I am equally keen to understand your thoughts, ideas, and aspirations. It is disappointing that I will have to wait longer to meet all of you. I can’t wait to be among you
Disruption has always been a part of the business; Yes, today, our normal lives have been upended. The challenges are new. But I know that Wipro, with a history of 75 years, has overcome many challenges with tenacity and resilience.
Given the circumstances, our initial interactions may have to be limited to the virtual mode, but I plan to update you on our journey regularly.
Over the next few days, I will be spending time with senior leaders and teams across units and functions to take a holistic view of our business and (get a) better understand our opportunities and challenges
I had discussions on wide-ranging issues with Wipro’s chairman Rishad Premji. I was struck by his (Premji’s) clarity of thought, his principled approach towards leadership, and his commitment to bring about a cultural shift to create an environment that drives a growth mindset,” the communique said.
