 Employment sentiments in the first half (April-September) of the current fiscal (2014-15) have been boosted with upbeat organizations expecting business and employment to grow at a brisk pace, according to study by staffing firm Teamlease. 

Teamlease said on Thursday that the reason for the optimistic outlook includes the results of the impending elections and fresh sector-specific policies a new regime is expected to usher in. 

Top gaining cities in employment outlook trends include Mumbai (up 4 per cent), Bangalore (5 per cent) and Ahmedabad (4 per cent). Delhi (4 per cent) is also projected to have an upswing in its business outlook trend. 

Locations with low employment sentiment include Kolkata and Chennai (both down 1 per cent on employment outlook), Hyderabad (down 2 per cent) and Pune/Chennai (down 2 per cent on business outlook). 

Among sectors with high employment sentiment, healthcare and pharmaceuticals were up 5 per cent and 4 per cent on employment and business outlook, respectively, while financial services (up 4 per cent and 5 per cent) led growth across both trends.
