Employment on merit, says Wipro czar Premji

By Super

Bangalore, Apr 19: Wipro Czar Azim Premji today said his company would go purely on merit while recruiting employees.

Speaking to newspersons after announcing the company's 2005-06 results, he said the software major, which crossed two billion Dollars in revenue deriving 80 per cent of it from global operations, was in the services segment and was largely ''people dependant''.

Not wanting to join the current controversy on private sector providing reservation in employment, Mr Premji said ''we have no alternative to hiring best talent with operations in India and globally being critical as IT services are people dependant...we have to go seek people with merit''.

He said the company, which had over 53,000 employees, would be hiring people across the country for its operations in various centres, including Bangalore where it had a large presence. However, he declined to divulge the numbers, stating that the company was expecting to grow at about 34 per cent during the current fiscal.
