Wipro experienced a decrease in employee turnover during the first quarter of the fiscal year 2023, with a rate of 23.3 per cent on a quarter-to-quarter basis. However, it was still higher than the same period in the previous year.

Reportedly, Thierry Delaporte, CEO, Wipro, stated during an earnings call that the company’s investments in talent are starting to pay off, and that the move to a quarterly promotion cycle and salary increases for eligible employees will be effective in 2022.

In the quarter, Wipro hired 15,446 employees, including over 10,000 new graduates. The company’s leaders have previously stated that employee turnover has a significant impact on its cost structure, as new hires are often brought on at a premium of 25-30%.
