Demand for contract workers to rise


Contract workers will see strong demand in coming months as companies ramp up output to make up for lost time, Economic Times reports. While firms like Tata Steel, L&T and KEC International have managed to hold on to a section of their workers and expect the rest to return, experts think that won’t be easy. Teamlease expects a 20-30% gap in contract worker availability once work resumes, forcing companies to go for backfills and potentially paying higher wages. Meanwhile, e-tailers and FMCG companies are already scouting for workers stuck in cities to fill urgent vacancies.
