Shift Towards New Hiring Dominates Talent Acquisition Strategies in FY25

Latest recruitment trends indicate that Indian organizations are placing a strong emphasis on filling new roles over replacement hiring as we enter the new financial year. According to a recent survey of over 1,100 HR leaders conducted by Genius Consultants, 27% of talent acquisition efforts in 2024-25 will focus on staffing positions that have been newly created.

While there will still be a need for replacement hiring to fill vacancies in existing roles, this is projected to account for 23% of recruitment activities. The survey found that the primary goal for most employers is to drive innovation and growth by establishing job functions aligned with future needs. This strategic orientation reflects a commitment to evolving with changing market demands through the infusion of fresh skillsets.

In terms of experience levels being targeted, professionals with 4-8 years of work experience are in highest demand, representing 32% of anticipated hiring. Candidates with 1-4 years of tenure follow close behind at 26%. Only 15% of recruitment is projected for entry-level job seekers.

When it comes to contract types, the report also revealed that temporary project-based roles will dominate in the coming year, constituting 27% of hiring initiatives. Fixed-term contractual positions and gig work are expected to comprise 25% and 24% respectively. Permanent staff will make up the smallest portion at 24%.
