Software services and outsourcing provider Tata Consultancy Services, India’s largest software services company, has been recognized as one of the UK’s top 10 employers by Top Employers Institute. The recognition is based on a research into nine core human resources (HR) criteria set by the Top Employers Institute, global certification company recognising excellence in the conditions that employers create for their people. The key criteria includes talent strategy, workforce planning, on-boarding, learning and development, performance management, leadership development, career and succession management, compensation and benefits and company culture.
“As one of the largest IT and digital employers in the UK, with an industry-leading employee retention rate of over 94 per cent, TCS place huge value on providing an environment that focuses on individual aptitude, talent and interests,” said Nupur Singh Mallick, HR Director, TCS UK and Ireland, in a Friday statement.
The company 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, he added.
According to James Gooding, director of operations at Top Employers Institute, the institute’s comprehensive independent research and stringent auditing revealed that TCS provides an exceptional employee experience, nurturing and developing talent throughout all levels of the organisation.
“TCS has demonstrated its status in the HR environment, striving to optimise its employment practices and to develop all its employees,” Gooding said.
The Indian IT services company currently 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.
The Top Employers Institute recognition builds on a number of recent awards in recognition of TCS’ 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.
