Professionals cautiously optimistic heading into 2021: LinkedIn

Indian professionals are cautiously optimistic heading into 2021 as 40 per cent professionals expect a rise in the number of new job opportunities, according to LinkedIn year-end data.


LinkedIn recently released key survey and platform data for 2020.


The year-end data revealed India has remained cautiously optimistic and resilient in the face of uncertainty, and overall confidence scores remained steady between 50 and 57 from April to November.


Findings show that two  in five  (40 per cent ) Indian professionals expect an increase in the number of new jobs (up from 19% in April), and 1 in 2 (53 per cent ) expect their companies to do better in the next 6 months, going into 2021.


This optimism comes at a time when India's economy is slowly opening up, and the hiring rate continues to recover steadily back to Pre-COVID levels with a 46% year-over-year (YoY) growth as of October 2020.


The workforce sentiment data and confidence scores are based on the online survey responses of 21,066 professionals from April to November 2020 as part of the LinkedIn Workforce Confidence Index, which is a fortnightly pulse on the confidence of the Indian workforce.
