What actions should HR and business leaders take to curb mental harassment at work? Share your thoughts.
Most jobs, specially in developing economies, do not give much emphasis on work-life balance! The result of this is confused, overworked and frustrated individuals who in spite of all the earnings are just not happy.
Everyone often advises you, “To have Work-life balance!”
And you reply with a sigh, “Ugh… I really wish!”
While people often tell you how important it is to start living and not just to make a living, they forgot the important footers.
Most jobs, specially in developing economies, do not give much emphasis on work-life balance! The result of this is; confused, overworked and frustrated individuals who in spite of all the earnings are just not happy.
While, a lot has been preached about the importance of balancing your work and life.
The reality remains that despite all the talks around this issue, most sectors do not have even an idea of how important it is for people to stay ‘alive’ or ‘balanced.’
The mornings of an employee in a company start with a rush to reach the office on time, and the evenings die with waiting at traffic signals to reach home before his child sleeps.
Yes, as harsh it may sound, 9 to 9 jobs are the actual reality where having even a couple of weekends off is a ‘privilege.’ Leaving at 8 in the morning to sitting for dinner at 10, leaves you with little space for living your life!
The pandemic has given us all a fresh perspective on the importance of good health, healthy familial relations and to be living each day.
But the objective will not be achieved until the leaders decide to value their employees.
Employers should recognize the contribution of employees towards a successful business. And profit lies in realizing that an overworked employee is not an asset, but a happy one is!

My daughter turned eight years old in January, and among the various gifts she received from friends and family was an absolutely beautiful personal journal for self-growth. A few days ago, she was exploring the pages when she found a section for writing a letter to her future self. She found this intriguing and began jotting down her thoughts animatedly.
My curiosity piqued and she could sense it immediately. She assured me that she would show me the letter soon, and lo behold, she kept her word.
I glanced at her words, expecting to see a mention of her parents in the first sentence. But, to my utter delight, the first thing she had written about was her AMBITION. Yes, the caps here are intentional because I want to scream with excitement that my daughter chose to write about her ambition and aspirations over everything else first. To me, this was one of those parenting ‘win’ moments.
