The adoption of the remote work model has been driving the company business expansion in the country; Wipro has hired +1000 employees throughout the Brazilian territory in the last 12 months and is increasingly aligned with the "work from anywhere" model.
São Paulo, Brazil, February 24, 2022: Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO), a leading global information technology, consulting and business process services company, today announced that it will be hiring more than 500 new professionals over the next fiscal year to support its growth in delivering cloud solutions to clients. The company will be hiring throughout Brazil, especially in the Northeast region—mainly the capitals Recife, Fortaleza—as well as in Natal - Curitiba, Brasília, and cities in the countryside of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro states, among other locations, for a range of roles from IT and engineering to consulting, business development and operations (see full list here).
Wipro’s hiring goals are reflective of the company's strong growth in the Brazilian market driven by the human cloud concept, which helps organizations attract new talent and foster growth in a hybrid work environment.
“Our employees are the true drivers of our remarkable growth in Brazil, and our ongoing success is intrinsically linked to their happiness. We are committed to creating a culture that puts our people at the center of our business and empowers them to realize their full potential. As we continue our growth and serve some of the most prominent firms in Brazil, we look forward to welcoming our new cohort of colleagues to join us on this exciting journey,” said Douglas Silva, Vice President and Country Head, Brazil, Wipro Limited.
As the concept of full-time office gets replaced with one that is more flexible and more accommodating to the lifestyle choices made by today’s digital workforce, Wipro is increasing investments in its cloud capabilities to help customers achieve their business goals in this new world of hybrid work.
Wipro last year announced that it is planning to invest $1B in cloud technologies over the next three years and created Wipro FullStride Cloud Services to bring together the full portfolio of Wipro’s cloud-related capabilities, offerings and talent to better orchestrate the cloud journey for clients. To support these investments and its growth objectives, Wipro is also looking to train and certify +800 professionals in cloud solutions over the next 12 months in Brazil.
Wipro continues to support a people-first talent strategy, which aims to foster an equitable, flexible and compassionate work environment. The investments Wipro has been making in its HR practices and its employees earned Wipro a Top Employer 2022 certification in Brazil from the Top Employers Institute.
