As per the findings of Kelly Global Workforce Index survey ‘The Autonomous and Empowered Workforce’, the changing dynamics of the modern workplace are causing employees to evaluate the best options for advancing their careers and securing promotions. The survey states that 52 percent of workers view switching jobs as the key to career growth. According to Kamal Karnath, Managing Director, Kelly Services India, “The idea of a career-for-life has certainly waned. At the other extreme, many employees now don’t consider it a taboo to be passively available to other employers, even when they are happy in their current positions. This paradox in the labor market seems to be the new norm, and it poses special challenges for both employees seeking to choose their next best employers, and employers wishing to retain the best talent.” Also the most active job seekers are in India with nearly 46 percent Indians constantly on a look out for a job switch with Indonesia and China being the leaders in this regard at 74 percent and 61 percent respectively.
