Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has been named among the top employers in the United States for 2016 by the Top Employers Institute, an employer certification agency. Headquartered in the Netherlands, the institute has recognised top employers around the world since 1991.
The company gets the recognition as exceptional performer across nine categories, namely, talent strategy, workforce planning, on-boarding, learning and development, performance management, leadership development, career and succession management, compensation and benefits, and culture. TCS has earned this certification in 24 countries across Europe, North America, South America, Africa, Asia, Australia and the Middle East in 2016.
The Top Employers certification is awarded to a select group of employers who demonstrate forward-thinking HR practices, exceptional employee offerings and an employee environment that promotes personal and professional development. The award of the certification is based on an industry-leading research methodology, conducted by the institute and audited by Grant Thornton.
The institute claims that they have assessed and certified companies the world over using their proprietary methodology. As they strongly value objectivity, independence and selectivity, the current and prospective employees can trust upon the certified organisations to have excellent conditions in place for their people to develop.
TCS employs over 344,000 professionals from 125 nationalities. Ajoy Mukherjee, Executive Vice President and Global Head, Human Resources, TCS, said, “We are delighted to have been certified as a Global Top Employer. In today’s digital economy, having a fully committed, engaged and culturally diverse workforce is more critical to business success than ever before.
