New Delhi: In a contrast to the gloomy sentiment in the US, Indian executives have higher morale and are more satisfied with their current positions, a survey has said.

According to an Executive Quiz by global executive recruitment firm Korn/Ferry International, close to 50 percent of the Indian executives surveyed are either extremely or satisfied with their current position compared to just 37 percent in the US.

"Despite the lackluster job market (Indian) executives are happy with their jobs, have high employee morale and trust for corporate leadership. There was a 10 percent variation that was seen with the satisfaction levels in their current position where 37 percent were satisfied in the US and 47 percent in India," the survey stated.

In terms of employee morale within their company, 79 percent of Indian executives said it was 'good' or 'outstanding', followed by 'fair' by 21 percent but no one said it was poor.

However, 45 percent of employed executives in the US said the morale was either 'fair' or 'poor' followed by 55 percent who said 'good' or 'outstanding', the survey revealed.

"In this economic environment, it is heartening to see Indian executives are showing positive signs across parameters such as trust, employee morale and aspirations to climb corporate ladder," Korn/Ferry International in India Managing Director Deepak Gupta said.
