This annual award recognizes top employers that display leadership and innovation in engaging their workplaces.
TCS received the award in North America for building an energized and dynamic workplace, guided by leadership that sets the tone for the entire company. In the U.S., TCS was lauded for its employee-centric approach to talent development and agile processes, powered by trust and performance. Using TCS' own app and digital learning platform, employees across levels have been empowered to seamlessly switch between training modules on their phone and web, where and when it's most convenient to them. Moreover, a range of employee leadership engagement programs, such as TCS INSPIRE, have identified high performing and potential leaders to further learn and grow.
In Canada, TCS was recognized for the same employee training platforms, but also for its internal communications focus, transparency and access to senior leadership, thereby enabling employees to understand their key role towards achieving TCS' vision and organizational goals. TCS Canada was praised for its programs designed to recognize employees' contributions to the company through customized training and mentorship opportunities, in addition to how the company gives back to local communities through programs like goIT, TCS' flagship student technology awareness program designed to address the growing skills gap in STEM fields for students.

"TCS developed its Fresco Play and digital learning platforms, and in a very short period, 260,000 of our global employees have been trained in the latest digital technologies and acquired more than 800,000 competencies.
