Indian women are an embodiment of strength and perseverance.

Classical economists or development experts will generally opine that Start-ups are initiated primarily with the motive to earn profit. Over the years big and established business houses are focusing on Corporate Social Responsibility. Philanthropy or charities are promoted by successful business families. Thus championing a societal goal is a typical business strategy and many a time it opens up avenues for new business profits. The contribution of all types of businesses is highly appreciative, their concern to promote societal goals is admirable….but there are a few social enterprises which work dedicatedly to fulfil their social mission and are in complete synergy with the commercial demands.
A career portal for women, who want to work from home or be an entrepreneur, is a big challenge in itself……there is a mission behind its core objective – women emancipation, however within the self drawn margins by women themselves. There has to be a platform which offers opportunities galore and embody the belief that how much of work hours a woman wants to put in is a matter of her choice. It respects that ‘the choice’ made by a woman is the first step of empowerment. Economic independence of women is a major factor for empowering women. A community network for women…with dash of difference is the requirement of the day. This is what GharSeNaukri stands for.
According to a report by Forbes, 24% women are part of the workforce in India. But only 5% of these reach the top layer as compared to a global average of 20%. The major contributing factors being child care and very recent studies reveal that a large population of working women are leaving jobs for the eldercare too. On one hand it reveals a significant debatable issue of our child care and elder care policies/services accessible to them, and on the other exposes the bitter reality that leaving a job is not just a loss for the woman but also to the organization which has invested in her.
We thus need to create an enabling environment of inclusion. Companies, businesses, organizations too are changing their recruitment profile and hiring professionals on short term or part time basis. This is a revolution which enables both professionals to utilize their expertise and organizations to fulfil their employee requirement without having to invest much. This revolution is channelized by the platform of GharSeNaukri – a perfect interface for employers and professionals. GSN has started a change…..be a part of its journey which is going to be a rewarding experience.
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.
