    Personal business during office hours

    Our management never gives us any time to do any personal business during the day. If we have to go to the bank which opens during 9 to 5 then we are never allowed to go there. Previously we could do things over email but now even the email is blocked. If these are management decision then whom do we complaint to?

    Company is paying for the work...remember doing personal work in work place is prohibated....though it is common practice that people are doing personal work also at work place...

    After internet getting connected these type of work becomes very common....

    If company is restricted from doing personal work at work place...you can't complain to anyone as that will not stand....

    But you can discuss the issue of hampering your personal work also and ask for some resolution to met the same...

    There might be some wayout to get the same resolved.

    As this is your management decision and it has become such a problem that you can not even do your important work like going to bank than you all

    should take this matter to the management.
    If you all combinely put this matter in front of the management they will have to take necessary steps for solving your problem.

    These are genuine reasons and management will obviously give you some freedom.

    Possibly due to previous experiences of unnecessary use of such freedom management would have taken such decision.

    But if you will put forward your problems they will do some modifications.

    Tell them such things puts unnecessary pressure on you and your colleagues thus effects your work so please provide some sort of freedom so that

    you all could complete some necessary duties.

    Hello Friend,

    your management has been very rude to the employees,they haven't given you and other employees any extra time so that you all can do your important work.
    Even they have also blocked the email now this is very bad.

    you and all the employees can get together and go to the management and explain them your problems and they haven't any time to do out side work.
    Also you are not able to fulfill your family needs because whole day you all are engaged in the job.

    I am sure management will listen your problem when all the employees go together and keep all the problems that they facing in front of them.

    all the best
    thank you.

    Hello friend,
    I am sorry to be very harsh but the truth is that company pays you to work for them in the work place and not for the personal work.
    It is strictly forbidden to do personal work in the office. And so you can't claim for that.
    But if you have some emergency then in that case you can ask for leave for few hours from your company and I guess they will negotiate on this.
    Internet connection are provided for the company work and not for your personal mail.
    If you yet want to unblock the system then you can download spotflux and then install it and run after that all your block sites will get open.
    Thank you!!!

    We should not do any personal works during office hours.It is prohibited to do the personal work during office hours in any company.they are paying you for the work you are doing in office hours.Internet connection are available in office for doing office work and it is not for official works.so,if your work is serious then you have to take a half day leave and do your work but don't waste the office time for personal works.
    all the best
    thank you

    Hello Friend,

    Well, in these days corporate world has become a place for the machines where work is the only gospel. It is against company policy to to do personal work during official work. You have to understand that. But the management also needs to understand that people need to attend their other work as well. So, you should talk to the management about this issue and try to sort it once and for all. You company have to realize that as a human being employees also have their own life and other issues etc.

    Regarding the blocking of email at office, you can always use your smart phone to do the online banking at any time with a single click.

    Personal business during office hours never be allowed. It is very odd to the company/employees/customers. So such ieregularites have to ablish if any within the staff.

    Nobody should encourage such odd practice. It will lead to increase indiscipline/wastage of times/rumour among the customers as well as to the all employees of the

    company.Offfice boss must stop him from such bad activities, and no recommendations should be entertained against such odd practices.Without discipline no concern

    establishment/school/colleges/ even a Govt. can not go ahead. So, without hesitation give the employee warning and serve notice to abolish such practices within the

    office premises as well as during the time of office hours.

    Thank You,

    Hi Dear,

    I can understand your problem; however, you have to abide by the professional ethics when you are at your work place. You cannot force the management to work as per your convenience. Moreover, none of the firms allow their managers to take care of their personal matters during office hours. So, you would have to understand the constraints of the management also.

    In fact, we should try our best to complete our personal tasks either during holidays or during Saturdays because normally Saturdays are closed in corporate offices while Saturdays are open for banks or other Government offices.

    In case, Saturday is a working day for you, then you can request your manager to grant you a half day leave and do all your personal work.

    My dear friend, remember one thing in life - If you really aspire to climb the Corporate ladder, you have to follow all the rules and regulations laid down by your firm sincerely.

    hello guest,,
    there are various type of provision in a job and various rules and regulation are there.
    company should always take care about the comfort of the employee.
    there should be some free time either daily or weekly for the employee so that they can give time to their personal use and family.
    it is the right of the employee.
    but in some cases,in private firm,they hire employee at higher rate and use them for hours in a day.
    so,i think you should check the terms and condition of the job and how much leave you can take.
    so first find out these details and then according to that take some action.if anything going wrong or out of rules you may take help of law and police.you should also talk to higher authorities.
    thank you !!!
