HARI HEGDE Global Head of Operations and Business, WIPRO Limited
As Head of Operations at Wipro, a global IT company based in Bangalore, Hari appears to live and breathe this philosophy. He prompted the Karnataka State Water Network to improve the water situation in his city, implemented energy efficiency in all of Wipro's productions, and worked to improve urban mobility in Bangalore, together with local authorities, to the benefit of his own employees. "If I can get 20 percent more of our employees into a better-serviced public transportation system, that is 7,000 vehicles off the road; benefits in decongestion, opportunity in reduced parking, higher productivity, and so on is far beyond what you are investing. In all of these cases, the initiative started as a means of mitigating risks, but as soon as he explored the solutions available, "that's when opportunities of a much greater magnitude emerged."
Hari sees himself as part of a wider development in a globally connected world. With new technologies and social media, people have the means to be heard and get involved. "Businesses don't exist in isolation; they exist in societies," he explains.
This activism appears to come naturally to Hari. With every investment he is involved in, he asks himself if this is an opportunity to create a model that can become a self-regenerating force multiplier. "That is what drives me, and that's what bothers me. Not to let go of opportunities and to make a difference. Every opportunity I do not make use of, is an opportunity I have lost."
This approach, according to Hari, is a self-evident consequence of simple awareness about the state of our planet. "I call it the inevitability of innovation," he says.

Compared to its peers- Infosys Technologies, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and Tech Mahindra, Wipro has been a laggard in expanding its presence in the city.
