The heat was bound to reach the top brass of Tech Mahindra and the Chairman of Mahindra Group, Anand Mahindra didn’t delay to address it. Earlier today we reported how an HR representative of Tech Mahindra unethically and unprofessionally fired an employee. Taking the cognizance of the matter, Anand Mahindra took to Twitter to apologise over the incident.

After the telephonic conversation between the sacked employee and HR representative was out in the public domain, our readers, who also happen to be the mover & shaker of the industry, started criticising the process followed by the HR representative of Tech Mahindra.

To put and end to the matter first it was CP Gurnani, MD & CEO – Tech Mahindra, who regretted on the way employee exit was handled.


Unfortunately, by then the damages were already done, and it was getting worse as more and more people on social media started involving in the discussion.

Later on the same day, the chief of Mahindra Grop also tweeted his apology.

While it’s not the first time any IT company is found employing such practice, and for sire, Tech Mahindra, is not the sole culprit in such type of matters. But it is a commendable move by the top brass of a company to come out in public to accept their fault and ensure that such incidents won’t be repeated.

On June 15, an employee of Tech Mahindra was called by the company’s HR representative only to ask him to tender his resignation within the next few hours. Despite the repeated request she paid no heed and informed him that company would terminate him by the next morning if his resignation is not found in the tool by then.

The employee, shocked and stunned, urged her multiple times to give him some time to look out for other opportunity or allow him to speak with someone to understand what went wrong from his side. However, the HR representative went on telling him that decision is taken by the top management by the company and he is racing against the time. The whole conversation was recorded and is now out in public domain.
