Survey Insights

 India Inc. Employees

By FYI & Mindmap
With the Coronavirus having irrevocably changed the nature of work and the state of mind of India Inc. employees, FYI, a health-tech community product, undertook a first of its kind survey** conducted by MindMap Advance ResearchCorporate Health Responsibility (CHR) emerges as a mandatory ask from employers, akin to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). An overwhelming 93% of employees are stressed about returning to the office, reveal the survey findings announced today. 
Here are some key insights of the survey:
  • 99% employees want employers to be held accountable for CHR, akin to CSR
  • 85% expect their office spaces to be sanitized before they return
  • 83% employees want employers to seek innovative solutions to monitor and safeguard their health
  • 96% employees will comply with health initiatives of employers regardless of the inconvenience
As India Inc. prepares for offices to open post the lockdown, the survey assesses the anxiety level of employees and records a strong desire to do what’s right by their co-workers by complying to new health monitoring compliances, along with a high degree of awareness of changes in routine that await them. The survey strongly suggests that employees expect their employers to take responsibility to ensure a healthy and safe environment for them.
A post pandemic world offers employers an opportunity to win the hearts of their employees and customers by deploying stronger solutions for the overall wellbeing of their workforce, said a majority of the respondents. While 81% of employees strongly feel this will be the case, 16% said that this has always been an expectation, regardless of recent events.
Covid-19 has left all of India Inc.’s professionals anxious on several accounts. While a majority, 59% are concerned about their health, 25% said they are anxious about their financial situation, while 16% fear that the crisis will be a prolonged one and this uncertainty lends to high anxiety. 
“It may be an understatement to say that the COVID-19 pandemic has transformed the way we live and work. This event has very quickly served as a tipping point to unprecedented change in the mind-set and attitudes of people, to both life and work. Our survey informs India Inc. of the new priorities they would need to juggle when it comes to the health and safety of their employees. India Inc. employees are clearly stressed on account of their health and that needs to be managed on priority. Evidence supports the fact that happier and secure employees are more productive and perform their jobs better while those under stress, perform worse”, said Yeishan Goel, Cofounder, FYI.
**Survey Respondents: FYI undertook this survey in the last week of April 2020. The survey was conducted by MindMap Advance Research with 560 India Inc. employees across small, medium and large enterprises in major metro cities of Delhi-NCR, Mumbai and Bengaluru. Of these employees, 85% were male and 15% were female.
