Packaging industries manpower issues may become a great hurdle in India’s slogan of “make in India”

India’s growing consumerism is taking its packaging sector through unprecedented technological break-through and rapid revenue benchmarks. As the globalization sets-in with its plethora of offerings, the young India is showing a rising inclination towards the more sophisticated and technologically improved lifestyle.

Be it a casual shopping from the market or an online order, safe, hygienic and convenient packaging of the items has gained increased importance in satisfying today’s consumer base. Packaging has come a long way from simple wrappers and carry bags to damage free, hygienic and dust-proof cartons that not only cater to the retail sector but to the manufacturer and wholesaler as a whole.

With packaging playing an essential role of the products sales, proper and suitable packaging has become a highly technical area of focus for the entire spectrum of products being sold out there in the global market.

Be it the export or the import market, packaging has grown from a mere mode of carrying convenience to an aspect of product’s overall aesthetics and a highly organized and technical sector contributing to over 7% of India’s infrastructural revenue earnings.

However, Packaging Industry in India is still fighting a tough battle in keeping up to the challenge of “Make in India” due to the cheaper and usually technologically advanced Chinese packaging items.

But it is surprising that this giant economy is facing the issue of challenging the in-house development of technologically improved and cheaper packaging techniques but a rather more significant issue of supply of adequate and skilled manpower.

As packaging sector is gaining momentum in recent times, the availability of adequately trained manpower has become an issue due to the lack of proper educational infrastructure in this field.

With many packing industries coming up, supply of manpower has become a crucial issue in running this business and it is here that the need manpower outsourcing firms is being felt vastly.

Manpower outsourcing due to their widespread reach and connectivity are able to tap these resources from various corners of the nation and maintain a demographic database of such workforce, ready and willing to be employed at different corners of this nation.

This not only gives these packaging players a respite from the regular and most often wearing in-house hiring process but also saves considerable amount of cost and time as such work force are available for interview with just one call to these outsourcing firms and the best part being the contractual hiring of this workforce that saves considerable amount of money in the long run.

SGK India, a dominant player in the field of outsourcing is coming up with highly specialized ways of meeting this challenge by sourcing the best talents from across every corner of the nation. With is merit already shining across various sectors, SGK india is for sure brining a sea change in India’s packaging sector manpower issue.

Inadequacy of skilled labour in roadways construction re-strengthens Manpower Firm’s importance.

As roadways continue be in the primary list of India’s Economic development plan, Roadways in India, post-Independence, have come a long from connecting a few major cities and towns to connecting to almost every corner of the nation at present.

Roadways in India are a major infrastructural project considering the fact that almost three fourth of our population and commercial trade depends on it. It is like the vein network of human body delivering vital nutrients to every part of the body to keep it health and growing.

It is surprising to know that India being a much smaller land mass compared to US still and China has the third largest roadway network in the world which speaks volumes of India’s mind set in simplifying and improving the transport system of this nation.

However this feat of excellence within such a small span post-Independence has not been so easy for this nation with multiple hindrances lying in its way to overcome. Apart from charting out the most viable roadway plan other issues like funding, approval of project, availability of skilled workforce and labour, transportation of construction material and equipment have been jerk-stopping India’s pace to build the greatest roadways network that world can ever see.

However, with India’s wide geographical diversity and demo graphical challenges the one major issue of primary concern to officials is the supply of adequately skilled manpower and labour force to complete this long awaited glorious mission of India.

Though, roadways in the more populated, stable and plain areas have been constructed with less of a pain for availability of skilled workforce and labour, places with geographical and demographic challenges have seen a comparatively slower development owing to lack adequately skilled workforce to complete the task in time.

Constructing roadways through mountains, valleys, rivers, oceans, creeks etc requires high degrees of experience, skill and motivation and human and machinery mishaps are a painfully accepted part of this task. Owing to varied risks associated with this job it most often becomes difficult to arrange the right mix of workforce to complete such tasks and an unexpected delay is caused.

Meticulous in-house planning’s and measures have been implemented to curb this rising manpower issue but these measures have not been sufficient and has rather led to an increase in the cost and unfruitful man-hour losses.

Now the role of Manpower outsourcing firms is emerging as a key solution to the rising manpower issue as such firms effectively manage the requirement of multiple workforce along with filling the key positions which are most often a tedious activity for the HR department. The most attractive benefit of hiring an outsourcing firm is continuous supply of skilled workforce along with a manpower replacement clause that adds to assurance of labour adequacy which helps in continuation and competition of the project in time considering other factors or issues are managed with equal importance.

SGK India, an emerging leader in the field of outsourcing services has buckled up with adequate insight and management experience to match the rising manpower expectation in this sector.


With many successful project accomplishment it has a proven track-record of meeting the expectation of labour supply and other outsourcing services management. With the increasing importance and rapid development of roadways SGK India is sure to become a prominent contributor in the roadways sector of this emerging global leader.
