Delhi: As COVID-19 outbreak has disrupted businesses across the world, large IT companies like Infosys, Capgemini, TCS and Mindtree are not honouring the job offers they have already made but some companies like Wipro, Accenture and Tech Mahindra have decided to honour offers made to new hires, the Economic Times mentioned in a report.
According to the report, Wipro, Accenture and Tech Mahindra have already started onboarding of recruits virtually. These recruits include both experienced as well as fresh graduates.
Worth mentioning here is that IT sector is one of the largest employers in India with 45 lakh people employed in different IT companies across the country. This sector hires nearly 20,000 people every month. According to Nasscom, the industry hired 205,000 new employees in FY20.
“Accenture in India is honouring all offers made so far, and associated benefits are effective from the date of joining,” the publication quoted Lakshmi C, managing director and lead, human resources, Accenture India as saying.
Accenture is one of the largest employers in the IT sector, hiring an average about 2,500 people every month in India in the last one year. The company has currently about 200,000 people in India.
“Covid-19 outbreak continues to be a critical concern for businesses globally. In terms of hiring of lateral recruits and management trainees, all the offer letters issued will be respected,” Tech Mahindra chief people officer Harshvendra Soin told the business daily.
Similatly, Wipro has confirmed that it will honour all offer letters made to candidates.
However, IT behemoths such as Infosys, Capgemini, TCS and Mindtree are non-committal about the offers they have already made, the publication mentioned.
“Some companies are honouring the offer commitments, while there are others who are either deferring the joining date or requesting the person to stay put in the current jobs for the time being; in some cases even compensating them with a month’s salary,” Kamal Karanth, co-founder, Xpheno told the publication.
“One of the challenges that they might face is solving the logistics and the security issues for e-onboarding…Allowing new hires BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) will be a challenge,” he said.
