The CrossConnect Forum is a platform for European and United Kingdom enterprise leaders to engage partners in the Americas to overcome increasingly intense operational pressures and sustain market leadership. This first-ever forum explored a new avenue of partnership-based innovation and examined new ways to re-think and re-design the core operating systems of today’s globally-focused organizations.
Rohitashwa Aggarwal, Partner, Global Sourcing, who joined a panel at the forum, discussed how the demand for tech and business services keeps expanding in the United Kingdom and other European markets. He suggests that in spite of this growth, talent availability remains a major problem for the region.
Rohitashwa Aggarwal, Partner at Everest Group, shared his insight in Cross Connect Forum and gave an overview of the business services sector.
“Globally, the industry has grown by leaps and bounds over the past 30 years, reaching US$300 billion. And even in 2023, with all the macroeconomic challenges, the series of layoffs that we are seeing, there is a huge demand for talent, technology, need to outsource more from a customer experience standpoint, from operations. The growth projection looks small compared to the last few years but if compared to the last decade, it stays on point,” said Rohitashwa.
Rohitashwa Aggarwal, Partner (Global Sourcing), Everest Group, will be a keynote power panel speaker for the Cross Connect Forum 2023: The Case for a Diverse and Flexible Global Workforce Strategy in London, England.

Hiring and retaining talent proved to be the biggest challenge for global services leaders during 2021-2022, impacting enterprises and service providers alike.

Three of the companies — Infosys, HCLTech, and L&T Technology Services — ended the December quarter with a higher net headcount, but the employee additions were at a slower rate than the previous quarters. Market leaders Tata Consultancy Services, Wipro, Tech Mahindra, and LTIMindtree all posted a fall in headcount.
“Though the demand-supply gap for talent is reducing, we expect the gap to continue in the range of 8-20% based on specific segments within tech services,” said Yugal Joshi, Partner at Everest Group.
The past few years have witnessed a huge talent crunch, leading to high wage inflation, attrition, and upward pressure on pricing. As we enter 2023, attrition has started to cool off, and there are indicators pointing to a likely economic slowdown.
