Work life balance is a major concern when it comes to where you choose to work. This is important as some workplaces simply do not care about it and require you to work pass your working hours and even on weekends.

However, it seems that an Indian IT company has found an innovative way on how to make sure that its employees do not work pass the working hours.

In a report by India Today, it was reported that the small IT company in Madhya Pradesh, Indore, prioritises the work-life balance of its employees above anything else.



The said company, SoftGrid Computers, doesn’t allow its employees to work outside their shift hours by installing a software which displays a pop-up on employees’ screens when their shift ends, reminding them to go home.

The popup reads, “Your shift time is over. The office system will shut down in 10 mins. PLEASE GO HOME!”

An employee of the company, Tanvi Khandelwal, shared a post on LinkedIn about it. Tanvi, in her post, mentioned that her employer supports work-life balance and her system is automatically locked after business hours.

She wrote, “This is not a promotional and imaginary post ! This is the reality of our office !! SoftGrid Computers. My employer supports #WorkLifeBalance. They put this special Reminder, which locks my desktop after business hours and issues a warning. No more calls and mails outside business hours.”

“Isn’t this fantastic? So, I think if you are working in this type of culture , you do not need any Monday Motivation or Fun Friday to improve your mood! And this is a reality of our office!! Yes in this era we believe in flexible working hours and happy environment. Cheers to all of us.”

Meanwhile, the company’s CEO, Ajay Golani, said that the thought behind the move is to ensure a good work-life balance for the employees. He also added that this way, the employees will be able to spend more time with their loved ones and families.

“The thought behind this is providing employees a good work-life balance so that they can spend time with their families and loved ones,” he said.


Kudos to the company for implementing measures to ensure that their workers do not get overworked or burnt out.
