Indian employees prefer pleasant colleagues, job security to pay

HR service firm Randstad’s Workmonitor Survey for the second quarter 2012 states that a majority of Indian employees are willing to compromise on salary provided they have job security and pleasant colleagues at work place. The survey notes that 82 percent of the employees surveyed in India attach a premium to pleasant colleagues, which is the second highest in the world after China and it is well above the world average of 60 percent. Noting that Indian employees are willing to compromise on salary for pleasant colleagues and job security, the survey said that people here work to live rather than live to work.
