Majority of Indian organizations lag in talent development initiatives: Cornerstone Report

Cornerstone OnDemand, Inc. a leader in learning and talent experience solutions, today announced the release of its 2023 Talent Health Index: India edition, providing a comprehensive view of the state of talent programs across organizations in India. The report reveals that the majority of organizations in India are lagging in their talent development initiatives, emphasizing the crucial need for organizations to construct a comprehensive talent strategy aimed at bridging the workforce skills gap and adapting to sweeping workplace changes.

Key findings :

  • Most organizations have significant room for talent program improvement: The average THI for organizations in India placed them in the ‘Administrative‘ maturity level, demonstrating a mastery of the basics but a very early exploration of new innovation. At this level, talent programs are behind in automation, and organizations lack a robust learning strategy.
  • Organizations are slow to adopt emerging talent innovation: Only 17% of organizations say that they leverage a sophisticated set of learner-centric tools to streamline talent processes and information, and more than 55% of organizations stated that they are not yet leveraging AI technology to optimize their talent.
  • Organizations need to take comprehensive action to master skills intelligence: Only 39% of the organizations surveyed focus on identifying current and future skilling needs, aligned with business strategy.

High-Performing Organizations are Fit for the Future

Not all organizations are lagging in maturity. The report showed that organizations that rated themselves higher in customer satisfaction, productivity, employee retention and overall performance — categorized as High-Performing Organizations (HPOs) — exhibited a notably higher score on the Talent Health Index as well.

On average, HPOs landed at the ‘Sophisticated‘ maturity level and, specifically, exemplified higher maturity levels in these three dimensions: Learning & Development, Talent Mobility and Talent Reporting, Data & Analytics.

“Organizations must invest in a well-rounded, multi-faceted talent management strategy to thrive amidst evolving workplace challenges. The average Talent Health Index score in this first India edition placed organizations in the ‘Administrative‘ maturity level, suggesting that there is a lot of room for improvement. Talent leaders must act urgently and adopt a whole-system approach to build a comprehensive talent development ecosystem,” said Nishchae Suri, Managing Director – India, Cornerstone. The THI India edition will serve as a guide, helping organizations in India to identify significant opportunities, chart a path to success, and develop talent programs and employee experiences that drive real business transformation.
