TCS recognized as one of the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ in North America
Tata Consultancy Services recognized for building an employee culture of professional and personal growth across North America for the sixth consecutive year
NEW YORK | TORONTO: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, has been recognized as one of the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ in North America for the sixth consecutive year. This annual award recognizes top employers that display leadership and innovation in engaging their workplaces.
TCS received the award in North America for building an energized and dynamic workplace, guided by leadership that sets the tone for the entire company. In the US, TCS was lauded for its employee-centric approach to talent development and agile processes, powered by trust and performance. Using TCS’s own app and digital learning platform, employees across levels have been empowered to seamlessly switch between training modules on their phone and web, where and when it’s most convenient for them. Moreover, a range of employee leadership engagement programs, such as TCS INSPIRE, have identified high-performing and potential leaders to help them further learn and grow.
In Canada, TCS was recognized for the same employee training platforms, but also for its internal communications focus, transparency and access to senior leadership, thereby enabling employees to understand their key role towards achieving TCS’s vision and organizational goals. TCS Canada was praised for its programs designed to recognize employees’ contributions to the company through customized training and mentorship opportunities, in addition to how the company gives back to local communities through programs like goIT, TCS’s flagship student technology awareness program designed to address the growing skills gap in STEM fields for students.
“We take great pride in successfully delivering innovative employee engagement strategies that lead to accelerated career development,” said Surya Kant, president of North America, UK and Europe, TCS. “TCS developed its Fresco Play and digital learning platforms, and in a very short period, 260,000 of our global employees have been trained in the latest digital technologies and acquired more than 800,000 competencies. This is certainly the case in North America, our largest global market, where such expertise is being applied to many of our customers in their ongoing Business 4.0 growth and digital transformation journeys.”
“The companies we honor as the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ have made employee experience, engagement and recognition the highest priority. They understand how critical employee engagement is to company performance, and what a competitive advantage it provides,” said Aris Zakinthinos, Achievers general manager. “The companies on this list serve as role models for other businesses by creating an engagement strategy that cultivates a high-performing workplace.”
The Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplace winners were selected by a panel of esteemed judges comprising employee engagement academics, industry analysts, thought leaders, journalists and influencers. Applicants were evaluated based on the Eight Elements of Employee Engagement™: communication, leadership, culture, rewards and recognition, professional and personal growth, accountability and performance, vision and values, and corporate social responsibility. TCS will be honored alongside other recipients of the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ Award at the awards gala on October 22, 2018, at the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto, Canada, before the opening of this year’s Achievers Customer Experience Conference.
