DIFR Information Presentation

  1. 1. The significant problems that we face today cannot be solved at the same level of thinking we were at when we created them. -Albert Einstein
  2. 2. India, a land of shortage! <ul><li>According to industry estimates only a quarter of all graduates are employable and about 80% of job seekers in employment exchange are with out any professional skills. India is suffering from a massive shortage of skilled manpower. </li></ul><ul><li>Businesses in India have started spreading their tentacles in towns, cities and semi urban areas in search of newer markets. These are seen as future markets for telecommunications, FMCG and retail sector among others. As companies expand their operations , they are not finding enough trained people to fit into different positions. </li></ul><ul><li>IT body Nasscom says that the IT industry alone will be short of 206,000 skilled workers by 2009. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>The question arises: With half of its 1.2 billion population aged under 25, how can India possibly be short of manpower? </li></ul><ul><li>The problem lies in quality and not quantity of manpower. </li></ul>
  4. 6. We need additional trained manpower to achieve the business plans And we need it as of yesterday We want them to be productive from the day 1 Considering the deadlines, we do not have the privilege of detailed training and continuous handholding Please ensure that recruitment delays and errors are minimal
  5. 7. More people More people More Trained people Your last recruit did not meet our expectations What did you train him on? What did he learn? He just has learnt the basics. Not enough for us More people More people
  6. 8. How will we source manpower in such a short time? Tier ‘A’ cities are saturated. We will not be able to get guys within our budget We could get freshers from other cities. But we need to train them. If we put them on training, they will not be productive from day 1 Our requirements are so specific. We are not prepared for specialized training Moreover we do not have a presence in other cities. We also need to do a branding activity there We need to stretch our budget and timelines
  7. 9. ((Recruitment Branding Costs + Recruiter manpower costs + Logistics costs +Training costs ) Time delay) / probability of finding the right candidates + retention probability of the candidates + performance probability) = You know what, it is just not within our budget
  8. 10. We train people on technical skills only We can’t train people on soft skills Our output is directly proportional to recruiters input We are an internal group. How can we certify? You want us to take his performance responsibility? Technology keeps evolving. We do not have the manpower to constantly upgrade training
  9. 11. Will this guy adjust himself to our corporate culture? Will this guy be able to take the work pressure? He is sound technically. But what about his language skills? He knows the subject, but his computer skills are limited They just know the subject by scratch. How can we take them? We cannot take them. They do not meet our requirements We got targets to meet. Lets at least take the guys who meet 50% or our requirements
  10. 13. What do I study and where? How valid will be the course? It is accepted by the industry? Will I really learn something worthwhile or just purchase the certificate? What is the assurance that I will get a job after the course? Is my technical knowledge enough for employers or is there something more that is required? Will I be able to afford the course? Who will guide me? What should I do? Who will honestly assess my requirements and skills? Should I move to some big city to study for a job? But I cannot afford to…
  11. 15. Inconsistency Lack of expert instructors No Quality Assurance No way to authenticate teacher training or qualification Lack of accurate monitoring of learning achievements High cost Redundant teaching methods No accountability Lack of evaluation programs Lack of subject matter experts
