In­di­ans are Dig­i­tally Tal­ented

PCQuest - - CONTENTS -

Glob­ally, 54% of the or­ga­ni­za­tions agreed that the dig­i­tal ta­lent gap is ham­per­ing their dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion pro­grams and that their or­ga­ni­za­tion has lost com­pet­i­tive ad­van­tage be­cause of a short­age of dig­i­tal ta­lent. The sce­nario in In­dia is no dif­fer­ent. Sixty-four per cent (64%) or­ga­ni­za­tions in In­dia cite a widen­ing ta­lent gap over the past few years, re­veals a joint sur­vey by LinkedIn and Capgem­ini.

The re­search, how­ever, re­veals that In­dia ranks high­est in pro­por­tion of dig­i­tal ta­lent at 76%, fol­lowed by Italy at 66% and Spain at 65%.

In fact, In­dia, the United King­dom, and Ger­many have the largest sup­ply of dig­i­tal ta­lent per 10,000 to­tal mem­bers in the coun­try. But, for ev­ery 4 dig­i­tal ta­lent mov­ing into In­dia, 10 move out of the coun­try. US (47%), UK (14%), UAE (6%) are the top coun­tries from which dig­i­tal ta­lent is mi­grat­ing to In­dia. More­over, US (50%), Aus­tralia (8%) and UK (8%) are the top three coun­tries to which ta­lent from In­dia is mov­ing to.

The global re­search was con­ducted across nine coun­tries—France, Ger­many, In­dia, Italy, the Nether­lands, Spain, Swe­den, the United King­dom, and the United States and seven in­dus­tries— Au­to­mo­tive, Bank­ing, Con­sumer Prod­ucts, In­sur­ance, Re­tail, Tele­com, and Util­i­ties.

Among in­dus­tries, Au­to­mo­tive (64%) and Con­sumer Prod­ucts (63%) have the high­est pro­por­tion of dig­i­tal ta­lent glob­ally.

Glob­ally, em­ploy­ees worry that their skills are ei­ther al­ready re­dun­dant or soon to be­come so. In In­dia, 49% be­lieve that their cur­rent skill set will be re­dun­dant in the next 4–5 years and 34% be­lieve that this will hap­pen as early as the next 1-2 years. Among the em­ploy­ees sur­veyed glob­ally, 47% stated dig­i­tal skill de­vel­op­ment to be a key rea­son to switch to a new or­ga­ni­za­tion.

In 52% of or­ga­ni­za­tions, train­ing bud­gets for dig­i­tal ta­lent have re­mained flat or de­creased. 45% em­ploy­ees also say the train­ing pro­grams are not help­ing them gain new dig­i­tal skills, and 42% say the train­ings they at­tend are “use­less and bor­ing”.

The re­search also urges or­ga­ni­za­tions to for­mu­late a dig­i­tal ta­lent strat­egy to ad­dress the ta­lent gap.
