Re Hire

All those employees sacked by Wipro have some news to cheer, as the company plans to rehire some of the employees it laid off last year. The tech major`s involuntary attrition rate has gone up by two percentage points in the last 16 months.

"Non-performance was the reason for these separations. However, we are open to rehire some of these people who were fired by us a year ago, if they come back to us with additional skill sets. A one-year window would have been enough for them to acquire some additional skills," said Joseph John, Vice-President (Human Resource) at Wipro Infotech.

Wipro Infotech said it would also resume campus hiring from January next year, reports The Economic Times. "We are looking at hiring over 1,000 laterals during the fiscal and 1,000 freshers from campuses in January," said John. The division, which recruited 1,000 people in the first six months of the fiscal, expects hiring numbers in the second half of the year to be more than double of that.

The additional people requirement comes with Wipro winning a slew of large projects in India and the Middle-East, and also to cater to the growing requirements of existing accounts. The company hired 200 people in Saudi Arabia and Egypt recently. Wipro is also hiring for its Global Service Management Centre in Mysore with almost five percent jobs earmarked for differently-abled people.

Wipro Infotech is planning to raise the ratio of its women employees from 13 percent now to 20 percent in the next two years. On salary hikes, John said the company had not budgeted a hike at the start of the fiscal. "But we have decided to raise salaries in the fourth quarter across the board," he added.
