Case Study: Novartis IndiaHow talent data helpedNovartis choose a strategiclocation for its new office.For months, Novartis debated internally whetherits new India office should be in Mumbai orBangalore, as each city had strategic appeal.By leveraging insights from LinkedIn, therecruiting team was able to compare eachcity’s talent pool on factors such as mobilityand employers.Career level was also a key point of comparison,as Novatis successfully recruits most employeesat mid-career. In the talent report, Mumbai wasthe clear winner over Bangalore with its muchlarger population of mid-career talent.Once the data was shared with all stakeholders,it only took three weeks to reach consensuson Mumbai.16T H E I M PA C TFaster decision-makingTime is money, and like most companiesNovartis is constantly trying to move faster.So to rely solely on its ATS and application flowto choose an office location would not havebeen practical, and would have taken toolong. The talent pool reports acceleratedthe company’s ability to get alignment andtake action.Access to passive talentThe report also exposed Novartis to new poolsof talent. To meet its demand for clinical talent,for example, the team had to look beyondpharma. Talent pool reports highlight the bestalternate industries and companies to target,such as healthcare or insurance.We knew Mumbai had agood population and Bangalorehad a good population, butwithout more insight into theirdifferences in talent, it washard to make a decision. Butonce the data came in, it wasrather easy.Priyanka ThatoiAssistant ManagerLeadership & Campus HiringNovartisAbility to educate the businessNovartis has an internal team that does talentmapping, but to get a very detailed view ofthe full picture, the third-party data helps.Especially when the hiring team is fromdifferent parts of the world, it’s a good wayto communicate the local landscape.LINKEDIN EMERGING JOBS REPORTINDIA


As the blurring and meldingof specialist roles picks up pace,the key to attracting the bestpeople will be to focus ona recruit’s skills rather thantheir previous job titles.As one leading Data Scientist told LinkedIn, hisjob title didn’t exist when he was at universityless than five years ago. People in his area ofexpertise were described as being into “analyticsor machine learning studies”.In these times of rapid change HR and talentacquisition, professionals need to keep itsimple. The emphasis should be on looking foremployees with transferable skills which enablethem to adapt to changing workforce demands.Is your company prepared to invest in furthertraining-in-house or external? Could your nextMachine Learning Engineer already be workingfor the firm as a Software Engineer?Career paths should be looked at in termsof skills the worker gained and how theydeveloped, instead of just noting a checklist ofjob titles. HR and TA would benefit from lookingfor aptitudes such as adaptability, resilience,and entrepreneurial skills.Will that young graduate from the best universitywith the right “cookie-cutter” CV actually add tothe workplace culture?Or will an existing employee, with the soft skill toengage with clients and understand their needs,be more suited to the role? Can they be taughtthe technical skills they need?18LINKEDIN EMERGING JOBS REPORTINDIA
