The hospitality industry is facing an over 60 per cent demand-supply gap in manpower. Hiring in the hospitality sector, including hotels, restaurants and airlines, grew by 58 per cent since November 2021. Statistically, 50% of the interviews took place in the top metros including Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Kolkata, interviews in tier II cities have increased by 30% from the last quarter. The hospitality industry has shown an upward trajectory for hiring across all tier-II cities including Jaipur, Vadodara, Kochi, North East and UP.
The white-collar job market in India witnessed a robust recovery in May as hiring activity surged over 40 per cent compared to a year ago amid recovery across key industry sectors, with particular traction seen in the travel and hospitality industry. The surge in demand for staff is often by untrained but experienced staff. Training and skilling employees on the job is inevitable but time-consuming with more than 21% of jobs posted for entry-level positions. The demand for talent in metros and non-metros remained steady, as many cities reported double-digit year-on-year growth in hiring since May.
