文章原始标题:I keep hearing how work ethic in India is poor compared to the US, Japan, or China. How accurate is this claim, and if so, what are some examples?

内容简介:印度的职业道德,你在开玩笑吗? 让我们来看看吧。

Work ethics in India, are you joking? let’s have a look at it?
* Workers will never inform that he is not coming to work. In most of the time when you call, he won’t answer at all.
* When worker says reaching in 2 minutes means, he will not be there before an hour. If he says he is almost there means he is 5 kms away.
* If he come to know that you are working with MNC then he assumes that it is his fundamental right to over charge you because you are having easy money by sitting in front of computer. (this was told to me on my face)
* Will appear for work at 10am or sometime 11am, takes lunch break of 2 hours at 1pm and then pack up by 5.30pm or 6 pm.
* If you try to micro manage them, they will trouble you more.

印度的职业道德,你在开玩笑吗? 让我们来看看吧。
* 员工绝不会通知他不来上班。大多数时候,你打电话给他,他都不会接。
* 如果员工说2分钟内到达,那么他在1小时内都不会到。如果他说他快到了,那就意味着他离这里还有5公里远。
* 如果他知道你在跨国公司工作,他会认为他有权收更高的费用,因为你坐在电脑前赚钱很容易。(这话是他当面对我说的)
* 早上10点或11点上班,下午1点午休2个小时,下午5:30或6:00收拾东西。
* 如果你试图对他们微观管理,他们会给你带来更多麻烦。

What happened in MNCs……
* Leave home at 9 am. If bachelor then 8 am:)
* Go to gym, read 3–4 online news portal, facebook, WhatsApp. oh, it’s 11am now.
* Touch base with colleagues over Tea/Coffee/Smoking.
* Let’s check official email now and plan for the day. oh, 12.30pm
* Let’s go for lunch with group of people. During lunch discuss all the burning issues on current affairs, company politics, sports and what not. Update facebook and wait for likes/comments:)
* Return to desk by 1.30–2pm.
* Start replying the pending official emails and figure out how the tasks can be moved to others head. oh, 3–3.30 pm.

* 早上9点离开家,如果是单身,早上8点离家。
* 去健身房,阅读3-4个新闻网站,脸书,WhatsApp。然后现在已经11点了。
* 与同事一起喝茶、喝咖啡或吸烟。
* 现在让我们检查一下公司邮件,为今天做好准备。哦,已经中午12点半了。
* 我们一起去吃午饭吧。午餐时间讨论时事、公司政治、体育等热点话题。在脸书上更新内容,然后等待被点赞或评论。
* 下午1点半至2点回到办公桌。
* 开始回复未处理的公司电子邮件,并想着如何将任务移交给其他人。哦,已经下午3点到3点半了。

* Let’s go for a Tea or smoking, it has been headache:)
* Return to desk by 4pm. start planning for meetings scheduled with overseas teams or clients.
* Work on deliverable for overseas team otherwise, so now actual work starts.
* OMG, its 9pm now. Completely tired, let’s go home.
* Reach home completely exhausted by 10–10.30pm
What do your family think…….”Bechara din bhar kaam karke thak gaya hai” (tired of working for entire day)
In India office is main life and time after office is bonus time. Sometime people sacrifice the bonus time as well by working beyond office hours. Some of them even skip important family matters for office work.

* 我们去喝杯茶或者抽根烟吧,头一直很疼。
* 下午4点前回到了办公桌,开始计划与海外团队或客户的会议。
* 为海外团队提供可交付的作品,所以实际上是现在开始工作。
* 我的天,现在已经晚上9点了,我们回家吧。
* 在晚上十时至十时三十分到达家中时已筋疲力尽

This you will never see in US, Japan or China.
In these countries, work is means to earn money so that they can fulfil the requirements in life. They will never sacrifice family matters for office (no matter how important the issue is). They manage their time in office very efficiently and productively. But in India people lose most of the office hours in being socialize and then they over stay in office to makeup the lost time in expense of family time.
Guys, don’t take it personally, but it is fact for most of the cases..

I watched some guys surfacing a road once in India. There was a man in charge, a man driving a road roller, a man holding a tar bucket, 2 men with woven baskets carrying the stones, a man with a shovel filling the baskets and another spreading the stones. They worked in sequence. The 4 people involved in moving the stones would cover a section about 20m long, roller guy would drive over it, tar man would tar it, and roller guy would flatten it again whilst supervisor dude watched and made the occasional comment. Progress was slow. In Europe or the US or China, you'd have more mechanization, fewer workers and a faster pace.

* My last company started keeping (free) biscuits, fruit juice, soft drinks in the cafeteria for employees. Many employees stopped having breakfast at home, came to office hungry and feasted on packets of free biscuits and milk from the coffee machine. After some time, people started sneaking stuff out in their bags. Friday afternoons especially, there would be no soft drinks left in the fridge because people would take them home to use as a mixer with drinks later.
* My last company (same as above) allowed work from home liberally. Needless to say, people stayed at home, but didn't do much work. Some would do household chores all day, some would go out with friends, some even got part time jobs on the sides.

Ronit Bhattacharjee ,庞巴迪运输有线网络工程师(2015年至今)
* 我的上一家公司开始在自助餐厅为员工提供(免费)饼干、果汁和软饮料。许多员工就不在家吃早餐,饿着肚子来办公室,享受着咖啡机里免费提供的饼干和牛奶。过了一段时间,他们开始偷偷把东西放进他们的包里。特别是星期五下午,冰箱里就没有任何软饮料了,因为他们会把这些带回家。
* 我的上一家公司(同上)允许在家工作。不用说,他们就呆在家里,但没有做很多工作。有些人整天做家务,有些人和朋友出去玩,有些人甚至兼职。

Work ethic in India is abysmall and many Indians who believe that our nation is super hard working should spend some time working abroad. I don’t know about the US or Japan but in the UK, working hours are usually 830 am – 5 pm. When you come to office at 830am, you are expected to leave all your emotional baggage at home and work for your yourself and your organisation to deliver better outcomes for both of you. When you leave at 5 pm, you are respected enough as an individual that even your boss’s boss will think three times before ringing you as they don’t want to disturb you in your private time.
I’ll give an example, I used to work at an engine overhauling facility and an Aerospace research company in India. My experience of the staff was that they were more interested in their collegue’s new phone or discussing their drunk weekend than actually doing work on a Monday morning.For the smokers, it was actually habitual to be out for a smoke break every half hour. Worst of all, not only was this accepted but you were supposed to learn and pick these habbits if you wanted a chance of success in the organisation. The issue I see is of struggling to have role models and constant need to please everyone which I shall expand upon in the next paragraph. Sure, there were many good people in the organisation and their work would be better than the rest but the benchmark was so low in terms of work ethic that it was not a challenging work environment for people seeking growth.

举个例子,我曾经在印度的一家发动机检修公司和一家航空航天研究公司工作。我对员工的经验是,他们更感兴趣的是同事的新手机或讨论他们喝醉的周末,而不是在周一早上开始工作。 对吸烟者来说,每半个小时抽一次烟其实是一种习惯。最糟糕的是,如果你想在公司中获得成功的机会,你不仅应该接受这一点,还应该学习并选择这些不良习惯。我看到的问题是挣扎着树立榜样,不断地需要取悦每一个人。当然,公司中有许多优秀的人才,他们的工作会比其他人做得更好,但基准在职业道德方面还是非常低,以至于对于追求成长的人来说,这不是一个具有挑战性的工作环境。

Can you imagine leaving office promptly at 5 pm in India? Never being disturbed in the evening and over the weekends? For some reason, I have observed that work to Indians seems to be a headache with everyone focussing on the salary day rather than the journey of producing something valuable from their precious invested time. As your boss disturbs you in the evenings and on the weekends, not only they have no respect for your personal life but slowly and steadily even you stop caring about everything that you loved doing. You forget that you are an individual before an employee. I see this culture of expectations, agreeableness (behaviour of trying to please people) and poor role models being the root cause for the poor work ethic in India or the poor productivity in general.


In India, work culture and attitudes towards roles and expected behaviours vary wildly in organizations. Quality of work culture is variable amongst smaller and larger firms, private and public firms and across other such boundaries. Publicly held company offices are infamous for lackadaisical staff, low empathy for customers or visitors, a lack of time consciousness, and so on. However, it seems that even employees in many well-known, privately held firms have terrible work ethics. Some examples are below:
* Broker for rental real estate doubles as “problem solver” for lazy landlords. Collect money from unsuspecting future tenants on the pretext of fixing a few things (civil/sanitation/electrical works) and pockets all the money, and takes a commission for helping the house hunting process. Lazy landlord doesn’t care whether tenant is happy but expects rent on time.

* 房地产租赁经纪人兼职为懒惰的房东解决问题。以修理一些东西(民用 / 卫生 / 电力)为借口,从毫无戒心的未来租户那里收钱,把所有的钱装进口袋,并收取帮助寻找房子的佣金。懒惰的房东不在乎房客是否满意,但要求房客按时交租。

* Technology professional/engineer in a company is asked to build a small software application which might take less than a few hours for a simple prototype. When assigned the task, messages his manager in a few minutes, with something like, “I tried it and it is not working”, and doesn’t respond to requests for more information on what exactly isn’t working. Within 15 minutes, gives up on the task. Marks 1 full day on his “time sheet” for this task that he gave up on in 15 minutes.

* 要求公司的技术人员 / 工程师开发一个小型的软件应用程序,而一个简单的原型可能需要不到几个小时的时间就可以完成。当分配任务时,他会在几分钟内给他的经理发信息,类似“我试过了,但是运行不了”之类的话,而且也不会对经理要求提供更多信息的请求做出回应,具体是什么运行不了。在15分钟内,就放弃了任务。然而在他的“时间表”上为这项他在15分钟内放弃的任务,做了整整一天的标记。

* Poor communication skills are among the other problems with numerous Indian engineers - especially those from smaller towns and rural settings. While this is understandable in case of engineers who come from non-English-speaking backgrounds, the problem is wider. Surprisingly, even many engineers from supposedly good colleges and well-to-do backgrounds are terrible at concise communication (both verbal and written). It is a sad thing that in this country of such potential, the vast majority of engineers cannot truly express themselves in a business-ready way.
* Entitlement - one of the biggest problems with Indian professionals, especially mid-level and senior levels. This is also a problems with professionals at the entry level, increasingly. Most of them are not motivated by the opportunity to solve interesting problems, nor are they enthused by the ability to get things done and best challenges. They’re mostly motivated by money. Even if the money is enough to take the discussion on money off the table, there is no end to the greed and entitlement, regardless of their mediocrity or their lack of success in endeavours.

* 许多印度工程师,尤其是来自小城镇和农村地区的工程师,面临的其他问题包括沟通能力差。虽然对于来自非英语背景的工程师来说,这是可以理解的,但问题更为广泛。令人惊讶的是,甚至许多来自名牌大学和富裕家庭背景的工程师,在简单沟通(包括口头和书面)方面上都很糟糕。在这个有着如此巨大潜力的国家,绝大多数工程师都不能真正地以一种商业化的方式表达自己,这是一件令人悲哀的事情。
* 权利——这是印度专业人员,尤其是中高级专业人员面临的最大问题之一。这也是入门级专业人士面临的问题,而且越来越多。他们中的大多数人并不是因为有机会去解决有趣的问题,也不会因为有能力去完成事情和面对挑战而充满热情。他们主要是为了钱。即使给的钱足够让他们不再讨论钱问题,但是贪婪和获取权利永无止境,无论他们是平庸还是缺乏努力。

Yes, these claims are accurate. Others have already given a very good answer to this question and pardon me if you feel I'm deviating from the issue, but I'd like to approach this question a little differently, trying to figure out the underlying reasons.
Yes, India doesn't meet the ethical standards of work set by the best, but why?
In my view, the comparison is a little unfair on Indians. Indians are asked to meet world-class standards across various Parameters, but are they given the same luxuries bestowed upon the people they are being compared to, they won't even accept these are luxuries.
Let me list out a few of these:
1 Paycheck- Indians are expected to do the same job, as a professional would do in the above mentioned countries who are paid tens of times more than what an Indian gets. Minimum wage in India, approximately $3 for women and $5.50 for men, Per Day. They are asking for $20 an hour these days in America the last time I heard.

Madhav Mall

Most white-collar workers with undergraduate degrees are offered $2,500 per annum to start with. This keeps a lot of people in the bounds of the vicious cycle of poverty.
A phrase Indians must have heard several times in a recent ad comes to my mind, Zada diya hai to kuch to zada milega na, Nai? (When you pay more, won't you want something extra?)
2 Workhours- A blue-collar job could include an 8–16 hours workdays, depending on various factors, and a 6 day workweek. Most White collar jobs have 48–60 hours workweek on the other hand. Overtimes could make it much worse and they do in most cases. That's just inhumane by some of European standards.
3 Education- The quality of education offered to people Ben mentions in his answer, is worse than what is offered in African countries, and that is by no means and exaggeration. In fact, most Indians are barely given literacy masquerading as Education. Almost all Higher Education institutes with the exception of IITs and IIMs are at the same standards honestly, leaving most Unskilled and Unemployable.
You ripe what you sow.

There is utter disregard of people working with you. It is in terms of not honoring your commitments, not arriving for meetings on time , taking unscheduled leaves and not communicating when others are waiting on you.
There is also not respecting other persons private space and constantly invading it by means of useless calls, emails and chats.
I have a person in my team to whom I have mentioned to be on schedule as the other members of the team are so as to not keep others waiting while he finishes his work. He constantly fails to be on time for office meetings. Some days he is nowhere to be seen and you are not able to contact him he comes up with a gem……..I had a fever last night and I overslept and my phone battery also died at the same time. How on earth all things happen at same time and multiple occasions?
There may be a small fraction of people doing it but it impacts the perception of the entire workforce.

在我的团队中有一个人,我已经向他提到过,要他和团队中的其他成员一样按时完成工作,这样就不会让其他人在他完成工作前等待了。他经常不准时参加办公室会议。有些日子他会突然不见,你也无法联系到他,然后他想到了一个点子... “我昨晚发烧了,睡过头了,手机电池也刚好没电了。”究竟所有的事情是如何在同一时间和不同场合发生的?

Pd Nb
Dealing with indian staff was living in hell! Systematic work was impossible because all activity was disrupted by pointless reviews and commentary that involved pointing with a pen as if going on a checklist. lazy managers who literally did nothing except watch from a short distance, yet order everyone to work 6 hours straight without break to cut down on time. Highly argumentative nobodies who would say “how do I know you are telling me the truth?” on an endless loop and never give up. Supervisors who were supposed to train new staff, but only gave tiny irrelevant jobs such as writing out notes about what was happening instead of engaging the workers in the task that needs to be done. Heavily inclined to lie and take lazy approaches, even when we were being screamed at by angry clients threatening to sue, they indians just said ‘we will look at it next time’. Unable to use my own personal initiative to get things done because it looked like i was skipping bureaucracy and breaking rules. Told me to do pointless tasks such as read emails for them, find phone numbers for them, and even wanted rehearsal of phonecalls.
If they dont like our attitude to them, screw them! I cant stand them anymore

Yes very much so. Only about 10% could be utterly honest and hard working in government departments and PSUs. Those in private organisations work very hard. it may be worth quoting a small anecdote .
two tigers escaped from a thick forest only to return after six months. One was almost in skin and bone just like a skeleton and the other was very fat , strong and well built, but badly bruised, with blood bleeding from face and all over. The first one explained that after escaping from the forest it ran to village after village and everywhere it was being driven away. With nothing to eat it made rounds and rounds and finally returned to the forest. The other one she initially escaped into a government office. At the end of office in the evening when everybody was going home she picked up the last man , dragged him into a corner and used to eat him. Nothing serious happened and nobody noticed.It went on and in from office to office but one she committed a blunder. the last man she picked up happened to be a ‘Chaiwala’ ,a tea-boy who supplies tea to all the employees at their desks. Suddenly it caught the attention of every one and they started searching for the killer. In the process she was caught almost killed, but luckily it escaped and entered into the forest once again.
when the officials were dying nobody cared. but when the ‘ Chaiwala’ died it came to everyone’s notice in the office, such is the importance of Chaiwala, tea, and tete-a- tete during tea time. Lunch break is officially for 30 minutes but actually about one hour and a half. Office timings are from 10 to 5 PM with half an hour lunch break but actually 11 to 4–00 Pm with more than one hour lunch break. every employee gets a bout 45 days leave officially per year but in reality with un official breaks they make it not less than 2 months per year. all this with regular holidays , along with Saturdays and Sundays. frequently agitations as a matter of right are made for’Less work, more pay, and immediate promotions’.

That is not 100% true, it varies from Region to region.
I have worked in Delhi NCR and Bangalore and if your question is for work Ethics is North India (Delhi NCR) then yes work ethic is poor but Bangalore is much better in that case.
Having spent more than 4 years working in different parts of India. I will talk about Delhi NCR, majority of people working in companies does not have that spirit to excel or creativity at all. You will always get people in your team/group who follows the path of buttering the leadership and involved more in bitching and all. Even the leadership wants such kind of people, thats why they survive.
But thats not the case if you talk about south India (Bangalore to be more precise), they are hard and smart workers and they focus more on results and performance rather than all these stuffs.

I do think that the Indian government and semi-government sector has serious and severe work ethic issues.. and in fact serious corruption issues as well.. people who are so secure in their jobs and positions that they work at a glacial pace and are in many cases very corrupt too, forms and procedures that are needlessly complicated and confusing, inflexible and sullen officers and so on. This includes the politicians, bureaucrats, state and central government employees, etc.
I have however had some very good experiences in the Indian private sector.. from getting work done by plumbers, carpenters, electricians in the unorganized sector, to interacting with and transacting with private banks, medical facilities, schools and so on. I have had companies that refunded all of my money when a task they contracted for did not go through, plumber and electricians who showed supreme passion for their work, doctors who took great care of my family members and charged a fraction of what an American hospital would charge, food delivery apps that deliver on time every time and so on.
Of course, enforcement of contracts and a speedy justice system would make things work even better in the private sector , and there are still many scams and instances of cheating and so on, still, the private organized and unorganized sectors do pretty good work in spite of the super slow legal system that is really ineffective in settling disputes.

Very True. All the above countries spend a long time pre-planning the job.
The chinese - female workers especially give at least three times more output than Indian ladies.
In USA there is no strict heirarchy, you can argue freely with your boss, he will not hold it against you.
The USA bosses do not like yes men, they want results.
In India, I am sorry to say most of the people survive by sucking up to their bosses with no work or responsibility. Look at the IAS/IPS officers, after passing such tough exams they mix khaini (tobacco) and hold spitoons for their bosses. eg Lallu prasad. etc. and not to forget corruption!!!

Hemant Kumar ,住在里约热内卢
在印度,我很遗憾地说,大多数人靠拍老板马屁而生存,没有任何工作或责任。看看印度行政服务部 / 印度警察局的官员,在通过很艰难的考试后,他们递给老板香烟,为老板拿着痰盂等等,还有不要忘记印度的腐败问题!!!

Ashish Monga , Hardware Development Engineer at Western Digital
No, I don’t completely agree to the claim. Following are a few points that drive work ethics in people in India as well around the world.
Money: Money has been a greatest motivating factor for many people around the world. Money is needed for everything. Unfortunately, employees in India are paid much less compared to those in US or Japan or China at least.
Love for work: Yes, Some people work for their love of work, other work for personal and professional fulfillment. Work is what adds meaning to their life. It is what excites them. Some people just like to fill their time with some activity.
Moral Values: A few people in India have been filled with moral values as to work honestly and effectively. They just tend to prove their worth and build an image about them.

Ashish Monga ,西部数码硬件开发工程师
不,我不完全同意这种说法。 以下是推动印度人和世界各地人们职业道德的几点要点:

Appreciation: People work to the best of their abilities and even more if they feel appreciated at the work.
Care: If u worry about your employee, support them, give them a medical insurance, bonuses etc they tend to care about the employer as well and work more efficiently. Ask them about their personal stuff, and they will never leave you.


Santosh Kumar , studied at Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra
You are comparing apples to oranges. US and Japan are mature economies. I have no direct experience with Chinese, but having seen them achieve, what they yave, I would say they are probably way ahead.
What are the factors underpinning low standards of work ethic?
Unorganised labour: most labour is unorganised-- not affiliated to a large corporation or organisation. When you hire from a reputed organisation, typically you can expect better work ethic.
Informal contracts: when you enter into an informal contract, you can expect the unexpected. Even formal contracts are difficult to enforce.
Vast variety and numbers: India is huge. Difficult to generalize. I have seen dedicated people among the most poor and underprivileged.
So think it over before you hire. Consult people. Have tight monitoring and oversight. I guarantee it will work.

U are 100% right. i have seen many central / state govt offices/ PSU.
* I had been to many govt offices- whole office is empty till 1030/11 am. but office starts at 0930 hrs. They leave by 4 pm.
* After coming, employees read magazines, papers
* Gossip hours in mobile/ phone/
* Go out for tea/ pan beeda/ lunch
* Go out to near by Post office, electricity office to pay bills.
* In 8 hours, they work just 2 hrs max.

Kancheepuram Narasimhan 、前飞机教官
百分百正确。我见过许多印度的中央 / 州政府办公室 / 公营事业。
* 我去过很多政府办公室,整个办公室到上午10点半/11点之前都是空的。但是上班时间写着9:30开始。但他们下午4点才开始上班。
* 员工上班了后,开始读杂志和报纸。
* 花大量时间在手机和电话上。
* 出去喝杯茶,吃顿饭。
* 到附近的邮政局、电力局缴交电费。
* 在8小时内,他们最多只工作2小时。

Work ethic is not good in India but that is not because there’s a problem on just one side. It's a multifarious issue - which includes lack of overall education, professionalism (from both sides - employers and employees), easy substitution, lack of proper laws and human rights practices - and years of corruption and red tapism.
The same Indian who is said to have a bad work ethic - when moves to foreign shores turns out to be one of the most bankable resources. Why?

Maharashtra tourism department (government!) sales fake tours and do not return money back to customers. This is GOVERNMENT touristic center.
Do you need more examples? What would you expect from other people in this case?
Some Indian guys said me that in the case of small fraud nobody will punish person, so they do whatever they want to.
I'm living here just 5 months… Software engineering companies, 3+ hotels, good restaurants - here you can find better work ethic. Better, but not always good.

Anastasiya Solodkaya
你还需要更多的例子吗? 在这种情况下,你对其他人还抱有什么期望?
我只在印度住了5个月... 软件工程公司,住过3家酒店,不错的餐馆——在这些地方你才可以找到更好的职业道德的人。但更好,并不总是好的。

Vivek Kushwaha , works at Tata Consultancy Services
Disgusting!! Yes that's how it is. I guess you have now got pretty much examples from previous answers to relate upon. On the contrary there are some people a mere 10% on a rough estimate that do care about work ethics, but our society works in such a way that it is kind of normalized as a regular habit. No one cares about any ethics at all leave aside the work ethics.

Vivek Kushwaha ,在塔塔咨询服务公司工作
真恶心!是的,就是这样。我想你们现在已经从以前的答案中找到了很多相关的例子。相反,粗略估计,只有10% 的人关心职业道德,但这就是我们的社会运作的方式,这是一种常态化的习惯。 没有人关心任何道德,更不用说工作道德了。

Certainly some areas are still poor and not as progressive, However consider that India has nuclear capability, and many Indians live overseas and are highly skilled - Doctors, Scientists, Engineers filling the gaps in many Western Countries, plus the USA Australia and New Zealand.So I would say the Comment is too Generalised and not accurate in part

I do not think so. As far as I understand , It is the motivation. US and Chinese are more motivated because they think they only have one life and they are in rush to work (earn money )and enjoy the only life. Indians are different.

Quora User 现居住于加拿大蒙特利尔QC
我不这么认为。据我所知,是因为动力。美国人和中国人更有动力,因为他们认为自己只有一种生活方式,他们急于工作(赚钱) ,用于享受唯一的生活。而印度人则不同。

Having spent years in India, I’m afraid to say that yes, work ethic is tenuous.Fun examples.Had a mason working on my bathroom. Vanished one day. Showed up almost a week later with his head shaven.
