QBiz: Layoffs in Wipro; IMF Director Bats for GST, Remonetisation

Amid intense competition in the market and tighter business environment, Wipro which is India's third largest IT services exporter has shown doors to almost 600 employees. Wipro serves clients in almost 175 cities across 6 continents.

As of December 2016, the southern Indian city of Bengaluru-based company had almost 180,000 employees, including in non-software branches.

Wipro is the third largest firm in terms of Information Technology.

In a massive layoff exercise of its employees, Softbank-backed e-commerce marketplace Snapdeal showed the door to over 600 people in February. The numbers are not clearly stated of how many are getting fired but it may also raise up to 2000.

The company, which confirmed some employees may be asked to leave as part of an "appraisal process", did not, however, give any specific number.

The evaluation process also includes a series of actions with mentoring, retraining and upskilling. And the numbers will vary from year to year. Further, it cut its hiring to just 5,700 people in the first nine months of 2016, compared to the 17,000 employees it hired in the previous year. The move comes on the heels of larger rival Cognizant, which has about 75% of its employees in India, initiating a process of eliminating 6,000 jobs, which represents over 2% of its total workforce.

Tech experts have been cited expressing concerns that proposed hyper-automation and Artificial Intelligence may paint an even bleaker future for the sector, as when implemented these would drastically reduce the need for human resources. Though the exact number is not known, between 350 to 600 employees are reported to have been sacked.
