More than half of the working adults globally are concerned about losing their job in the next 12 months, including 57 per cent in India, but more than two-thirds are hopeful that their employers will help them retrain for new employment opportunities, a global survey showed on Wednesday.
The survey, released at the World Economic Forum’s ‘Jobs Reset Summit’ being held online, also showed wide variations between countries, while an average of three in four workers in Russia feared job losses, it was just one in four in Germany.
In India, nearly 57 per cent of respondents said they are ‘concerned’ about their jobs — over 25 per cent are ‘very concerned’ and 31 per cent are ‘somewhat concerned’.
