Tata Steel Rolls Out 'Agile Working Models'

In the wake of the ongoing COVD-19 pandemic, Tata Steel has launched the ‘Agile Working Models’ Policy with effect from November 1, 2020. Under the new working models, even the officers who are required to be based out of a particular location can now work from home for unlimited days in a year.


Once the pandemic situation normalises, the Agile Working Models policy will enable officers to move to a location of choice, giving the employee the flexibility to operate out of any location in the country. The policy will be piloted for a year and based on adaptability and feedback, the policy will be reviewed after one year.


Suresh Dutt Tripathi, Vice President, Human Resource Management, Tata Steel said, “This policy is a shift in mindset from monitoring to creating a trust-and-outcome-based work culture. Flexible working not only portrays an organisation’s intent to create a workplace for the upcoming generations but also solidifies its intent to cater to the needs of its diversified workforce across geographies. This pandemic has helped us move away from the traditional thinking of productivity being contingent upon fixed hours of work within an office environment and bust many of the myths around remote working.”


The policy will ensure better work-life balance, will give more flexibility to choose where one lives as the daily work commute shifts out of consideration, provides working opportunities to new parents at their convenience, and ensures continuity of work for Persons with Disabilities in their respective work enabled environment.
