Indian workers lead world in resolution-making: Survey








Chennai, Dec 26 (IANS) Eighty-three percent of the Indian workforce make New Year resolutions that have to do with work, a survey by global human resource services company Randstad India found.

"A little over eight out of 10 Indian employees surveyed said they make a New Year resolution and a similar proportion of 83 percent employees said they make a New Year resolution regarding their career. New Year resolutions seem to be a predominantly Indian practice with world averages of only 51 percent and 44 percent respectively for making resolutions, especially those specific to one's career," finds Randstad Workmonitor Survey 2012 - Wave 4, released by Randstad India.

Curiously, whether switching employers during the year is one resolution that workers make was not disclosed, even though India continues to lead with the highest worker mobility index of 151.

"This is in line with the findings that have emerged in the previous eleven quarterly surveys conducted since 2010. The mobility index is least in Luxembourg, Germany and The Netherlands indicating least employee churn. While the finding per se is not new, its consistent trend over eleven surveys confirms that the war for talent continues to be a major challenge for organizations in India," the survey said.

The other key findings of the survey from India is that 72 percent of those surveyed believed that the economic situation is good and a higher proportion of respondents believe that the economic situation would be better in 2013 than it was in 2012.

Ninety percent of those surveyed said that their organisation is in good health and a close 92 percent of employees believe that the health of their organisation will improve in 2013.

As to compensation, the survey finds that India has the highest score on receiving a pay hike in 2012 (for the period 2011) with 83 percent of respondents surveyed having received a pay hike while the world average was only 55 percent.
