Hiring from places other than cities where companies have offices has increased by about 5% to 35% in pre-pandemic times, showed a recent survey by recruitment firm CIEL HR Services, called Exclusively shared with ET.
The agency tracked the recruitment trend of 181 companies over the past six months and helped them recruit 15,090 people in the last six months, of whom 35% were hired from outside the base location. They will work remotely.
“These companies are now tapping into a talent pool that is remarkably larger than what has traditionally been considered for the resource,” said Aditya Mishra, chief executive officer, CIEL HR Services.
Employers have begun to define roles that can be performed remotely and are therefore agnostic to the candidate’s location.
Cities with demand for talent for remote work roles include Ooty, Patna, Nagpur, Chittoor, Coimbatore, Hubli, Indore, Kolkata, Madurai, Mangalore, Salem, Tiruchirappalli and Thrissur.
According to a CIEL survey, hiring is taking place for functions such as sales, operations, HR, finance, supply chain, customer service and technology.

Out of all the major metropolitan cities, a large number of candidates found jobs in Mumbai in places like Chandigarh, Chennai, Delhi, Ghaziabad, Hyderabad, Indore, Kolkata, Lucknow, Noida and Pune.
It is followed by Bangalore where only 61 per cent job offers were given to candidates residing in the city. The rest went to professionals from places like Chittoor, Coimbatore, Indore, Mangalore, Kolkata, Patna and Tiruchirappalli to work remotely.
LTI’s Kumar said, “These new normal times have enabled ‘work from anywhere’ and thus encourage employers to broaden their hiring reach.” The IT services firm has hired over 4,000 employees in the last two quarters.
Harshvendra Soin, Global Chief People Officer and Marketing Head, Tech Mahindra said that the IT services company is increasing hiring from Tier 2 cities.
