Syntel Dress Code?
Regular readers of Techgoss are well aware that a large number of our articles are crowd sourced. People send in tips, photos, story ideas and even articles. Many of our contributors have full times jobs in IT - ITES, and so prefer using a pseudonym.
Today, while I was researching an article (in reality twiddling my thumbs waiting for someone to send me a News Tip), I got lucky. A Tipster (who has asked TG not to publish his name), tormented by the lack of dress code at Syntel, send me an anonymous Tip.
Like every other successful IT, KPO and BPO company, Syntel too has a Dress Code. And we get periodic reminders about what is acceptable attire and what is not.
One of my colleagues at Syntel, who is prone to never exaggerate things, says he was shocked at the lack of dress code at Syntel Offices in Mumbai. Employees swagger around with round neck T shirts, Floaters and T shirts with stupid signs. And can be seen even walking around Mr. Ranade, Mr. Desai and Mr. Raj's cabin without a care in the world (about the Syntel dress code).
While most of the employees at the Syntel Offices in Pune follow a proper dress code, some in the HR department at Pune are so informally dressed that they can leave work and go straight for an informal party.
The Tipster ended the Tip with ‘Techgoss, can you please highlight this? We need to adhere to our Syntel dress code”.
Normally, Techgoss only publishes Tips with proof (like a photo of the casually dressed employees taken with a mobile phone), but today is a slow news day and so I will publish this. Also, the Dufus Techgoss Editor has gone for a ‘work’ meeting. (In reality a long lunch to catch up with friends from Sydney) and so I have a free hand to upload anything to Techgoss.
Techgoss note - Tipster, you should not be surprised at this informal attire at some of the Syntel Offices. After all, your owner accepts awards like Light of India where the guests like Nina Manuel come dressed as in the image above.
More images of the Light of India awards can be accessed at this link.
