It’s that time of the year now, performance reviews are done, managers have given feedback, Appraisal ratings are in place and then wham! There are attritions 😊 lol… well jokes apart some companies in India have their appraisals in April – May – June & employees in India are likely to get an average salary hike of just 9.4 per cent this year, similar to last year, while key talent & resources are expected to get appraisals of as much as 15.4 per cent as companies increase focus on performance.

So, I have a question to ask. Were you happy with your appraisal results? If yes. Then that’s great and you could continue with your work and have a successful career ahead.

But if it’s a No, then you need to start thinking about a few things. With all this happening, you as an employee may at times start thinking of venturing out. The grass starts to look greener on the other side and you start having a sinking feeling of losing interest in your work. You then start thinking about quitting your job, but not sure you’re doing it for the right reason? You ponder over a thought that should you stay with your current employer for the time being?

More than anyone, you know what’s most important to you now and in the future, what you can & cannot tolerate, whether you can turn it around or walk away? But it will take a honest reflection on your situation and your priorities to gain this form of clarity and justice to what you seek?
