About 81 per cent of employees in India have confidence in their organisations, reveals a recent research conducted by the Kenexa Research Institute (KRI).

The results from a randomly selected group of over 16,000 workers from 12 countries indicate that employees in India have the highest level of confidence in their organisations followed by those in the US (76 per cent), Brazil (75 per cent), and Russia and Canada (both 74 per cent). Employees in Japan have the lowest levels of organisational confidence (46 per cent).

The research indicates that Indians have confidence in their organisations' future (83 per cent), believe their organisations are managed effectively (84 per cent) and feel that the products and services are of high quality (78 per cent).

The results from India indicate that approximately four out of five employees feel that they are not at risk of being laid off and approximately three out of four believe there is a promising future for them at their organisations. However, Indian employees are slightly less positive about their current employer helping to prepare them with the necessary skills for the future (72 per cent).

"The levels of optimism among the workers in India are quite high. In fact, across the 12 countries we studied, the results from India achieved the highest rank. Indian workers are very optimistic about the future of their organisations, their management and the products that they produce. The vast majority does not have fear of losing their jobs, and for those who do lose their jobs there is confidence in being able to find another," said Jeffrey Saltzman, industrial psychologist and principal, Kenexa.

The study was part of a larger quarterly study that Kenexa undertakes to measure business conditions in major markets. Kenexa, a US-based provider of talent management and retention solutions, has campuses in Hyderabad and Visakhapatnam.
