Wipro Aims to Reduce Headcount by 30% through Automation

T K Kurien, CEO of Wipro, has announced that he expects his company’s recent investments in automation and artificial intelligence to bring about a 30 per cent reduction in headcount over the next three years.

He added that this will not lead to employees being laid off; rather attrition will be balanced with redeployment to new, high growth revenue streams.

Kurien believes that Wipro’s main future focus will be digital technology. “We expect digital to be among the top three service lines in the next three years,” Kurien revealed, speaking at Wipro’s analyst day.
