Wipro Has No Plans to Lay Off Staff Due to COVID-19: Rishad Premji

Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2020-07-13

Wipro chairman Rishad Premji said the IT services company has not laid off any employee and has no plans to retrench employees due to the Covid-19 pandemic impact on business.

 

Premji, who took charge in July last year, was addressing his first annual general meeting (AGM) as the Chairman of Wipro.

 

Wipro, like other Indian IT services companies, has reduced new hiring in the wake of the pandemic induced slowdown across geographies.

 

“Safety and well-being of our employees are of paramount importance,” Premji told shareholders at the AGM this morning.

 

Thierry Delaporte, chief executive officer and managing director, Wipro, said he is “hoping to finalise the plan to drive improvements across all spheres” to achieve industry-leading growth.

 

“Profitable growth will be the most important priority on my agenda. We will do everything to regain momentum in the marketplace,” Delaporte told shareholders.
