An annual salary survey conducted by Teamlease, a staffing firm, suggests that salaries for temporary jobs are fast catching up with that of permanent ones as more organizations look to hire temporary staff. Sectors including banking, financial services and insurance have been traditional recruiters of temporary staff in their sales force but now FMCG, retail, telecom and IT industries have also started looking at getting temporary employees on board. The average salary difference between temporary and permanent jobs, across the top 10 temp jobs in the 0-3 years work experience, has narrowed down to 4 percent. The survey conducted among junior-to-mid level employees said the healthcare sector will see the highest growth in salaries at an average of 19 percent across profiles and cities.
The survey findings are based on salaries between December 2009 and June 2011 across 65,000 associates employed in the organized job market in the junior-to-mid-level profiles.
