New Delhi: Employers in India are bullish about their hiring outlook for the first half of this year, with 55 per cent of recruiters anticipating new jobs as well as replacement hiring to happen during the six-month period, a survey said on Tuesday.

The bi-annual survey, ‘Naukri Hiring Outlook JanuaryJune 2020’, that saw participation from over 2,400 recruiters across the country, projected an overall positive outlook.

Around 55 per cent recruiters anticipate new jobs as well as replacement hiring to happen in the first half of the year while 26 per cent predict only new jobs and 13 per cent expect to do replacement hiring only, the survey noted.

Of those surveyed, 3 per cent indicated a scenario of “no hiring” at all while only 1 per cent of the total recruiters anticipated layoffs.

“Analytics emerges as one of the functional areas where 14 per cent recruiters indicate hiring apart from popular roles in IT, Sales and Marketing and Operations,” Pawan Goyal, Chief Business Officer, said.

Most of the hiring will be under five years of experience, as 62 per cent of recruiters will be hiring in the band of 3-5 years, while 51 per cent in the 1-3 years band, the survey said.

Around 30 per cent of recruiters indicated that hiring will happen for the experience band of 8-12 years, while 18 per cent said they will be recruiting for experience levels of over 12 years.
