A latest study conducted by IT and tech employee association NASSCOM and job search portal Indeed highlights that young Indians prefer jobs in the tech sector despite mass layoffs going on in the industry. The report titled ‘Gen Z and Millennials: Reshaping the Future of Workforce’ says, “The technology sector continues to be the sector of choice for Gen Z with over 70 per cent of Gen Z’ students surveyed finding the technology sector very aspirational and interested in taking up tech jobs.” It is worth noting that India has a higher share of young people in its population than other countries. As of 2021, India’s share of Millennials and Gen Z stood at 52 per cent, higher than the global average of 47 per cent. Moreover, around 3,80,000 freshers have been hired by the Indian tech industry in FY22. The study noted that 79 per cent of GenZ are willing to spend more than 2 years in their first job provided employers provide them with the right value proposition. Sangeeta Gupta, Senior Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer of NASSCOM said, “The workforce is changing and so are the workplaces. With newer perspectives and ideas, GenZ and Millennials are setting the future course of employee engagement, retention, and acquisition strategies. It will be interesting to see how these newer generations shape India’s future as the talent hub of the world.”
