“It is imperative that leaders need to create clarity and alignment around company goals, eliminate busywork that doesn’t support those goals and listen to their people. However, the data shows that only 44 per cent of companies rarely, if ever, collect employee feedback. Only 56 per cent of employees in India can confidently say that their company solicits employee feedback at least once a year. This means that just under half of the companies in India hear about their employees’ experiences at work,” the report said.

At present several Indian IT companies have been recording attrition rate of 20 per cent and more after the pandemic.

“90 per cent of employees in India (versus a global average of 76 per cent) say that they’d stay at their company longer if they could benefit more from learning and development opportunities, revealing a powerful retention tool. Currently 66 per cent of employees in India say the best way to develop their skills is to change companies,” the report said.

The survey found that 91 per cent of employees in India would be motivated by the promise of socializing with coworkers and 92 per cent by the prospect of rebuilding team bonds.

“The data underscores we have a deep human need to connect with the people we associate with, and that spending time together can help us build stronger relationships, which are key to doing our best work,” the report said.
