We spoke to the HR person who had just completed his major project of Independence Day celebration.

He said, “Yes, this is true that attrition is showing upward trend. It is surprising that employees are looking for job change not for ‘Better Opportunities’ but they want to meet the basic expense of commute to the office.”

He also added, “Our IT experts are working to add a category – ‘Deal with rising Fuel Prices’ in the Separation Portal of our company.

We sincerely wish our ex-employees get enough renumeration to meet their fuel expenses. This will help them in focusing on their career in turn helping them to grow professionally.”

When we asked if the company has any plan to control the attrition rate; HR person said enthusiastically, “Oh yes, we have a special guest for our upcoming Town Hall who will be addressing Mitrons on how fuel price rise will benefit them in 2022. We are hoping that the trick will work this time too.”
