Mumbai: Amid the ongoing nationwide lockdown when all organisations in the IT sector are engaging its employees in remote work or work from home, a study has revealed that only 0.2 per cent workforce in the IT industry is highly productive.

About 99.8 per cent of the workforce in the information technology sector is incapable of working from home and only 0.2 per cent  are 'Work from Home' champions and showcase high productive attributes, according to a study by “research-backed innovative venture” SCIKEY MindMatch.

 

The study is based on more than 10,000 inputs of jobseekers in the IT sector on the MindMatch assessment through the SCIKEY Talent Commerce Marketplace. 

Most of the workforce had a resistance to learning and exploring (95 per cent), lacked practical communication skills (65 per cent) and were poor in planning and execution (71 per cent), the study found.

As every individual is driven by a different force and identifying an employee's strength and weakness plays a crucial role in enhancing remote productivity, companies can enhance the productivity of their employees on the basis of their personality types, the study opined.

The study further said 16.97 per cent of the employees are challenge-driven and such people should be given challenging tasks and can work seamlessly with minimum intervention.

It identified 17 per cent of employees as instruction-driven and needing clearcut direction to deliver a task.

While engaging with these employees, especially under the remote working scenario, one should pay close attention to the details of the tasks assigned to them, it added.

The data revealed that 40.42 per cent of the IT workforce is logic-driven and in order to engage remotely with them it becomes mandatory to assign them a task that is logic-driven and to answer their queries, no matter how small or how many.

About 12.7 per cent of the IT workforce comprises employees who thrive on their social interactions and as a result, work from home is a challenge for them.

They do not fear the task but fear the lack of social interaction and to engage such a person remotely, a daily virtual communication becomes mandatory and a face to face video conferencing is definitely uplifting, it added.
