Talent Challenges

Amidst the major challenges faced by the industry are threats from piracy and violation of intellectual property rights, lack of quality content, and lack of cohesive production and distribution infrastructure. In a bid to constantly think of new and innovative ways to keep themselves ahead of their competitors, companies are increasingly focusing on their quality of talent. However, the sector continues to reel under challenges of paucity and mismanagement of talent and lack of standardisation across levels with regards to salaries and designations. The demand supply gap particularly with regards to "right" creative content talent is another chronic trend.
