According to the report, Infosys vertical heads have emailed employees, asking them to start coming to office at least three days a week. “It will become mandatory very shortly,” as per the email quoted in the report. Infosys has not yet issued a formal response to the reported development.

Expressing dissatisfaction with the limited return-to-office compliance, the email from the vertical heads highlighted that the three-year work-from-home arrangement following the Covid-19 pandemic had been sufficient. It further clarified that except for medical reasons, employees are expected to resume regular office attendance.

A source told the paper that the management has voiced discontent with the company’s delivery units (DUs) going underutilised, prompting a call for immediate attendance at campuses housing offshore development centres (ODCs) for clients.

However, the ET report said Infosys is open to considering health-related exceptions on a case-by-case basis.Not only Infosys, but many other IT companies have also asked employees to start coming to office.Recently, Wipro warned its employees of consequences for repeatedly flouting its hybrid work policy – reporting to office three days a week – effective from January 7.

Tata Consultancy Services, India’s largest software services firm, is also making a shift toward more traditional office routines.Before the pandemic-induced lockdown in early 2020, eligible Infosys employees had the option to work from home for nine days a month. The ET report said that if the new rule is implemented, it will bring back the pre-pandemic attendance system.

Infosys’ move reflects a broader trend in the IT sector, where companies are emphasizing the importance of personal presence in the office to increase efficiency amid slow growth and reduction in headcount. Concerns about data security and employee moonlighting have increased since the widespread adoption of work-from-home norms during the pandemic.
