Bangalore: 93 percent of techies feel that their health is being affected by work and more than half say it's got worse since the recession began, according to a survey.
The main effects on their wellbeing are cited as not enough time to exercise and others say that it's because their social lives have changed for the worse. An IT Job Board spokesperson says that this bad news from the industry is most likely down to the fast-paced and environmental nature of the work.
"If employers want to keep their absenteeism down, they should create a better working environment that focuses on its employees' health," says IT Job Board.
