RDC is doing well in retaining talents - organization has already made a shift to Talent Mgt and Employee Engagement. So results will be seen in near future.

Workplaces are changing. Cultures are evolving. The average employee today is different from his/her counterpart from a decade ago too? What is lacking and what does he/she need to keep in mind in todays working scenario

Organization Culture has made a drastic change now and they are looking for employees with right attitude than with right aptitude. Getting fit into any organization is a challenge to an average employee. Organization expectations will be always higher so the employees have to be competitive, innovative and up-to-date to survive.
