No job hopping for now, say 47% of Indian employees:  report

New Delhi: Amidst reports of layoffs in a bleak-looking job market, especially in the IT sector, majority of employees in India (47 per cent) are found to be preferring to stay on where they are, as per a report on Monday.

The report says that only 53 per cent of the employers did hiring during the January-March period, down from 64 per cent in the previous quarter (October to December 2022), according to job portal Indeed. Overall, hiring has slowed down.

"Amid the ongoing uncertainties, the overall sentiment of jobseekers and employers seems to be cautious. However, some sectors like BFSI and healthcare are witnessing significant hiring, showcasing a strong future for these areas," said Sashi Kumar, Head of Sales, Indeed India.

Additionally, in 2023, the acceptance of the gig economy at large is also expected to strengthen the job market.

"Employers now need to focus on devising ways in which they can retain and continue to attract this talent pool," Kumar added.

Over 37 per cent of all jobseekers are looking to prioritise their career growth in 2023.

The BFSI sector in India witnessed the most significant hiring with 71 per cent of the sector's employers hiring during the quarter.

Healthcare (64 per cent) and construction and real estate (57 per cent) were the other two sectors that hired substantially.

In contrast, media and entertainment (49 per cent), IT/ITeS (29 per cent), and manufacturing (39 per cent) sectors saw the least hiring during the quarter.

The findings showed that working from office emerged as the favoured work mode for current jobseekers, with 57 per cent preferring to work from office.

The most in-demand job role for the March quarter was for retail sales associate (41 per cent of all employers) followed by project engineer (23 per cent) and marketing analyst (20 per cent), the report mentioned.
