As we read about the global layoffs and the anxieties around the looming recession, the recruitment climate in India appears different, especially for digital skills. While TeamLease EdTech’s latest report highlights a 67% fresher hiring outlook for ITs and 52% for Ecomm and Tech Startups; Randstad India’s insights show that the country’s stable geographical, economic and political foundation will yield an expected hiring rise between Jan-June 2023 for tech firms across India. Faced with an accelerated digital transformation and the continuous introduction of new-age technologies, the demand for new-age tech talent is not surprising.
However, the challenge that continues to impact recruiters is the limited supply of this new-age tech talent. The digital skill gap continues to be a cause for concern, with organisations investing money and time to train their in-house talent and new hires. This can result in detrimental opportunity costs as businesses are pressed to strategise and maximise growth amidst this economic uncertainty. Therefore, hiring the right talent, ready to elevate the output and impact of the organisation from day one, is what leaders actively look for.
This is where Masai School comes in, an outcome-driven skilling institute that promises you talent that delivers. Based in Bengaluru, it draws inspiration from Kenya’s Maasai Mara Tribe’s robust skilling techniques for self-sustenance and self-reliance. Dedicated to the mission of re-skilling India Inc, Prateek Shukla, Nrupul Dev and Yogesh Bhat came together in 2019 to start this institute that empowers tech companies to scale their operations quickly and more effectively with industry-ready talent by offering long-term and short-term courses on web development and data analytics.
How does Masai empower businesses to win the tech talent game?
