Wipro has terminated 452 freshers on the grounds of performance. In a statement Wipro spokesperson said: “We had to let go of 452 freshers after they performed poorly in assessments repeatedly, even after training. At Wipro, we take pride in holding ourselves to the highest standards. In line with the standards we aim to set for ourselves, we expect every entry-level employee to have a certain level of proficiency in their designated area of work.”
The company further elaborated that, the evaluation process includes assessments to align employees with the business objectives of the organization and requirements of our clients.

“This systematic and comprehensive performance evaluation process triggers a series of actions such as mentoring and retraining and in some cases separation of certain employees from the company,” said the statement.
