The report by Quess Corp shares that new-age digital skills like Data Analytics, Java, Cloud, Full Stack, and UI/UX are in high demand in India as organisations work on fighting attrition. As per the survey, Hyderabad and Bangalore are among the top cities that lead in hiring demands while junior and entry-level hiring requirements are increasing with companies looking to optimise costs.
The Indian tech industry clocked double-digit growth across sub-sectors adding $30 billion in revenues and nearly 450,000 jobs in FY 2022, as reported by NASSCOM.
Though attrition is a major concern, India’s digital infrastructure has played a major key role in driving the country’s tech adoption, which has led to talents taking interest in learning new-age digital skills.
Some important points from the survey:
- Data Analytics, Java Technologies, Cloud Infra Technologies, Full Stack Technologies, and UI & UX are the top five digital skills in demand.
- Data Analytics has the highest demand in Bengaluru (40%), and Hyderabad (30%) while Java has observed a spike in demand in Pune (40%) and Bengaluru (25%).
- Products (22%), Automotive & Engineering (11%), BFSI (11%), Telecom (11%), and Consulting (9%) are the sectors in demand for talent.
- Upskilling continues to be the need of the hour given the emergence of present-day tech assets such as the metaverse and Web 3.0.
Vijay Sivaram, CEO, Quess IT Staffing commented, “While there are seeming headwinds in the tech hiring market, certain skills continue to be high in demand such as Full Stack roles and Data Analytics roles. As organisations continue in their digital and cloud transformation journeys, we are witnessing a hiring uptick in the same. Startup hiring is in moderation, however, on the other hand, India continues to see growth in captives, particularly in tech & R&D.”
