In the last decade, India has emerged as the fastest growing major economy and is expected to be the skill capital of the world over the next 2 to 5 years, backed by its young workforce. By 2020, the average age in India will be 29 years with 65% of the population in the working age group (15-59 years of age). While most of the developed countries experiencing an aging population, India’s burgeoning young workforce can be an asset not just for the country but for the rest of the world as well.

Employment landscape is changing swiftly, and new jobs are emerging with rapid disruption in the business models around the globe. Today’s job market and in-demand skills are hugely different from the ones of 10 or even 5 years ago and the pace of change is only set to accelerate. New jobs require new skills which either does not exist or the population is niche. Building a skilling system to match the new requirements, a system that responds well to business needs, while opening opportunities for all people is the need of the hour. Transforming the way employers invest in their workforce and use the skills of their employees can help meeting new skill requirements.

While the summit will address the needs for skill development in India, the Skill Achiever awards will honor and recognize organization in the private sector, PSUs, NGOs, government departments etc who have demonstrated their commitment to the advancement of skills by implementing skills development and training programs that are relevant and result oriented.
