Continuing its growth trajectory on talent demand tally for the third consecutive month in Feb 2019, Travel & Hospitality sector posted highest talent demand as per the TimesJobs RecruiteX February 2019 report. This sector has witnessed an uptick in the talent demand since Dec 2018. In fact, among these three months, it posted the highest growth in talent demand in Jan 2019.
TimesJobs RecruiteX monthly hiring report cited that Travel & Hospitality saw a 13% Y-o-Y growth in Feb 2019, as compared to Feb 2018. While the overall Y-O-Y talent demand growth stood at 12%.
The functional area-wise analysis also revealed that Hospitality and related roles recorded 28% growth in Feb 2019 in comparison to Jan 2019. This comes as good news for India Inc., which is struggling on the employment generation front.
Ramathreya Krishnamurthi, Business Head, TimesJobs and TechGig, said, "Typically IT, Retail, BFSI and E-commerce are the big four employment generators in India. Most conversations about employment generation are focussed around these sectors. However, other sectors too are contributing to India’s economic growth. The Travel & Hospitality sector is a shining example here. This sector has been steadily hiring for the last three months and we hope that this growth story will continue in the coming months as well."
