Please leave now! An Indian company uses work-life balance software

Delhi, India: A unique method for ensuring that its employees maintain a healthy work-life balance has been developed by a small IT company in the central Indian city of Indore by developing software to notify them when their shift is over and it is time to head home.

The software developed by Softgrid Computers comes equipped with a notification system that kicks in as soon as an employee’s shift ends, informing them that “the office system will shut down in 10 minutes” and requesting that they “please go home.”

The measure comes at a time when more attention and research are being paid to the negative effects that long working hours have on employees’ relationships and health all over the world. For instance, in 2021, the World Health Organization issued a warning that working more than 55 hours per week could increase one’s risk of heart disease death by 17% and stroke by 35%.

According to Reuters partner ANI, Chief Executive Ajay Golani, “the thought behind this is providing employees with a good work-life balance so that they can spend time with their families and loved ones.”

When Tanvi Khandelwal, an employee, shared a picture of the warning on a company desktop, it caused a stir on social media.

Khandelwal wrote a week ago on LinkedIn, “They included one particular note that locks my PC after work hours and warns me.” Since then, nearly 400,000 people have liked her post. ” There will be no more phone calls or mail outside of business hours! Isn’t this amazing?

One of the company’s forty employees, Kritika Dubey, told ANI that the pop-up helped her leave on time and fulfill other domestic obligations.
