Hot and upcoming jobs

As per the report, while in FY202-21 only 5 out of the 17 sectors had created, close to 9 sectors had created Hot jobs in FY2021-22.

Payout trends across 8 functions

An in-depth research covering the jobs and payout trends across 8 functions, 2,63,000 temp profiles, 17 industries and 9 cities, as per the report while conservatism is the underlying theme, employers are not shying away from rewarding skills, especially niche skills. The salary hike for super specialized job roles range between 11 percent and 12 percent.

Cities that give top increments to employees

From a geographic perspective, amongst the cities the top paying (increments of 12 percent and above) are Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Pune.

As per the analysis, most of the sectors, have recovered from the COVID induced slump sectors. Majority, 10 out of the sectors analysed have indicated a progression rate of 7-10 percent and the rest are growing at a rate of 5-7 percent.

Salary de-growth, stagnation in job market nearing an end

Elaborating on the report, Rituparna Chakraborty, Co-Founder and Executive Vice President, TeamLease Services said, “While the increments are yet to reach the double digit hikes, it is heartening to see that the phase of salary de-growth and stagnation that have been hovering across the job market in the last two years is nearing its end. The revival coupled with the growing appetite for roles across profiles and sectors indicate that the modest approach will soon taper off and push the increments to reach the pre-covid level.”

It provides an overview of unified salaries across temporary and permanent profiles across markets.
