Amidst pandemic enforced lockdown, slow down of economy and massive jobs cut, Bengaluru based IT giant Wipro reported that it will go for a pay hike.

With the decision that will come into effect from September 1, 2021, about 80% of the total workforce will receive hike benefits. Interestingly, this is the second time in a year that Wipro has announced a pay hike.

"Wipro Limited will initiate merit salary increases (MSI) for all eligible employees up to Band B3 (Assistant Manager and below), effective September 1, 2021. In January 2021, the company had announced salary hikes for eligible employees in these bands, who form 80 per cent of the company's workforce – this is the second hike in this calendar year," a report quoted a statement from Wipro.

“On average, the increments will be in the high single digits for offshore employees while it will be the mid-single digits for onsite employees. The company will reward top performers with substantially higher increase,” the company's statement added.

While most of the IT employees are under stress due to reports of job cuts, the quarterly report for financial year 2021 results have come as sweet news as it reportedly stated that it will do all that is required to retain talent at the company.
