As companies seek to harness an international workforce’s advantages, the Indian staffing industry has experienced a boom. Even with the impact of COVID on businesses worldwide, Indian staffing continues to bounce back and grow bigger than ever.

However, this unprecedented growth has also created a shift in how Indian staffing operates. The staffing industry is gaining recognition as a vital part of the workforce, and the emergence of gig workers also highlighted the need for protections for those who work in the industry.

While almost 85% of the staffing industry is performing informally, the future of staffing is shifting to formal:

  • In three years, 2.7% of the workforce shifted from informal to formal.
  • The formal workforce experienced a compounded annual growth rate of 10.8%
  • The flexible workforce grew at a compounded annual rate of 16.3%

This rise in formal staffing means that workers can experience more protections while employers can find quality and consistent work.

ISF Goal: Engage. Empower. Enable.

For years, Indian Staffing Federation has been heading this change from an informal to formal workforce. They have worked with government leaders, employers, and workers to create a sustainable and healthy work environment for everyone involved.

ISF’s partnerships have brought new protections and government partnerships in recent years. Their most landmark achievement was helping to pass the Occupational Safety, Health, and Working Conditions code of 2020. This code brought the staffing industry under the OSH Labor Code through National State License.

Many companies are turning to ISF to create a better workforce for their companies.
