    Mobile chargers not allowed in office

    We work in a highly reputed organisation where all the services are provided but a very weird rule is made by management that no personal mobile charges are allowed in office premises. The employer said that it is a power saving technique but I think this is too much. What can be done?

    As you are working in highly reputed organization, which is a private one, so these are company's rule made by themselves, which you must follow. All such information will be provided to you which you might have signed.Most of companies have such rules, in order to avoid employers lightness in work. If it really creates a problem to you, then you can all gather together and can talk in the management regarding this matter. Only a personalized meeting with the management can solve this issue.I am sure, you will get some solution by conducting meeting with the management.

    hello
    Mobile chargers do not withdraw a very big amount of power and in contrast it just uses a fraction of power compared to the light bulbs.
    You can make the management understand this point by putting your point to the management.
    If you come with no solution then you can consider taking a data cable with you to office and if you want to charge your mobile phone then simply plug it to computer.
    This way you can also convience the management that you are transferring important file and thats why the phone data cable is being used.

    Dear Aspirant,

    Every organisation has its own rules and regulations which every employees need to follow.But I think the above rule is not correct.So,you need to take some steps to find out the solution and solve it.Since,mobile chargers are not allowed in your organisation,according to me, you can opt for any of the any of the options mentioned below:-

    1.Write an application to the management that mobile chargers should be allowed as mobiles are very necessary gadgets and without it,you all are not able to perform your works efficiently because there are many works which can be easily done through mobile.Take the signs of all the employees on the application and then submit it to the organisation.I think this will work.

    2.If you are using a simple mobile and its battery back up is low, then you can opt for an another mobile whose battery back up is at least 5-6 days. Then you can easily charge your mobile in your home and you will face no problem in your office.

    3.If you are using a high cost mobile with many facilities available in it,then there must be USB port available in it. Through USB connector,you can connect your mobile with a laptop or a computer. After connection,your mobile will start charging.

    Thanks.

    Ashok.

    Hi buddy I think your management may certainly have a very good reason for making such a rule. Maybe if everyone uses their personal charger it leads to wastage of power but if everone uses the charger provided by the company it saves power. The company should have certainly provided woth the facility of a universal charger i guess througgh which any types of mobiles can be charged. That be a power saving device made on the latest technology as compared to your own personal chargers.

    I think every company thinks the best for its employees and does not want to inconvience them in any way because a good employer-management relation is the only way for a company to reach new heights and progress further. But if you and the others are having problems with this rule and are feeling inconvenient then you all or a few of you can go and request your manager to change this rule citing that all the problems are facing problems due to this. I am sure he will consider your request and may even change the rule.

    Good luck aspirant

    Mobile chargers and charging should not be allowed in the office during the office hour.This habit if we think irrespectively then this decision is quite right decision must be obeyed by all.Though almost all recharge their mobile in the house and sometimes may not.However this habit is not certainly good for company as well as for customer.If we accept this unitedly surely company's interest more or less to be controlled.So restriction on mobile charging during office hour is appropriate.A pvt. company or customer oriented concern can implement this after calling all staff and all staff must comply with the restrictions.

    Thank you

    Hello,

    I can understand your problem.Every one knows that each company have its own rules and regulations.It may seem to much to you,but you are supposed to abide by such rules.It is clear that power saving is just an excuse not to allow mobile chargers in office.Actually the main reason which can be is,the company basically doesnot want to entertain any personal issues to be done in office premises.They want to maintain the corporate protocol.That is why they dont allow chargers in office.Think over it that ,you are not supposed to use mobile charger in office,as it is your personal use.Think over it,you will understand their viewpoint.

    All you can do is to talk to your higher authority and ask them for permission.If yes then well and good,otherwise you have no option.

    Hi friend,
    It seems to be ridiculous. With the advent of technology it is difficult to imagine life without mobiles. They are part of our life.
    Mobiles didn't consume much power. They need very less power. May be your company have it's own rules and regulations. So violating rules will be a negative mark in your career.
    To avoid this you have to follow simple things like taking fully charged battery and a spare battery with you. Using usb to charge mobile etc.
    Regards,
    BSR.

    Yes, it's definately a strange rule to save the power where mobile battery consumes very little power compare to others as everyone knows. Since the management has their own way of thinking, you should follow the same. All the employees of the company should contact the management and share you views and request them to remove this rule as it's becoming an obstacle for the better communication. Apart from that, as an alternative way, you should always keep your battery completely charged before going to office and you may also purchase an same another battery so it can be used whenever the first battery becomes low.

    The reason Mobile Chargers are not allowed is that if all employees start using the Mobile chargers, it will cause problems to the Electrical points of the company.
    If everyone uses its own chargers and use it daily, it will really cause problems.

    Also in these companies Company Does provide Mobile chargers point where people can charge their mobiles of different companies.
    These charge points are normally kept at the cafeterias
    So use those points for charging mobiles or else charge your mobiles at your home

    It may feel too much for you.,

    But from the point of company, it may be a power saving view.

    You feel that one charger for yourself.

    If the whole company employees think like that in the same way, it will consume power.

    I think it is the policy of the company.

    I think every company will send one feedback form regarding the benefits of the company.

    That time you can raise this point and get it resolved.

    While getting work done in hugely reputable organization, the industry confidential one, so these are corporation's principle produced by their selves, which usually you need to follow. These kinds of information are going to be offered to you which ones it's likely you have signed.Most of firms currently have like guidelines, to stop employers lightness inside work. In the event that it genuinely creates a problem to you personally, you'll be able to just about all gather together and may discuss inside the supervision pertaining to this specific matter. Merely a personalized meeting with this supervision might remedy this specific issue.I believe, you will definately get a number of answer by simply executing meeting with this management.
    Cellular battery chargers do not distance themself a new huge volume of electricity plus on the flip side it simply makes use of half electricity compared to the lighting bulbs.
    You can make this supervision realize this point by simply placing your current point out this management.
    For those who accompany zero answer and then you can think about choosing a details cable television with you to definitely office environment plus if you wish to ask for your current cellphone then simply plug the idea to help computer.
    This particular method for you to additionally convience this supervision that you are relocating crucial report plus thats exactly why the product details cable television is being used.
    I believe your current supervision may well certainly currently have a great rationale to make this kind of rule. Maybe if perhaps anyone makes use of their particular private battery charger the idea brings about wastage of electricity in case everone makes use of this battery charger given by this company the idea preserves power. The company will need to have certainly provided woth the power of an universal battery charger i guess througgh which usually any varieties of mobiles is usually charged. That be an electrical keeping system created on the latest technology as compared to one's own chargers.

    I believe each enterprise believes the best due to the workforce and doesn't desire to inconvience these folks at all because a fantastic employer-management relationship is usually of having for a corporation to get to brand new altitudes plus development further. However if anyone with a people are having issues with this specific principle plus 're feeling inconvenient and then everybody or even a couple of you are able to proceed and ask for your current supervisor to switch this specific principle citing that all this complaints are experiencing complications caused by this. I am sure he'll almost certainly consider your current obtain and may even get a new rule.
    Cellular battery chargers plus charging you must not be permitted in the workplace throughout a cubicle hour.This practice if perhaps we expect irrespectively then an choice is quite proper choice needs to be obeyed by simply all.Though virtually all recharge their particular mobile in the home and often may well not.However this specific practice just isn't certainly great for enterprise as well as for customer.

    hi
    if you cannot charge your phone in the office, then what you will do in your office at the time of some emergency battery low condition. You should consult this problem with the boss of yours and tell him that please try and understand the problem that you are facing with such kind of ruthless decision.
    Kindly change this rule.
    Gud luck

    Re: Mobile chargers not allowed in office

    Your employer is absolutely right because this is a good technique to save the power in office premises because many employees work in the company and if everyone will be allowed to charge the battery of their mobiles then they will be irresponsible to their own duties and will be busy in charging the mobile and some of them will also think that we would charge the mobile in office and some of them will take it as excuse to be out of work for sometime so there are so many demerits of this action and if your employer does not allow you so he is right at his place because the first duty of manager is that he/she manage everything and make clear and strict rules for office for employees and all other workers so that thing makes a good management and the same is being done by your manager so you should not worry about this and let your manager do whatever he wants

    Your duty is that you become careful about your work because work is done in office premises and I don't think that you give more than 10 hours everyday for work in the company and other left 14 hours will be useful for you to complete all your other works that is why take at least 5 minutes from your personal time and charge your mobile when you are at home so you will not get any problem in office over the issue of charging the mobile and if there is any person in your family then you can request them to take this responsibility because you are working so you gets tired everyday and hope you do not get time to charge your mobile but only you can solve this problem and if you request to your manager then he will not understand because already he has made rules for you all so that can not be a good solution

    All the best

    Hi, You need not worry and waste your precious time on such petty issues. Dear, these are very manageable things and you can manage it on your own. You should expect your company to pay you the deserved amount on time and give you the right opportunities to grow. Rest other things can be overlooked. So, charge your phone at home and use it as per the battery capacity of the mobile phone. In addition, this is a very crucial time to groom your personality and enhance your skills, so focus on that and do not look here and there. Moreover, you have mentioned that your organisation is a reputed one so be happy to be a part of such an organisation. The brand name would definitely help to boost your career in future. So, wear a smile on your face and forget about the loopholes of the company. Thanks.
