    No personal calls allowed in office like schools

    In schools we were not allowed with any cell phones as we were children but what to say now when we are grown up, doing a job where the boss asks not to entertain any personal call during office hours no matter how important the call is.

    Hi
    The ambience of your office seems to be very strick. That is why these rules are applied on you. But no worries, you can use the cell phones for important calls in your lunch time, or by going out of the office or by going in the toilet :P
    Well, if the rules are extra heavenly bounded then there should be a little bit of unfairity.

    Hi friends,

    I think your question is wrong because nowadays many students carry the cellphones in school .
    Present generation is developed and he carry cell phone the 1st class student also in school.
    So this the not important you can carry the cellphone in your company.
    You can any call you can go for silent area like bathroom and company out cuts and canteen also but don't speak in office.

    So your problem is solved.

    Thanks!!!

    GOOD LUCK.........

    Dear your boss is absolutely right because when you were child, you were able to break the rules but this time you have been youth and this thing shows that this is your responsible age in which you have to prove yourself because this time you are in job and if you will not be in manners and will not follow the rules of the company then how will you prove yourself that is why you should not be angry with the action of your boss, and you should follow the instructions and rules of the company and if you will keep your attitude, simple, candid, modest and disciplined then only you will be able to perform well and impress your boss and accept all arguments of your boss and you will have to because they gave you the job to survive and when you get lunch time then you should make your personal and most important calls

    All the best

    hello friends..

    ##it may be depending on the company rules and regulations

    ##some of the companies allow the personal that are important only

    ##if you get a call take a 5 min break and went out side and speak the call

    ##rules are varied from company to company

    ##if it is personal ask your HR manager and talk to him

    all the best

    Dear Aspirant,

    It is too much.If it is your habit to be on phone always,you may be restricted,but if it is not your habit,then you should not be restricted to entertain the phone calls.I think it is not your personal problem.This may be a common problems to many employees.if it is a common problem,meet your boss together & say the fact that we are always busy in office works & the phone/mobile is the means of contact with my near & dear one.We are not misusing it.So kindly allow to entertain a personal call.

    If you are entertained,it is alright,otherwise meet the next higher boss & represent your problems.Also request to allow the calls for limited time.

    Hope you will get rid of your problem.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Hello..

    Don't take me wrong , but it seems that you are new in job sector. Yes , friend it is there , that you cannot attend any personal calls during office hours. Understand one thing , that everyone have a important call during office hours or after the office, so as you are saying everyone should attend the calls, but if everyone will attend the call what will happen to work in office.
    On the other hand I will surely support you that , at least some important call should be pick up.
    But friend , if you are working for some other people , you have to follow their rules.
    I hope you understand.
    thank you.

    Hello,As per companies point of view your bosses opinion is right..He needs his employees to perform well and help the firm to groW up..But this has manY drawbacks..When a family member has to convey a important message to the worker it cannot be done..So the employees should discuss this among yourself and approach your boss with a valid reason and convince him..Thank you..

    The statement which you depicted here is it nice for all, for all moments? I think totally ban on personal call is not right.When you implement such mandatory rules then there will be chaos among the staff.When an employee will violate this rule then naturally all employees will try to violate whenever you charge,in reality you will get no proof.

    Under the circumstances as a manager you are to tackle another problem preventing employee not to entertain personal call.You are to give importance regarding yourself too.you are also prohibited not to entertain personal call as a result at the emergency time you can not receive phones from your wife/son/daughter even if they in danger.So I think total ban on personal call is not right it is the personal resposibility to control yourself from refraining personal call.Because you are civilized then your activity to office must be normal & civilized.

    Thank you,

    Hiii,
    Not using cellphones during the office hours will increase your concentration on your work. Moreover it will enhance the quality of your work which will benefit you personally.You might get promotions and bonus. Besides that if someone is allowed to use cellphones he/she will spend most of their time on this only. So the phone calls should be restricted to only the important and urgent ones so that you van concentrate on your studies well.

    There are many offices which have the same restrictions, if your boss doesn't wants it don't use it.

    Actually there are many reasons due to which such restrictions are imposed like

    Many of the employee misuse the facility of using cell phones and unnecessarily waste time

    Also if you talk it creates noise which can disturb your colleagues.

    It effects the discipline of the office.

    There are some conditions when you need to call or receive a call at that time you can talk at lunch time or if its really urgent you can move to an isolated place

    to talk or can use message facility of your mobile phone to exchange any important information.

    phone. Try to use it as least as possible at your office hours

    Dear Friend,
    In most of the office there are strict rules that no personal calls should be attained during the office hours.

    You have to follow the rules of the people who have employed you.

    But if there are very much important call then you can go to the canteen or bathroom to attain the call.

    The office is a place to work and no one would allow you to entertain personal thing during this period of time.

    During the lunch time you may make personal calls.

    GOOD LUCK..!!!

    Hi aspirant

    Such kind of restrictions vary from company to company and so you should definitely try and abide by the rules of your company. But ofcourse it is not fair if your boss is not allowing you to entertain even urgent calls which is definitely not done. Your boss should not misuse his power in such a way and should definitely think about his employees before making such strict rules. So its better that you along with some other employees go and talk to your boss regarding this.

    Tell your boss that all the employees are disappointed with the rule by which the employees are not allowed to entertain any phone calls during the ofice hours even if they are urgent. According to you this is office and not a school, so the employees should be given some freedom atleast and not dealt with like some school children. All the employees are highly dissatisfied with this rule and want him to look into this matter. they hope that he will take a decision in their favour and thus change the rule accordingly.

    I hope that your boss is able to understand you otherwise you can even take this matter to the higher authorities. Good luck and thanks
