  • Higher Costs, Time and Efforts to Train: Since companies have to hire in advance and in order to train the unskilled pool it invests huge on the training infrastructure.
  • Volatile Talent Demand Prediction: Business finds it difficult to predict well in advance. It also impacts the utilization as well as the bench cost.
  • Attrition: Finding and retaining candidates is a major challenge across many verticals due to low CTC, job taboo, etc
