Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), India's largest IT services company, is recognised as one of world's best employers by the Top Employer Institute for the third year running.

The Top Employer Institute, Amsterdam-based global certification company in employee conditions, selected TCS for its exceptional employee offerings from a pool of more than 1,300 companies in 113 countries.

In a release issued on Friday, TCS stated that the company is awarded the Top Employers Global certification, making it one of only a handful of organizations to achieve this accreditation on a worldwide level.

TCS picked up the latest Top Employer endorsement for 27 of its individual country teams across Europe, Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America and the Middle East.

Commenting on the development, TCS Human Resources Executive Vice President and Global Head Ajoy Mukherjee said as global business evolves into the 'post-digital' era - with the likes of AI, cloud and robotics changing the way companies operate and are structured the nature of work is also changing.

"With this shift well underway, it's vital that we prepare our employees for life in the next generation workplace and equip them with new, state-of-the-art skills they can use for years to come," he said.

Mukherjee also said through TCS digital technology and business agility programmes, teams develop exciting and innovative experience that they can combine with their contextual knowledge of our customers to deliver better value and ultimately help solve their business challenges.

"This global recognition from the Top Employer Institute for a third year running is a testament to the significant investments we're making in our people to prepare them for the Business 4.0 era, and highlights the exciting opportunities we're providing for development and growth within the company," he said.

The Top Employer rankings are finalized following in-depth research into 600 HR practices across nine key criteria like talent strategy, workforce planning, on-boarding, learning & development, performance management, leadership development, career & succession management, compensation & benefits and company culture.

Top Employers Institute Chief Executive Officer David Plink said from their research they have seen first-hand how successful companies around the world are putting the development and re-skilling of their people first at the forefront of their agenda.

"TCS forms a crucial part of this select group of employers, and is rightfully receiving the global Top Employers certification for yet another year as a result of this consistent dedication to remain one of the world's best employers an achievement they can truly be proud of," said Plink.
