Industry faces a complex paradox. In a land of abundance of labour, there is a shortage of skilled manpower. The reason behind this is lack of education and a significant mismatch between the existing education system and industry requirements. India needs 500 million skilled manpower in various sectors by 2022 . These numbers pose a challenge to the corporate world, which is hard-pressed to source the right candidate who would successfully contribute to the organisation’s growth. Lack of skilled manpower affects the company in multiple ways. There is a huge drop in efficiency, customer service, employee productivity and competitiveness. Apart from this, huge training costs, recruitment overheads and hidden business costs of people management for training existing employees also puts a lot of burden on organisation’s finances.
