Hiring in IT grew unabated despite second wave: Suraj Moraje, Quess Corp

We are certainly in the last few weeks seeing that IT has been one area much spoken about. IT has grown unabated through wave two, but even other areas now are seeing hiring come back, said Suraj Moraje, MD & Group CEO, Quess Corp NSE -4.63 %. Edited excerpts:
What is the impact of the second wave on business and the hiring environment? How is it different from the last year in terms of the shock that came in because of the lockdown?
I think the second wave has been very different from the first wave. I think if you look at the impact of the wave on us as a corporate community it has been far more personal. For most people, we know somebody who was very ill or our friends, and unfortunately many more people passed away. And I think the response of corporate India has certainly been moderated by that.
The response of corporate India is also moderated by the fact that people still feel that they can make their annual targets and they still want to see growth this year. A lot of our customers still want to see growth this year and I think the experience of wave one by Q4 last year the economy was growing and how people who wanted to hire were struggling to find talent.
