This year the research indicates that the IT sector has not only been able to sustain the growth in engagement scores over the last year but also has seen a steady increase since 2018. This increase can be attributed to a continued focus on fairness, respect, and collaboration in the workplace.

With several new jobs openings, each with a specific niche to thrive in, the IT sector is booming. The foundation of everything at work originates from employee trust in their work and the people they work with, even though leadership effectiveness and culture fit have paved the road to developing a wonderful workplace culture. This requires an in-depth examination of what employees anticipate from their leaders in terms of enhancing the value of the work they do and how they see themselves fitting into the larger picture. This in-depth analysis provides the key to understanding “The It Factor” in IT workplaces.
Workplace culture has become paramount for IT & IT-BPM sector, it is imperative for leaders to recognize the key differentiators and the several challenges faced by the employees in the workplace. Organizations have constantly been making efforts to strengthen the perception of equity and impartiality at work, however, this perception is driven by egalitarian treatment at work and the culture of impartiality has seen the most increase but equity in terms of salary and rewards has gained less ground. There still exists a gap in fair pay and fair profit sharing with the workforce. For creating a fair workplace Leaders must ensure, keeping fairness at the forefront of their organizational values and building a culture of zero- tolerance toward unfair treatment. To foster the best workplaces, there are 3 key differentiators – employee benefits, caring work environment, employee growth, and autonomy.

Despite of uncertain global scenario, the IT industry has consistently augmented the growth of India’s knowledge economy.
