New Delhi: The year 2014 will see an increase in hiring activity according to a survey conducted by ‘Naukri Hiring Outlook’. The survey was conducted amongst 800 plus recruiters. Approximately 64 per cent of the recruiters who were surveyed indicated the creation of new jobs this year. This represents a more positive outlook in comparison to July 2013 when only 54 per cent recruiters signaled the creation of new jobs.
In contrast, replacement hiring is likely to contribute less to the overall hiring with only 30 per cent recruiters expected to engage in it in 2014 versus 54 per cent recruiters who anticipated the need for replacement hiring in second half of 2013. Layoffs too, are also expected to decrease with only two per cent recruiters anticipating them in first half of 2014 as compared to five per cent recruiters who suspected layoffs in the second half of 2013.
