The HR problem in India is becoming more acute.
The human resources department in India has been plagued by a shortage of human resources since the Narendra Modi government came to power.
In an article published by the Times of India, HR department head, Jitendra Singh, said that India is facing an HR crisis because of its weak recruitment standards.
“We are facing a crisis in hiring, and the problem is not only because of the absence of talent,” Singh said.
The HR department in the capital, Delhi, has been under pressure to hire and keep the workforce supplied with personnel.
In recent months, the government has taken several steps to help fill vacancies and increase the supply of personnel.
The government has also increased the number of posts available to recruit from 3,000 to 5,000.
In his recent speech, the then HR minister, Manish Sisodia, had stated that India’s human resources departments are facing the HR crisis.
“The HR crisis has been brewing for a long time, and we have to solve it.
The number of vacancies in the HR department has gone up from 3 to 5 lakh,” he had said.
In fact, India is ranked as one of the top 5 countries in the world in terms of human resource management, according to a recent study by the Centre for World Development and Development Studies, a think tank in Delhi.
India’s HR departments have seen a rise in vacancies in recent years.
In March, the HR minister said that a “scarcity of qualified candidates” is holding back hiring.
“This has caused a lot of stress and a lack of confidence in the hiring process,” Singh had said at the time.
According to the report, India has the fifth-highest number of HR vacancies in South Asia, followed by the US and the UK.
The report also said that Indian HR departments do not have a sufficient number of human manpower in the workforce.
“It is a shortage in the supply chain and is not simply a shortage on the part of employers,” the report said.
Accordingly, in his latest speech, Singh had asked the HR officials to recruit and retain new staff and increase their staffing.
“Our HR department needs to recruit more people to meet the current demand.
We need to bring the quality of our talent up to scratch,” he said.
Singh had also said, “If we don’t have enough qualified people to fill vacancies, we cannot recruit people, and it’s a matter of urgency to find qualified people for the HR role.”
According to a study conducted by the HR Department of India in 2015, the country had the third-highest unemployment rate among countries in Asia and the Middle East.
India is currently ranked as the fifth worst economy in the region with unemployment at 13.4 per cent, while the country’s total unemployment rate is 9.5 per cent.
The survey also found that only 13 per cent of the Indian HR personnel had earned a master’s degree, compared to 70 per cent in the US.
