IT firms battling attrition of project managers
Bangalore: TCS, Infosys, Wipro and other IT firms are facing difficult situations in dealing with renewed demand for offshore outsourcing as there is a rise in the attrition rate among project managers. Mostly, these project managers are experienced between three to five years and were handling critical delivery teams for top customers, reports Devina Sengupta and Pankaj Mishra of the Economic Times.

Some companies are reeling under the pressure of dealing with higher attrition levels at a stage where technology firms are hiking salaries and incentives of software engineers. The authorities of IT companies fear that an attrition rate as high as 40 percent will disrupt ongoing engagements.

"Customers want commitment about retention of these project managers. At best, we can offer them 15 to 20 percent retention hikes, but what can you do when multinationals like Accenture and Cognizant are wooing them with around 40 percent salary hikes," said a senior executive of a mid-tier Indian outsourcing firm.

According to Nasscom, the Indian IT industry will absorb 90,000 employees this year and the total IT workforce will come to around 2.3 million. "Project managers attract junior members of their teams, and get salary hike of around 40 percent while changing jobs," said Kunal Banerji, Chief Executive of Absolute HR International, India. Some of them are also disappointed at new promotion policies at employers such as Infosys, and are quitting for better roles.

Demand for project management skills, which is still scarce in the country, is driving the attrition. "Good project management talent with significant experience of handling different types of projects and clients is hard to come by, and hence the demand for such resources," said Karthik Ananth, director at Zinnov Management Consulting. IT companies have begun with the process of hiring. Infosys launched its 'Green Channel' initiative for wooing back the talent, smaller rivals such as MphasiS have launched a programme called 'Homecoming' for hiring back the employees who left the company during past few months.

7: Just a quarter ago, all these firms looked at project managers as useless guys with no technical skill. Now there is demand for project managers as trouble started with attrition and new work.

I companies like Techmahindra project manager with technical certifications were are also fired kust because they are non maharashtrian.

Techmahindra HR in collaboratio nwith marathi middle managment of Techmahindra Pune spoiled careers of hundreds of non maharashtrians in the name of expectation mismatch.
Non locals exmployees were replaced with locals and moved arbitrarilty into a pool called CWB by RMG head LK Bhatia (a highly fanatic person) and using bogus mechanism false evidence was gathered that those people are not skilled and Then they were issued termination letters so that they dont get job any where.

Tech mahindra recruits people with flashy designation like sr project manager, program manager, program director, architech and no one gets work and roles related to his/her designation

Most of the basic project management is done by marathi senior project managers who hold people control and form company wide cartels and controls people's promotions and growth. many outsider careers are spoiled when they unwittingly join TechM and are held prisoner by the local middle management cartels which.

15: Indian HR is completly failed on all the grounds.

They are getting all the exposure and power but they are not able to help employees as well as organization.Compnies need to change there HR teams and try to think about the issues employees are facing.A happy employee can contribute a lot in company progress a person leaving a company means company is not able to cope up with his normal demands.

23: This is because the HR people are very transactional in nature. Where is the strategic approach. They tend to be penny wise pound foolish. They loose a lot money by attrition. They have no imagination as they think their job ends with 'Hiring by the truckloads'. High time they thought different
