Is it true that policy on women empowerment is only on papers? Is it a bitter reality that though women are an integral part of the social structure, yet her health, nutrition, economic equality is hardly a priority in the Indian society? If data speaks…then the situation is alarming! Do the majority of Indian women have access to equal opportunities of work? Unfortunately….a big NO! Women emancipation or equal opportunities for women in workforce is considered as one of the parameters of economic growth of a nation.
International Labour Organization states that between 2004 to 2011, Indian economy grew at a healthy average of 7%, yet India witnessed a decline in female labour participation from 35% to 25%. This raises the question of why the decline?….In urban areas we witness a lot of women belonging to various economic strata moving out of the houses to earn a living! So why we as a nation fair so poorly with Bangladesh and Indonesia when it comes to women economic empowerment?
World Bank states that there are 217 million missing women in India’s workforce and India has one of the worst gender gaps in labour force participation. Are these data real? Do these figures really matter in a normal Indian household? Is increase in women workforce really a sign of women emancipation? Modern urban woman, though perhaps not the majority, enjoy access to opportunities of various types – internet, social life, community bonding…..but here what matter is the realization that the appalling women labour force participation in India is a structural problem – social roles, family responsibilities….and the list goes on! Every woman has to understand her responsibility and realize that making her aspirations come true, is reflection of her true self!
GharSeNaukri is a unique platform for women from all walks of life which firmly believes that women can ‘Have it all! Do it all! Regardless of what field they are in.’ The Global Gender Gap Index by the World Economic Forum captures the magnitude of gender-based disparities in various countries and as per 2014 report; India is below average in Economic Participation and opportunity and is part of the twenty worst-performing countries on Labour force participation (ranked at 134 out of 142 countries).
Majority of working women in India still face the stereotypical myriad of issues – childcare, unfair share of domestic chores, gender bias at work, extreme work conditions, security issues and eldercare. This leads to a lower rate of women employment and lesser retention in the workforce. Thus a holistic and a comprehensive platform can be a catalyst for women empowerment. This catalyst of change with the motive of engaging women with flexible working hours and enhancing entrepreneurial skills is the underlying statement concept of GharSeNaukri.
Human Resource Planning is one of the most crucial requirements for any business/organization to sustain in the competitive milieu. It is also in the benefit of every organization to focus on diversity recruitment and a core component of their workforce should include women with flexible work hours. According to Knowledge Centre Catalyst Inc ‘If India can increase women’s labour force participation by 10 percentage points (68 million more women) by 2025, India could increase its GDP to 16%.’
India has a vast repository of potential women workforce. The question then here arises how to harness this power for a positive outcome. It is here that every organization should understand the tangible benefits that one achieves from hiring women on a part time or consultancy basis or providing short term/assignment based jobs. The bottom line thus is empowered women, high quality innovation and recruitment across a cross section of substantially talented women workforce.
Every organization has a responsibility towards the development of the Nation. Its contribution is not limited only to economic development but also social development and investing in women is most productive and beneficial….because empowered women can make their own decisions, families are healthier and the community progresses.

The Labour Force in India has been declining drastically. According to a recent report by ‘Catalyst.org’, women’s participation rate fell from 34.1 to 27.2% in the year 2012. And from these, almost 36% women discontinued their jobs due to one or the other social responsibility like raising children, marriage, elderly parents, etc.
This is not the scenario only in India! Another study as per ‘The Guardian’, shows that the managers generally hires a less qualified candidate rather than the one who’s out of work for more than six months. Does this mean that highly qualified moms, housewives or females who were on a ‘break’, can’t work anymore?

One of the interesting pieces of handicrafts you will find on this website is the varieties of Rakhi. Now, making a Rakhi required a lot of creative skills, since the more colorful and meaningful each one is, the more it will fetch customers. Raksha Bandhan or the day when a sister ties the Rakhi on her brother’s hand for the latter’s protection and well being is one of the most popular festivals across India. As a result, many women are found making rakhis at their home as a part of their profession for easy money. Since, most of the Indian women, especially from the lower income group have to spend most of their time behind household chores they can’t leave home on many occasions looking for extra income. As a result, they take up professions which they can commit to from home, and one of them is making Rakhi.
