Spirit of Wipro Run brings together
Wipro Limited (NYSE: WIT, BSE: 507685, NSE: WIPRO), a global leader in information technology, consulting and business process services, today hosted the 16e Annual âSpirit of Wiproâ (SOW) race, attracting thousands of participants from over 35 countries to run together in the spirit.
For the past sixteen years, Wiproites around the world have come together to celebrate Wipro’s core values. The annual SOW race aims to inspire employees to be responsible citizens of the world.
This year’s theme was âTogether. To Greatness â, inspired by the resilience demonstrated by Wiproites in a year of unprecedented disruption. In addition to surpassing all corporate metrics, the Wipro teams have remained committed to supporting their colleagues and creating lasting social impact in all communities.
Like last year, this year’s race was also virtual, and runners strictly adhered to local COVID-19 guidelines and safety protocols while participating in the event.
Even under these conditions, the enthusiasm was great. Participants used the free Strava app to track their progress and stay in touch with other runners around the world. Wipro also encouraged employees to share selfies and videos before and throughout race day, which the company organized and shared on internal channels and on social media.
Each year, all profits from the Spirit of Wipro Run are matched 100% by Wipro and are used by Wipro Cares, the community initiatives arm of Wipro Limited. In the past, these donations were mainly used to support the education of disadvantaged children. In 2020, most of the proceeds were spent on pandemic relief efforts and will continue this year as well. Through these contributions and the company’s broader community impact, Wipro continues to work on its vision of creating a more equitable and sustainable society for all.
After participating in the event, Thierry Delaporte, Chairman and CEO and Managing Director, Wipro Limited said, âWipro’s commitment to progress goes beyond digital innovation and business transformation. The Spirit of Wipro Run is proof of that. We are a global family driven by a common commitment – to support each other, seek a healthier future, and give back to our communities. ”
Saurabh Govil, President and Chief Human Resources Officer, Wipro Limited said: âAfter such a humbling year, it is moving to see Wiproites all over the world coming together, albeit virtually. The spirit of Wipro Run embodies the values ââand culture that make us a resilient and motivated organization. We believe that the event’s contributions will help create a positive impact on local communities in the countries where we operate. ”
