A few of the top IT companies had a head start in dealing with the crisis thanks to their digital first focus. One such organization is Wipro.
For Wipro, digitization has always been the key guiding principle. Its focus has been to empower its employees with best- in-class learning opportunities and make them digital-ready. Way back in 2018, Wipro enabled more than 100,000 employees on digital skills.
