SoftGrid Computers is an Indian tech start-up based in Indore in Madhya Pradesh. It has installed software that reminds employees that their shift time is over and it’s time to go home.
This company has around 40 employees and they get a daily notification to log off every day 10 minutes before their shift ends. At 7 p.m., their desktops automatically shuts down.
Shweta Shukla, CEO and founder of this start-up said that the notification was part of the company’s efforts to allow employees to enjoy a better work-life balance. The software was installed in all employee systems about six months ago.
Many people have praised this initiative after the post went viral. For those employees who have pending work and need to continue with their work, they can just restart the system and log in, says Shweta Shukla.
