Mumbai, Mar 6 (UNI) US-based Johnson Controls today launched ''OXYGENZ'', its global online survey to assess optimum workspace and environment to be expected by future global workforce, at Welingkar Institute of Management and Research here.
Backed by a consortium of companies including British Petroleum (BP), BBC and research partner Haworth, the online survey will target undergraduates, universities and young workforce across industries on their expectations on work environment and spaces.
Trends revealed in the ongoing survey can be accessed by member companies and institutes for implementing changes to minimise employee turnover and frequent recruiting exercises.
''Human Resourse departments are not always suited to cater to fast changing expectations of Generation Y who are rejecting old norms. We believe findings of the survey will be especially useful to the IT, Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) and Knowledge Processs Outsourcing (KPO) companies in India, as they are facing employee turnover of upto 20 per cent,'' Ideation and Sustainibility, Haworth head Ravi Mani said.
Johnson Controls spokesperson Tania Chaplin said, ''We have shortlisted a number of universities and offices across the globe from the US to China and India with at least 1,000 participants in each country. Creative use of the findings could save companies not only on manpower costs but also space and maintainance of workspace.'' UNI ZC RN AK BD1715
