New Delhi: In a survey conducted by Talentedge, India's leading Ed-Tech firm, of over 1000 young professionals across eight metros, the findings revealed an interesting perspective of India's young working professionals.
While overwhelming evidence suggests that workweek of more than 40 hours leads to a dip in the productivity, there are many professionals heralding long workweeks as a measure of their effectiveness.
As per Talentedge's survey, more than 80% millenials are convinced that they work harder than their superiors as their work hours stretch longer than that of their managers. The findings show that more than 12 hours are spent at work by 16% of the millenials aging 21-24 however only 2% of their superiors are spending the same time at work.
This survey was conducted via social media and one on one calling, giving an insight into how the young working professionals feel about work hours vs. productivity and their contribution towards the organisations' growth.
Interestingly, most Indians think that they should get an increment even if their bosses don't get one. With millenials, this number goes up to 87%.
Sharing his views, Aditya Malik, CEO and MD, Talentedge said, "We are constantly finding surprising insights in our interaction with young professionals of India and these findings reflect an inability in corporate India to marry productivity with efficiency. We hope these findings will bring some realistic and honest discourse in corporate India over work hours and productivity."
