    "The Great Resignation." "The Great Reshuffle." "The Great Reprioritization."

    Whatever you call it, the fact is that tens of millions of Indians have quit their jobs in 2021, creating headaches for business leaders, driving wage increases, and putting pressure on HR departments to figure out just what is causing this mass exodus of Employees- and how to curtail it.

    We at Naman HR have been in the human resources profession for over 17 years and were curious to learn more about the challenges and fundamentals of this phenomenon.

    To better understand what’s driving voluntary attrition in the labor market, we conducted a brief survey of employees in the month of February and March 2022 covering 500+ organizations across various industries.
