For some employees, a big paycheck is all they need. For othersâ€”especially Gen Y workersâ€”they thrive best in an environment that fosters learning. They also need to believe that there’s room for career advancement.
This could be anything from companies offering “clear career paths, professional development, continued education, advancement opportunities,” and mentorship programs.
To find out which companies offer the best advancement opportunities in India, we turned to Glassdoor.com, which put together a list of the top 25 companies that provide the best career opportunities. This list is based on 432,000 company reviews shared by employees over the past year.
To break any ties, Glassdoor calculated ratings to the thousandth decimal. “This is why, for example, [some companies] did not crack the Top 25 this year,” Scott Dobroski, Glassdoor’s spokesman, told us. “They were very, very close, but when we look at ratings to the thousandth, other companies beat them. Hence, the rankings reflect that.”
â€œHirers often complain that their young workers jump ship quickly. A study published this summer in the Harvard Business Review confirmed that young top performersâ€”the workers that organizations would most like to stick aroundâ€”are leaving in droves.
Researchers found that high achievers, 30 years old on average with great school and work credentials, are leaving their employers after an average of 28 months. Furthermore, three-quarters of them admit to sending out resumes, contacting search firms and interviewing for jobs at least once a year during their first employment. And 95 percent said they regularly watch for potential employers.
