Wipro Chairman Rishad Premji said the IT service provider’s leaders will start returning to office from Monday after 18 months of work from home amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“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,” Rishad Premji said in a tweet. He 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 Wipro office.
Rishad Premji, during Wipro’s 75th annual general meeting on July 14, said about 55 percent of its employees in India have been vaccinated. Wipro has about two lakh employees currently, PTI reported.
Wipro in the latest annual report stated that the company had triggered 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.
“We have settled well into this new way of working and continued to make our customers successful. We enjoy their confidence, and I have no doubt that a hybrid model may well be how we work in the future,” he said.
