Wipro’s benched staff receive pay cuts

Wipro’s benched staff receive pay cuts. In an extended bench period, the employees who are put on the bench will be on the loss of pay. This extended period will last for 3 months

Wipro's benched staff receive pay cuts

The company says that these employees will only receive insurance coverage and nothing else. Usually, in IT companies, the bench means that the employee is not part of any billable projects.

The count usually varies from 5-7% employees on the bench at any time. In bigger companies, the count can be more. In Wipro, the new change is directed towards employees who are already on the bench and received a bad assessment of their work.

The company sends out an email to the employees stating that while on the bench the employee may choose to use their available leave balance. Once the leave quota is over, the employee will be on unpaid leave for the rest of the period on the bench.

These are one of the first actions taken by the new CEO. If any employee fails to join any billable project in the given period, the company has the right to terminate the employee, according to the new rules.

Indian companies lack empathy: Ratan Tata

In an interview, Mr.Ratan Tata says that the top leadership of these companies does not have empathy for its employees. In his own words “These are the employees who worked for you. These are the people who have served you all their careers. You send them out to live in the rain. Is that your definition of ethics when you treat your labor force that way?”

This pandemic has brought several losses to the Tata group. But still, these companies did not layoff any of its employees. Across the nation, several companies fired their employees due to lack of revenue

However, the salaries of the top officials at the Tata company are cut by 20%. Almost all the Tata group companies belonging to Airlines, Hotels, Finances, have incurred several losses

But they did not fire any of their employees till now. Mr. Ratan Tata says that if the company is not sensitive to its people, it cannot survive.

He also says that the important thing right now is to not shy away from making difficult decisions.
