This chapter examines employer attitudes in the formal sector in India. It presents the results from a qualitative pilot study based on a convenience sample of twenty-five human resources (HR) managers in large firms based in New Delhi, but with satellite offices, manufacturing plants, and retail outlets all over the country. The most striking finding in the interviews was the view, expressed in virtually every interview, that workers should be recruited strictly according to merit.
