Freedom to innovate and positions/designations are pointed out as the key factors luring top talent to startups, by nearly 60 per cent of the respondents to the TimesJobs.com survey.
The attraction of having a position of power and of being in a leadership role is the maximum at the middle level. 65 per cent organizations said that maximum talent movement is at the middle level and 55 per cent of middle level managers are attracted by the designations offered, TimesJobs.com revealed. The experience range of these high-value job-hoppers lies between 5-10 years, said 48 per cent of the survey. The fact that middle level employees are getting to exercise leadership positions at start-ups is the biggest factor driving them to leave reputed & established organizations.
