Hiring activity in the country remained stable in March this year over the previous month and saw 12 per cent increase over the same period last year, says a report by job portal Naukri.com. The Naukri Job Speak Index for March stood at 1,475, showing stability in hiring activity, when compared to the previous month. Yearly comparison shows a 12 per cent increase in hiring activity in March over the corresponding period last year, the report said. “The job market continues to improve steadily.
