Case study: Tata has global perspective

With 202,000 employees based in 42 countries, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has to ensure that its employee value proposition (EVP) is attractive to its global workforce.

The company, which provides IT solutions, employs 5,000 staff in the UK and Ireland. Nupur Singh, head of human resources for the UK and Ireland, says: “We believe our EVP helps us attract the best talent from the global labour market. It has global relevance, enabling TCS to access a talent pool across multiple countries.”

TCS’s EVP focuses on three concepts: global exposure, work-life balance and giving workers experience across different business functions. “The EVP is seen by employees to add significant value to our total rewards,” says Singh.

The company prizes work-life balance. “Finding a perfect balance between career demands and personal life is not easy,” says Singh. “Our work-life balance programmes, under our Maitree umbrella, which means camaraderie in Hindi, promote cultural events, fun activities and community development projects.”

TCS’s corporate social responsibility campaigns tap into issues relevant to local offices. For example, 100 London staff have volunteered to mentor and teach business skills to students at Stepney Green School in east London.
