The great awakening may be in India as the great resignation might be in the west.With its relatively young population (half of the population is under the age of 25), India is displaying managerial anomalies that are a little bit different from other nations.And these trends are indistinguishment from the great resignation, which was largely concentrated in the west.The great resignation reflects the rising rate of workers quitting in 2021.In an exclusive interview with Hindustan Unilever executive director (HR), Anuradha Razdan, they were uncovered in a first-of-its-kind study.The pandemic was a pivotal moment in society, according to HUL executive director (HR).People in India re-evaluated their roles and roles as a result.Although a great deal has been written about the great resignation, these were based on results that came from mainly western sources. In India, some of these trends have quickly emerged and became more apparent as a result of the pandemic.It has also taught people how to balance work and life.To live life in India, death and destruction prompted a re-evaluation of its pervasiveness, which has also impacted belief systems.New priorities have arisen, keeping the individual and personal life in focus. According to the report, factors that influence the young Indian professional today range from a pandemic to the mushrooming of unicorns (startups valued at more than $1 billion) to the changing patterns of family.In addition, the report highlights the need for empathy leaders as alpha codes continue to dominate in some industries, as does power distance in India.People have a sense of self-worth and are able to express themselves.People want to create something on their own due to India's extensive startup scene.They want an organization to give them space to run a side hustle. People are looking up to leaders who are inclusive, less hierarchy, and open to peoples' entrepreneurial visions, according to Razdan.India is a step behind the western when it comes to achieving greatness.Promotions and higher compensation have long been considered as the most effective measures.According to the report, success is no longer linear and templated.Today, another emerging measure of success is that of expressing one's own individual strengths rather than conforming to the norm. According to me, today's consumer habits will shape tomorrow's work practices.What we see in society is socioeconomic, economic, and cultural dynamics, as well as how employees perceive their jobs, and their relationship with the company are only the beginning of the journey.What we saw in the first six months after the pandemic isn't what we saw last year.According to Razdan, the economy is expected to continue to evolve over the next 13-14 years, although Razdan said that one can expect to see a generational change. These are professionals with a very different attitude, aspirations, and convictions.She said that at least 4-5 generations are working together today.She said that leaders can be in a completely different space as compared to those who are being led.There's a clear trend: people want flexibility. We've left it up to the line managers and teams to decide when and how people will come to the office, according to Razdan.
