India on top of the world: Two-thirds of employers plan to hire in 2013
Ferguson added that "the overall hiring picture is improving, but companies will remain watchful as they navigate headwinds and manoeuvre through somewhat precarious economic terrain."
Meanwhile, one-third of Italian employers (33 per cent) expect to downsize staffs, the highest of the top 10 economies, while recruiting activity in France is expected to be flat.
In the US, concerns over the fiscal cliff during the time of the survey may have resulted in more conservative predictions, but hiring activity has been on a gradual upward trajectory. Around 26 per cent will add new jobs this year.
Across major markets, employers are most likely to hire for positions that are closely tied to revenue and innovation.
In case of India, the top areas organisations will be hiring for included information technology, marketing and customer service, the survey said.
