WOMEN from tier 2 cities have been enthusiastically participating to be a part of the workforce and have also started opting for unconventional roles for flexibility and better income opportunities, says a report.
In 2022, jobs and professional networking platform ‘apna’ witnessed more than 31 million professional conversations among women from tier 1, tier 2, and beyond cities with an overall 36 per cent year-on-year increase in women users on the platform. As per report, apna saw around 80 per cent increase in the number of new women users on its platform.
Companies like Paytm, Zomato, Rapido, and Swiggy among others, have been among the top partners posting maximum jobs for women to diversify their workplaces, it said. 2022 has demonstrated that female users are not just looking for jobs out of necessity but to be financially independent, and to create their own identities in the increasingly competitive job market. “In fact in 2022, 60 per cent more women applied for night shift jobs,” Manas Singh, Chief Business Officer, apna.Co, said in a statement.
Apart from tier 1 cities like Hyderabad, Kolkata, and Chennai, job postings in tier 2 cities like Indore saw 28 per cent year-on-year surge, while Chandigarh and Lucknow saw a 15 per cent increase each.
