INDIA Inc – What’s going on with Work-Life Balance?
I had a candid discussion with an old friend over coffee today. He didn’t sound fun at all – am mentioning that since he was one of the most lively people I ever knew my entire life.
He went on to narrate his ordeal of not being able to manage work and personal life. His manager would call him at any point of night, would send emails and expect him to answer them in middle of the night.
This brings me to think about this issue more and share my thoughts about it.
It’s important for Corporations and Managers to understand that HOW employees spend their time from 6 to 9 actually impacts HOW they perform during 9 to 6.
Do not push them to give away their personal space – it won’t help anyone.
If calling/texting/emailing people late at night is a norm with you – you seriously need to relook at HOW you are structured as an organization.
If you are unable to get tasks accomplished during normal office hours – your work system is flawed – better fix that than wearing your employees out!
STOP getting into personal time of your employees – for they work so that they can have a GOOD LIFE and not otherwise!
It’s for a reason that many countries have LAW around this – employer CANNOT contact employees after a certain time in the day.
But How about India? Where are we heading?
