The questionnaire sought information on areas such as employee strength, salary structure, training days, tenure of top management, etc. Of the 200 companies, 49 companies participated in the first phase. Out of these, 38 companies were then shortlisted for the second round i.e., the employee survey based parameters like Total Employee Size, Average Tenure of Senior Management, Total Average Training, Retention Rate, and Average Salary Hike.
