Firing or Hiring Squad: The Great Job Jolt
A bleak outlook for the world economy has compelled a number of IT companies and Wall Street giants to lay off employees across offices in different countries. The tech quartet-Google, Amazon, Microsoft and Meta—have already announced mass layoffs. Indian employees have been affected too. But tech is just part of the story. Elsewhere, especially in India, there are hundreds of jobs with no takers or requisite skills. Also, many CEO turned entrepreneurs are doing a ghar wapsi to the corporate world. Host Anupriya Nair analyzes the comings and goings of the job market with Saumya Bhattacharya, National Editor: Careers, Workplace and Education, K Sudarshan, MD EMA Partners India & Regional Partner for EMA Asia and Lohit Bhatia, President Workforce Management at Quess Corp Limited.
