Employees' union NITES called Wipro's move to reduce wage offers to freshers awaiting onboarding by roughly 50% under one programme "unjust" and "unacceptable," and requested that the IT business reconsider its choice. Market watchers claim that Wipro's choice underscores both the issues facing the demand environment for technology businesses as well as general macroeconomic uncertainty. Wipro, a major provider of IT services with headquarters in Bangalore, recently contacted individuals to whom it had previously extended an offer of 6.5 lakh per year (LPA) and asked them whether a 3.5 lakh offer would enough. These applicants apparently awaited being hired. The union for IT workers, NITES, has denounced the action, calling it "unjust" and "contravenes the values of openness and justice." NITES has urged management to rethink its choice and hold substantive talks with the union to come to a win-win conclusion."Like others in our business, we continue to examine global economies and client demands, which feed into our recruiting strategies," Wipro stated in a recent message to applicants who had successfully completed the Velocity training programme. We value your perseverance and dedication as we look for joining chances for you. Wipro continued, "At this time, we have a few project engineer opportunities open for hiring with an annual salary of Rs. 3.5 lakh." "We would want to provide a chance for all of our Velocity graduates in the FY23 batch to choose for these opportunities." In response to a question about the matter, Wipro said via email:
"Given the shifting macro environment and, therefore, our business demands, we had to."change our onboarding strategies." This offer gives individuals the chance to begin their careers, expand their knowledge, and gain new skills right away thanks to the intriguing and creative work we perform as well as our extensive learning and development programmes, according to Wipro.According to Wipro, it is dedicated to the development and success of every employee and is eager to welcome this new cohort of recent graduates. NITES (Nascent Information Technology Employees Senate), a union for IT workers, said it severely opposed Wipro's "unethical" decision to decrease the pay of prospective employees from a package of 6.5 lakh per year to 3.5 lakh per year. "The decision to reduce employee compensation without first consulting them and without engaging in discussion is not only unfair, but also violates the values of justice and transparency." Harpreet Singh Saluja, president of NITES, said it was unacceptable that the employees were exclusively responsible for the company's financial difficulties. NITES has urged the management to To find a solution that benefits all parties, the company should rethink its decision and hold a serious discussion with the union.
