There are 6 significant recruiting trends in India:

i. Hiring remains healthy: Despite global macroeconomic trends, hiring in India is relatively strong. Over 50 percent say hiring volume is up from 2011; another 22 percent are hiring at same rate. Budgets appear to be trending in line with hiring volume growth.


ii. The competitive heat is on: Competition and compensation are cited as the biggest obstacles to hiring top talent; respondents are most worried their competitors will invest in employer branding, improve referral programs, and invest in new recruiting tools.


iii. Passive talent and pipelining remain popular: Most recruiters believe in the importance of passive and in the practice pipeline talent. About 65 percent of recruiters focus on passive talent and about 87 percent of the recruiters are engaged in pipeline talent.

And 90 percent are either increasing or maintaining employer brand investment. India is ahead of the curve when it comes to regularly measuring employer brand. 50 percent of all India-based corporate recruiting leaders measure their employer brand as compared to a global average of just 33 percent.

vi. Room to improve data-driven decision making: While India appears ahead of most other countries, there is still room to improve data-driven decision-making.
