Disability-Inclusive Initiative

Wipro has been hiring persons with disabilities and supporting them to realize their full potential. In addition, Wipro has also supported employees who have acquired a disability during the course of their employment to enable them to continue building meaningful careers. Currently Wipro employs over 450 persons with disabilities. Its philosophy is to enable careers. Many of these employees hold responsible positions in mainstream business activity, and are encouraged in their career ambition.

Wipro adopted a comprehensive framework in 2009 to enable an equal opportunity environment for persons with disabilities. Wipro has introduced several initiatives to support the careers of persons with disabilities. These include making physical and digital infrastructure accessible, transforming software applications to suit people with disabilities, designing more inclusive training programs, making its training programs inclusive and building awareness through campaigns.

Today Wipro’s inclusive initiative is an integral part of its sustainability movement. Wipro’s efforts within the organization and outside are part of a deep belief that inclusion is the right thing to do and should be a way of doing business.
