Wipro launched this programme last year and after seeing the success, company decided to continue the programme. Wipro is expecting around 100 employees around the globe to join 'Indian Gateway' this year.

"Going forward, the number of local hires abroad will only increase. Management also has to come from local talent more in the future. Keeping that in mind, we felt it was important to have local immerse themselves in the culture of the company. Having them train here is a great way to do that," says Sourabh Govil, senior vice-president-human resource, Wipro.

He added "we expect these trainees to make up the middle management rung in the near future, and then, go on to take bigger leadership roles."

Pratik Kumar, executive vice-president, human resources opined "the anxiety that we had, in terms of visa issue, and interest level amongst students to come and work here, has been put to rest. The issues are much smaller than we had anticipated, students are showing a lot of interest, and we will definitely be recruiting for the program in larger number."
