Promotions at TCS Linked to Return to Office - Justified?

By - Rohit Joshi • 3 months ago • 11.3k views

A friend working at TCS informed that their company has now set several conditions for salary hike and promotions. One of the key requirements being compliance with the RTO (Return to Office) policy. It's also known as BTO (aka Back to Office).

I wish to know from my fellow CEans whether TCS is justified in linking employee performance to the place they work from?

During the COVID times, several teams got split up. Teams worked from different cities. I wish to know how is this relevant to the output employee is offering?

Judge the employees based on their output, not the place of operation. What do you say?

Can an engineer become a doctor? If you got forced into studying engineering and want to go back to your first love - medicine (MBBS), what are your options? Let's discuss.

Yes, an engineer can become a doctor. But it won't be easy. Engineering degrees worldwide are mostly 4-year degree courses and medicine too requires an average of 4-5 years followed by mandatory internship. Not everyone has the patience, money and time to dedicate a decade only to learning.
