Before the Covid pandemic era, barely 6% -7% of techies in Kerala quit their jobs every year but now it has become over 20%. In cities like Bengaluru, the pre-employment rate was 12% -15%, whereas the rate could be seen an increase to 25% -30%. The attrition rate in MNCs has gone a level high where companies are forced to increase their salary to a vast and varying amount.

During the Covid period, not only was India not lagging behind but also production was increasing to a greater extent. far behind in software products or services production increased. With that, more projects came from all over the world and started to cumulate which lead to more labor needs in each company.

All those who had previously turned down the offer due to the difficulty of shifting their life to another state even if they got a higher paying job. When the work-from-home facility was largely encouraged during the pandemic time, employees are now accepting the offers from companies across the country or even abroad willingly.
