This paper reports on a study that explored quality of life issues related to call center employees in India. Over the past decade large numbers of multi-national corporations have moved their call center operations to India. This move has been facilitated by the rapid adoption of VoIP technologies that allow efficient communication over long distances. This business initiative has been accompanied with increased need for “Westernized” call center employees to efficiently interact with the Western customer. This and similar other forces help to sharpen the life experience of call center workers. This study suggests that call center employees have significant life-style concerns that are directly related to the job they have chosen to do. To be sure, this study provides an in-depth glimpse at the issues since the study incorporate focus group meeting with about 30 different participants.
