Infosys was in the news last week to become the first Indian IT company to arrange a charter flight to bring back ~200 employees and dependents from the USA.
According to CP Gurnanani, MD and CEO, Tech Mahindra– “Safety and well-being of our employees, customers, and partners are the priority during this pandemic.”
According to Harshvendra Soin, Global Chief People Officer and Head of Marketing TechMahindra, “Helping our people in the US, and bringing them back home reiterates our allegiance towards our core values.”
While many applaud this move from Tech Mahindra, there are many criticized referencing the recent incidents where few Tech Mahindra employees got COVID-19 positive cases.
After recent positive Covid-19 cases, Tech Mahindra had announced the testing of 20000 employees and vendors.
It is good to see that Tech Mahindra is taking a strong stand against COVID-19.
