Over the years, TCS has excelled in areas including hiring, retaining, and promoting women, minorities, and people with disabilities. The company was selected out of 1,800 global organisations that were assessed on different parameters.
TCS got this mention in DiversityInc’s Top 50 Companies for diversity and was selected for its sustained investments and efforts in promoting diversity and inclusion.
