A CEO sought assistance online and was promptly fired. The CEO asked a question on his website about how committed his employees were to their work. Individuals shouldn’t be expected to work much harder than they are compensated for. However, simply leaving work on time does not indicate a lack of commitment on the part of the employee. A mismatch between workers and employers has resulted from the changing structure of the labor and economy, particularly in terms of a positive work/life balance. When incidents like this occur, you realize just how disconnected some CEOs are from the majority of their workforce.
Of course, the internet was unavailable!
This person’s response truly hit the mark: Working longer hours should be an option, one that is monetarily compensated for by the employer, not a mandate that is not outlined in the employee’s contract.
Some employees are now expected to be available at all times due to the changing nature of the economy and easier access to technology. If not, it is assumed that they are “uncommitted” to their work.
Businesses that treat their workers properly are more likely to have better relationships with them and to have more eager workers. even if only within the confines of their individual work/life balance.
As my business studies instructor in grade eleven kept emphasizing.
