Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director at Wipro Limited, Thierry Delaporte, has posted a humble letter on Linkedin announcing support to Wipro Employees and their families. Support includes extended time off to recover from the disease, support family or friends, prioritize mental health, reimbursing employees and family members affected by Covid should their treatment costs exceed the insurance coverage.
It looks like Wipro CEO Thierry Delaporte fits perfectly in the organization that has a vision from Azim Premji – A philanthropist that every Indian should be proud of.
Tech giants and IT companies are coming forward to help Employees and their families during the second wave of Covid-19; however, Wipro is the only IT company that actively participated in helping India during the first wave of Covid-19.
Not everyone can say, “Wait, gives me a month. I will help you convert this 180,000sq—Ft of the Wipro building to a 450-bed covid hospital.
Wipro was the first IT company to convert its campus to covid-19. According to a report from Livemint, Maharashtra Chief Minister Thanked Wipro, saying Wipro has given the hospital in just one and a half months and sincerely thanked Rishad Premji (Azim Premji’s son) as well.

- Prioritize mental health and various company initiatives

Original Transcript of the Wipro CEO Letter Post on LinkedIn
“The second wave of the #Covid19 pandemic is having a devastating human toll, especially in India and Brazil. The pain we feel is deep because of our closeness to these communities, and we are humbled by the strength and resilience shown by our colleagues.
We have taken extensive measures to protect & support our colleagues and their loved ones. From extended time off to recover from the disease, support family or friends, or to prioritize mental health, to reimbursing employees and family members affected by Covid should their treatment costs exceed the insurance coverage. We have arranged fully-funded Covid Isolation Centres in various cities.
Last year, we had turned our tech campus in Pune, India into a five-storey Covid-Care hospital to serve anyone in need. Our 450-bed hospital with its 150 oxygenated, 10 ventilated and other ICU beds, and the 15 doctors and 70 nursing staff continue to treat patients round-the-clock.
To our customers who are writing in, your support and compassion is greatly appreciated. Last year you worked with us to swiftly enable home working that has helped provide protection to many of our employees. Your understanding goes a long way at this time.
The Wipro Limited family remains committed to helping during this crisis for as long as necessary.”
