The interesting trend in IT industry is the increased demand for Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO). This model is used frequently in situations where mass hiring needs to be performed and the entire hiring process is outsourced.
There are various reasons why the industry is upbeat about hiring:
- The industry is expecting stable governance in the near future and has more confidence in expanding business plans.
- Global business trends have invigorated the Indian companies as well leading to fresh recruitment.
- The central Government has initiated new measures and moves to improve the level of business activities.
- NASSCOM is actively working to prepare non-metro cities as IT and BPO hubs leading to massive demand for manpower.
