Interestingly, contrary to common belief, almost 68 per cent of employers plan to increase headcount due to the adoption of AI and Machine Learning over the next 2 years."The global slow down has been impacting the IT sector in India for quite a while. Added to the circumstances, is the political uncertainty looming over the country due to general elections during data collection of this survey. Clearly, employers are being cautious in their short-term resource planning.," said ManpowerGroup's India and Middle East Managing Director Sandeep Gulati. "Real Estate sector, however, has seen an increased investor interest with a capital inflow to the tune of 1.1 billion USD led by the residential sector. We hope the gap between the demand of specific skills and supply is bridged with strategic long term talent planning in corporates in India. Hire, train and deploy is a strategy that can make a difference to mitigate this problem," he added (ANI)
