Wipro leaders to return to office today

Wipro Chairman Rishad Premji stated yesterday that the leadership will start returning to office from today after 18 months of work from home amid the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Premji said in a tweet, “After 18 long months, our leaders @Wipro are coming back to the office starting tomorrow (twice a week). All fully vaccinated, all ready to go - safely and socially distanced.”

Premji also shared a video about the COVID-19-related safety protocols, including temperature checks and QR code scans that have been put in place at the firm’s office.

In the company's annual report, Premji had stated that the company had put in place its business continuity plans to quickly enable remote working as the pandemic broke out, and less than three per cent of its global workforce was working from office. He added that the firm has settled well into this new way of working and has continued to make its customers successful. And he has no doubt that a hybrid model may well be how we work in the future.

Premji's comments come as the tech industry, which had shifted to remote working in a matter of weeks after the Covid-induced lockdown in March 2020, is preparing to return to office, adopting a hybrid model where employees will partly work from home as well as office in future. Last week, TCS CEO Rajesh Gopinathan had also stated that the IT services major will ask its over 500,000 strong workforce to return to office by the end of this year, as the majority of them will be completely vaccinated.
