Wipro founder Azim Premji has requested employees to find common ground, increase their dedication to others and to values to guide their activities in the New Year, to add to the organization’s ability to improve the lives of disadvantaged people.
“The importance of this success of Wipro has become manifold more, because it’s the success of Wipro that enables the possibility of making a difference to some of the most disadvantaged people in the world,” Premji asked to employees in a New Year letter.
About 40% of Wipro is owned by a philanthropic trust that works to enhance conditions in Indian rural areas.
He also added that the year 2016 had raised issues and impediments which could not be overlooked.
“These questions have arisen from developments in the political arena, from the fast unfolding environmental crisis and from forces that want to shape the world into a place of exclusion, conflict and suspicion,” said Premji.
Britain’s vote to leave the European Union and Donald Trump’s win of the US Presidential Election have both raised concerns for Indian IT firms, that now fear a more protectionist position in their significant markets.
