    Personal visitors during office hours

    One of the colleagues invites friends during the office hours. Her phone line is found busy most of the time as they have been using it for making personal calls. I have requested the colleague not to do so but nothing helped. Please suggest a way out.

    Re: Personal visitors during office hours

    Hi friend

    I think your colleague should concentrate more on her work rather than stressing on such things. She should understand her responsibility towards her company and not divert her attention by calling her friends to her workplace. She should realise that she is an esteemed employee of this company and should not let such things lower her image in front of the management, in case they come to know about the same.

    Its good that you have told her many times to refrain from indulging in such things. But if she has not paid any heed to your advice then its her loss and you should not blame yourself for it. Rather you should give it one more try and who knows you will succedd in this attempt. Meet her during the lunch break or after office hours. Tell her that you have been trying to tell her again and again that she should not invite friends during office and that they should not make personal calls from your phone line. This is certainly very wrong behaviouir on her part and if this comes out in the open then she will have to pay heavily for it. So its better that she pays heed to your advice and thus save herself from some severe punishment. This is your last warning to her and if this time also she behaves in the same manner, then you would be forced to tell your boss about it.

    Then I am sure she will listen to you due to the fear of the punishment that she may get and hopefully will never do such a thing again. But inn case she doesnt listen to you this time too then you can go to your boss, as promised, and discuss this matter with him. Tell him that how your colleague is calling her friends to her office and how they are using her line for making personal calls. this is certainly wrong on her part and you have tried to stop her many times but without any effect. So finally you have been forced to come and take his help in this matter.

    I am sure your boss will teach her such a lesson which will teach her how to behave in the futrure and not to indulge in such a behaviour . This will also be good for her future as she may face trouble later on too if she continues in this way.

    Good luck and Thanks

    Hi,

    You must tell your colleague that she is making a mistake.
    She should concentrate on her work rather than indulging in personal matters in office premises.
    She should not call her friends in the office premises.

    She should be explained that if she keep chatting on phone then the outcomes may be bad.
    The phone is only for important work and to chat and enjoy.

    If she behaves in office as if it is her house then it is wrong.
    She should behave professionally in the office premises.
    She should focus on making her career in the premises.
    This behavior could affect her image and reputation in front of other colleagues.

    As she is your colleague, it would be not so good to tell her many times that it is wrong.
    If it is disturbing the work for you and other colleagues, then you must talk about it to your boss.

    Boss will certainly help out in changing her behavior.

    Thankyou

    Hello friend
    it’s a serious matter I think you should have to talk to your colleagues that listen friend this not the right time to do this type of work specially in the working hours please change your behaviors otherwise I have to taking a complaint against you then send it to the higher authority persons. Then monitor on your colleagues and if he/she will change their behaviors and work properly then it’s OK otherwise immediately send a complaint application against her and sent it to your higher authority…

    Thanking you hopes you like my suggestion….

    See as a colleague you cannot do much in this situation, the best thing you can do for her is to try and make her understand that she can't perform such practices during office hours, and if she continues to do so she could have to face some serious problems. If she understands than it is well n good but if she doesn't than let her do what she wants. You have performed your duty as a colleague and as a friend. These things cannot go more than few days. She will definitely have to face her boss anger which might stop her from doing such things in the office.

    Hi, It's good that you consider your work more important that personal matters when you are at work place. You can always check your colleague in a friendly manner and let her know that she/he should avoid meeting friends and family at work place or stay busy on phone instead of working sincerely. Tell her/him that such an attitude might distract her and take her/him away from climbing the ladder of success. If she/he insists on carrying her casual attitude the you must take this matter to your reporting manager. Thanks

    Re: Personal visitors during office hours

    hello,
    its a big issue with this type of employees and its becoming a fashion fo them to bring their friends to their offices.first thing you say her that its not the place that she is thinking and say her some good words in your own way and demand that if she continues the same severe action will be taken regarding it and you wont bear that from the next time.
    if she continues the same then give her good coating in your style.
    if she doesnot listen then give a complaint to your boss regarding the situation and say your boss that you are fed up with the situation and take a good decision regarding it.
    thank you..............

    Hi
    If she's having personal visitors in the office and her line is also always busy, then I must tell you that you are in need of taking a really harsh decision towards her. Because if you'll continue to be an easy going boss, till then she won't stop her careless attitude therefore if you want to restrict all these activities, then call her and give her the ultimatum that either work properly or else you'll be fired.
    Gud luck

    Re: Personal visitors during office hours

    Well this is an issue so you should check it out!
    for some emergency or important situation , yes both are permitted to call anyone or to stick over the office phone but that too not for the long time.
    But otherwise this is not allowed and if she works under you then strictly warn her that this cannot be acceptable in future else there would be some very strict step taken .If she is at your level itself where you can not be strict with her and even after pocking a lot many times she doesnt understands then you have the liberty to move to your any senior and complaint against her.
    Moreover you can try check out her daily work and prepare the report and submit it along with to the senior.

    Thankyou

    Re: Personal visitors during office hours

    I think the co-worker must target more to be with her function as opposed to worrying in such things. The girl must recognize the girl liability towards the girl corporation and not change the girl attention by way of contacting the girl good friends to the girl workplace. The girl must appreciate in which nancy an renowned staff of the corporation and cannot make similar things lower the girl graphic before the control, in the event that they go to understand about the same.

    It is good that you've got shared with her more often than not to avoid involving in such things. When my wife not compensated every heed on your advice then its the girl damage along with you must not fault oneself to get it. Somewhat you'll want to provide it with an additional attempt to to know you will succedd in this attempt. Fulfill the girl over the lunch hour or maybe right after office environment hours. Tell her in which you happen to be attempting to tell her over and over that she should not encourage good friends through office environment and that they should not generate personal telephone calls through the mobile phone line. This is actually really inappropriate behaviouir to be with her portion and when the following arrives while in the open then she should fork out closely to get it. And so it is much better that she pays heed on your information and for that reason help save their self from a few extreme punishment. Here's your very last caution to the girl and when on this occasion also your lover functions in a similar manner, then you could be required to educate leader with regards to it.

    Then I believe she is going to hear to your account as a result of worry from the consequence that she could get along with i hope will not do such a thing again. Nevertheless resort scenario your lover doesnt hear to your account on this occasion too then you can go to your leader, as guaranteed, along with examine the following topic along with him. Let him know in which how your co-worker is usually contacting the girl good friends to the girl office environment and in what way they are employing the girl set for making personal calls. this is definitely inappropriate to be with her portion and you've got used to stop the girl more often than not although with virtually no effect. And so finally you happen to be required to come along with get his / her assist in this matter.
    See being a co-worker you can't do significantly in cases like this, the top reaction you can have on her is usually in an attempt to generate the girl recognize that she are not able to conduct such techniques through work hours, and when your lover carries on to accomplish this your lover could possibly have to face a few significant problems. In the event that your lover is aware of than perfectly deborah good in case your lover doesn't than permit her to do what exactly your lover wants. You've got done the responsibility being a co-worker along with being a friend. These matters are not able to move greater than handful of days. She is going to certainly have to face the girl leader frustration that might end the girl from doing similar things while in the office.

    Re: Personal visitors during office hours

    Hey Friend,
    Personal visitor should be prohibited during office hours.

    In fact many of the companies does not even allow to keep a mobile phone during office hours.

    You have been good to her and asked her to stop this practices but if she does not pay attention its her fault and she will be the looser.

    You should ask her once more and also warn her that if she does not listen then you will complain to the boss about it.

    You may also try to make her understand that she need to concentrate on her future and work during office time.

    If she is catched by the boss the she might get fired, you may say this sort of things to bring her on the track.

    Hi Friend...



    This is not the correct deed done by your colleague.She should realize her mistake.

    If she does not do so,kindly tell your colleague about her mistake.

    If then also,she is not ready to accept her mistake,then write a written application about her deeds done in the work place and send it to the higher authority.

    Immediately, the action will be taken by the higher authority against her.



    Thanks...

    Hello,

    Unfortunately, she is violating the professional rules and regulations. During office hours she
    should be concentrated on her work rather than talking to her friends over phone. Morever, in
    working environment such activity is surely causing a nuisance to other employees. You should
    talk to her and tell her this sort of activity will not be tolerated during office hours and she will
    be penalised if she keeps continue like this.

    Bye,

    Re: Personal visitors during office hours

    There should proper security personnel deployed at the office.. One must behave themselves at office its not an community center where people meet each other come and go.. There must be reason for meeting any of the employees in the company.. If there are frequent visitors in the company this will definitely damage the environment of the company.. If your are disturbed by your colleagues activities then better report the matter immediately without fail,because boss will misunderstand you also if you don't concentrate on your work,as your attention is diverted.. You should immediately ask your manager about the rule that stops visitors during the visiting hours.. Lunch time its ok that too outside the office premises only.. Only employees should be allowed inside there must an form that needed to be filled up at gate stating the reason that is need to be mandatory if there is valid reason your allowed otherwise employee should go out and meet .. People cannot just come into office without permission that is needed to be curbed on your office.. She making personal calls will have to be noticed by office management they can only avoid employees using the phone..

    Re: Personal visitors during office hours

    the issue which you have mentioned is becoming common in most of the company where the employees are using facilities such as phone ,fax ,internet etc for their personal use so as a colleague you have done your job of advising her not to practice such job now it becomes her duties to understand that what she is doing is not good for her and company 's betterment.you can advice her to meet her friends after office hour or lunch break .you should also give her strict warning of complaining her activities to her boss as issue like this thing always require some kind of warning as the person does not understand what a terrible thing he/she is doing and even also she does not understand the problem then you should lodge a complaint about her so that from then onwards she would hesitate in doing such kind of deed.
    Hope you will come out from your problem..

    Re: Personal visitors during office hours

    hello dear guest!!
    actually your friend is doing wrong.
    public has more hope from the employer and also companies hope that their employee are working well.
    he is cheating with both.
    you should tell him about it that it is not right.
    and if he don't listen to him then tell him that you will complain against him.
    in that case also his behaviour does not changes then tell to your senior about it so that they can take serious action against him.
    thank you !!!
