Comprehensive overview about the mechanics of hiring, job growth, salaries and their drivers, for the period October’17 to March’18. The net employment outlook for the coming six months (Oct'17- March’18) will see an incremental increase of 2 percentage point. The positivity in the outlook is attributed to the increase in government spending and the stable hiring growth exhibited by few of the sectors and cities. Around six of the eighteen sectors surveyed have indicated positive hiring sentiments. Though the gains are mostly incremental the overall sentiment is positive. Talent in Financial Services will be the biggest gainer of this upbeat mood. The financial services industry alone is expected to see a 3 point rise in employment outlook. In fact, the RBI’s thrust on increasing banking penetration and its decision to give more licenses to private sector players is expected to boost the sector significantly. Further, GST is expected to improve state finances by the Reserve Bank of India and, thereby, bolster bank finances. The other key sectors that will also experience positive hiring intent are Knowledge Process Outsourcing and Health & Pharmaceuticals. While the sentiment in the Knowledge Process Outsourcing sector is not as high as Financial Services, the sector tops the list with regard to job creation. The sector will experience a 14.16% growth in jobs. With a 7 and 4 percentage point drop the laggards in the coming half year are construction & real estate, Agriculture & Agro Chemical and Travel & hospitality respectively.



  • A momentary respite for the job market as the Net Employment Outlook looks up incrementally (+2 points) following the previous HY's downtrend.
  • The minor recovery is thanks to the hiring sentiment for senior roles (+4), Blue Collar (+4) and Engineering profiles (+3), and large businesses (+2) looking to hire in Metro and Tier-1 cities (+2). The gains are mostly incremental and, while the overall sentiment is positive, the outlook remains subdued across most of the sectors and geographies
  • Likewise, Mumbai and Hyderabad's 3 point lead is significantly diminished by Pune (-4), Chennai (-4), Bangalore (-2) and Kolkata (-1).
  • Hiring sentiment continues to be positive among large businesses (+2), while small businesses remain pessimistic (-5).  The medium sized are slowly getting back on their feet (-2).
  • The silver lining is a clutch of clusters that show promise for the HY
    • KPO hiring in Bangalore (+5), Mumbai (+4) and Hyderabad (+4)
    • Ecommerce/Tech Startups hiring in Hyderabad (+6), Chennai (+5), Bangalore (+4), Delhi (+4) and Ahmedabad (+4)
    • Financial Services in Mumbai and Ahmedabad (+4 each)
    • Power & Energy in Ahmedabad (+5) and Mumbai (+4) and
    • Healthcare & Pharmaceuticals in Pune (+4)
  • Three of the seven Functional Areas – Engineering (+3), Blue Collar (+3) and Office Services(+2) – are sought after by employers. Marketing (-4) and Human Resources (-3) are associated with negative sentiment.
  • Manufacturing makes a smart recovery, although hiring sentiment in the sector remains slightly negative (-2, up from -5 during the previous HY). The pall of gloom projected in public discourse seems to be based more on hearsay than on hard facts.
  • Financial Services (+3) and KPO (+2) lead the gains with less than substantial sentiment growth. Construction & Real Estate (-7), Agriculture & Agrochemicals (-4) and Travel & Hospitality (-4) are looking bleak.

MOOC in Apprenticeship For Employability & Employment

The MOOC in Apprenticeship report delves into the two most impetuous forces of doing and learning – Apprenticeships and MOOC – and attempts to unravel the ensuing benefits of employability and productivity for businesses. It does so with along with the help of an analytical toolset comprising of an Apprenticeship Index and an Employability Index.

Learning-by-doing and learning-while-earning. Doctrines that we, as a nation, paid scant regard to are coming home to roost. Over the past 25 years as India transformed itself and hurtled through a series of events and opportunities – economic reforms, the IT and ITeS revolution, the financial crisis, demographic dividend and, now, the knowledge economy – we have come to pause and stare at jobless growth. This, even as 13 million new entrants throng the workforce every year.
