“Our recently launched global helpline for Covid-19 provides 24X7 support to our employees,” the company said.

Asserting that staff and customer health is of utmost priority for the company, HCL Tech said as the virus is spreading rapidly globally, it is continuously monitoring the situation and taking all possible precautionary measures for the well-being and safety of employees and their families.
