by Samir Ranjan Chatterjee
International Journal of Indian Culture and Business Management (IJICBM), Vol. 2, No. 3, 2009


Abstract: The ascending economic trajectory and unique demographic dividend of 540 million strong young population have presented an unprecedented human resource challenge for India. On the one hand, there is an emerging cadre of highly skilled, globally mobile workforce embracing 'western notions' there is a vast milieu of workforce very much wedded to the traditional concepts of human resource paradigms. This article provides a brief overview of the roots of human resource assumptions from a historical perspective and considers their relevance to the contemporary contexts of global competitiveness. A cross-verging conceptual model is considered in understanding the dynamics of embedded socio-cultural forces and the emerging global challenges. Implications and impact of the cross-vergence on new organisational values and practices are explored as the country gains increasing global attention.
