Due to the festive season, the demand for blue collared workforce increased and hiring is projected to surge by 7 million jobs by the year-end.

The hiring scenario seems progressive as jobs for both blue-collar workers and white-collar workforce are growing rapidly. All in all, hiring surged in the past two quarters of 2022 and this trend is expected to sustain its pace even in the year’s last quarter as well.”
Sharing his thoughts on the recession’s impact, he said, “A mild recession might hit India next year and is expected to impact the white-collar workforce. However, we are hopeful that just like the pandemic, we will be able to sail through this roadblock as well.”
