Commenting on the findings of TimesJobs RecruiteX Dec’21 edition, Sanjay Goyal, Business Head, TimesJobs and TechGig said, “Omicron has halted the global recovery from COVID-19. News reports suggest that about 30-35% of businesses had reopened offices in Dec’21 and were planning to get back to office in full swing by Mar’22. These stats are the same for India too. However, COVID-19’s resurgence has put a temporary stop to such plans. Healthcare and wellbeing is a top priority and I foresee this sector to be bullish on talent intake for some more months. A silver lining though is, most of us are already attuned to virtual working, hence there will be less hiccups in business continuity.”
