Mr. Anupam Jauhari, Vice President-Human Resources at Infogain said, “Human resources are critical for success of any organization. Retaining and nurturing quality talent is the biggest challenge for HR leaders in any industry. The IT industry has witnessed major changes in the recent past. On one hand we have an acute shortage of skills in niche tech areas, while on the other hand it is a large task to re-skill existing employees to match the changing requirements of businesses. The role of HR becomes more important in these times in order to guide, coach and help employees to ensure they make progress in their chosen career path.”
Anupam also discussed how companies are more cautious with hiring by focusing on acquiring specific skillset; and not merely increasing headcount. He shared specific tips on how students can better prepare themselves to match the requirements of today’s employers that included learning continuously, developing their communication skills or exploring new areas of work.
