    Many restrictions imposed on the employees in our company

    I am working in a MNC. Our company has imposed many restrictions on its employees like wear only formal clothes at workplace and that too of specific colours only, to eat only from the office canteen, to keep our mobiles on silent during working hours etc. I think this is too much. How to deal with such restrictions?

    Re: Many restrictions imposed on the employees in our company

    Many companies now a days are following strict rules and regulation so that they can maintain discipline in the office so that the things can be managed

    properly.

    As you are an employee of the company it is also a part of your duty to respect those rules and follow the same.

    Rules are designed keeping many things and past experiences in mind.

    Like wearing formal clothes are both for the benefit for the company and the employees like such things help in maintaining a professional environment in

    the company, also it helps employees in the sense that many employees are not sure about their dressing sense and also not good in that which creates

    a lot of problems both for the employees and their coworkers.

    Mobile has become one of the major problems in the companies as it creates a lots of disturbance in the environment which effects the working of the

    employees.

    Similarly there can be various reason for eating from office canteen only like health and hygiene of the employees, also many a times employees go out

    for lunch and come back late in office etc.

    So every rule has some reasons behind it, these are not to irritate you but for smooth working of the company as there are so many employees in big

    companies and if not managed by such rules can be huge problem in managing and thus taking out best work from the employees.

    Hello Aspirant,

    Most of the companies have their own dress code in order to give their own identification among the public.Each & every company has its own policy with regard to benefits & perks to the employees,administration etc.Policy is formed in view of mass interest which may not suit to all.If there is no policy on a particular matter,It won't be possible to control either the employees or public.

    Man by nature wants to be free in all aspects,but imagine the situations if all of us made free to do any thing.Whole world population will be converted in to uncivilized life.

    Company formulates some policy after facing some problem or on demand from the public.If you want any changes in the policy of the company with regard to dress,canteen etc,you should convene a meeting of all the employees,discuss the matter & if there is consent to get the restriction free as to the matter stated above,get a common petition signed by all the participants & employees & hand it over the manager HR.If it is considered positively,there may be change in the policy.

    Don't dare to oppose the matter individually otherwise you may be started harassing & ultimately may be sacked.

    Good luck.

    Hi,

    You can't stop the policy any companies following...but either you have to adapt the rules followed by your company or else you have to change the company...if you are at all unable to match the concerns...

    However note that there might be other type of issues you will face in other companies which you will not like... then what ... again you have to change...

    Policies are framed after thinking of so many areas... not not just framed a policy and implement... there might be others who like this system...then what...company can't frame policy individually... it has to be uniform for all...

    Hence think and try to adapt the changes/policy which are following in your company..
    Best of luck...

    Dear,
    Every company have its own policies and if are working there then you have to obey it.
    If there is some policy or rule which is irritating the workers than all of you can collective talk to your management about that.
    Before asking for the change firstly find out why particular rule has been made.


    Hope the suggestion is going to help you out.

    Hello,

    Every organization has its own sets of rules and regulations. So you should not be
    confused to see such set of rules. All top MNCs maintain a very stringent dress codes
    and other etiquette in office place and you need to abide by their rules and regulations.
    You should take a professional approach and adjust yourself according to the need of
    your workplace. The begining would be very hard but soon you will get used to the
    situation and as the saying goes "At rome we must do as the Romans do".

    Bye,

    Dear Aspirant,

    Congratulations for working in a MNC.Being an employee,you should think for others also.I think there are hundreds of employees working together in your company.Imagine the situation if all of you don't keep your mobile in silent mode.

    I don't think there will be a peace & favourable working environment to work well.So the company adopts any policy keeping interest of the mass.Introducing dress code is essential to give identification of the employees.All the employees differ in their nature & aim.No one knows who will do what.So it is a good policy.It seems also good to have restriction to have food,in need,from the office canteen only,because of hygienic condition,easily food availability & rather cheaper.

    In spite of all the above facts,if you want to get change in the restriction,you must demand it from the management jointly with your colleagues & other staffs working there,otherwise you may be harassed by the management.

    So in order to rise in your career,concentrate in your work,be obedient & efficient.

    Thanks & good luck.

    companies have some rules and regulations you need to obey them atleast to gain some work experience and move on with other company for work .. its not that you have to stick on a particular company and work rest of your life.. but i don't think that your company should put rule stating that you need to eat in office canteen this is really too much as its the matter of health issues you can't compromise on health issues.. so its important that you need to report it to higher authorities...yes you you need to maintain formal attire in office you cannot change that if your company management had issued in interest of the company you cannot deny this... mobiles, its very common in all organisation that you keep your mobiles on silent mode its basic manner at office you should not distract others with ringtones and music that people hear when you get a call.... all the best

    Hello Dear
    As you told that in your company restrictions on the employees and you think it is too much.But my dear friend i want to know you that every company like your company wants to maintain their decorum,a good working culture and create their reputation in public.So that their employees can indentify in the rush.Every company want to maintain a good decipline on working place and company try to decrease the space between staff and worker.
    Company try to provide his employees good food thats why they restrict employees to take food from office canteen.Because out of company,food is not hygenic.So they are aware about your health and it is less time consuming.Moblies are create a lot of disturbence in working place.Owing to this most of companies not allowed mobiles in working place and i think it is good if it is allowed to u on silent mode.Mobile ring can create a disturbance and its radiations are also harmful.
    I suggest u that restrictions are good some times.
    good luck.

    Most of the corporations get their particular gown value so as to supply their particular identity on the list of public.Each & any corporation have their own insurance policy pertaining to added benefits & rewards on the workers,supervision etc.Policy is inside take a look at large curiosity that might not necessarily fit with in order to all.If there is absolutely no insurance policy on a specific make a difference,It will not be feasible to control frequently the staff or public.

    Guy naturally wishes to be free in most aspects,although picture the circumstances if most of us built unengaged to do any thing.Whole world human population will likely be converted in uncivilized life.

    Organization formulates some insurance policy right after going through some dilemma or on need through the public.If you would like just about any modifications in a policy on the corporation pertaining to gown,canteen and so forth,you must convene a celebration with all the different workers,focus on the matter & if you have consent to discover the constraint free towards the make a difference previously stated,acquire a frequent case brought in simply by each of the individuals & workers & give the item within the office manager HR.If the item may be known as positively,there may be change inside policy.

    Really don't are brave enough in order to oppose the matter separately or else you will be commenced harassing & in the long run may be sacked.
    I do think there are many hundreds of workers working together inside your company.Imagine your situation if everyone do not maintain the cell inside muted mode.

    We don't believe generally there would have been a contentment & great functioning natural environment to be effective well.So the corporation adopts just about any insurance policy trying to keep curiosity on the mass.Introducing gown value is essential to present identity on the employees.All the staff range within their nature & aim.No 1 understands which will carry out what.So the item is a wonderful policy.It appears to be furthermore excellent to obtain constraint to obtain foods,in need,through a cubicle canteen exclusively,as a consequence of hygienic issue,quickly foods variety & relatively cheaper.

    Despite with all the different higher than information,if you wish to acquire change inside constraint,you have to need the item through the managing mutually using your fellow workers & other employees functioning generally there,or else you will be harassed by the management.

    Thus so as to climb inside your occupation,completely focus inside your function,be obedient & efficient.

    Re: Many restrictions imposed on the employees in our company

    Dear Friend

    Yes,it is true that different companies have different rules and regulations for their employee. Companies used to put restrictions on their employees .Some rules are really beneficial for the efficient working like mobile being silent during working hours.

    But the rule like eating from only office canteen should not be there.

    Do not get irritated ,keep yourself concentrated on your work and give your 100% for the betterment of company.If some of the rules are really irritating mass of employees then it would be helpful if you all go to your boss and talk about the rules and the modification.

    One request is that never lose your concentration from work as it will damage your career.

    Hope the information helps as well as satisfies you .If you have any further query regarding this then please leave it here.

    All the best
