The quarterly TeamLease Employment Outlook Report is a forward looking tool for human resource policy and decision makers, reflecting business sentiment for hiring across cities and sectors. The report carries a snapshot of business hiring sentiment for the immediate next three months with survey and analysis being carried out in the preceding quarter.

The Employment Outlook Survey spans eight industry sectors and eight cities across India. The survey covers small, medium and large companies across these sectors, studies attrition and employment trends, and gleans information on hiring sentiments, all this covering different locations, hierarchical levels and functional areas.

This edition of the Employment Outlook Report reports on a subtle and steady drop in sentiment across many cities and sectors that has occurred over the past 12 months, grabbing most onlookers unaware. We attempt a visualization of this phenomenon with some not-so-convenient truths for all of us to digest.

With the most critical drivers that influence hiring being tracked quarter on quarter, the Employment Outlook Report is the only one of its kind seeking to deliver high impact hiring decision support to its stakeholders – Business & HR heads, Senior Management as well as industry policy makers.
