Tech Mahindra has facilitated return of over 210 employees and their dependents who were stranded in the United States due to COVID-19 induced lockdown. A special chartered flight from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport took off on 13th July to bring Tech Mahindra employees back to their homes, and will land in Hyderabad, India on 14th July.
CP Gurnani, MD & CEO, Tech Mahindra, said, “Ensuring the well-being and safety of our entire employee, customer and partner ecosystem is critical in the collective fight against this global pandemic. Bringing our US-based associates and their dependents back home conveys our commitment towards our core values of ensuring employees’ safety first, and reiterates Tech Mahindra’s ability to be adaptable and agile in keeping mission-critical systems on for global clients from anywhere in the world, even during times of crisis.”
With the recent COVID-19 outbreak, Tech Mahindra has taken all the necessary preventive measures to ensure the wellness and well-being of its associates. Tech Mahindra’s investments over the years in digital collaboration tools combined with a culture of working remotely, has enabled the organization to prepare for a world where people are physically separated from their workplaces at a large scale.
Harshvendra Soin, Global Chief People Officer and Head of Marketing, Tech Mahindra, said, “At Tech Mahindra, health, safety and well-being of our associates is core to our business and HR policies and decisions. Helping our people in the US, and bringing them back home reiterates our allegiance towards our core-values and RISETM tenets – Accepting no limits, Alternative thinking, and Driving positive change – instilled in every member of the Mahindra family, and visible in all our decisions and organizational practices.”
Tech Mahindra recently also conveyed solidarity in the global fight against COVID-19 through announcement of a temporary tweak in its brand logo. The tweak reflects Tech Mahindra’s agility in adjusting to a global crisis situation. The “e” in the familiar Tech Mahindra logo is now boxed inside the home for the next few weeks, and showcases how Tech Mahindra’s 125,200+ associates have adjusted to the crisis and are meeting the organization’s commitments to keep critical systems running for global clients, including governments, public-sector institutions, healthcare institutions and leading service companies. This is being achieved without compromising on the safety of the employees.
