Every day we come across news of another company or organisation that is firing people in not just hundreds but thousands now. The mass layoff spree is very real and has sent many people fearing job security and many other things in these uncertain times.
The reasons for these mass layoffs are varied but at the same time, the average people are calling out companies for these firings and the abysmal state of employee safety in today’s time.
So with such a volatile time, it was interesting to get to know that one particular firm in India plans to be hiring people by the thousands over the next few years.
Firm In India On Hiring Spree
PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) India, an auditing and consultancy firm, has apparently announced that they will be hiring around 30,000 employees for various jobs over the next five years.
Currently, the firm has a workforce of around 50,000 in India but it wants to expand its reach even more and plans to increase its total workforce to 80,000 the company has revealed as per the official statement.

These new offices are meant to recruit and hire skilled local talent with the PwC Chairperson saying that “We are committed to playing a meaningful role in India’s growth story and are working closely with clients and stakeholders to help solve important problems and create avenues towards a very bright future for our country. Our new venture is just one step forward in this direction and will further attempt to harness India’s vast demographic dividend.”
