Last Saturday evening (23rd April 2011), around thirty IT/ITeS Employees gathered under the banner of IT and ITeS Employee Centre (ITEC) in front of Bangalore’s Town Hall amidst heavy and incessant rain to condole the shocking suicide of Prabhakar. The deceased was a thirty eight year old who had been working in the information technology industry for over a decade. The late Prabhakar had apparently left a note stating that he was resorting to the extreme step as he was unable to cope with the severe stress that his job was causing him.
ITEC has decided to set up an Employee Helpline Centre where IT/ITeS Employees can seek counseling and professional assistance from a group of specialists including counselors, psychiatrists, legal and other health experts. Further details are available here.
