TCS to introduce new appraisal system for employees

From the relative ranking of its employees, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has announced plans to introduce a new system to appraise its more than 370,000 employees. Some employees will be assessed after a project is completed instead of every half year. TCS also said that IT and BPO employees will be appraised separately. A TCS executive, however, said nothing firm has been decided. The executive said the system for BPO employees would be more based on social media, like the internal Knome platform that the company currently uses. TCS’s new appraisal model is expected to be keenly watched by other IT services companies and large firms across the world.
