Xpheno Releases Landmark Staffing Report T+ve
Another highlight of the evening was the release of the landmark report T+ve: Building and Sustaining a Talent-positive Telangana. The insights from the report shed much light on the state of Telangana’s talent pool.
“Telangana happens to be one of seven Indian states that has a net-positive flow of talent, absorbing more talent than it loses to other geographies. Over 1.6M job seekers from other states have stated Telangana as a preference for relocation. A million of this talent comes from other megacities,” said Anil Ethanur, Co-founder, Xpheno. “Telangana has very strong inbound and outbound talent corridors with all major talent states and their megacities. Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Maharashtra are the top states which have strong 2-way talent movements, Ethanur added.
The corporate interaction also entailed a rousing discussion on ‘Women in the Workforce: Can we reach the 50% mark?’. A fireside chat led by Kamal Karanth was held as part of the event to focus on this aspect.
