Abstract

The Information Technology sector has become the backbone of the Indian economy, especially with the rise in digitalization, privatization, and globalization. Due to factors like rapid changes in technology, increase in competition, increase in population, job requirements, et cetera, the IT sector has become extremely volatile and complex, which leads to stress and frustration in employees. Issues like stress, instigate the development of physical and mental health problems including dementia. Early detection of these symptoms can help in controlling the situation by inducing major lifestyle changes and counselling. The focus in this research is on Dementia which is a progressive condition that can eventually impair a person’s ability to work. The aim is to analyse the onset of Dementia in employees of the IT sector, in its earliest stages using the Dementia Screening questionnaire. We have examined a few of the factors affecting it like the number of employees in the organization, stress, with focus on age and gender, so that we can determine the groups at the maximum risk. The study also shows how stress affects decision making in these employees. This data would help to frame such policies in the organization which could help to reduce the factors causing dementia.
