Mumbai: As they attempt to ringfence people in a rising industry where talent is becoming more competitive, electric car makers and businesses in related segments are probably going to provide excessive compensation hikes this year. Staffing organizations and industry officials stated that an average wage increase for employees is between twenty and twenty-five percent. It may increase to 50% for top achievers, high-potential workers, and individuals in specialized professions. Experienced talent is frequently hard to come by in the relatively young EV and allied industries, such as battery manufacturing, even as more businesses, both startups and established automakers, enter the market or increase their capacity in response to the government’s strong desire for greener, more environmentally friendly mobility.

Employers frequently have to spend on retraining staff members, and in order to keep them on board, they must give greater pay, raises, and promotions. According to Ciel HR Services, mid-level positions pay between INR 25–50 lakh, while senior roles pay between INR 60 lakh and INR 1.2 crore. According to Lohit Bhatia, president of workforce management at Quess Corp., “profiles in sunrise sectors like EV will command a salary premium and hike in the future that the IT industry paid to retain its employees in the past.”
“People in production and shopfloor, as well as research and development, will command a premium of up to 50%.” In order to retain personnel, Altigreen is emphasizing cross-functional exposure and professional progression prospects, according to Amitabh Saran, CEO of the electric three-wheeler startup. 

“We are rotating positions and have training programmes to retain talent,” he stated. According to MG Motor India’s senior director of HR, Yeshwinder Patial, the company employs 20% of its personnel in green occupations, a sector that is projected to develop significantly by 2030. “We saw a 10% increase in green hiring since last year,” he stated.

"Workforce Expected to Double"

Research and development, data analysis, assembly line and shop floor operations, and support skills like vendor management are among the most in-demand positions in EV companies. According to Patial of MG Motor, positions in sales, marketing, supply chain management, customer service, and regulatory compliance have all grown in importance and now demand specialized knowledge. Experts stated that in order to increase capacity and establish new facilities and R&D centers, component/battery manufacturers and associated businesses must maintain talent. “People with the skills in production, design and engineering, assembly line and shopfloor are the most sought after,” stated Aditya Narayan Mishra, chief executive of Ciel HR. “The EV workforce is seen doubling in 12-18 months.” 


According to industry analysts, the EV business has a variety of design issues because of its reliance on electrical components and the intricacy of its software. Design teams must have the right expertise because it is impossible to outsource the power electronics, software, and embedded systems that are essential to creating electric vehicles. Industry analysts stated that these difficulties require extensive technological knowhow as well as domain understanding.
