India – IT sector will continue to hire for newer skills in areas of automation – Staffing Quote of the Week

Filed under: News |

In an interview with Moneycontrol, Francis Padamadan, Country Director of KellyOCG in India speaks about the hiring landscape in India, in particular the IT sector and the impact of automation.

“The IT sector will continue to hire for newer skills in the areas of automation, artificial intelligence, and newer technologies that come up. While there is talk of automation and digitisation that carries the view that it will take away a lot of jobs, upskilling is key,” Padamadan said. “One has to move ahead and adapt rather than be concerned about how automation will impact their jobs.”

He also emphasised that IT is still an important revenue generator. “As a recruitment and staffing company, IT continues to contribute a chunk of our revenues. On an average, 800,000 to 1,000,000 people change jobs every year in IT so that is a huge business opportunity for us.”

Padamadan also touched on the growth of the RPO market in India and said that KellyOCG is seeing greater traction for RPO in IT, financial services and pharmaceuticals verticals from large enterprises.
