Report on an Employee Satisfaction Survey – April 2020
by Sunny Shukla – MD, Confluence Consulting India Pvt Ltd
Confluence HR embarked on this crucial exercise to get a fair idea about how the Indian workforce perceives the work environment. The core idea behind this exercise is to assess how corporate leadership needs to take a bottom-up approach and transform the workforce into priceless human capital. As an HR company, we believe a happy employee is the key to the success of any organization.
