Having the right people in the right jobs is essential to a successful business strategy anywhere in the world – but especially in countries like India where you need people who really understand the complex markets and how to succeed in them – so hiring & managing people is a very important factor in your business strategy for India.

India’s labor markets are highly competitive and there is widespread job-hopping as the economy grows. Many young Indians do not expect to remain in the same job for more than 2-3 years and will expect to build their career (and salaries) by moving jobs quickly.

With different industries expanding at different rates, the labor markets for different industries are complex to understand and it is hard for foreign companies to know what the correct salary should be for each position and how to effectively motivate staff and navigate cultural differences.

For international companies to ensure business performance improvement hiring & managing people efficiently is of utmost importance. They need to recruit the best Indian employees and ensure their human resource management gets the most out of their team.
