Superstitions galore at workplaces: TeamLease

According to staffing company TeamLease Services' survey titled 'Superstitions@Workplace', Indian corporate workforce still finds sanctity in their superstitious beliefs to herald success. The survey states that the overall faith in personal belief or superstition is quite high (62 percent) among employees in India and more than half of respondents (51 percent) follow superstition at their workplace. While vaastu shastra and feng shui are the most common practices followed at the workplace, personal favourites are lucky charms like stones, colour specific items, specific number oriented items and the ubiquitous bamboo shoot. The study further said that management in India is generally adaptive to various superstitious beliefs of employees and does not restrict them from practicing it at work as long as it does not negatively affect productivity.
