Indian IT services major Wipro has accelerated its hiring and posted 3,146 jobs in June 2020 as compared with 741 in the previous month. The firm bounced back in June driven by the US and India, which witnessed increase in job postings from 169 and 415 in May to 762 and 1,684 in June, respectively.
June also witnessed growth in job postings in cloud services, automation, artificial intelligence (AI) and digital platforms.
The announcement in June regarding the ban on H1-B visas until the end of 2020 could be a key driver for growth in job postings in the US, its main market. “Covid-19 pandemic resulted in a temporary slowdown in hiring for Wipro. However, long-term prospects look promising with Wipro’s cloud, AI and automation ambitions likely to weigh heavily on its hiring pattern,” said Aurojyoti Bose, lead analyst at GlobalData.
