New Delhi: A delegation from ManpowerGroup, global work force solutions provider, attended the 49th World Employment Conference 2016 in New Delhi.  Hosted by the Indian Staffing Federation and Ciett, the global industry body, 300 delegates from more than 30 countries gathered to share insights on the structural and cyclical forces impacting labor markets around the world, including talent shortages and the impact of technology and automation. The three day conference ended on 27th May 206.

AG Rao, ManpowerGroup Managing Director in India, participated in a panel discussion on ‘Creating Work – How to set the scene for tomorrow?’ He joins ManpowerGroup’s VP of External Affairs, Hans Leentjes, who will close the conference on 27th May 2016 in his capacity as Vice President of Ciett. Frits Scholte, ManpowerGroup VP Sales and Marketing Europe, and Lars Petter Orving, Managing Director, ManpowerGroup Northern Europe, also attended. Frits Scholte shared his expertise about the skills that are needed in the new era of employment as a panelist on 27th May 2016.

“This conference is a prime opportunity for the global employment community to come together and share insights on new ways of getting work done,” comments Leentjes. “Shifting demographics and the ongoing technological revolution continue to disrupt and we see widespread skills shortages around the world despite high unemployment. It’s crucial for us to work together to create enablers that ensure there’s a job for every person and a person for every job.”

Home to the world’s largest and youngest workforce, including 270 million skilled workers, India plays host to this year’s conference with aspirations to lift the lid on the future of work for the workforce of tomorrow. Coincidently, ManpowerGroup launched its global study of 19,000 Millennials from 25 countries, Millennial Careers: 2020 Vision, providing practical advice to help employers rethink their people practices for attracting, retaining and developing this generation of workers.

“As disruption to the labor market continues, we have a critical role to play in helping people –  particularly young people – access jobs and develop the in-demand skills that will make them employable in the long term,” said A G Rao, ManpowerGroup Managing Director, India. “This conference provides a valuable opportunity for the industry to come together and find ways to do exactly that.”
