Mettl Organizes 'The Breakfast Alchemy' to Discuss On-going HR Trends & Challenges

BENGALURU: In the recent times, getting suitable candidate on-board has been a major hurdle for most organisations in India and the world across. While talent acquisition itself is a very prominent challenge, retaining these talents and cutting-down attrition rates, especially in the IT domain, poses a major headache forHRs today.To discuss these hindrances and come up with effective solutions, Mettl, a pioneer talent assessment platform, organizeda multi-city event – ‘The Breakfast Alchemy’ in Bengaluru.

Held at The Ritz Carlton, this event was attended by top HR leaders from the IT sector and ‘From Coders to Leaders’ was the theme of discussion. Among those who attended the event, Dr. Christina Augustine (Global Business HR Head, Virtusa Polaris), Vimal Kakade (Global Director – People Supply Chain & Talent Transformation, Dell), Sanjay Kumar (VP – Capacity Building & Knowledge Management, ITC Infotech) and Pramod Sadarjoshi (Senior Director APAC – HCM Strategy& Transformation, Oracle) topped the list of HRs who gathered limelight.

Speaking on the occasion, KetanKapoor, Co-Founder & CEO, Mettl,quotes, “Shaping leaders from coders is easily identified as one of the biggest challenges in the Information Technology sector, and the Mettl powered Breakfast Alchemy, India’s most robust HR e-event, spotted a chance for a second gathering of HR leaders. Since Mettl is instrumental in identifying future leadership prowess at the recruitment stage through pre-employment assessments that predict the existence of a leadership gene in technical talent being hired, this event was a much required intervention for the HR community seeking answers to it”.

In an exclusive interview with siliconindia, Ketan also revealed that they are planning to host their next segment of ‘The Breakfast Alchemy’ in Mumbai. When questioned as to why emphasis only on the coders, Ketan responded saying that Bengaluru has a massive talent pool of coders which led their panellists to decide on this topic.
