Indians are happy at workplace, but constantly on the lookout 2

This was the headlines of an article I read in this morning’s Economic times. The article spoke about a study that found that the level of job satisfaction in India is extremely high at around 88%, as against the global average of around 56 %. It also said that 71% of the Indian workforce is either thinking about or actively looking for new positions. I run a business helping Organisations

  • By -

A very good friend of mine recently told me “Don’t make resolutions, have goals” It made sense to me. Goals seem more tangible and there is something to gun for, but then why do people make resolutions? That got me wondering, how are resolutions different from goals? Wanting to lose a few kilos, doing a trek are goals not resolutions. While goals give you achievable milestones that keep you motivated

Having done close to 185,000 exit interviews , it’s natural for me to believe that we at AceNgage have a fair idea of what is driving employee attrition. So when I see white papers by leaders in the market stating that employees leave because of ‘better pay’ or ‘better career opportunities’, it makes me smile.

Considering that they are involved from the first day to the last day of every employee’s tenure they have to have some relevance, In spite of

Emotions run high and most of the times the company is left clueless about the reasons behind the talent departure.

This not only retains the confidentiality factor, but also helps the company understand the lead theme around employee exits. Some

  • By -

It’s been a 7-year journey and when we set out explaining to our clients why they should outsource their exit interviews, we were met with quite a bit of resistance.
