“The increased local investment is part of our new operating model, which has identified the Nordics as one of the Strategic Market Units in Europe. As such, we are positioning ourselves as an innovation partner to businesses in the region,” said Vinay Firake, Senior Vice President & Managing Director, Nordics, Wipro Limited.
With its new operating model, it intends to empower local management in order to provide more detailed local contact, decision-making, and investment for the long-term benefit of local clients. In Norway, 95% of the company’s total workforce is local. Wipro intends to maintain this level in its next phase of growth.
“We firmly believe that technology is critical to solving the different challenges we face today while shaping the world of tomorrow. To help our clients realize their transformation goals, we will be looking to hire for a range of roles from IT consulting, engineering, and industry domain—all in the local market,” said Firake.
“Our employees are the drivers for growth, and their happiness is key to our success. As our society gets increasingly diverse, we also need to make sure that our workforce represents this diversity,” he added.
The Wipro company first established itself in Norway and the Nordics in 2006. Since then, Wipro has helped transform the business operations of some of the region’s largest companies.
