Department of HRM organizing Guest Lecture on Talent Acquisition on 13th May 2021

The current business environment is marked with challenges of intense global competition, rapid technological changes, growth of the knowledge economy, and the need for flexibility and expertise in the workplace . This has resulted in the changing skills and competency requirements. Concomitantly, due to the pressures of a changing demographic base, the demand for intellectual capital–a cadre of highly skilled, independent, internationally marketable and mobile individuals–is exceeding the highly competent employees many choices (Srivastava and Bhatnagar, 2008) especially in professional, information / knowledge based, technical and service driven organisations (Ewing et al., 2002). Prospective employees are as particular about choosing the right organisation This has critical consequences for the recruiting organisations as it leads to the most pressing problem of talent acquisition- of attracting people with the right skill set and competencies who also fit the need and the culture of the organisation (Bhatnagar and Srivastava, 2008). Organisations that attract a larger applicant pool and more qualified applicants obtain greater utility in their selection systems and a potential competitive advantage.

Ms. Papia Das, currently associated with Catenon India (Executive Research Firm) as Consultant, will be sharing her insights on this challenging yet interesting domain of HRM.

The Department of HRM is hosting a Guest Lecture on "Essential Elements of Talent Acquisition"

On Thursday, May13, 2021, from 10 am-11 am
