The IT services industry hired around 81,000 people in the last two months of 2020, according to hiring agencies. The hiring came on the back of high demand from tech service companies and global firms.
There was a 10 per cent increase in hiring by technology service companies, captive centres and business process management (BPM) companies in December alone as compared to the year-ago period, according to IT-BPM recruitment research firm Han Digital. In 2019, the industry hired 75,000 people in November-December.
Saran Balasundaram, founder and chief executive officer of Han Digital told The Economic Times that usually IT-BPM sector’s onboarding number is relatively lesser in December but in 2020 December onboarding was 10 per cent higher while November numbers were almost equal to the previous year.
