WFH Preferred by Most of the Women Workers in India – Report Says!!! Addressing on the last Independence Day, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi had put forward some views on giving equality to women especially in workforce. He insisted that this equality should be given to women in all fields. Moreover, he believed that full participation of women power is necessary for India to achieve its goals more faster.
Apart from this, the Prime Minister mentioned that the work-from-home environment will encourage more women to work at a national conference attended by labor ministers of all states and union territories last week. According to him, it shows how important the role of women is to India’s development. India also has one of the lowest female labor force participation rates or LFPRs across the world.
In India, even though more women are educated, the labor force is dominated by men. However, the net enrollment of girls in schools and colleges has risen to the level of boys. Now the Center for Monitoring the Indian Economy says that LPR for men was 66% and LPR for women was 9% in January-April 2022. India lags behind countries like China, Brazil, United Arab Emirates, Bangladesh and Saudi Arabia in this metric.
Meanwhile, an International Labor Organization (ILO) report says that 34% of rural women and 28% of urban women in India want to adopt the mode of working from home. Especially women in the age group of 25 to 35 prefer working from home work mode which gives lot of flexibility. However, experts have said that, attention should be paid to WFH female employees to be paid the same wages and working hours as in the offices.
