Thank you for your presence

“I recognize that you have a choice of different sessions and appreciate the fact that you have chosen to be in this session”

Anand Pillai

Consider This…

“41% of employers worldwide are struggling to find qualified job candidates”

-Manpower, Inc. Global Study (2007)

“We are looming toward a global talent shortage”

-IBM Worldwide Human Capital Study, 2007

What is a Skills Gap??

A significant gap between an organization’s skill needs and the current capabilities of its workforce

When an organization cannot grow and/or remain competitive because its employees do not have the right skills to drive business results

External Change Drivers








Internal Change Drivers








Skills Gap Poll 2006

Q: Is there a skills gap in your organization now or is one expected within the next year?

N = 369

3 Signs of a Skill Gap

  • Mismatch between the skills the workforce has and what is needed

  • Organization didn’t train employees in easier times, struggling to catch up in hard times

  • Number of high-skilled jobs needed to move org. forward is increasing

Impact of the GAP

Lack of skilled workers affects productivity , competitiveness – ’98 Council on Competitiveness report: worker skills are “the greatest competitive challenge” facing the U.S.

CEOs are focused on revenue growth, though deficiencies in skills and competencies threaten this agenda*

*“Your Turn: The Global CEO Study 2004.” IBM Business Consulting Services.

The bottomline…

Without skilled talent, organizations lack the capability to grow and succeed

The question becomes…

What can business leaders do within their organizations to assess the severity of the skills gaps they face now and will face in the future?

And… how can they close those gaps in ways that contribute to the growth of their employees and the success of their organizations?

Hiring is not a top priority, but IT managers are

focusing on the staff and IT structure

Cooking up a CEO!

“The exciting part about being a HCL’ite is that the rules of determining how far you can go are written by YOU. You could inscribe your name on a brick, a wall or a whole building depending on what you care to bring and deliver.”– Vineet Nayar, Trainee, Batch of 1985,

“It’s in the DNA…… 100 CEO’s in 30 years” Economic times, April 15 2005
