According to the TimesJobs’ RecruiteX data, Jaipur, Chandigarh, Nashik, Lucknow and Ahmedabad are the major tier II & III cities that have featured in the list of the top ten hiring locations for the last one-year. These cities have witnessed a considerable 2-5 per cent increase in hiring in the past four months alone, the survey adds.
“All factors seem to be working in favor of more jobs in smaller cities – crowded metros and high costs of infrastructure & living are driving companies to look at tier II & III for their availability of workforce at lower cost; Proactive governance, favorable policies, infrastructural development and investor friendly initiatives are further boosting prospects in these cities.” says Vivek Madhukar, COO, TimesJobs.com
According to the survey, “At a time, when PM Modi’s ‘Make in India’ initiative is emphasizing that the nation’s growth lies in semi-urban and rural segments, organizations are considering moving to these ‘job hubs of the future’.” TimesJobs.com survey also takes a look at the scope and potential of some of the key locations, which are giving the big metro centers a run for their money.
