Organisations across the board are advocating the need for their workforce to mirror their consumers (build organisations with equal representation of men and women as well as other forms of diversity), but the big challenge is to find employable women talent. According to a recent World Economic Forum report, India has dropped 28 places and ranks 140th among the 156 companies in terms of female participation in the workforce. While the pandemic has forced more women to exit the workforce due to family compulsions, those who want to get back aren’t skilled for many of the new-age job opportunities.

However, the recent Wheebox India Skills Report gives a ray of hope. According to the report, the percentage of employable women has gone up from 41.25% in 2021 to 53.28%. And, in 2023, it is expected to stay stable at 52.80%. In fact, the rate of employable women has been consistently higher than employable men. The overall employability rate for men went up from 34.26% in 2021 to 47.28% in 2022.

In India, the overall young employability has improved to 50.03% over the previous year. The age range with the highest employability was found to be between 22 and 25 years old, with 59.7% of the resources across top 10 cities in this age range being found highly employable.
