Countries having highest business potentials like India and China pronounce talent competition the most. The skill gap along with variation in economic densities makes the development of talent pipeline an important issue, forcing organizations to start recruiting from nemesis and reinforcing the ultimate vicious rounds of salary inflation and high turnovers.
