60% of more than 1,50,000 hot digital talent pool is very niche and are high trade skills in the market. Large and specialized organizations already focusing on lateral hirings, contract staffing and hire & train model for these hot skills in India. Hiring vanilla skills with 3+yrs experience and train them on specific digital skills in the market which become billable in 2-3weeks time rather hiring fresh graduates.

This turns employers to have contract staffing for short run or contract-hire model for long run need. It is so important that, employers need to make sure job descriptions are realistic versus aspirational to draw in suitable candidates from the market” said Saran, Founder & CEO of HAN Digital Solution.
