March 2010 - Employee Retention

'Employee attrition’ and ‘employee retention’ are the most used buzz word in corporate sector nowadays.  The so-called recession helped companies to retain the employees by default, as there was a virtual freeze on the recruitment last year.  Now that the economy is looking up, there is a sudden tendency of increasing attrition even among big companies. 
For this issue, we conducted a snap online survey to study the mindset of various employees.  ‘Immediate boss’ is one of the factors of employees leaving the companies.  As one management guru said, employees do not leave the companies, but they leave only the managers. 
In this issue, we have analysed various factors leading to attrition and also the consequences of employees jumping jobs often.  In our study, we found that across the board, the employees and managers lack good soft skills and leadership skills.   It is time that the Managements took it seriously and take steps to impart soft skills among the employees.

Feb 2010 - Business Communication

A tremendous change is sweeping the communication world in the past one decade.  Earlier, the technical professionals never used to be part of communication strategies. .  Now, even the technical persons are required to learn ‘Business communication’ for their own survival.  A day has come, where without the fundamental skills in business communication, no business can thrive.

Business communication is never part of any curriculum in the educational institutions.  While the students get exposed to their domain knowledge, they are not imparted the communication skills at that level.  In view  of this, nearly 90 percent of the students are facing employment problems. 
With this in mind, we have made this issue exclusive on Business Communication.  This issue is only to create awareness and importance of Business Communication.
