Software services firm Tech Mahindra Ltd. has facilitated return of more than 210 of its employees and their dependents stranded in the U.S. due to the pandemic-induced lockdowns, the Pune, Maharashtra-based company said on Monday.
A special chartered flight carrying them took off on Monday from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and will land in India on Tuesday, the IT firm said in a statement.
"Bringing our U.S.-based associates and dependents back home (to India) conveys our commitment towards our core values of ensuring employees safety first & reiterates Tech Mahindra’s ability to be adaptable and agile in keeping mission-critical systems on for global clients from anywhere in the world, even during the times of crisis," CP Gurnani, managing director and chief executive officer at Tech Mahindra, said.
Tech Mahindra has taken all the necessary preventive measures to ensure the wellness and well-being of its associates, the statement read.
The firm’s investments over the years in digital collaboration tools, combined with a culture of working remotely, has enabled it to prepare for a world where people are physically separated from their workplaces at a large scale, the release stated.
