The India professional employer organizations (PEOs) market has witnessed significant growth due to rising rural to urban migration, rapid urbanization rates, rising investments in the digital infrastructure, and rising FDI inflows from major companies around the globe. Many multi-national companies have started leveraging India professional employer organizations (PEOs) services for reducing the pressure arising from overwhelming response on applications posted online. Additionally, professional employer organizations keep track of changing rules, regulations, and labor laws across various industries, which could prove time-consuming for larger firms, These are the factors driving the growth of the India professional employer organizations (PEOs) market.
Increasing demand for PEOs software due to work-from-home environment is augmenting the growth of the India professional employer organizations (PEOs) market
The COVID-19 had disrupted the working model of almost all companies around the world. The Covid-19 outbreak forced a large number of companies to embrace the trend of working from home to prevent the work environment from getting exacerbated and impacted severely. Additionally, this also shifted the recruitment process from in-office interviews to online interviews and assessments. It had, however, put greater pressure on firms, which lacked proper infrastructure for assessing a candidate's performance. These companies took advantage of the prolonged lockdown when they made the switch to PEOs to reduce their workload. Many large corporations have already moved their operations online permanently, indicating that the present situation may persist for a long time. Consequently, it is driving the growth of the India professional employer organizations (PEOs) market since these organizations are better able to manage employees, their benefits, pay, and other HR-related works, which has allowed rising growth potential for the Indian professional employer organizations (PEOs) market.
The rising demand for enhancing cost savings is driving the growth of the India professional employer organizations (PEOs) market
The declining growth of India's economy over the past few years prompted many small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to cut costs through PEOs, which aided in employee handling, employee compensation, HR services, and in many other ways. SMEs have not only benefited from it, but they have also saved more than expected. Professional employer organizations (PEOs) manage multiple tasks on behalf of employers in addition to saving both time and money, thus contributing to the growth of the Indian market for PEOs. Furthermore, PEOs have proven beneficial for small employers who lack the expertise or digital resources to manage their employment functions and are in need of efficient and time-saving solutions for tasks like payroll, HR Information Systems (HRIS) and human resources management. All of these factors together have proven pivotal for the growth of the India professional employer organizations (PEOs) market.
Major growth in demand arising from the cloud-based type sub-segment in the India professional employer organizations (PEOs) market
Based on types, the India professional employer organizations (PEOs) market is segmented into on-premises and cloud-based. The cloud-based segment held the largest share in the India professional employer organizations (PEOs) market in 2020. The online segment leverages software-based management programs, wherein the PEOs and their client organizations maintain records for job candidates. Additionally, by leveraging the on-premises or web-based channel, PEOs perform hiring and administrative activities besides offering employee benefits and compensation and various other services. In contrast to this, the cloud-based segment offers the same advantages while taking into account the rising number of applications received every day. Additionally, the cloud-based solutions provided by PEOs help increase the platform's scalability, allowing it to process a greater number of applications than on-premises based apps. This benefits the growth of the India professional employer organizations (PEOs) market.
SMEs application segment is augmenting the growth prospects for the India professional employer organizations (PEOs) market
Among applications, the India professional employer organizations (PEOs) market is grouped into SME’s (Small and medium enterprises) and large enterprises. The SMEs segment accounted for the largest share in the India professional employer organizations (PEOs) market in 2020. Additionally, the large enterprises segment is projected to record a healthy CAGR over the upcoming years. Because of the existence of substantial corporate offices and rising digital infrastructure across the Northern parts of India, many people have been able to apply for more jobs with the world's leading firms.
Corporate giants are struggling to handle the incessant number of applications received every day, which proves to be time-consuming and increases the need for more resources to find the right candidate for the role, which may increase the operational costs of the organization. This has enabled PEOs to take advantage of the increasing market potential for employee management services, and this has greatly assisted them in reducing the burden on their human resource departments. Thus, many large corporations are now turning to PEOs for identifying the filtered pool of candidates eligible for the role offered by an organization. It is thereby positively impacting the growth of the India professional employer organizations (PEOs) market.
