More people likely to switch jobs; women to lead
New Delhi: Many people in the country are likely to change their jobs in the next six months, while women are expected to be more ready to find new employment avenues than their male counterparts, according to a survey.

The findings of staffing services firm Ma Foi Randstad are based on the Workmonitor survey that also focused on the employees' readiness to change jobs.

"Women employees are most mobile in India and are expected to take lead in finding new jobs in 2011," it said.

As per the survey, which covered 27 countries, employees in India have the "greatest intent to change jobs in the coming six months".

The intention of changing jobs was also relatively high among employees in China, Mexico and Chile, it added.

"The mobility index is least in Luxembourg, Germany, Hungary and Netherlands indicating least employee churn," the report said.

1: It is indeed an appalling phenomenon becoming more prevalent in India. Whether it is a man or woman, I am sure each would have their own reasons to quit and move to another (greener) pasture. But does it really remain greener after? Top HR experts have done enough research without any solution visible to anyone.

If you look back a decade or more when public sector companies ruled in India, resignation was the most unheard word and once someone joined one of the public sector company they were sure to retire from the same place. But now with the explosion of job opportunities with IT and MNC companies, the attractions are too many to ignore.

What the fast moving professional community do not perhaps realize that with every jump they loose the standing that they had developed over the past few years in the previous company and need to re-start all over. Maybe they get a good salary jump and a higher position but does it really help in moving up the value chain in the long run?

Of course, the biggest looser is the employer who has to find a replacement at a cost and allow time for him/her to settle down and reach the same level of outputs as the quitting person had reached earlier. This is a bigger loss.
