Permanent jobs from home for certain roles are gaining popularity

BENGALERU : Permanent remote jobs are rapidly growing in popularity, especially for certain roles in the software services industry, with employees showing improved productivity and other health benefits even if they don’t physically travel to offices.

Naukri.com currently has over 93,000 permanent and temporary remote job postings, 22% of which are for permanent remote positions only. The job search portal recorded more than 3.2 million searches for permanent and temporary remote jobs by Indian job seekers in the past six months. About 57% of those searches were for permanent remote jobs.

According to Naukri.com, some of the companies posting temporary and permanent remote jobs include Amazon, Tech Mahindra Ltd, HCL Technologies Ltd, PWC, Trigent, Flipkart, Siemens, Deloitte, Oracle, Zensar Technologies Ltd, Tata Consultancy Services Ltd and Capgemini. . .

Globally, companies such as Slack, Twitter, Spotify and Tata Steel have enabled employees to continue working remotely.

TeamLease data showed that profiles such as data scientist, software developers, designers, product managers, technical writers, programmers, recruiters and other individual contributor roles are most likely to work from home permanently.

The data also suggests that productivity increased with working from home (WFH). A FlexJobs report showed that remote and flexible workers tend to be happier and more loyal due to lower stress levels when working from home.

“Some of the benefits of working from home are increased flexibility, reduced overall infrastructure costs, employee retention, access to a broader talent base, fewer distractions, and overall cost savings for employees,” said Siva Prasad Nanduri, IT Staffing Manager, TeamLease. Digital.

Granted, remote work has its own downsides. “Beginners are at a disadvantage because work is viewed more as a transaction than a collaboration and can become a barrier to career growth,” Nanduri said.

Nonetheless, as WFH grows in popularity, Tech Mahindra sees a growing demand for gig workers who have the necessary niche skills.

“We currently operate an AI-based talent marketplace called Talex to identify gig workers internally. We have also built an external marketplace called BeGig that allows employers to seamlessly tap into the freelance workforce and hire the right and required talent,” said Harshvendra Soin, Global Chief Human Resources Officer and Chief marketing, Tech Mahindra.

Zensar Technologies launched a work-from-anywhere initiative in the early stages of the pandemic, resulting in multiple benefits. “One of the biggest benefits of this initiative is that we have access to a diverse set of talent that may have been out of our reach due to location…It has also helped us recruit those who were in career interruption, mainly female employees as well as those with physical disabilities.This has also led to a better integration of our employees into working life as they do not spend time on long journeys, which has a positive impact on their well-being,” said Vivek Ranjan, HR director at Zensar.

HR experts believe remote work is here to stay as it provides access to talent without geographic barriers.

“Organizations with a remote work culture will pave the way to attract top talent and give employees more options to define their work-life balance. When it comes to talent acquisition and retention, companies are now realizing that to attract and retain top talent, remote working must be an option,” said Varun Sachdeva, APAC Recruitment Manager, NLB Services, a workforce solutions provider.
