Jobs at bottom of the pyramid will get automated: Wipro

Monday, April 28, 2014

What will be the hiring pattern at Wipro this year?

Most of the players have said FY15 will be better than FY14. If demand goes up, hiring will also go up, which means attrition will also increase. I feel the activity level will be higher.

There is no change in our hiring plan from last year. We will go to campuses and hire in India and onsite. We will hire experienced people based on business requirements. Our focus is on hiring people with domain knowledge, those from consulting and sales. We were never big on campuses.

The industry is maturing and as you do more transformational work for your customers and go up the value chain, the requirements become different. As we are driving a lot of automation and productivity, jobs at the bottom of the pyramid will get automated. There will be a lot of focus on re-skilling people. It’s good for the employees to do higher-end jobs instead of the mundane ones. In terms of hiring, there will be a lot of focus on re-skilling and retraining people as we move forward.
