Insights & Research


The Problem Statement
India faces a serious lack of employable talent. Only 10% of all talent being churned out by the academia today is employable. It is vital here to differentiate between mere talent and employable talent. While there is abundant talent in India, the proportion of industry-ready candidates is alarmingly low, posing a huge challenge for the industry in meeting its requirement.

The need of the hour are initiatives which seamlessly link all stakeholders in the education value chain to  understand the expectations of industry,identify the employable talent pool and provide a platform to this pool to showcase its skill sets to the industry detailed feedback on skills gap to facilitate training and orientation.

Gap that exists today

  • What are those critical skill sets that are rendering large chunks of the talent pool unemployable?
  • How do we identify those skill gaps across our colleges/universities?
  • What benchmarks can help create common yardsticks for measuring how the needle moves, in terms of skill development
  • What are the training initiatives we need to roll out to make the remaining 80% of the talent pool employable?
  • What is the role of the various stakeholders in achieving this?
  • How do we continuously measure and track progress ?
