I hope these might be of help to a certain extent.

Some of the control measures that can be taken are:

- Having a well-designed and dynamic Compensation and Benefits system which is highly competitive.

- Providing opportunities for further growth in the organisation via career planning / succession planning.

- Develop a highly conducive and pro-active work culture in the organisation where openness, creativity and commitment are valued.

Simply speaking, show the employee a clear career growth, start taking employees views for making decisions and update them about the training calendar (without participants list)

This should be taken up right at the top.

Wat are the views of our friends on line here?

We apply various methods as it is quite difficult to provide a single solution to such a fluid topic. We have adapted conscious methods of recognition following forums of employee engagement

a. Employee communications - our various programs to reach out our employees support two way communications, an open global exchange program where employees can interact being ambassadors of the business unit to share best practices.

b. Employee engagement activities - we invited our employees to suggest, formulate and propagate various platforms where they can demonstrate their talents, share knowledge and accomplishments of their own stature

c. Employee recognition programs - our cavalcade of performance management program includes managing talent pool, high achievers, toprankers, innovators which paves the way for growth and various means of recognitions.

Best wishes
