PeopleMatters Survey on Hiring Channels

  Print media has lost its popularity as a preferred hiring channel and there is a heavy reliance on job portals who account for a majority of the overall hiring among Indian organisations, a survey says. According to a People Matters-CareerBuilder survey, among the channels used by Indian recruiting organisations, 82 per cent of Indian employers prefer Job portals as their preferred hiring channel. The survey further noted that Indian organisations still rely very less on social communities as less than 20 per cent of organisations rely heavily on social media hiring. The preferred social media channels that are used for hiring are LinkedIn and Facebook.

Two of three Indian Job Seekers Unqualified

Two of three Indian Job Seekers Unqualified

While the vast talent pool in the country may be lamenting about the lack of job opportunities, two out of three job seekers do not meet the job provider’s requirements and hence are not considered fit for the jobs available, suggests a joint study by CII, PeopleStrong, and Wheebox. Portraying a somewhat gloomy picture, when it comes to hiring scenario, the report christened as India Skills Report, suggested that the coming year would not see bullish hiring in any of the sectors. Out of about 10 sectors surveyed, majority of the sectors like BFSI, BPO/ITES, Manufacturing etc, are not expected to see a major change in their hiring numbers. Engineering & Core, hospitality and travel, came out as the only sectors, where there will be a significant increase in the hiring numbers.

PeopleStrong Compiles India Skills Report 2014

PeopleStrong Compiles India Skills Report 2014

  India's employment outlook next year remains bleak, although the skill levels have improved among new entrants to the job market, according to the findings of a new survey. Only a slight increase of about 1.4% in overall hiring numbers was predicted by the India Skills Report 2014 compiled by PeopleStrong, a human resource company, and skill assessment firm Wheebox that conducted the survey in association with the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII). The report said the outlook for jobs is far from bullish in the year ahead. While sectors such as engineering, hospitality and travel expect their hiring to rise, those like banking, financial services and insurance, information technology (IT) and IT-enabled services, and manufacturing are not expecting a major increase.
