Problems faced by Top Blue Chip Companies

The top blue chip companies face different problems that are unique to their industry. For example, the pharmaceutical companies face a lot of problems with their documentation, especially in countries such as the US. Some of these companies also happen to be the leading recruiters in India and one major problem they face is that there are plenty of people with good grades but not the skills or capabilities needed to perform well even at the entry level jobs that these companies offer.

Contribution to Indian Economy

 Almost all the blue chip companies are the top most companies in their respective domains – something that attests to their immense adherence to a high standard of products and services over the years. However, more than that, their real value lies in the fact that they are integral parts of the service sector that is the biggest employer in India – at least in the urban areas. Another important aspect is that when anyone invests in any blue chip company in the stock market, there is stability of earnings and regular dividend payouts due to the sustained growth achieved by these companies.
