Gone are the days when managers cared about the traditional work schedule, now managers prioritize results over the traditional nine-to-five work schedule.
Managers have changed now, they do not care about when and where you work, as long as you get the job done. This approach has been hailed by some as a game-changer in the workplace, but it has also sparked controversy and raised concerns about work-life balance. The concept of flexible working arrangements is not new, but it has gained traction in recent years due to advancements in technology and changing social attitudes. Many employees can now work remotely or outside of traditional office hours, which has given rise to the idea of results-based management. Under this approach, managers set clear goals and expectations for their employees and allow them to work on their own terms as long as they achieve their targets.
One of the key advantages of this approach is that it empowers employees to take control of their own work schedules. This can be especially beneficial for workers who have other commitments outside of work, such as caring for children or elderly relatives. With flexible working arrangements, employees can better balance their personal and professional lives, leading to increased job satisfaction and higher levels of productivity. Sadly, we have a few managers who do not care about when and where their employees are working; they care about the results. A manager working at Altria made a post about what she cares and does not care about and the post went viral. You need to check this post. Here is the post. Scroll down.
This manager cares that your daughter has got another ear infection and she doesn’t care that you will be offline for the next two hours for her checkup:
This manager cares for your ailing mother at home.
The manager does not mind if her employees will get back to her an hour after picking their kids up from the school.
This manager would not mind if you need to jump off her call to clean your dog’s mess.
Managers who adopt the flexible work approach are also able to tap into a wider pool of talent. By allowing employees to work remotely, they can recruit workers who live in different parts of the country or even the world. This not only expands the talent pool but also reduces costs associated with physical office space and commuting.
In today’s workforce, we have very few managers who prioritize the well-being of their employees and strive for quality work. These types of managers understand that their employees are their most important asset and invest in their professional development and personal growth. They also understand that quality work is essential to achieving long-term success and customer satisfaction. By fostering a culture of care and excellence, these managers are able to inspire their teams to achieve their full potential and deliver exceptional results.
The manager does not care if you are working from the office or from another part of the world.
This manager knows that her employees are tired and that they need a break.
She does not care when, where or how you get your work done as long as you are delivering quality work.
