Traditional India Inc is currently experiencing a talent drain as thousands of bright young leaders flock to join e-commerce companies and other start-ups. What can sectors like FMCG, banking, manufacturing and IT do to hold onto top talent, asks India’s businesstoday? “Traditional companies are […] focusing a lot on identifying high potential talent who have the ability to take on bigger roles and are investing in them. They are also offering them roles which they have never done before,” says Egon Zehnder consultant Pallavi Kathuria.
