Since 1994, the private sector in India has witnessed a substantial rise in its rate of growth and development, and as of the recent years, the acceleration in advancement in the private sector is far greater than that of the public sector. The apparent positive statistics conveying the condition of the private sector in India plainly ought to indicate job satisfaction and overall well-being among the employees, but this, unfortunately, is not true. Deep studies have indicated that a large proportion of employees in the Indian private sector are deteriorating in health, lacking contentment and are suffering from chronic levels of stress and insomnia.
A recent survey, conducted by The Times of India, has revealed that more than 40 percent of the private sector employees in India are afflicted with such diseases that are caused by flaws in lifestyle and adversities in regular life. This is in complete contrast to the situation in public sector jobs in India, where the employees have revealed far more positive traits, such as appreciably good health, stability in families, and cordial conduct. The most disappointing fact in this context is that the youngest, yet the largest, fraction of the employees in India's private sector companies, proves to be the most pitiable. Not only are many workers going through heavy mental stress, resulting in problems of depression and anxiety, but also suffering from obesity due to lack of time for regular physical exercise.
One of the major causative elements of this plight of private employees in India is an overly demanding regular working schedule, and highly set expectations and deadlines for meeting targets. For instance, employees can be called upon to work on their days off, and they may not even be paid for the extra work. Another important factor is the sturdy competition arising in working environments in spite of the low minimum wage, which directly threatens the job stability of private workers in India, giving way to silent diseases. In contrast to the employees in India's government sector, who receive compensation in times of increased inflation in the form of dearness allowance, private sector provides no such facilities. Even the healthcare schemes are fewer and rarer, reflecting the neglected health conditions of private sector employees in India.
As a whole, this poor mental and physical order of employees is significantly hampering their productivity and efficiency in the workplace as well as in Indian society. A wide range of problems, including fatigue, discomfort, tension and low threshold of workload consequently deteriorate their performances. Moreover, this affects their contentment in personal and social lives, making it difficult for them to deal with even the simple and small day-to-day challenges, abating their self-confidence and instilling in them a feeling of incompetence. There is, therefore, a significant need of reconstruction of the basic structure of employee selection, motivation and treatment and the designing of their rights and benefits in the private sector jobs in India. With measures such as setting of reasonable work targets, proper performance appraisal, and apt wages, the employees working in private sector in India can surely yield better involvement and productivity in workplace and society.
