High employee attrition is an issue at information technology (IT) service companies.The rate tends to peak towards the first half of the financial year, especially the first quarter. And, many other factors are seen to be influencing this spike. TQS is also suffering from the brunt of attrition. Till the last year the company was not taking it too seriously, but after losing on top talent this year the company management has taken strict measures.
Sanil Jain, the CEO of TQS is not unaware of the attrition rate and has vowed to make all code made by its developers public, in news papers on websites, on the company website and even on job portals. This according to him will make the companies poaching his resources aware about the pathetic and useless code his developers have written. Just after Sanil made this announcement today morning, more than 200 people have already withdrawn their resignation letters and have committed their long term future to the company.
TQS HR department has its task cut out for the next quarter when they will pull out each developer’s code and post it on various job portals. There are rumors that the work to be carried out by the HR department in next quarter is more than the HR department carried out in 10 years of existence of TQS. Developers are also too worried and they are doing all things possible to rectify their mistakes in code and also improve all their codes with the help of ‘Google baba’. The developers who were too laid back and just did minor changes in every release, are now working extra hard on the quality of the code as well as meeting the deadlines. Seems like Sanil has killed two birds with a single stone.
