ATTRITION

In pursuit of happiness we all move from one place to another .Sometimes changing jobs,sometimes changing places in the quest to be happy and to seek happiness.We often misinterpret it as  growth in our life where we try to convince ourselves the jump from one company to another shall facilitate growth in the career graph,whereas sometimes we tend to lose our identity in knowing ourselves after getting confused over the kinds of job.

Truth is we need stability as well as the comfort zone of our working,anything that beyond our comfort level isn’t neither  acceptable nor welcomed by us.But the fact remains we do not progress until we step out of that comfort ring.To stay in a place,a career,a company for long should depend on the amount of satisfaction,contentment and progress we have in that particular job.Growth does not only mean a promotion but it involves an overall growth of the person as an individual,which enhances ,his work circle,intelligence level, general awareness,behavior and the courage of taking risks.Simultaneously the  change in place,career and job should also bring upon  happiness mentally else such a change or such a stagnant form shall deform,stagnate the person in mind.

A change in job should be for the sake of getting more exposure and responsibilities to be delivered which you are capable of and weren’t getting in the older organization,for staying in such a place than rust your active mind,but the jump  only for the sake of getting paid more isn’t the solution for a restless mind.The sense of insecurity shall always creep in,because you yourself know how much and what you deserve.

There is always a deserving level  of a person and the person himself knows it better.Expecting to get more than deserved is merely cheating self or live in a false illusion.

Attrition is today’s serious topic wherever corporate or any  organization speaks about their growth and stability.

To be able to sustain its efficient employees with satisfaction is a huge gigantic task in itself,for humans tend to get attracted by mere illusions and better pay packages.The level of attrition nowadays is much more than it was earlier ,few years back.The reason being very simple,the increasing number of opportunities,the desire to achieve more within less time,easy ways of earning more money but very seldom due to any typical  atmosphere in the organization. Problems within the  management,quality,production departments  is very common  in every company,but this doesn’t lead to any change or switch over of job.

Neither the inability to perform suddenly results in such a behavior,its more of an inconsistent behavior of an individual whose mind dangles between the two ends where he is incapable of sticking himself to any place or thought.Such a person if at all  leaves an organization,it will be better for the progress of the company to let him go. These growing percentage of attrition can be controlled well by the HR departments of the organization which a play a very vital  role in such corporate structures. While recruiting these personnel can well assess the mental psychology of an individual and any person reflecting a flickering mind with an inconsistent pattern of work profile can be termed under such category.

The main reasons for attrition are :

  1. A better pay package and good job profile.
  2. Desire to grow faster by any means.
  3. Loss of interest in the type of work and company.
  4. Monotonous work .
  5. Change of place ,city.
  6. Bad organizational structure.
  7. Frustration
  8. Insecurity of self in the present job.
  9. Insufficient growth or incentive structure .
  10. Lack of Motivation
  11. Lack of communication with the leader/superior.
  12. Personal Problems.

An organization grows,flourishes with the progress and growth of every individual working in its system.To ensure this a balanced,transparent,healthy relationship between the company and its employees should be incorporated.

A contended and happy mind never flickers irrespective of certain troubles and is always helpful in creating a healthy work environment.

So the function of  HR in any organization demands it  to be more dynamic and activated . It should understand the role of its presence and should be able to deliver the results perfectly. It thus is called human resources which can go into the depth of the very reason of attrition.

  1. good points Soumya!
    I have always changed my job whenever it has become a comfort zone….somehow I am allergic to routine and comfort…wish I could change that.

  2. a lot of things that i have experienced. this is what haunts everyone in the industry. have seen people thinking of so called jump as soon as they get into the organization. their training would not even have started but this a jump is the only aim.
