Only 24 per cent of employees in Indian organisations experience high levels of wellbeing at their workplaces, claimed a joint report by job search company Indeed and Forrester Consulting. The report revealed that more than three-quarters of all the employees in Indian businesses reported low levels of well-being.
However, this also emerged as a global trend, and survey results indicated that Indian organisations are almost at par with the global average of thriving employees – 25 per cent.
Employees with higher well-being are considered to be ‘thriving at work’. According to the University of Oxford Wellness Research Centre, such employees have the following defining characteristics or experiences – high levels of job satisfaction, low levels of work-related stress, high levels of positivity/happiness, and a clear sense of purpose in their role at the organisation.
Another interesting observation made out of this study is that there are fewer thriving employees from the Gen-Z cohort of 18 to 26-year-olds (20 per cent) when compared to the older Millennials (24 per cent) and Gen-X (27 per cent).

Additionally, over 88 per cent of people believe it’s important to find companies that care about how you feel.
