Companies that win the war for talent will be the winners amid the rising demand for technology professionals and as demand outstrips supply, said Rishad Premji, executive chairman, Wipro.
Speaking at the Microsoft Future Ready event on Tuesday, Premji said, “The number one challenge companies have right now is talent. So any company that can win the war for talent will be the winner.”
His remarks come amid the huge talent shortage companies face even as demand continues to rise. “At some level, there is such a huge mismatch today between demand and just availability of supply,” Premji said.
To meet the demand, Wipro is doubling down on its fresher hiring and is looking to add 17,000 new hires in FY22, up from 9,000 the previous year.
