India talent survey report 2012

Perspectives on young talent in India


Talent is at the center of the 21st century business equation. This is true around the world as well as in India. As global talent markets are increasingly interconnected and work through communications, virtualization, and digitalization more evenly distributed across the world, it is critical to continually sharpen our understanding of national, regional, and the global talent markets. This report is part of a global longitudinal series initiated by Deloitte in 2010 examining the perspectives of different generations of talent and business, Human Resource (HR), and talent leaders around the world. Our research over the past three years has highlighted critical insights and differences from business leaders and talent around the world. In this report, Deloitte, in partnership with All India Management Association (AIMA), shares our first India Talent Survey conducted in India in January and February this year.

The India Talent Survey 2012 examines employee expectations across gender, generations, geographies, and industries. Our aim is to better understand the evolving perspectives of talent: what is important in terms of retention, corporate values, communications, leadership and what do employees think of their HR and talent functions. Throughout the report we aim to put the survey results for talent in India in the broader context of similar studies conducted in 2011, which considered these questions at the global and regional levels, including the Asia Pacific region. The report is based on an online survey shared with employees of companies associated with AIMA and includes 2,122 responses. We hope the survey and report contribute to deepening our collective understanding of the concerns of young talent in India. We trust the report will be useful to business, HR and talent leaders, students, academics, and government leaders and managers.

Our report includes four major questions and categories of findings and concludes with a spotlight on the talent trends prevailing in the knowledge and professional services industry in India.
