There are three kinds of CHROs. The first is the CHRO who gets the work done and oversees compliance. The second leads the talent heads, the talent acquisition team and the talent management team. The third kind are the ones who are becoming the transformers or drivers of business.

With government initiatives like Smart Cities and Make in India, business growth will no longer be limited to the top 10 major cities. From job postings in employment exchanges and employment newspapers, to the next-gen #IamHiring posts on Twitter, the world of talent acquisition has transformed significantly.
Talent crunch is often quoted as a serious problem by companies across different industry sectors. The changing socio-economic, infrastructure and policy environment in India has facilitated India Inc. to expand its footprints rapidly in various parts of the country, including small districts and towns. At the same time, however, there is an acute shortage of talent that is impacting businesses.

But, I am not writing another obituary or a condolence message. I do not believe this to be a case of worker –management relationship failure and the blame does not lie with any one party.
