Hunting for talent

A recent study conducted by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) has revealed that human resource (HR) is the biggest challenge faced by India Inc, especially at the managerial, production and marketing levels due to the widening demand-supply gap.

 

"At a time when Indian industry is on the upswing, talent scouting and retention have become a major challenge for stakeholders. In a globalised economy, India Inc is finding it difficult to get CEOs (chief executives) and domain experts to run businesses," a top CII official said.
