Ever since the pandemic started, HCL has been doing whatever it can to help its employees and ensure their safety and well-being under all circumstances. As early as January 2020, HCL had formed a special global pandemic task force with all key business leaders to monitor, assess and act to protect all employees, customers, and members of the HCL ecosystem and launched a full-blown executive crisis management function that gathered frequently to proactively manage the situation. As early as Mar 4, 2020, in India, we had 98% of its workforce working from home. HCL Technologies takes pride in announcing that it has become the first IT company in India to achieve the ‘PROTEK’ certification for ‘Prevention of Spread of Infection’ from Intertek.
