Whether you relate to the above scenario or not but there’s no denying the fact that we all need some space and time for family and friends. Work, no doubt, is an integral part of our lives but there is always need for a balance between work and our personal life. Yes, #WorkLifeBalance is important and if given a choice 78% would like to be segmentors and not blenders, says our new research that surveyed close to 2000 working professionals in India.

Segmentors are people who clearly define boundaries between their work and personal lives while blenders are people who blur the lines between work and home and easily navigate their way between the two.

The survey explored sentiments of working professionals to find out what aspects of work-life balance are most valued by them.

According to our study, 60% of Indian working professionals surveyed rated their current work-life-balance average to terrible. Collectively 67% of the India’s working professionals either sometimes, often or always think about work when not at work. Are you one of them?

About half of the respondents in relationships currently, confessed that the lack of work life balance (WLB) makes them or their partners irritable or ill-tempered. Lack of sleep (17%), depression (16%), (frequent headaches 15%), back pain & fatigue (14%), anxiety & irritability (9%), obesity (5%) and hypertension (4.5%) came up as the top work-related illnesses.
