IET India today released findings from a new report that captures the concerns regarding the uncertainties post COVID-19 on India’s workforce across sectors and various career stages.
According to the recent study jointly conducted by IET India and Feedback advisory, a market research company, about 92% prefer using their own vehicle instead of relying on shared mobility solution.
While 77% feel that they are able to manage their teams virtually, 74% feel it is difficult to coach a new employee in the work from home setup. 58% of the respondents feel that job security is a thing of the past, 66% the job growth is going to be stunted, and 46% prefer to continue working from home in the future.
The motive behind this study conducted by IET India was to consolidate the voices of professionals, so that enterprises can shape useful approaches to address the concerns of Indian workforce. A total of 789 voices from the ground across India contributed to this study.
Based on the results of the survey, the following are the key highlights:
Increase in EV adoption and infrastructure development: Recent laws allowing the sale of EVs without batteries, and customers paying for batteries as fuel through battery swapping, form an inflection point in India’s EV journey.
Augmented public transport: Augmented Reality is emerging as the perfect tool to simplify mega transport networks and systems and make them more understandable and personalised.
Workplace as an ecosystem: Workplaces need to be flexible. They need to enable changes as rapidly as people and organisations require. Individuals and teams will choose the right space based on the task required and where they feel the most productive.
Employee wellbeing: Workplace wellbeing of employees will have a direct impact on the bottom line of organisations. It will move from being a vanity function to a strategic function of the boardroom.
