Wipro reported a 4 per cent sequential rise in its consolidated net profit to Rs 3,087.3 crore for the quarter ended March, which was in-line with analysts’ expectations. The Bengaluru-based company’s consolidated revenue from operations rose merely 0.3 per cent on-quarter to Rs 20,860.7 crore for the reported quarter.

Wipro added 45,416 employees for the year ended March 31, 2022, a multi-fold jump from 14,826 people added in FY21, as demand for talent soared amid shift to digital and attrition spikes.
