As per Steelcase Growth Market Research, the burgeoning middle-class growth will pose the biggest challenge for Indian workplaces by 2030. India’s middle-class growth is expected to accelerate and reach 475 million by 2030. This number consists of mainly India’s Gen Y post 80s and 90s who mix traditional values with a Western outlook. For this younger generation, the work they do is as important as the reputation of the company and the salary paid. Hence, to retain the younger generation, progressive workplace plays a key role, in helping to retain and attract these valuable workers.
