MUMBAI: Delhi has emerged as the preferred state for hiring in telecom and allied sectors, according to a survey by human resource (HR) solutions company PeopleStrong.
“Telecom and allied sectors have been witnessing lot of action in the recent times, resulting in a positive hiring intent,” said Pankaj Bansal, chief executive officer of PeopleStrong.
The survey showed that the preferred age group for hiring in telecom and allied sectors is 22 to 25 years which shows a clear inclination towards young candidates. However, gender diversity is low, gender-wise percentage for males and females is 83.84% and 16.16%, respectively.
Though the gender diversity is low, most of the companies do not have “women” hiring targets. And even for the companies who have kept these targets the number is as low as 10-15% of total hiring done.
