DC tells govt officials not to mix work with personal life

Deputy Commissioner D Randeep said, government employees should never mix or allow work stress and personal problems affect each other.

He was delivering a valedictory speech at a training programme on transformational leadership for senior government officials of Mysuru district, organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), in association with the district administration, at a private hotel here recently. The programme was sponsored by Automotive Axles and Meritor India.

“Everyone faces trouble and pressure, both at home and work. Also, pressure is more on government officials, in particular, due to various obstacles. However, unlike employees associated with the private sector, who are motivated and re-oriented on several occasions, government officials are often left neglected, and are left to fend for themselves, which is unfortunate,” he said.

He called upon the officials to make use of their leaves instead of working endlessly as it affects one’s productivity and state of mind. “Sadly, many think, without their contribution at office, no work will progress and continue to work without taking even a single day’s leave. This should not be done as it affects one’s mind and every one should make use of their leaves,” he said.

“Every government employee is an asset to the government. So, all should concentrate on one’s health and sanity to perform better. One should ensure that one maintains good work-life balance,” he added.

The event, which included talks by motivational speakers, including V Aswatha Ramaiah from Unique Consultants, Bengaluru, and M S Raghu, certified master trainer, Neuro Linguistic Programme, aimed at aiding the participants improve upon their personality, maintain work life balance, to develop positive attitude, to develop self-motivation, public service motive, time and stress management and brain development skills.

Senior government officials from departments like City Police, Zilla Panchayat, Mysuru City Corporation, MUDA, taluk office, RTO, Animal Husbandry, Rural Development and Panchayat Raj, Revenue department, Health and Family Welfare department, PWD, Treasury department, and assistant commissioners participated in the day-long programme.
CII-Mysuru chairman N Muthukumar was present.
