Today, with a 10x increase in interactions among applicants and employers since the lockdown, apna is connecting people to opportunities for regrowth. This rise in gig economy jobs is set to have a direct and positive impact in restarting India’s economy. The sectors with highest employment demand on the platform include delivery, telecalling (BPO), sales, marketing and business development.
Committed to harnessing the power of tech towards the growth of the country and it’s rising workforce, Nirmit Parikh, CEO and Founder, apna, said, “The increase in the number of jobs listed on apna is a reflection of how India has fought back and risen like a phoenix. It is the dedication of small & medium businesses and workforce together that we are walking on the path to recovery. With digital adoption by almost all sections of the working class, apna will be able to add wind beneath the wings of the aspirations of the rising workforce.”
