Amid Worsening Air Quality In Delhi-NCR, Corporate Executives Are Refusing Lucrative Job Offers

Increasingly toxic air quality in and around Delhi is forcing some senior corporate executives to decline job offers in the national capital region, according to executive search companies.

Korn Ferry, EMA Partners, Hunt Partners, Transearch and Global Hunt say that while pollution had become an active point of discussion in CXO job searches last year itself, every third CXO they’ve been approaching lately is reluctant to accept a job offer in Delhi-NCR.

Instead, top-level executives are seeking opportunities in cities such as Mumbai, Pune and Bengaluru. “Delhi has five seasons now, the fifth being the ‘pollution season’, and search firms including ours see a drop in interest around this time for positions in Delhi,” said Uday Chawla, managing partner at Transearch.
