In the past year, India’s employable talent has risen from 46.2 per cent to 50.3 per cent, which means that 50.3 per cent of people were found to be employable as compared to the last year’s data. This is according to the India Skills Report 2023 by global online talent assessment company Wheebox.
For the report, 3.75 lakh candidates or freshers were evaluated. They took the Wheebox National Employability Test (WNET) and as many as 150 corporations participated from over 15 different industries.
52.8% women employable v/s 47.2% men
The percentage of women who were found to be employable has increased to 52.8 per cent, compared to 47.2 per cent for men. ‘The consistent rise in women’s employability over the past ten years is a positive sign of radical changes in India’s developing labour market. Increased participation of women at work will give industries an edge with key roles already being occupied by women as we go into 2023,’ the report states, as per Mint.
