Consultancies Report 2-3% Hike In Revenues In FY-2021
Consultancies have reportedly posted an increase of 2-3% in their revenues in the Financial year 2021 and as per estimates, they will be keeping up with this performance in the current fiscal year also.
LinkedIn data has found that hiring in India recovered from 10% in April to 35% in May.
But financial uncertainty remains, which has made professionals vulnerable after the second wave of the pandemic receded.
This can be seen in the April 2021 hiring rate which was just 10%, a sharp fall from 50% in March.
The new recovery to 35% can be attributed to easing of lockdown restrictions and resumption of economic activity.
