Tata Consultancy Services Ltd (TCS) has asked about 500 of its employees to look for another job (i.e. resign voluntarily) as they did not meet the performance requirements of the company. In last quarter, TCS appointed 4,037 employees, taking its total headcount to 108,229.[via reuters]
Companies like Infosys also has a similar policy, but employees are asked to leave only after giving them more time to improve and evaluating them with various criteria on a regular basis using Personal Improvement Programmes.
Does this imply that the recruitment process of TCS is not up to the mark? Due to the shortage of human resources, are they just recruiting freshers from college without conducting good tests and interviews? This issue could either be classified as low quality of the new generation engineers or low quality of the TCS recruitment process? Either way, this could affect the career of those employees.
