The demand for WFH was always high, but many employers were reluctant to extend this option to the employees, leading to a low supply of such jobs, say industry executives.
Amid the ongoing challenges where people are unable to commute to work, India’s largest job search portal Naukri.com has seen a two-fold rise in WFH jobs postings by recruiters.
“WFH jobs have gone up by 2x in the third week of April as compared to the first week of March’20. WFH jobs as a jobseeker search keyword ranked number 2 on our platform in the third week of April as compared to the first week of March’20 when it was at rank 33,” said Pawan Goyal, chief business officer, Naukri.com.
