Infosys announces 'In-Person Collab' weeks

Sounds so much cooler than 'come back to the office or else'

In an effort to get its employees back into the office, Infosys has reportedly instituted mandatory in-person attendance for select roles – but dubbed the program "In-Person Collab" weeks. Because that's how the young people talk, right?

News of the requirement reportedly reached employees in the form of an internal email from global delivery head for IoT Vikas Gupta. That message declared some employees would (presumably) need to change out of their pajamas and head into the office for a few weeks every quarter.

One report explained that Infosys would designate six weeks in each quarter as In-Person Collab time, starting this quarter. The services behemoth hopes to drive business growth by encouraging face to face interaction among employees.

The required collab weeks complement a wider hybrid working arrangement rolled out last November, mandating employees work a minimum of ten days in a month – or 30 days a quarter – on site.

"I urge you all to start working from our office campuses for a minimum of ten days in a month if not started already," the email from Gupta reportedly read.

"You can either plan to work for a couple of days from the office during these Collab Weeks or can choose to work for all the days," he wrote, before encouraging email recipients to consult with their managers on selecting their in-office days.

The Reg has asked Infosys to detail its return-to-office policy and will report back if a substantial reply materializes.

In other Infosys news, the biz revealed in a stock exchange filing that it has been notified it will receive a ₹6,329 crore ($758 million) tax refund.

The outsourcing giant had received assessment orders form India's income tax department for the years 07/08 to 15/16, 17/18 & 18/19 during the quarter.

"The Company is in the process of evaluating the implications of these orders on the financial statements for the quarter and year ending March 31, 2024," explained Infosys. ®
