Commitment levels among employees in India have declined sharply in recent times, with 33% planning to leave their jobs in less than two years, a survey by global management consultancy Hay Group has found.
"One in every three Indian employee intends to shift in the next two years. Employees these days are looking for an engaging workplace and about 60% plan to leave their current jobs within five years," the survey said.
In contrast, only one-in-five of the global workforce intends to do so.Commitment levels have fallen to a 5-year low in every major region of the world. "It is a worrying sign that Indian organisations, despite averaging higher engagement levels than their Asian counterparts, find that only about 40% intend to remain loyal to their current organisations in the next five years," said Gaurav Lahiri, managing director, Hay Group India.
According to the report, employees should be effectively matched to their roles, so that their skills and abilities are put to best use. Besides, there should be an enabling environment, which facilitates individual productivity.
Less than two thirds of employees around the world feel that productivity depends on working conditions. Though employees based in India are slightly better off but still, more than a quarter admit that they could be more effective if workplace conditions allow for greater productivity.
"Employees should be effectively matched to their roles, so that their skills and abilities are put to best use and secondly there should be an enabling environment, which facilitates, rather than hinders, individual productivity," said the study which surveyed 1,610 organisations across 46 countries.
