New Delhi: Manpower mobility survey of Mafoi for 2010 found that the employees' in India are ready to change jobs in next six months and when compared to the frequent job changers in other metro cities Delhiites were found on the top.

The mobility index on people at the various management levels in India indicate that people in the age group between 18 and 24 and senior people in the age group between 55 and 64 were quite vigorously on the move in 2010.

The attrition of senior management in corporate hierarchy had often leaded to instability affecting the organizational growth. Junior level exodus and replacement had led to disengagement. The survey recommends employers to reach out to this segment of workers.

Delhiites were on par with Chennai workers in echoing similar sentiments on anticipating improvement of primary working conditions in 2011. Racing ahead of other cities in expectation, they also expect their employment benefits to expand in the current year.

On the mobility front, people working in temporary positions were in churn and high mobility was witnessed in government and private sectors. People with moderate education were found to be on the churn looking for secure positions that offer relative comfort.

On a country-to-country comparison basis, Indians were happy with their current employers when compared to lesser number of Chinese who were not much happy with their current organization. Majority of Indians felt that primary working conditions had improved and promotions could be awarded to them for exhibiting loyalty and involvement. The survey finds that Indians love the churn than Chinese in Asia.

1: Employee exodus percentages differ from industry to industry and company to company. It's even different for different companies in the same sector. Let us take a look at the differences in employee retention methods of different companies. And even before that, let's take a look at the factors that result in employee stability and less attrition rates for various employers. For one everyone wants money and feasible increments with time. But that is not the only factor which employees seek. Security and stability of jobs are other very important factors that are the basis of employees judgement of whether or not to stick long term with one employer. Not to name but I am aware of a company which is not so good a pay master when it comes to basic level employees but the facilities offered and employee retention methods in place leave them with little exodus to worry about. I am no biggie to suggest employee retention strategies to anyone and I also believe there are better brains at work with this skill as their forte. But what I do know is that timely appreciations (not just monetary but also in terms of praise and certificates and the like) is one key element to keep ones interest. One on one discussion of problems and trying to work out solutions which work in favor of everyone or at least consolations on the issues being faced are very important factors as well. Sometimes one does not necessarily look for solutions but just wants someone to hear it out. And I have worked with employees facing distress of this kind. It's important to reiterate the values of the organization and the goals every now and then and to take employees suggestions on how things can be improved or towards a better approach to something. Even if the suggestion can't be implemented due to various factors (budgetary constraints or policy restrictions), it still would lead the employees to believe that their views are considered. Genuine interest in what one has to say makes him feel important and one should not underestimate its value. Indians are much more adaptive to various work cultures and are far better equipped than the work force of any other nation in dealing with difficult and complicated situations. But there comes a time when everyone wants to draw a line or move on in hope of finding something that adds more value and satisfaction along with the most basic need of human kind nowadays...money. I would not blame someone for switching for valid reasons especially when he has a family to support or like wise responsibilities. Delhites have more exposure of dealing with clients from different parts of the world than people from any other metro city in India. Younger generations want to rise up quickly and make big bucks in Delhi and they keep job jumping for that reason. They learn with experience and I guess it is kinda okay to give them that time to learn. What say?
