Though the concept of work-life balance is spoken about a lot, it is hardly applied in today’s working environment. However, an Indore-based company has given a perfect example of work-life balance. It starts issuing a warning on employees desktop screens after their shifts are over.
The post was shared by HR Tanvi Khandelwal who is currently working at SoftGrid Computers.
“This is not a promotional and imaginary post !,” she wrote at the beginning of her post.
“This is the reality of our office !! SoftGrid Computers My employer supports #WorkLifeBalance. They put this special Reminder, which locks my desktop after business hours and issues a warning.”
“NO MORE CALLS AND MAILS OUTSIDE OF BUSINESS HOURS !!”, she wrote
“Isn’t this fantastic? So, I think if you are working in this type of culture, you do not need any Monday Motivation or Fun Friday to improve your mood!” she added.
In the concluding lines, she added, “And this is a reality of our office!! Yes in this era we believe in flexible working hours and a happy environment Cheers to all of us!! You can also join. “
Her post garnered over 333,000 likes, 6,109 comments and 9,482 reposts. Users were happy with this type of work culture while some said that this could impact on people’s productivity.
Commenting on her post, one user wrote, “No, this is not fantastic, and can have a serious impact on people’s productivity! Imagine that you were at your most productive working state just before finishing that last thing, and this just ruined whole your work… And this also probably demotivated you to do the same thing tomorrow. Work-life balance should not be forced on people, rather people should develop their mindset to allow themselves to have a work-life balance.”
