BENGALURU: IT-BPM sector is increasingly turning women centric as they constitute 51 per cent of entry level hiring and have a 50 per cent higher chance of getting job offers in the sector, according to a Nasscom survey.

Women constitute 28 per cent of job applicants, up by 5 per cent over 2012, and form 51 per cent of entry level hiring and have a 50 per cent higher chance of getting job offers, Nasscom said. Evolution of job profile from support roles to core business increased by 2 per cent over 2012, said the survey by the premier trade body and the chamber of commerce of the IT-BPM industry.

The findings from its report titled, "Gender Diversity & Inclusivity trends in the IT-BPM Sector" were shared on the sidelines of the 9th edition of the " Nasscom Diversity and Inclusion Summit 2016" in Bengaluru today. The report said women in overall managerial roles as a proportion of total women employees has increased by 2 per cent over FY2012. Average hours spent on training has increased by 38 per cent over FY2012, while that for men has only increased by 26 per cent, it said.

To assess the gender diversity and inclusivity situation in the IT-BPM domain in India, Nasscom and PWC conducted a survey of Nasscom member companies to get a perspective on how the IT-BPM industry is strengthening its current practises and embracing new emerging trends, it said in a statement.

The study was aimed at understanding the role of women in the sector, and help companies formulate practises which can further accelerate inclusion in the industry, it said.
