In yet another revelation, Wipro chairman Rishad Premji revealed that the business dismissed one of its top 20 leaders ten minutes after discovering a “serious integrity infraction.” This comes only a few weeks after the company fired hundreds of employees for working overtime.

This speech was given by Wipro Chairman Rishad Premji at the Nasscom Product Conclave in Bengaluru on October 19. “We decided in less than ten minutes.” This individual was important to the organization, but “when things are tight and you have to make those dreadful calls,” he explained.

He did not specify if the violation was due to moonlighting or something else. Rishad  Premji also declined to answer press questions on the occasion.


Wipro’s chairman has stressed the importance of honesty to the IT services firm for the second time. In September, he called it a “complete violation of integrity in its purest form.” This admission was also made at a meeting of the All India Management Association.

“Any type of integrity breach or harassment is strictly prohibited.” “You can be me in the company, and if I violate either of those two, I’m out,” Rishad Premji added.  He described another senior employee who was getting someone else to tag in and out for them after the IT services firm had to let them go six and a half years ago.

“We discovered out, and he was fired right away.” This individual was well-connected and used every available technique to exert pressure on the company to provide him a clean, relieving certificate. “On this, we claimed we were black and white,” he explained.

Every IT firm in the country has agreed that moonlighting is a moral and ethical concern. He counseled entrepreneurs to make difficult decisions and to prioritize the creation of valuable businesses overvaluation.

“Today, unicorn status and how much you’re worth are obsessions… “If your goal is to make money rapidly, the type of organization you would develop would be radically different from one that you want to last,” he explained.

Rishad Premji also suggested that entrepreneurs must hire qualified employees. “Those who are tremendously successful but leave a trail of 1,000 dead bodies are the most hazardous persons in organizations.” This, however, cannot be sustained. It’s unlikely to get you far in large corporations. “It only gets you to a point,” he continued.

Rishad Premj talked about the hybrid work strategy and said that all Wipro employees should return some of the time.
