India Inc’s Hiring Activity DROPS!
The naukri.com’s monthly job index — JobSpeak — fell to 713 points in December 2009, from 760 in November. However, the three-month average index reflected a more “steady hiring scenario”, the survey said.
On a three-month moving average basis, the job index (including jobs added and jobs refreshed) moved up by 0.5 per cent, it added. India Inc’s hiring activity witnessed a slowdown in December, a fall of 6 per cent compared to the previous month, mainly due to year-end holiday season impacting employers’ recruitment plans, says a survey by job portal naukri.com.
