ZS Women Balance Two Important Jobs

Posted by ZS on May 21, 2018 2:00:00 PM

Finding a work-life balance—for any individual—can be tricky. All working mothers experience the competing demands of raising a family while building a career. However, many believe, finding harmony between these two simultaneous jobs at ZS is not only possible, but also tremendously meaningful.

Pooja, a human resources manager in Pune, believes that being a working mom is the toughest role any woman can play. “There is an ongoing tussle in our minds, either you are being unfair to your child, family when you cannot give them quality time, or you feel you are falling back on your promise to yourself when you decided to pursue a career,” she shares. However, she feels that ZS has made her journey as a mother very comfortable, offering her time off and work from home days during the most critical phase in her son’s education. Her 20-year-old son Vedant, who she says is more like a friend these days, will be attending MIT College in Pune to pursue his Engineering Degree.
