In this new era, organisations are focusing on “agility” in its hiring process which is pivotal in building the organization of the future. Looking out for the right people and placing them at the right positions in the organisational hierarchies remain the number one priority for the employers. To maintain an appropriate gender ratio as well as a diverse and inclusive workforce, organisations are looking out for heterogeneous mix that would take them to the next level of innovations.
Emerging technologies like industrial big Data Mining, Robotics, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence have also impacted hiring trends. Recruiters have moved on to adopting more technologically savvy solutions for hiring. TimesJobs interviewed Abraham Joseph, VP-Global People Function, Aequs Aerospace to get know the hiring trends and projections for 2018. Here what he said:
How has hiring been in your industry in past six months? With the rapid rise for aircraft and components, the Indian aerospace industry is catapulting into a global arena. Although Indian companies have experienced layoffs and a sluggish market due to slow GDP growth, demonetisation, shrinking private investments etc. in 2017, fortunately 2018 is turning out to be a promising year for job seekers. With international players setting up shop in the country, there is a robust demand of talent. I believe that aerospace and defence manufacturing has the potential to become the next sunrise sector in the Indian economy and create vast employment opportunities.
