The Randstad Workmonitor is aimed at a scientific understanding of employees’ intent
to change jobs over the next six months. While this is the central objective of
the study, a few other aspects such as the mix of office time – personal time, preference
of face-to-face contact over phone / e-mail and the influence of the Internet and
smart phones have also been studied. Essentially, the Workmonitor is a ‘lead indicator’
on employee mobility that can enable organizational preparedness for future scenarios.
The study was conducted across a statistically significant sample of 117,597 employees
across 32 countries which include 5480 employees across major states in India.
The findings of the study have been indexed to have an easier understanding of the
employee mobility intent. The mobility index is derived based on employees responses
to two questions about their intent to change their job – the first question is
about changing the current employer for a comparable job in the next six months
and the second question is about changing their current employer for a different
job / profession in the next six months.
