The staffing Industry in India has grown in the past few years. Temp staffing has also grown and distinctions between permanent and temp have also become fuzzy. Some organizations have policies where staff can leave any day, without any notice period. So the distinction between temp and permanent has become fuzzy.


In Conversation with Prajjal Saha

Changes and disruptions have happened throughout history, and today’s change is no different. Changes will take place slowly and unevenly across sectors, allowing people to adapt to such changes. Rather than many people losing jobs, people will adapt to the technological changes that will happen.

Vernacular, on-demand, continuous micro-learning is the solution to many of the obstacles faced by organizations today in the field of training. It imposes no restrictions on dedicated training time, and is easier for trainees to grasp since it is imparted in bite sized chunks in a language they understand.


In Conversation with Abhijit Bhaduri

The shift brought in by technology ensures that what we learn today is no longer enough tomorrow. People also live longer, and thus have to be able to sustain themselves longer. The age when people worked in the same job with the same knowledge their entire careers is gone. Everyone has to remain relevant and keep learning.


In Conversation with Suman Ghose

We are now entering the creative economy, moving on from the knowledge economy. Passion, dedication, creativity cannot be demanded, unfortunately.

Teams of the future will be nebulous entities, working from flexible pools of human resource. Training will be left to the individual rather than the organization, as they just get to pick and choose talent for optimizing their output.

In Conversation with Rahul Gupta

Rahul Gupta Companies exist to make human life better It therefore makes no sense if employees work towards making other people’s lives better but are miserable themselves. Organizations must therefore pay heed to the welfare of their own employees. Employees should be motivated enough to think that they want to get to office in the morning and start working on a project that ties in with the objectives of the company. Young people are underrated, and higher-up executives are overrated. A...


In Conversation with Bhawani Singh Shekhawat

Bhawani Singh Shekhawat Education today is making the youth, at the very best, exam ready- but not job ready. Moreover, the grading system today leaves much room for doubt about the real abilities of the examinees.
