IT-ITeS Sector Skills Council (SSC NASSCOM) in partnership with TalentSprint has launched a nationwide programme for Talent Acquisition professionals in the IT-BPM industry called the Talent Acquisition Professionals Forum or TAP Forum.
There are over 30,000 Talent Acquisition Professionals in the IT-BPM industry who play a critical role in the success of organisations. A recent study revealed that recruiting is the most important human resources function when it comes to ROI and companies that excel in recruiting experience have 3.5 times more revenue growth than their less capable peers. The TAP forum is a real plus virtual community platform for Talent Acquisition Professionals to imbibe industry best practices, celebrate successes, and network with each other.
Dr BVR Mohan Reddy, Chairman, NASSCOM, welcomed the initiative and stressed the critical role of Talent Acquisition Professionals in the success of organisations. He also talked at length about the importance of IT/BPM professionals to become certified. He urged the industry to adopt the SSC recommendations for 10 per cent of their total recruitment this year.
Dr. Sandhya Chintala, Executive Director, SSC NASSCOM & Vice President, NASSCOM said, “With 10 million new college graduates entering the workforce every year, India has the potential to become the workforce of the world by 2020. However, the key to ensuring availability of high level skill is by standardizing and certifying them. The SSC NASSCOM Qualification Packs are a solution that talent acquisition professionals can use to raise the quality of the talent pool in their organization.”
Dr. Santanu Paul, MD & CEO, TalentSprint said, “We intend to create events and a virtual platform where Talent Acquisition Professionals can learn, celebrate and network with each other. The intent is to inspire the TAP fraternity to become more strategically aligned and contribute significantly to organizational productivity. We invite the community to join this movement to up-skill themselves in order to grow and stay relevant in their careers.”
The next leg of the event will be held in Bangalore, followed by Chennai, Pune and New Delhi.
