The employees who work in the IT companies are now looking for the new employment opportunities and shifting to the other organizations. It was trapped that now demand is increased and new opportunities are available in the market place, which attract employees, especially those working in IT sector.
The attrition rate has been increased in the large size IT companies during July- September, 2013 and according to the experts , this trend may continue and going forward.
It has been observed that the demand was more or less stagnant and even declining for some players for the last 2 years but now demand is increasing and thus there are some people who are shifting their jobs.
