The renowned Indian Multi National Company Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is planning to smooth down review bell curve with new review system. After it moved away from the Bell Curve model, now the company is mulling over the new platform.
Tata Consultancy Services is rethinking how it evaluates its 3, 70, 000 employees after scuffling the bell curve model. Now TCS is planning to bring in altered models of assessments for its IT and BPO employees and revise its increment system from scratch.
As the Indian IT sector moves way from the relative ranking of its 3-million employees, most companies are bringing in new models. TCS executive said, “There will be separate consideration systems for IT and BPO employees and we are looking at how senior executives should weigh up.”
“Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) is also planning to build a new platform. The system for BPO employees would be more based on social media like the internal knome platform we currently use,” the executive said.
TCS will do assessment once in a year, instead of half-yearly reviews, targeted workers would move to a project-end appraisal cycle and that the projects could last anywhere from two months to a year. Not only TCS, but HCL Technologies is also building new platforms for reviews.
Recently Infosys has launched new tech iCount platform this year. IT firms in India and big business across the world will keenly watch how TCS manages its evaluations. Microsoft, KPMG, Accenture, and Deloitte have already unrestricted the Bell Curve, a performance rating system that requires managers to rank employees against each other.
