A survey conducted on productivity at Indian workplaces has revealed that salary issues and spouse’s attitude are some of the the biggest factors that affect work efficiency. Team Viva reports.
Be it gossiping or tittle-tattling, everyone enjoys it, no matter if one is with friends, or at workplace. Usually, for jaded office-goers, it is more of a stress-buster. Recently, TeamLease Services, India’s largest staffing company, discharged the findings of its latest survey Personal Attributes Affecting Workplace Productivity to understand India’s new World of Work. The survey was undertaken in the main cities of India, including Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai and Pune which demonstrated various personal aspects that affect productivity at workplace.
The study reveals that more than 80 per cent of respondents believe that the amount of salary one gets, also affects efficiency. The investigation also discloses that 67 per cent of the respondents agree that their spouse’s behaviour towards their profession and liaison with other people at work affect productivity. “While we were aware to some extent that appearance, marital status, relationship with colleagues, gossip mongering, etc do affect productivity in some or the other way, the study sheds light on some other lesser-known aspects too. The varying degrees in which these attributes affect workplace productivity as estimated by the respondents also seem interesting. Today’s workplace environment is undergoing a constant change and it is important for companies and employees alike to adapt fast,” says Sangeeta Lala, Vice President, Teamlease Services.
Most of the respondents in Hyderabad believe that relationship based characteristic affect productivity. However, only 1/4th of respondents from Mumbai and Pune agree with the thought. More than 90 per cent people in Ahmadabad feels that the health issues affect productivity in work, and 75 per cent of other cities agree to it. But, more than 40 per cent of the respondents also believe that working with opposite sex does not affect productivity while another 47 per cent feel that work is not affected by marital status. Around 75 per cent respondents also said that emotional issues adversely affect workplace productivity.
