Wipro says No Changes in Salary Hike plans: Earlier Statement will be effective from September, 2022.Due to severe margin pressure, software giant Wipro Limited has chosen to halt variable rewards for mid- and senior-level employees for the April–June quarter, according to persons acquainted with the situation who spoke to Moneycontrol.
According to sources, people in Band C (mid-manager level) and above are not receiving variable pay, and incentives for those in sales jobs have also been affected.
In response to concerns about a potential recession in the US, the largest technology market for Wipro and other Indian IT firms like TCS and Infosys, Wipro has decided to maintain variable pay and safeguard margins.
If employees in Band A and B (freshers and associates) meet the billability criteria, the company will pay them 70 percent of the target variable pay in addition to their August wage, which will be paid at the end of the month.
A portion of an employee’s cost to the business is variable compensation, which is based on either the employee’s or the business’s performance. While variable pay for entry-level workers ranges from 10 to 15 percent, it can account for as much as 20 to 30 percent of the salary for mid- to senior-level workers.
In an internal note that was received a few days ago, Wipro informed its staff of the changes. A portion of the letter has been read by Moneycontrol.In Q1FY23, the company’s attrition rate was 23.3 percent, slightly lower than the 23.8 percent recorded in the prior quarter. If variable pay is not offered, attrition may rise.
Operating margins have been under pressure for some time, according to an email sent to employees. It blamed this pressure on “inefficiency in our talent supply chain, project margins, and our investments in talent, technology, and solutions during the quarter,” which will keep happening because they are geared toward long-term value building.
Employees at Wipro were informed that the company was evaluated on three financial metrics—revenue, order booking, and margins—for variable pay and that the loss of margins prevented it from paying out the variable pay. Employees were informed that as performance improved, benefits would be distributed to them.
Regarding Moneycontrol’s inquiry regarding the amount of variable pay in the June quarter, Wipro made no comments. “Our earlier comment about salary increases remains unchanged, and raises for our staff will take effect on September 1, 2022. As of July 1, 2022, we have also finished the first cycle of quarterly progressions. Our attrition rate has been moderate, and we anticipate a similar pattern moving forward “In a statement, Wipro stated.
