Global in-house centres (GICs), or captive units, of most multinational firms are going ahead with their pre-Covid-19 hiring plans in India after a brief lull in the first few months of the pandemic, according to leading recruitment firms.
These companies are expected to hire as projected at the start of the year except for those in sectors like travel and hospitality which have been severely impacted by the pandemic. Some are even increasing headcount faster than their forecast initial estimates.
“Tech recruitment is on in full swing. There’s been no immediate impact of the (US) visa ban in terms of an increase in people from the US applying for jobs here, but that could be due the travel restrictions and the current work-from-home option,” said Joseph Devasia, managing director of recruitment firm Antal India.
