Although employee engagement rates in India are increasing, one in four employees say they would consider leaving their job for a better opportunity, according to a new report released by human resource consulting firm Mercer. According to the report, 80 percent of Indian employees feel engaged at work, and 90 percent of respondents said they were proud to work for their organization. Despite this pride, one out of four employees said they would leave given a better chance elsewhere. The report adds many of these workers would leave their jobs for more competitive compensation, better benefits, and more opportunity for professional advancement. "While many employees in India tell us they are proud and motivated, far fewer see themselves as staying for the long haul with their current employer," the report added. About 20 percent of employees felt their skills were not being used optimally, and as many also felt they were not being compensated fairly for the work they do.
