Auto cos look to pare EV HR costs by reskilling 

Automobile sales may be falling, but the demand for skilled professionals in the electric vehicles (EV) sector is rising. The likes of Tata MotorsNSE -1.91 %, Maruti SuzukiNSE -0.55 %, Mahindra & Mahindra and Continental India are feeling the pinch. 

These companies — gearing up to meet demand for EVs — are building a talent pool by aggressively reskilling existing workforce and by training fresh graduates. 

Only 30,000 EV experts are currently employed across companies in the sector, with recruitment and staffing firms Xpheno and TeamLease Services pegging the shortage at about 40%. “Many parallel projects that have kicked off at the same time have placed a sudden demand on this niche talent pool, leading to some unmet demand for good talent in the EV space,” said Shailesh Chandra, president, electric mobility business and corporate strategy, Tata Motors.

How HR heads are leading change

There’s very little that a chief human resources officer (CHRO) today would have in common with one who had the same job a decade ago. Back then, the head of the department needed to know the nuances of labour law and be an ace at managing ops. Today, it’s more the ability to plan for the future of work and align employees to growth that’s essential. Today’s CHRO is also more likely to be younger and a woman, though the scale still tips in favour of men.
