E-commerce and tech start-ups to dominate hiring in India


New Delhi, May 23, 2016: Increase in consumer spending and a renewed focus on market expansion will have a positive impact on hiring in India, according to a recent TeamLease Employment Outlook Report. The report says that hiring outlook has registered a four percentage point growth.

E-commerce and tech start-ups, the biggest contributors to net addition of jobs, will see a 23.6 per cent growth in jobs between April and September 2016. Six out of the nine sectors surveyed have expressed interest in hiring.

Fast-moving consumer goods, telecom and e-commerce and start-ups will be the biggest gainers during the period, while manufacturing and engineering and infrastructure seem to be bearing the brunt of negative sentiments created by the slow progress of the Make in India initiative.

On the functional front, sales, information technology and blue-collar profiles will benefit substantially from the net positive sentiment. The rush to acquire driving and delivery skills seems to be boosting blue-collar jobs tremendously. The profile will witness a nine percentage increase in demand.
