We are thrilled to have you join us today, welcome to Valiant CEO Magazine’s exclusive interview! Let’s start off with a little introduction. Tell our readers a bit about yourself and your company.
Piyush Yadav: I’ve got a major in Communications and MBA in Finance. The purpose of Ask Any Difference is to help people know the difference between the two terms of interest. We write on the topics: Food, Technology, Business, Pets, Travel, Finance, and Science. A few years ago we as a company were searching for various terms and wanted to know the differences between them. Ever since then, we’ve been tearing up the trails and immersing ourselves in this wonderful hobby of writing about the differences and comparisons. We’ve learned from on-the-ground experience about these terms specially the product comparisons. This is the site where we share everything we’ve learned
Who has been the most influential person(s) in your life and how did they impact you? How did that lead to where you are today?
Piyush Yadav: My father. He taught me the value of independence and self-reliance and to never doubt myself. And it seems to have worked out okay so far.
2020 was a challenging year for all of us, particularly for businesses. How did the pandemic impact your business? Please list some of the problems that you faced, and how you handled them.
Piyush Yadav: The pandemic hit India incredibly hard and as our infrastructure isn’t as reliable as it is in the US, we had to terminate the contracts of our home based writers and outsource the work abroad. It was a difficult choice to make, but the only one I could make if the business was going to survive.
The pandemic led to a myriad of cultural side effects, including one that was quite unexpected that is informally known as “The Great Resignation”. Did this widespread trend affect you in any way?
Piyush Yadav: It didn’t have any impact on the Indian workforce or the companies that we had outsourced our contracts to.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 4 million Americans quit their jobs in July 2021. How do you feel about this trend? Explain.
Piyush Yadav: It was, and is workers trying to fight for equality and fair pay for a fair day’s work. The trend will spread to India, and when it does, we’ll have to face it. Luckily, the companies that we’ve outsourced our work to don’t seem to have been affected by it.
According to a study by Harvard Business Review, Employees between 30 and 45 years old have had the greatest increase in resignation rates, with an average increase of more than 20% between 2020 and 2021. That can be quite an alarming rate. What advice would you share to increase employee retention?
Piyush Yadav: Pay a living wage, ensure that there are better working conditions. It’s the only way to stop workers leaving.
According to a Nature Human behavior study, In 2020, 80% of US workers reported feeling that they have too many things to do and not enough time to do them – a phenomenon known as “time poverty”. What is your take on the work-life balance? Explain.
Piyush Yadav: I’ve never really thought about it, as I’ve always been too busy working toward my dream to have a “life” outside of work. My work is my life, ad I expect my employees to feel the same way as I do.
A more recent survey by Joblist asked about 3,000 respondents if they’re actively thinking about leaving their job. That survey found that 73% of 2,099 respondents who answered this question on their employment plans are considering quitting. How are you preparing for the future to counter this potentially persistent problem?
Piyush Yadav: By outsourcing everything that we do and letting an agency handle it for us. It’s the only way to face the future, but making sure that someone pays your workers properly.
Thank you for all that, our readers are grateful for your insightful comments! Now, if the Great Resignation isn’t your greatest concern, what is the #1 most pressing challenge you’re trying to solve in your business right now?
Piyush Yadav: Finding the right agencies to outsource our content to and making sure that we get value for money for it. That’s the only thing that I worry about now that we’re all working for home.
Before we finish things off, we do have one last question. If you had $10 Million Dollars to spend in one day, what would you spend it on?
Piyush Yadav: I’d invest it, retire and find out what free time was all about.
