Karnataka’s Information Technology Minister Priyank Kharge recently shared his perspective on the debate surrounding the 70-hour work week suggestion by Infosys founder NR Narayana Murthy.
In an interview with The Times of India, Kharge emphasized the importance of productivity at the workplace, suggesting that he wouldn’t enforce a strict 70-hour work week. He stated, “To each his own.
It’s different strokes for different folks. As a minister, I would concentrate on productivity. If you are being productive in seven hours, I don’t mind.” This response comes in the wake of differing opinions on the ideal work week, with other business leaders like Harsh Goenka highlighting the significance of ambition, purpose, and productivity over long hours.
