The IT industry has been witnessing an increasing number of younger staffers quitting lately. This is especially the case among employees in the three to five-year experience level possessing digital skills, due to an increasing demand at the global level for such skills.

President and Chief Human Resources Officer at Wipro, Saurabh Govil, told Mint that the company wants to stay prepared for the shifting demand from customers. He added that the company has been better off as compared to many others in terms of attrition.
