Job satisfaction levels also differ greatly between the two groups. The majority of competitive differentiators—40 percent—are very satisfied with their current jobs. If you combine CIOs who say they are very satisfied with those who satisfied, that number jumps to 76 percent.
In comparison, 57 percent of Indian CIOs who are considered cost centers by their business peers say they are not satisfied with their jobs or are satisfied, but are looking to move to another job.
It might not pay to be seen as competitive differentiator by your business, but it sure improves your sense of well-being.
