The article talks about how It seems that Indian IT services firms are readying to bring back their employees to offices after over one and a half years of Work From Home (WFH). The vice-president at Experis of Manpower Group, Supaul Chanda said, “ODC (Offshore Development Centre) is a paid business, and IT firms charge the client for ODC. When the pandemic started and employees started working from home, clients said we wouldn’t pay for ODC. It was the first charge which got slashed. So, ODC as a business line (for IT firms) will take a huge hit if work from home continues,”. So far, there is no finality as to which model will be followed by technology firms going ahead.
