FAs employee experience has become obsolete, there is a constant need to reinvent employee experiences, and engagement and ensure the employee wellness. Talking on the panel ‘Employee experience, engagement, and wellbeing in the Future of Work, Workforce & Workplace’, Mr. Sudhir Patro, Head – Corporate Sales, HCL Healthcare, said, “When we look at soft intervention is part of the entire offering somewhere but when we look at design interventions then we are saying from engagement to culture to policy making. If performance is a health matrix, then health also should be a health matrix.”

The most obvious effects of talent supply are the many actions that businesses or employees may take based on how simple or challenging it is to find employment or hire someone with the right skills. For instance, the availability of talent may affect how much an organisation invests in reskilling, how much employees look to switch jobs or employers, how an organisation uses the alternative workforce to access the skills and capabilities it needs, and how much it depends on technology to replace, support, or collaborate with its workforce. When asked Mr. Arup Gupta, Chief Human Resources Officer, Reliance Infrastructure - Roads & Defence Businesses said, “A company wants that their talent is retained. Their talent is ready to take the future steps and the employee wants his employability to be there. So when we go and say okay I want to train you or redeploy or reskill you the employee is looking at does it aligns to my career choices.“
