Employers, across most sectors, in India had been apprehensive of hiring due to uncertainty in overall business environment. However, things are expected to improve in 2014, the survey that covered 5,302 employers in India said.
"As hiring is set to rebound in India, competition for talent is likely to prove intense. Upturn in demand for outsourcing from the US and other countries will boost prospects for individuals with engineering and programming skills," ManpowerGroup President Darryl Green.
The survey noted that the headwinds encountered in many global labor markets may be moderating amid numerous signs of measured optimism among employers.
Staffing levels are expected to increase in 38 of 42 countries and territories covered under the survey, ManpowerGroup said.
The strongest hiring plans across the globe are expected from employers in India, Taiwan, New Zealand, Turkey and Costa Rica.
"There is improvement across industries and geographies. Although the improvement is still very cautious and not as robust as we've seen in the past, there are signals that confidence is starting to take hold," ManpowerGroup Chairman and CEO Jeffrey A Joerres said
