We live in a ubiquitously connected world where we are plugged in seamlessly across multiple devices. Slowly we have erased the distinction between work and non work hours. Even when at home or outdoors we are in our work elements skyping or checking mails. We have forgotten to live the small moments in life as we get immersed digitally on our connected devices . This is leading towards a stressful and overworked environment. Burnouts, loss of health, depression , marital divorce and even suicides have been on the rise.
Gallup states that globally 19% of workforce report sick due to work related stress and resulting imbalance. The same report goes on to suggest that a balanced and motivated team member shows 21% higher productivity than normal. WHO reports that apart from physical stress , 35% of work related stress leads to mental health problems.
This statistics aside… Another report states that by 2020 . 50% of our teams will be composed of millennials and Z generation who have varied workplace preferences and career goals.
All these factors set the stage for a dire need for a discussion on the need for Driving Project success through improved Work life balance on our teams , thereby building awareness on the theme of this conference.
I recollect Bryon Dyson, Former CEO Coca Cola quote …
In life we are constantly juggling 5 -6 balls at a time. Among them Work is a rubber ball while Health, Social, Friends, Family, and Spirit are glass balls. A rubber ball if dropped can always bounce back while the glass balls once dropped will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked, damaged or even shattered.
Enough said… come and join us on September 25 at our fifth state Conference for a day long discussion with thought leaders who have walked the talk on work life balance.
I would like to sign off reminding you of the famous quotes of Dr Kalam. “Always leave office on time, as work is a never ending process….”
This is Syed the Conference director signing off. Looking forward to seeing you all at the conference. Until then Inner Peace !
