We want better jobs
Before you read the following statistics, look around your IT, BPO, KPO Offices. How many of your colleagues are ‘Depressed’ and how many are itching to throw their resignation on their stupid boss’s desk and march out of their Offices in Hyd, Bang, Pune or any of the IT-BPO hubs?
International management consulting firm Hay Group which ‘works with leaders to transform strategy into reality’ has released the following research
Indian employees looking for an engaging workplace, 60 per cent of them planning to leave their present jobs within five years
- Just two-thirds of worldwide employees are engaged
- Employee engagement levels in India stand marginally higher than the Asia average, at 68 per cent
- 58 per cent of employees in India set to exit their present organizations before 2017
- Global firms lose ground to the highest performing organizations, where engagement levels found to be 75 per cent
- Company loyalty hits five-year low
Global firms’ performance continues to be stunted, with more than a third of employees across the world unwilling and unable to go the extra mile for their organization, according to new research from global management consultancy Hay Group.
In the research published above, Hay Group says that ‘more than a third of employees are unwilling and unable to go the extra mile’
But based on my 3-4 years reporting on the Indian BPO sector, I would say that at least half of the Indian BPO employees are willing and able to punch their bosses for making them work too hard.
