Why attend HR Summit 2019?

A report from McKinsey states that 90 to 95 million low skilled workers are going to flood the economy in upcoming years. As a repercussion, there is going to be an estimated shortage of 30 - 35 million high skilled labour by 2020. The employers are worried as to how to bridge this gap to meet the expectations of the recruiters. Another survey conducted by the Manpower Group has highlighted the concerns of the recruiters. As per the survey, 56 percentage of employers in India find it difficult to fill the jobs with people having the exact skill set that goes in alignment with the vacancy. ASSOCHAM says that the 5500 B-schools of India are able to churn only 7 per cent employable youth that meets the expectations of the industry and alike opportunities.

The objective of the HR summit is to invite the think tank of the nation and then suggest the way forward. It is crucial for the growth of the economy to strengthen the education system that compliments the demands of the industry in terms of skills expected from the Human Capital.
