Indian employees (95 per cent) want to continue learning in order to retain and increase their employability, according to a latest survey report released by Randstad Workmonitor. 

The report further said that 91 percent people in India has said that unemployed people must be retrained as much as possible so that they can fill in jobs that cannot be filled because of labour scarcity.

Fewer employees in India expect to be employed elsewhere in the coming six months than they did in the previous quarter causing the Mobility Index to decrease to 144 from 150 in 2016. Mobility is the lowest in India decreasing by 6 points.

Talking on global terms, 86 per cent people say that they need to keep learning in order to progress in career, and 88 per cent people say that unemployed people must be retrained to fill vacant positions due to labour scarcity.

89 per cent would be willing to be retrained themselves to avoid unemployment. Also, 42 per cent of the respondents worldwide would accept a lower salary or a demotion in order to remain employed.


Appetite to change jobs is the highest in India. Compared to last quarter, the job change appetite has increased in Brazil, Czech Republic and Norway while it has decreased in Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Poland, and the Netherlands.

Another important highlight of the survey was the gender diversity in the male and female workforce. 55 per cent of the people surveyed indicated that men are favoured over women under the same qualification. Dissecting further, 61 per cent of the males and 47 per cent females agreed on the above point. 

However, 91 per cent of the people surveyed believe that both men and women in similar roles were rewarded equally at the workplace in India, comparatively much higher than the global average of 79 per cent.
