If strict restrictions are not imposed on businesses, the intent to hire can surge up to 9 percentage points during the current quarter (January-March, 2022), according to the latest ‘Employment Outlook Report’ for January-March 2022 from TeamLease.
Of the 21 sectors reviewed, seven are projected to record a growth of over 10 percentage points in their intent to hire, the report said.
The outlook, however, needs to be seen in the context of looming risk from a resurgent Omicron variant, the report noted.
With 89 per cent of corporates (+20 per cent point over October-December, 2021) expressing interest to hire, the information technology sector tops the charts.
