Modern moms are redefining Motherhood. It is no more about cooking, ironing clothes and being present when you are back from school. The modern mom is synonymous to multitasking. She stands out as a strong, independent, leader who is equally at ease as an entrepreneur or at running a high-end technology start-up, but, continues to remain a mom who loves, cares, pampers, and is concerned about her child.

6 am: *Alarm.. !*

Can I sleep for 5 more minutes? Oh no! I need to cook and send my son to school… also laundry his dirty clothes… first let me wake him up!

9 am: He is off to school. I can have my breakfast in peace. Let me check my emails…

          *checking emails*

           I have a project development meeting at 10, now I should hurry up.

1 pm: Yeah great meeting. Now I should work on all the changes the client has suggested and update him by evening. But wait, let me first check on my son.

3 pm: Client sends more changes to the project. I’ll call the nanny to check if she is on her way to pick my son.

6 pm: I am done with my work. Now it’s time, I am off to home. But client wants to have a call at 7… Ok, I can take it from there.

This is a typical day of a working mom, especially, in the technology industry.

Today, women are not just playing the roles of great moms, but are also front-runners in the technology world. They have proven that it is not necessary to opt between family and career. It is because they believe that their job, is their identity, and the family, their happiness.

These independent women are serving as role models for the coming generations. “What is the point of being a full time home-maker and ask my daughter to be independent and lead people”, says Mousumi Saha, Delivery Manager at Tech Vedika. She believes in leading the way and not just talking about it.

A research revealed that there is 79% less chance for mothers getting hired in a corporate sector. Besides, they are offered $11,000 less salary than men on an average. However, alternatively, another study reveals that moms are more proficient and devoted to their work when compared to the other workforce. The women in the Human Resource Team at Tech Vedika are champions of the second study: they believe when a new mom is given a chance they tend to be more productive, if provided with flexible work hours and remote working facilities. The main aim of the tech recruiters is making a peaceful working atmosphere where the working moms could work contentedly by attending to both work and kids.

Post motherhood talent helps filling in talent crisis. A recent observation of a study conducted by Microsoft revealed that women employees saw an increase in multitasking skills and team spirit after they became mothers, inspiring them to host several hiring activities targeted at women returning after a break in their career owing to motherhood or any other reasons.

Juggling between kids and work is very hard and it is possible to manage things with a little support from their families. This support should also come from the workplace – the team and the manager. “We are lucky to work in such an understanding working environment” says the mom’s at Tech Vedika.

Modern moms are redefining Motherhood. It is no more about cooking, ironing clothes and being present when you are back from school. The modern mom is synonymous to multitasking. She stands out as a strong, independent, leader who is equally at ease as an entrepreneur or at running a high-end technology start-up, but, continues to remain a mom who loves, cares, pampers, and is concerned about her child.

The women with their unbelievable emotional intelligence rule the world. They balance so many roles with a smile. A big salute to their strength, courage and patience.

Thanking All Moms, for making the world a better place to live, One More Time…

    Over all a nice article, covered all the key aspects of a working mom. Balancing both work and home right is the actual win for us. This is quite possible for our TechV working moms, just because of understanding managers and management.
