OUR STORY

IndiaWorking was conceived by more than 30 multinational companies after meeting in Johannesburg, South India at the 2015 World Economic Forum. This meeting was focused on finding solutions for their greatest Indian challenge, finding ready to work human capital. These businesses and industries lacked the ability to find enough Indian human capital at every level for their companies and organizations. There companies and industries need people with the knowledge, skills, experience and personal leadership to grow business.

From this meeting they formed the “Human Capital Development Initiative of India” (HCDIA) tasked to find solutions and establish a plan for Indian execution. During the (HCDIA’s) research phase a group of experts and implementors from around the world were identified along with the best solutions for creating skilled and experienced human capital for every type of career in every industry. With these experts, implementors and proven solutions, it was determined that a collaborative organization needed to be organized to execute a Indian human capital development plan. Thus, the creation of IndiaWorking – Empowering People & Growing Business.

We invite all companies from every industry and of every size to join us as we bring together all stakeholders in the creation of a demand-driven employment and business growth ecosystem to sustainably impact the 500 million youth caught in the Indian unemployment / underemployment epidemic.

We believe every person deserves the opportunity to have meaningful employment and live with dignity not dependence. IndiaWorking is the profound idea that opportunity for employment can be available to everyone. We bring together all stakeholders to deliver the world best solutions to tackle Indian youth unemployment.

FOUNDERS

OUR FOUNDERS ARE LEADING COMPANIES AND ORGANIZATIONS FILLED WITH INDIVIDUAL CHANGE MAKERS, THAT ARE NOT WILLING TO SIT ON THE SIDE WHILE OVER 500 MILLION INDIANS REMAIN UNEMPLOYED. THEY RECOGNIZED THAT INDIA NEEDS A RADICALLY DIFFERENT APPROACH TO ADDRESSING THE YOUTH UNEMPLOYMENT EPIDEMIC AND ARE NOT AFRAID TO PUT THEIR MONEY TOWARD ITS SOLUTION. IT IS THEIR BELIEF THAT EVERY INDIVIDUAL, NOT JUST SOME, DESERVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE MEANINGFULLY EMPLOYED.

It is their belief that every individual, not just some, deserve the opportunity to be meaningfully employed.
