The BPO sector, which has been one of the largest employment generators in the country for years, has taken a back seat, as per a recent survey. A mapping of year-on-year job trends by Shine.com reveals that the BPO/Call Center industry has dropped down several places. The second position of the BPO/Call Centre industry has now been occupied by the manufacturing industry, which has shown promising growth recently. The BFSI and Education/Training sectors have also witnessed increased jobs creation.
Top performing cities
The city-wise analysis, done as part of the survey, shows Bengaluru, Mumbai and Delhi as the top job creators in the country. The metro cities of the country are absorbing maximum professionals. There has been substantial growth in the number of jobs in tier 2 cities such as Chandigarh and Jaipur.
