Why did Wipro fire 452 freshers?
Wipro, an IT major, has confirmed that it has let go of 452 freshers it had made offers to but had not onboarded to any project yet. The freshers were let go because they “performed poorly in assessment repeatedly even after training,” the company said in a statement.
“At Wipro, we take pride in holding ourselves to the highest standards. In line with the standards, we aim to set for ourselves, we expect every entry-level employee to have a certain level of proficiency in their designated area of work,” the company said in a statement.
As part of the evaluation process, Wipro includes assessments as well to “align employees with business objects of the organization and requirements of clients,” according to its statement. “This systematic and comprehensive performance evaluation process triggers a series of actions such as mentoring and retraining and in some cases separation of certain employees from the company.”
The company also stated that in the termination letter sent to the affected employees, the company said the freshers were supposed to cough up the Rs 75,000 that the company spent on their training program, but the amount has been waived off. This comes at a time when Wipro has delayed onboarding for freshers for many months. Chief Human Resources Officer Saurabh Govil admitted that onboarding will be delayed, but that the company would not renege on any offers.
A fresher who was terminated due to poor performance at Wipro told, “I had got an offer letter in January 2022, but after months of delay they onboarded me. And now they are firing me giving the excuse of the test?”
