Job vacancies in India’s blue and grey-collar segments have increased four-fold in the last year from November 2021 to November 2022, according to job ad data from Billion Careers platform, a subsidiary of Quess Corp.
The vacancies increased by 301% in the past year to over 10.5 million in 2022 from over 2.6 million in 2021. The growth was driven by digitisation, automation and changing work models. 
“The job market trends of 2022, ranging from ‘Great Resignation’ to the emergence of gigs, have shown that every segment will be more focused on hiring, including blue and grey-collar workers," said Ajay Kumar Singh, senior VP and Chief Business Officer of Billion Careers.
“Organisations today also prefer hiring employees with tech-related skills as digitisation has penetrated across India,” Singh added.
According to Singh, recruiters will also optimise hiring processes through technology and address the demand-supply talent gap, focusing on employee engagement and retention.
The research also showed that approximately 60% of blue and grey-collar hires were fresh graduates with 0-3 years of work experience.
