According to a survey conducted by TJ Insite, the research wing of TimesJobs.com, over 40 per cent of India’s workforce will quit their current jobs within the next six months. The survey of over 20,000 professionals across India also found that almost 50 per cent of the workforce does not see significant salary hikes within their current organisation.

“For HR managers, this is an important point to be flagged,” Vivek Madhukar, VP, TimesJobs.com, has said. “You must be ready to lose your good workers not only to competitors within your industry but just about anybody in the jobs market.”

The survey further states that salary is the main driver pushing a majority of the workforce to look for new job opportunities. However, once they decide to move, the main consideration is the new job profile that they are moving to.

“Apparently, the economic slowdown and the upheaval in the jobs market have taught jobseekers some tough lessons,” Vivek Madhukar has added. “Earn as much as you can today, but if you are looking at a long professional working life, look for those job profiles that remain in business during tough work cycles — seems to be the mindset.”
