The Health of India¶s workforce is in serious jeopardy.Work life balance is skewed with people working 14 to 15hour shifts in India¶s booming software and BPO industry.While outsourcing has led to prosperity, we also have anincreasingly ill task force.Some Examples:
1.43 year old COO of a top ranked BPO collapsed on his way home. Wasdiagnosed with a rare TB of the brain!2.27 year old woman working in an IT company kept getting weaker andweaker till one day she could not get out of bed. ±diagnosed with a rareinfection of the spine.3.34 year old man in a top bank had a heart attack while driving back homefrom work. His boss called him up next day to ask ³So will you be back nextweek?´

In the Global Workplace we not only work harder, we worklonger!
When we wake up, our counterparts in the US may be just about tosleep. To ensure seamless operations, Indian team members wakeup sooner to take the download from US based offices/clients andwe may sleep later to ensure that unfinished work does not impactthe next shift.
The Impact:
1.Midnight calls may often be taken at home. Work and home life often merge sothat the distinction between work time and home time becomes blurred.2.There is often no escape from long hours, constant calls and emails. Absenceof downtime increases overall feeling of stress.3.Team members burn out or leave the team, if work hours are not limited, evenif compensation is appropriate. Constant flux increases pressure on other teammembers to compensate for the new Boss or Fellow worker ±both of whommay take time to pick up the ropes.

hen I started this job (BPO) 2 years back, I loved it, the money was good and I enjoyed the culture. Things are different now, I don¶t feel like going to work, I feel tired all the time and my Blood Pressureis constantly high´.-25 Year Old BPO Employee
