  • 5. www.peoplematters.in The size of the total retail market is $400 billion, and estimates say that it will go up to $650 billion in the next ten years. “The bottom-line is that the size of the pie is going to increase and organized retail is barely going to increase its slice from 6 percent to 12 percent, still 88 percent (it is an offhand number) will be with the unorganized retail sector.” If we look at retail, despite the statutory compliances which are applicable to unorganized store as well, do you think that the millions of mom & pop stores follow these compliances? Of course not.Santosh Mehrotra,Director-General,Institute of Applied ManpowerResearch, Planning Commission Click for full story
  • 6. Shailja Dutt, Managing Director, Stellar Search www.peoplematters.in With the recent policy announcements coming into effect, companies need to be prepared for an all-out war for talent. Paucity of talent in retail specific functions will be one of the key challenges confronting global retailers looking to set up shop in India and Indian retailers looking to compete with the best across the world in their industry. “With a vast majority of Indian retailers still new to the game, bringing on board seasoned retail professionals with the requisite vision, strategic foresight and global experience would be necessary.”Relying exclusively on expatriate professionals to bring in key competencies is not a viableproposition. Development of local talent will be the key for sustained success over the long term. Click for full story
  • 7. www.peoplematters.in Anuraag Maini, Executive Vice President, HR and Training, DLF Pramerica Life Insurance,We will have to tap into talent pools that we have never looked at before. We are looking at retaining andattracting women at different stages of their career and life. In addition to that, we are looking at gettingmore people from other industries; finally we are now more open to look at people from different age-profiles.Typically we look at not just the top tier talent or top 10 percent but also the next 20 percent. So, moreprograms would be targeting this top 30 percent.“The top talent, the top 30 percent will be in major demand. That is where the costswill also rise and they will be able to drive the market. So there will be an implicationfrom this level of talent.” Click for full story
  • 8. www.peoplematters.in Ashit Ranjan, Vice President HR, TechnovaThe reforms will result in expansion which will further result in increased demand for talent. The point tobe noted is, with international players coming in, quality of products and services will be of paramountimportance. To gain an edge, companies need to hire quality talent.“People will be the differentiator and HR needs to be aligned to the business toensure that optimum productivity is achieved for every buck that is spent.” HR needs to play a critical role, and will be seen as a business driver because the chances of failure willbe high if the people strategy does not match up to the demands of the business.

  • 9. www.peoplematters.in P. Dwarakanath, Director Group Human Capital, Max GroupReforms in FDI is a boon for Indian retail, both for the consumer and the potential employees, because itwill bring much needed cash flow for the industry, increased choices for consumers, and moreopportunities for potential employees.While we are very good in the retail market in India, we do not have multi-brand retail managementsystem and therefore, we need overseas operational expertise, with respect to people who have workedin countries where multi brand retailing is prevalent.“Further, the value chain of India will undergo a quantum change and the retailorganizations need to invest in systematic induction and training processes to ensureeffective assimilation of new joiners in the system.” Click for full story
  • 10. www.peoplematters.in Dr. Arvind Agarwal, President Corporate Development & Group HR, RPGIn India, we have shortage of talent at every level. Wages would also go up because of the supply-demand situation. Wages are anyways growing at a very fast pace as compared to many countriesof the world. Every year we see a wage increase of 10 percent to 12 percent which is higher than anycountry, anywhere.“The problem is that at all levels, the salaries are going up but the productivity is not.Wage increase needs to be justified by increase in productivity else it would notsustain.”Today we may still put someone on the front line, but tomorrow, with increased competition – the personput on the job will represent your company and your brand. Hiring in terms of quality would get tougher. Click for full story
