Indian outsourcing giant Infosys Ltd told employees that they might resume their work from offices. As per a memo by Reuters offers an initial sign of the country’s $190 billion technology services sector which is getting back on track.
Earlier, the giant IT service company stopped calling all employees back to work, keeping in mind the caution across the sector as Indian officials warn about the third wave of COVID-19 infections.
Still, after the second wave of Covid-19, the country’s daily counts are generally a tenth of the peak as the Covid-19 infections dip to the lowest in four months. However, Health experts have appealed to citizens and state governments not to lower their guard against COVID-19 as third wave on its way.
Other industries like manufacturing and aviation called some employees back to work, or they are staying closed entirely as the Covid disrupted travel.
Infosys said that the country’s safety situation seems to be improving in its memo. However, Infosys did not respond to Reuters’ request to comment on the memo. The company said that the company has been operating in emergency mode for months but now the situation in the country is enhancing rapidly.
Moreover, the company added that “We have been getting requests from certain accounts to allow their team members to work from Infosys campuses. In addition, some of our employees have also been asking to come back and start working from office, as a personal preference.”
