Saumya Bhattacharya

1 Senior Editor Economic Times

I lead the Careers and HR vertical in The Economic Times that reports on the gamut of the workplace: jobs market, people practices, salaries, diversity, boards, corporate governance, and millennials among others. I started writing about workplaces in 2007. It has been a fascinating journey to report the trends about how corporate India works. From the advent of crore-plus salaries to the war for talent in campuses; from capturing the complex demography and diversity at work, to now reporting on how technology is disrupting the workplace, there's never a dull moment in this beat. For my work, I have been twice awarded the Ramnath Goenka Award for Excellence in Journalism. Twitter: @saumyabET | Email: saumya.bhattacharya@timesgroup.com

The good news on jobs no one's talking about

Forget the political slugfest on jobs. At both ends of the labour market — from CXOs to blue collar — job-creation prospects are strong across most sectors, say a number of HR consultants we spoke with. The exceptions: telecom, pharma, and life sciences.
