The Latest Trend In Staffing Companies

By: YOMA Multinational
GURGAON, India - June 25, 2021 - PRLog -- Employers and the working population alike had a difficult time navigating the year 2020. The pandemic has caused irreversible changes, and the pandemic-accelerated trends are likely to reshape the labor market in the long run. COVID-19 has had a huge impact on work, the workforce, and the workplace, and it will continue to do so even after the current health crisis is over.

Let's take a look at some of the major trends in Indian staffing in 2021.

The Transition from Full-Time to Part-Time Employees

Any macroeconomic downturn, such as COVID-19, always encourages companies to turn to Contracting Business or Staff Augmentation, including offshoring – a trend that was also observed during the 2008 financial recession. Today, we are seeing increased demand for Contract Staffing across industries such as BFSI, IT, ITeS, Telecom, Infrastructure, Engineering, Pharma, E-commerce, and Logistics.

The Gig Economy

We are seeing an increase in gig platforms as a result of the rise of start-up culture and the growing demand for a contractual workforce among MNCs. Outcome-based work delivery platforms are becoming more popular in industries such as eCommerce, Field Sales, Marketing, Telecom, Human Resources, Hospitality, Tourism, Supply Chain/Logistics, and even IT for roles such as Content Design, Web and App Development, IT Recruitment, and so on.

IT Talent Supply and Demand

More than 75% of IT skills in demand in 2021 will be for niche skills, particularly in Cloud, Artificial Intelligence or Machine Learning, Cyber Security, Big Data, Full-Stack/UI/UX, and ERP upgrades. Artificial intelligence, also known as machine learning, is one of the most in-demand skills today. Python is in high demand because it is the quickest and most versatile programming language.

HR Technology Adoption is a Priority Across Industries

COVID-19 increased the adoption of HR technologies by 30 to 40%, compared to the previous three years' slow growth rate. People processes have become more efficient and centralized as a result of HR technology tools.

Upskilling/Reskilling is becoming increasingly important.

Finally, there is a growing need for blue/grey collar workers to be upskilled/reskilled as disruptive technologies and changing market trends threaten their employability. Workers are expected to learn new skills and keep up to date on the latest automation that are changing their jobs.

Increased Emphasis on Employee Experience

HR leaders are being pushed to plan the entire employee journey so that they are prepared to face the new challenges that a distributed remote work model will bring. Jobseekers, from entry-level to senior executives, have become picky about the companies for which they work. In the new normal, the HR department is responsible for ensuring adequate team enablement and engagement.
