Salary rises should be a pleasant relief for employees in the middle of a turbulent moment. When the growing cost of people is combined with record-high attrition rates, it might be a double-edged sword for employers, according to Nitin Sethi, partner and CEO of Aon’s Human Capital Solutions in India.

Sethi went on to say that the economic recovery is fueling this trend, as is the necessity for enterprises to invest in new-age competencies in order to develop a resilient workforce.
