“Recruitment is evolving from an unstructured and fragmented ecosystem to global established players coming into India and adopting new norms of productivity and efficiency”.
Franchising in India is estimated to be worth $22 billion (about Rs. 1. 2 lakh crore) and is growing at 30% annually, according to data from FICCI & CII & FAI . The franchising industry is doing extremely well in India. Franchises are related to all fast growing businesses today, especially in the sector of consumer goods and services. There are numerous types of investment opportunities available for every kind of investor. Antal International Network offers one such opportunity in the recruitment sector
The recruitment industry in India is growing at a fast pace and is approximately worth Rs. 28,000 crore, growing at around 22% per year. The core reason for this is the buzzing job market: currently most sectors are looking to hire and are dependent on niche recruiters who can source the best talents and bring them onboard. Specialist recruiters help corporates manage 25 – 30% of their hiring needs. There is high demand for specialized recruitment businesses as business owners and their team of recruiters can help employer’s source outstanding candidates from the global talent pool.
The growth of the Indian economy is projected to accelerate to 7.4% in the current fiscal compared with 6.9% last year based on a new way of calculating gross domestic product (GDP).Businesses across all sectors are expected to grow. In addition, India enjoys the competitive advantage of demographic dividend, which would together with the hiring intensity, mark a new era of recruitment in the country.
“India is definitely the country of future” says Paul Krugman
65% Of Indian CXOs believe that overall staffing levels are increasing, according to a Sept 2014 LinkedIn Economic Confidence Outlook study. The C-suite is in touch with the talent pulse of their companies.
This year, Indian companies are going to create a plethora of opportunities for job seekers. In the new jobs arena, there could be an average increase of about 14.5 percent—according to India Skills Report (ISR) 2016, conducted by several headhunter firms unanimously.
Matchmaking would be the buzzword: With an outlook on changing needs in year 2015 and characterizing manpower as key to business growth, the growing job opportunities and a reservoir of available talent pool, hiring would not be only about sourcing, interviewing candidates, and getting the vacancy filled. Instead, it would be increasingly about matchmaking the requirements of a job role to a candidate’s capability and Antal International specializes in this kind of recruitment since the 1990’s.
