WIPRO EMPLOYS FRESHERS- A RECORD!!!

Last year, Wipro’s headcount stood at 67,818 employees including 50,354 people in IT services business and 17,464 people in BPO. It had employed more than 7,100 people (freshers) last fiscal. This year it is definitely going to increase since WIPRO has given job offer letters to 14,000 freshers for FY08. This itself is a record in Company’s history.

Wipro HR executive vice-president Pratik Kumar told Economic Times, “This is to meet the growth needs, and secondly, we have decided that the proportion of rookies versus laterals should be more towards the former. This gives us a lot of operational advantages as people who go through training after college are more productive’’.

In the last fiscal, about 64% of the gross hires were laterals while the rest were freshers. However, 52% of the net hires were freshers. “There is headspace for this to go up,’’ said Mr Kumar. He, however, declined to give guidance on the overall hiring, stating it could be on similar lines as last fiscal. Wipro is emerging a great leader in its sector and the big players are facing a hard time in competing with Wipro. Good Luck Wipro! Just keep on breaking records.
