The India Skills Report 2014 report jointly prepared by CII, PeopleStrong and Wheebox details an overall picture depicting how students rank in terms of skills that are imperative to judge their employability. For the demand side, about 100 Employers, spread across 10 major sectors like Manufacturing, BFSI, and ITES/IT etc. were surveyed to gauge the job demand and potential hiring forecasts of these employers for the coming year. The result was an industry wise hiring estimate for the coming year for different profiles.
The report is an effort to form the basis of an effective collaboration between the two ends of the Talent Supply Chain. On one hand, it aims to equip the students with information to access the job pool in the market, while on the other, to provide the employers an access to the skill reservoir of the country. The study tries to bring in a more realistic, holistic view of the skill and talent landscape in India.
The report was released at the 3rd National Conference on Skill Development 2013 organized by CII on 28-29 November, 2013 at New Delhi.
