Different people have different views on this and the most common one is better salary and company. But it is a fact that people leave Managers and not company.

Friends, I have tried this and it works believe me. If you want to retain your team have all local team members in your tem. Means if your office is in Pune have team members who are from Pune and not members who have migrated from other states or cities. The reason of not having local team members is the real reason why most people leave the company.

Believe me friends people leave not because they are not happy with job, profile or salary but because the Managers make comments about the in time and out time of member, taking holiday or half day for birthday, marriage/death of relative even neighbors etc. Local people have to do because he has a social life. Migrated people are mostly without family and are staying alone or with friends. They do not have any social life; since they are miles away from their hometown they have excuses of distance for every social obligation. Also since they do not have any thing to do at home they sit till later nights and also come to office on weekdays and holidays as being at home they will get bored and at office they get free phone/ internet to chat with their families back in their hometown, free tea coffee , Air condition etc. This helps them save their money. Also when they go on leave it is for months and local employee have to do overtime to do his part of work.

The problem starts when Manager gives examples of the migrated members to others local members like he sits late, doesn’t take holidays/ half days frequently, come even on holidays and weekends etc. Which hurts the local member has even if he wants to he cannot give excuse to escape from his social obligation as he is present in the city. This spoils his relation with friends, wife, parents, family etc. So an employee tries to move to a company were he will considered human and not machine. An excuse is given of better pay, company etc. Everyone knows that how much pathetic and idiot might be the Manager the company will never listen against the manger. So the members leaves the company without ant comments about the manager.

To be contd……

Hi A good attempt to put forward your personal observations and opinions. But it should not be conclusion. Further try to think about the other side of the issue also.
From India, New Delhi
Thanks for your valuable comments.
Friend the other side is migrated members should be put in one team. This team should be only of migrated team members only, no local members.
Let them prove to company and management that they are loyal and dedicated which in reality is not true. As 90 % late sitting members are not local and they are doining their personal work more than companies work.Let the locals have a peaceful environment to work for.
This way the point you wish to raised is the reason why people migrate to cities will be solved and also we can have a stable and dedicated team, with less members leaving the team.
At the end of Day having a team to support the company and save our job is more important than having feelings and sympathy towards the people who are migrating to cities.

I agree with you Shoeb - most of the members sitting late in the office do their personal work OR chat with **** which the managers doesnt know.
And when the members are actually required to work all the members work as a team and not only the members who are sitting late all the time.

From India
Thanks & appreciated ......Can you please elaborate on the last sentence.
If you see topic which, I am addressing here is very delicate and most of the time no team members speak against it. They quietly move on to other job.
Team always works as team. It is one team but friend during appraisals people who come on time go on time, do their work sincerely suffer they are underrated, not promoted and hike in salary and bonus is compare to people who are in good books of the management who sit late and do nothing benefit from it the most.
Because in major of the companies such late sitters or you can call them "White collar bonded labour" are favorites of the management. Friend for the sake of proving that we are professional and loyal to company we often support the move of the management right. But deep within inside our heart we know What is right and wrong.We do not say or expressed is the reality.

I think it is totally immature to distinguish the performance of employees based on localities and non-localities and the reasons stated are not the only ones for which employees leave an organization.
From India, Pune
I think you have not taken in the right spirit.I feel you yourself are an migrated person.Thats why such a kiddish remark.You are taking it personally.

What, I said just try and see that. Is is not true that when you are away from home you try calling,smsing or chatting with the friends and family back in your hometown.

Tell me one good reason which is not true, don't outsiders go for leave more than 10 days, don't they spend time on phone and chat , they sit late becoz they have no one waiting at their home, in office they get free phone and internet, use office courier to send and receive personal parcels and mails,work on lesser salary as back in their hometown they will get lesser than this, not asking for overtime other wise phone and internet which they are using free will be curbed. But when you are in hometown you do attend social life and take holidays/half day on wedding,engagement,death,visit to hospital etc.Because you cannot give excuse that you are not in town.

Take this in right spirit, think and understand. What is said is from years of experience and experiments. I am not a poilitican to be bias on migrated people neither I am discriminating. I just feel that everyone have the right to work.

Just becoz of few people why locals who have family and social life should suffer.Humanity is more important and shoudl not suffer for the benefits of the few.

JSF35 & Hiten Parekh can you justify your remark and prove that whatever i mentioned is wrong.
It is easy to follow the crowd and do what pleases masses. DO you know that many people do not like cricket but they watch it because they do not want to be left out and stand apart from crowd and expressed their own choice. They simple follow what others majority of people are doining.
Read the story below. Just do not follow the crowd blindly stand up for what is right.

Train Track and Children

The story given here is quite interesting and really gives us an insight into DECISION MAKING.

A group of children were playing near two railway tracks, one still in use while the other disused. Only one child played on the disused track, the rest on the operational track.

The train came, and you were just beside the track interchange. You could make the train change its course to the disused track and saved most of the kids

However, that would also mean the lone child playing by the disused track would be sacrificed. Or would you rather let the train go its way?

Let's take a pause to think what kind of decision we could make...



Analyse the situation...



Think and reflect...



Decided your answer!!!!...



Now ... go ahead...








Most people might choose to divert the course of the train, and sacrifice only one child. To save most of the children at the expense of only one child was rational decision most people would make, morally and emotionally.

But, have you ever thought that the child choosing to play on the disused track had in fact made the right decision to play at a safe place?

Nevertheless, he had to be sacrificed because of his ignorant friends who chose to play where the danger was.

This kind of dilemma happens around us everyday. In the office, community, in politics and especially in a democratic society, the minority is often sacrificed for the interest of the majority, no matter how foolish or ignorant the majority are, and how farsighted and knowledgeable the minority are.

The child who chose not to play with the rest on the operational track was sidelined. And in the case he was sacrificed, no one would shed a tear for him.

To make the proper decision is not try to change the course of the train because the kids playing on the operational track should have known very well that track was still in use, and that they should have run away if they heard the train's sirens.

If the train was diverted, that lone child would definitely die because he never thought the train could come over to that track! Moreover, that track was not in use probably because it was not safe.

If the train was diverted to the track, we could put the lives of all passengers on board at stake! And in your attempt to save a few kids by sacrificing one child, you might end up sacrificing hundreds of people to save these few kids

While we are all aware that life is full of tough decisions that need to be made, we may not realize that hasty decisions may not always be the right one. "Remember that what's right isn't always popular... and what's popular isn't always right."

Everybody makes mistakes; that's why they put erasers on pencils

Friend, I have given my view with a reason and justification. Why don't you do the same.
It is easy to comment by seeing TV. That this country is goining to dogs or Dhoni could have played better.If you are really want to change things or make something you have to support that with hardwork,reason and justification and you have to do that. Passing comments is a shortcut to escape from reality.
don't take this personally.Spend some time and efforts to put up what you feel.
Take my suggestion in true spirit.
