Working women are looking for more gender-specific corporate wellness programs from their employers. According to a well-being survey, there is a significantly increased feeling of stress among working women than men. Balancing professional commitment at the workplace and personal commitments at home are creating more stress in working women the report says. Women feel more stressed in maintaining work-life balance compared to men.
Women’s physical and mental makeup varies a lot from that of men. Our societal mindset always looks upon women as uncompromising caregivers. These put lots of pressure both at home and at the workplace that significantly affects their wellness. Of all demographics taken for the survey, it has been found that working women within the age group 35-49 are the worst sufferers. They are in the danger zone of impaired productivity and performance when it comes to managing operations and driving growth.
Women feel they are under constant judgment for wanting to give 100% to the workplace and family commitments. This is a big stressor. Other stressors are poor health, unhealthy work culture, and lack of proper support. Dr Santosh Datar, Medical Director at Ziqitza Healthcare Limited says women are less inclined to follow routine fitness checkups. As for them when one job ends another begins. Most working women are juggling the home and work at the office, often they leave their health to luck and ignore basic symptoms like a headache, backache, cough, and cold because they simply don’t find the time. Women often miss these owing to professional or personal commitments. But these minor issues which we miss may be fatal in the long run.
