9 out of 10 Indian leaders question employee productivity in hybrid work

While 93 percent of employees in India say they are productive at work, a surprising 91 percent of leaders feel the shift to hybrid work has made it hard to trust employees to be productive, a Microsoft study showed. Thursday.

This hyper-focus on productivity is taking a toll on health and wellness, with 47% of employees and 58% of leaders in India reporting they are already burned out at work.

Nearly 93 percent of leaders in India say getting employees back to the office in person is a concern.

The data makes it clear that hybrid working has created a growing disconnect between employees and leaders.

They disagree on what constitutes productivity, how to maintain autonomy while ensuring accountability, the benefits of flexibility and the role of the office, according to India findings from Microsoft’s ‘2022 Work Trend Index Pulse Report’.

However, more than 9 in 10 (91 percent) of Indian employees are willing to work from the office if they can socialize with co-workers.

To bridge the gap, “a new approach is needed that recognizes that work is no longer just a place, but an experience that must keep employees engaged and connected, no matter where they work from,” said Bhaskar Basu, Country Head- Modern Work, Microsoft India.

The data showed that only 44 percent of companies rarely, if ever, collect employee feedback.

Only 56 percent of employees in India can confidently say that their company solicits employee feedback at least once a year.

“This means that just under half of companies in India hear about their employees’ experiences at work (44 per cent versus a global average of 57 per cent),” the findings showed.

Nearly 60 percent of employees in India say there aren’t enough growth opportunities at their company to stay long-term, according to the report.
