Recovering from the economic slump caused by the pandemic, hiring trends saw an improvement in August. The previous month saw a 26% on-year increase in hiring activity to 2.78 lakh. Although the numbers are a tad bit shy of where they were in July, experts say the trend remains positive brushing away any concerns. The year-on-year comparison of August is impressive as the same month last year was marked as a recovery month. According to jobs portal, Indeed.com, hiring activity is at pre-pandemic levels of February 2020, with jobs getting created in sectors that are doing well post the reopening of the economy.
