In the present business scenario, where India is more linked to the global economy, it is clear that businesses will have to continue to operate in an uncertain environment. In this context, the HR agenda will be to maximize efficiency and productivity. The conversations will therefore change from ‘help me design a particular HR program’ to ‘help me be more efficient in my delivery of HR programs’ – how can experts help me drive and measure efficiency and what services can you provide in that regards. The Indian buyer is very mature, clear about what they want and is a value-based buyer, and that makes the job of consulting firms even tougher. The nature of consulting services will see a change as the needs of the buyers change. And those that are able to respond to those needs faster are the ones which will thrive. As Indian MNCs increase their global footprint, there will emerge new opportunities for HR consulting firms to support these organizations and that is a huge opportunity.
