Faced with a difficulty finding skilled employees, one of India`s leading outsourcing companies is going out to find prospective workers - on a bus. Firstsource Solutions Ltd`s orange-and-white recruitment bus has been touring Mumbai, India`s financial capital, over the last few days inviting potential workers to ÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â“Step in to step ahead.ÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â” While the bus may be a recruitment gimmick, it shows the lengths India`s outsourcing companies _ which have been leading India`s economic boom _ have to go as the industry grapples with a serious shortage of skilled labour. ÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â“The industry is facing a tremendous talent crunch. This innovation may expand the talent pool and take jobs to the job seekers,ÃƒÂ‚Ã‚Â” said Aashu Calapa, Executive Vice-President at Firstsource, which handles financial services for global banks, telecommunication and health care companies.
