Turning to India for Talent: India’s highly skilled labour force is the answer to the global talent crunch.
Around a million young Indians join the workforce every month. And because of the size and youthful demographics of the population, this driving force of growth will continue for the coming decades. The country will soon be home to the largest workforce in the world. This so-called ’demographic dividend’ is not only a boon for India, it can also help other nations whose economies are struggling because companies can’t find the skilled workers they need.
Increasingly, the world is looking at India as a source of talent, not solely because of the cost arbitrage, but because it offers skills and quality arbitrage too.
This report looks at international companies that are taking advantage of India’s skills, Indian companies delivering services to internationally, and some of the policy initiatives designed to make the UK-India partnership even stronger.
