Bengaluru: Three out of four organisations believe they can effectively hire employees remotely, says a survey by CareerNet Consulting.
The study, titled ‘The Hiring Outlook in India’ reveals that companies from e-commerce, IT/ITeS, services, science and technology and telecommunications sectors exhibit a higher readiness (82%) for virtual hiring.
The novel coronavirus outbreak has profoundly altered the traditional structure of businesses across sectors and now, companies are embracing remote hiring. The survey says that more than half of the employers have partially active hiring plans for the next three months. In Q3, it is expected to gradually open. Also, 18% of organisations have active hiring plans for Q2 which increases significantly to 25% in Q3. Meanwhile, 18% companies that said their hiring is completely paused for Q2 gets reduced to 8% in Q3.
