SoftGrid Computers, a small IT company based in Indore, Madhya Pradesh, has become the talk of the town for prioritizing its employees' work-life balance above everything else. The company has been garnering attention for taking practical steps towards ensuring a healthy work-life balance for its employees.
Tanvi Khandelwal, an employee of SoftGrid Computers, recently shared a post on LinkedIn, which went viral, describing the company's efforts to promote a healthy work-life balance.
According to her post, SoftGrid Computers does not allow its employees to work outside their shift hours. The company ensures this by displaying a pop-up on employees' screens when their shift ends, reminding them to go home. The employee's system is automatically locked after business hours, preventing them from making any calls or sending any mails.
In her post, Tanvi expressed her happiness with her employer's efforts to promote work-life balance, stating that such a culture does not require any Monday motivation or Fun Friday to improve employees' moods. Tanvi also posted a picture of her system displaying the warning message, which read, "Warning! Your shift time is over. The office system will shut down in 10 minutes. Please go home."
The CEO of SoftGrid Computers, Ajay Golani, explained that the company's philosophy is to provide its employees with a healthy work-life balance, which allows them to spend more time with their families and loved ones. By displaying the notification, the company ensures that its employees can leave work on time and take care of their other responsibilities at home.
Kritika Dubey, another employee of SoftGrid Computers, shared that the notification helped her to leave on time and take care of her other responsibilities. Her statement echoes the CEO's comment, showing that the thought behind displaying the notification really works.
SoftGrid Computers reportedly employs 40 people and has become a shining example of how a company can prioritize its employees' work-life balance. The company's efforts have been appreciated by many on social media, with Tanvi's post receiving over 400k likes.
In a time when we are continuously hearing about layoffs in the tech world, SoftGrid Computers' efforts to promote work-life balance are heartening. The company has set an excellent example for other companies to follow and shows that prioritizing employees' work-life balance can lead to a happy and productive workforce.
