New Delhi: As about 33 percent of Indian employees are planning to leave their jobs in less than two years, says a survey. In contrast, only one-in-five of the workforces over the world intend to do so.Globally, one in five employees (21 percent) intend to leave in less than two years, while in case of India one in every three are planning this shift within two years itself, according to the survey by global management consultancy Hay Group.Commitment levels have fallen to a 5-year low in every major region of the world as long-term loyalty has become a casualty of low levels of employee engagement and employee enablement, it said.
“It is a worrying sign that Indian organisations, despite averaging higher engagement levels than the Asia average, find that only about 40 percent intend to remain loyal to their present organisations in the next five years,” Hay Group India Managing Director Gaurav Lahiri said.
As per the report, 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.
“Frustrated employees are unlikely to persist over the long-term in this state. Clearly, the opportunities currently available for organisations to improve the bottom line by actively engaging the workforce have never been so good – and the time to act is now,” Lahiri added.
