Indian Employees Prefer Career Advancement to Higher Pay
By The Financial Express, 2/13/2014
Career advancement is the motivator in India, says global workforce solutions company Kelly Services in a recent report, “Workers Preference and Workplace Agility.”
They note that eight out of 10 employees would give up higher pay to learn new skills. Work-life balance is another driver for potential employees: 58 percent of Indian employees say they are likely to give up higher pay and/or career growth or advancement for a more flexible work schedule.
One more trend that the report identified is the preference for global employers: 62 percent of workers in the APAC region would prefer to work in a global company, compared to 10 percent who prefer a national employer.
