India – Staffing firms expect 10-15% jump in temp hiring for festive season (Economic Times)

13 August 2019

Staffing firms in India are predicting a 10-15% increase in temp hiring this festive season, reports the Economic Times, citing hiring data from firms like Quess, TeamLease Services, Manpower, Kelly Services and CIEL HR Services. Temp staffing firms said ecommerce firms led by Flipkart and Amazon will be frontrunners in hiring. Higher demand is expected for temp staff in customer service, logistics and sales. Consumer durables and retail sectors, too, have upped hiring along with the banking, financial services and insurance sector. Rituparna Chakraborty, Co-Founder, TeamLease Services, commented, “There is higher demand for people in customer services, logistics and sales. Undergraduates/graduates with good communication skills are very employable in sales jobs, delivery and food tech.”  The demand for temporary staff typically begins from the Onam festival in Kerala (early September) and lasts up to New Year’s Eve.
