Our mission is to revolutionize the way organizations manage and develop their most valuable asset: their people. With a global reach and unwavering commitment to excellence, we are proud to strengthen our presence in India following the strategic acquisitions of EdCast and SumTotal. Our goal is to empower India's talent landscape by providing cutting-edge technology and comprehensive talent mobility solutions that address the unique challenges and opportunities in this thriving market.

India's talent landscape: A story of opportunities and growth

India's talent landscape is brimming with immense potential and poised to reshape the industries in the coming years. The demand for skilled talent in India is on the rise, as it is a strategic growth market for us with a trillion-dollar economy. We partner with academia and the government, working closely with companies and the private sector to unlock tremendous opportunities and value.

However, amidst the vast opportunities, organizations in India are facing a pressing need to upskill and reskill their workforce. Leaders increasingly recognize the importance of investing in employee development to stay competitive in a rapidly evolving market.

Talent mobility: The key to success in 2023 and beyond

In this dynamic landscape, talent mobility emerges as the key to success for organizations in 2023 and beyond. By leveraging the power of talent mobility, organizations can seize opportunities in new markets, drive expansion, and gain a competitive advantage in a globalized economy.

We understand the critical role talent mobility plays in unlocking India’s full potential. Through insights and data-driven strategies from industry reports and articles, we help organizations identify and develop the right talent, foster a culture of continuous learning, and drive sustainable growth in the Indian market.

Cornerstone’s perspective on India’s talent market

Our leaders have deep insights and a profound understanding of the Indian market. They champion the new mandate of holistic people growth experiences. Results from various reports show that the pursuit of happiness and satisfaction has become a top priority for Gen Z and Millennials, with over 40% and 38%, respectively. This mindset represents a larger movement seeking greater fulfillment in the workplace.

Nishchae Suri, Managing Director India, Cornerstone, emphasizes the growing realization among organizations and their leaders to upskill employees. “Forty seven percent of global leaders report not knowing the skill gaps their current employees have. They struggle to build skill development solutions fast enough to meet evolving needs.” In an era of AI-driven job displacement, economic uncertainties, and widespread resignations, organizations must confront the challenge of "quiet quitting" and take proactive steps to retain and engage their employees.

Himanshu Palsule, CEO, of Cornerstone, believes that “Learning is not an outcome, it is a journey, a catalyst, and the force behind all changes and innovations that occur in the world today. It is the force that unleashes limitless potential organizations driving talent development at scale and empowering individuals and institutions to engineer world-changing ideas.”

Embracing career mobility and upskilling: Cornerstone's advanced solutions

To thrive, organizations must focus on building a holistic learning experience that empowers employees to take charge of their own learning journeys. They need to move beyond sporadic skill interventions and embrace a comprehensive, continuous learning approach.

Karthik Suri, Chief Product Officer, Cornerstone highlights, "Our talent experience platform is designed to unlock the limitless potential of your workforce and streamline how you do it. It is an integrated solution that leverages best-in-class learning and talent management tools to deliver holistic, engaging, and personalized people growth experiences.”

Mohit Kapoor, Group CTO of Mahindra Group, states the importance of embracing automation to augment employee and customer experience in this digital-first-era. “The growth of digital adoption, even in rural and semi-urban areas of India, has been significant. Organizations must adapt to remain competitive and embrace automation as a transformative tool.”

Talent supply chain management: The new business imperative for HR

Human capital management is often used for functions or departments that manage a company’s people and processes. One thing I like about this term is that it equalizes how a company thinks about its capital assets (buildings and equipment) and people assets (skills and experiences of employees). Most business leaders understand supply chain management, which manages and monitors the flow of goods and services through a company. In this discipline, it is imperative to have an accurate inventory of all of your physical assets. But here is where it gets interesting. Rarely does the human capital management function (aka HR) think about talent supply chain management, and they definitely do not have an accurate count of skills within the company!
