Tech companies doing their duties – HCL’s critical staff present in the office

IT services major HCL Technologies on April 21 announced that the company will be continuing to work with only critical staff attending the office to ensure the safety of employees amid the corona crisis.

While home ministry guidelines had permitted IT-ITeS organizations to allow up to 50 percent strength from April 20, many states including Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh have not lifted the lockdown.

“HCL will continue its critical operations with a much lesser percentage of the workforce to aid social distancing and ensuring a safe working environment for business-critical employees who need to be onsite,” an HCL Technologies spokesperson told PTI.

The spokesperson added that currently, the company continues to work with only critical resources required to be in the office to ensure employee safety.

IT companies like Infosys, Tech Mahindra, and others are also continuing to allow staff to work from home (WFH).

“Employee health and safety is of paramount importance and utmost priority at HCL…HCL is complying with all government and health advisories, and taking all necessary precautions for the health and safety of its employees and their families,” HCL spokesperson said adding that there is increased cleaning and sterilization processes being maintained at all the facilities and all social distancing protocols are being duly followed with the employees on-premises.

HCL is encouraging virtual meetings and a dedicated global helpline in association with HCL Healthcare has also been set up, the spokesperson said.
