If you look at the ICT skills land­scape, what ac­cord­ing to you are the 2 chal­lenges the in­dus­try is fac­ing now?

1. We strug­gle to get ta­lent who have a good blend of deep Tech­ni­cal Skills and Front­line Lead­er­ship Com­pe­ten­cies

2. We no­tice vis­i­ble gaps be­tween aca­demic-bril­liance and in­dus­try-readi­ness of ta­lent who are pass­ing out from in­sti­tu­tions.

The Dig­i­tal Dis­rup­tion cou­pled with au­to­ma­tion has com­pletely changed the na­ture of tech skills re­quired for to­day’s ICT jobs – as an or­gan­i­sa­tion how are you cop­ing with sourc­ing the right skills?

The In­dus­try-Academia in­ter­ac­tions of­fers us op­por­tu­nity to en­gage with Fac­ulty and in uence cur­ricu­lum de­sign of in­sti­tu­tions whom we en­gage with. Our Ta­lent In­cu­ba­tion Pro­gram is struc­tured to in­grain foun­da­tional com­pe­ten­cies & pro­vide ex­po­sure to live projects. Fur­ther we in­vest in build­ing ro­bust re­sources in­ter­nally for con­tin­u­ous upgra­da­tion of skills for our em­ploy­ees. Some of the tech­ni­cal pro­grams are manda­tory for our work­force.

Our “Hire to Win” pro­gram con­di­tions ev­ery man­ager to the im­per­a­tives of ta­lent as­sess­ment. “Ag­ile Learn­ing” is one of the Six Key Be­hav­ior in Synop­sys and Hir­ing Man­agers as­sess the com­pe­tence lev­els of in­cum­bents as a part of our hir­ing process. In the event of a trade-off we hire ta­lent with the right val­ues, the re­quired tech­ni­cal pro­fi­ciency and then build upon the skills through well de­signed foun­da­tional cour­ses

What are your top 2 pri­or­i­ties for your HR or­gan­i­sa­tion the on­go­ing year and what makes your com­pany an em­ployer of choice of ICT job as­pi­rants?

The top 2 pri­or­i­ties for us in the re­gion while we are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing growth are scale and en­abling a cul­ture to ef­fec­tively deal with change. We are an Em­ployer of Choice as we are known to: a) Nur­ture ca­reers (against of­fer­ing just Jobs) and hence it is not un­usual to have em­ploy­ees with long tenures

b) Sus­tain­ing high Em­ployee En­gage­ment Scores which is at­trib­uted to In­dus­try lead­er­ship, qual­ity of jobs, in­vest­ment in tech­nol­ogy, an en­er­gized, in­clu­sive and di­verse cul­ture and ex­cel­lent work en­vi­ron­ment.
