The company should effectively harness its human capital by making the necessary modifications in its HR practices from time to time. The HR practices should be in alignment with the overall strategy and processes for the company to keep going in the rat and mouse game.
TCS has been thriving for this many years in a big way, and it becomes evident that HRM is in line with the strategy. In fact, TCS was the 'live case study' that capped off a six-day 'strategic leadership-training program' organized by the All-India Management Association and conducted by faculty from the Harvard Business School at the Tata Management Training Centre, Pune.

The strategists speak volumes about the company. Appreciating the fact that, TCS was a role model, how about the torrential times ahead? The company is getting bigger and the competition more heated up. Hats off to TCS HR strategies till date. It is not the past but the future that counts. The company is assured of a bright future if it frames the HR strategies that is really becoming, as it has done in the past. Keeping the tempo going, but modifications and interventions at the right time in the proper way will keep its position intact. Easier said than done. The big H - HOW? Thus strategic HRM comes to the forefront submerging HRM. The following discussion sheds light into the techniques of HRM adopted by TCS that enabled smooth functioning and growth in the global scenario.

Diversity in Workplace

According to Anjali Prayag, "For Indian companies, managing a diverse workforce is no longer a choice but an imperative." TCS is an equal-opportunity employer and TCSers come from many nationalities and speak many languages. TCS has the culture of celebrating everything under the sun, singing carols at Christmas and doing the dandiya dance at Navrathri with equal enthusiasm.

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) will recruit 4,000 foreign nationals in the forthcoming fiscal, including 800 people in the US and 1,000 in Latin America and the rest in China and Eastern Europe, according to Mr. S. Padmanabhan, Executive Vice-President of Global HR. The company intends to build a workforce with over 7.5% representation of foreign nationals. It is noteworthy that more than 25% of the employees are females.
