We spoke to a fellow of World HR Board, Shreerang Tarte, to get a deeper sense of how organizations are getting impacted. He shared tips on the best way forward and laid out steps that can be taken to ensure your people function is engaged, well-supported, and productive. Shreerang has proven experience in designing Talent Acquisition strategies, establishing industry-university connect programs, designing organization structure, compensation, and employee engagement strategies. An active speaker at various HR forums, Shreerang has also served as the President of South Asian HR Summit.
Just a decade earlier, storing and maintaining data was a nightmare: there weren’t enough processes, inadequate infrastructure, and the lack of technological know-how to create that data into valuable information. However, with rapid technological advancements, we now live in a data rich environment. Around 2.5 quintillion bytes of data is generated and processed every day. Even the AI/ML algorithms have matured slowly to process this data. Therefore, it only seems fitting that data science is a job that has observed a high demand in the market lately.

And it’s no secret that the best managers not only develop but keep employees.
