Wipro Requests Employees to Be Present in Office Three Days a Week: Report

New Delhi: Wipro, one of India’s top IT services providers, has introduced a company-wide policy mandating that all its employees across the globe must work from the office at least three days a week starting from this month, as per a company-wide email issued on Tuesday. This move aligns with the trend of companies revising or adjusting their remote work policies as pandemic-related restrictions due to COVID-19 are gradually being lifted. These policy shifts are often motivated by a desire to enhance communication and collaboration among employees.

Last week, Infosys, India’s second-largest software services exporter, announced that certain employees would be required to return to the office for at least 10 days each month. Meanwhile, industry leader TCS has directed its employees to resume in-office work for five days a week.

Wipro had already been encouraging employees to work from the office three days a week since May, and currently, approximately 55% of the workforce adhere to this frequency, according to a company spokesperson. As of September 30, Wipro had a total of 244,707 employees.

The Bengaluru-based company has officially enforced this mandate, which will take effect on November 15. The email, dated November 6, stated that persistent violators may face consequences starting from January 7 next year. However, the email did not provide specific details regarding the punitive actions, and when questioned, the Wipro spokesperson declined to comment.

The email indicated that the company would continue to tailor its approach in various countries based on local regulations and agreements, acknowledging that consultations with employee representation groups might be necessary in certain European countries.
