Hiring activity remains stable in March: Naukri

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. Hiring activity is beginning to look up beyond sectors like IT. However, for hiring to pick up substantially we will have to wait for uncertainty around the elections to clear a bit,” Hitesh Oberoi, Managing Director and CEO, Info Edge (India) Ltd, the company that owns Naukri.com, said.
