HYDERABAD: Nasscom’s IT-ITeS sector Skills Council (SSC), in association with TalentSprint, on Thursday launched -- Talent Acquisition Professionals Forum (TAP) -- a nationwide programme for talent acquisition in software sector.

Currently, there are over 30,000 talent acquisition professionals. A recent study revealed that recruiting is the most important human resources function when it comes to return on investment and companies that excel in recruiting experience have 3.5 times more revenue growth than their less-capable peers.

“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 strategically aligned and contribute significantly to organizational productivity,” said Santanu Paul, MD & CEO, TalentSprint.

Launching TAP here, Dr BVR Mohan Reddy, chairman, Nasscom, urged the industry to adopt the SSC recommendation for 10 per cent of their total recruitment this year.

According to Sandhya Chintala, executive director, SSC Nasscom & vice president, Nasscom, 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,” she said.
