels: Classrooms, computers, audio/video, contact sessions, seminars, conferences and workshops.

Our dedicated training centre in Thiruvananthapuram, established in 1998, sprawls over 58, 000 square feet. The centre has 18 classrooms, a library, an auditorium, a conference hall, discussion rooms, and faculty and administrative areas. The facility has about 300 personal computers connected to servers.

TCS has 10 other centers in India fully equipped to conduct any type of training programme.
