Kolkata, Jan 30 : Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a leading IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, on Thursday announced that, for the second year in a row, it has been recognized as one of the 'Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces', in the United States, and also was honored as one of the top companies in Canada.
The annual award celebrates employers that demonstrate a strong, consistent commitment to their employees and a high level of innovation in regularly engaging them.
The 'Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces' award is given each year to the companies and organizations that display the best leadership and innovation in engaging their workplaces.
Judges evaluate each applicant based on the eight elements of employee engagement: Communication, Leadership, Culture, Rewards and Recognition, Professional and Personal Growth, Accountability and Performance, Vision and Values and Corporate Social Responsibility.
"The companies we honor as the Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces have made employee engagement, alignment and recognition a very high priority because they understand how critical it is and what a competitive advantage it provides," said Achievers CEO, Patrick D. Quirk.
"These companies serve as role models for other businesses by creating an engagement strategy that cultivates a high-performing workplace."
This year, the panel of 14 judges included various academics and thought leaders on employee engagement, and representation from organizations such as the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA), and Human Capital Institute (HCI) and Northern California HR Association.
"TCS is honored to again be recognized as one of Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces, this time across North America," said Surya Kant, President, TCS North America, UK and Europe.
Kant added, "We believe that our workforce is the most important component in delivering innovative services and solutions to our clients around the world. As we begin a new year, we look forward to maintaining and further developing our steadfast commitment to recruiting and retaining the best talent, instilling a dedicated work ethic, camaraderie amongst fellow employees, and giving back to the local communities we serve."
Recipients of the 'Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces' awards will be honored at award galas on Mar 6, 2014 in Toronto and on Apr 2, 2014 in San Francisco.
