    Usage of company’s contact number for personal use

    In our organisation everyone has been provided with an official number in which calls with co-employees are free and others are being charged. Will this be creating any problem if I use my professional number as private number and if the limit exceeds then it will be deducted from my salary?

    Re: Usage of company’s contact number for personal use

    Hi friend

    I think you should keep your private and professional lives separate and so thus should buy a new mobile for personal use..I dont think you should mix up both and thus try to be more professional..Also i think if you start using your profesional mobile for your personal calls,even though you are paying for it an dnot doing anything wrong, it may irk your manager and he may have the opinion that you are less professional and not at the level which he expects you to so this may be a bad mark on your reputation..

    Thus it would be better if you buy another mobile for your personal use but if you have any financial constraints then you can use it for meanwhile but make sure that that you dont use it excessively especially during the working hours..Try making only important calls with it and the rest you can go home and make them from your landline..

    Good luck and think wisely before doing anything in haste

    The official numbers are given by the companies to the employee so that it will be helpful for the company do to the day to day afffairs of the company. It helps you company to easily communicate with you. You can use that number only for your official use and it should not be used for the personal purpose. If you want to use a number for personal use then it is better you take another number for the same. The official numbers also helps to reduce the cost of calling because for calling the co workers then it will be a free call. More over if you use your official number as the personal number then even after the office hours your boss will call you and give instruction. If you have two numbers then you can off the official phone after the office hours so that your office thoughts do not disturb you. More over most of the boss do not like to use your official number as your personal number.

    It is not professional at all.

    Unfortunately, in the absence of you, if any of your personal friends call to that number and manager lift it,

    It won't look good.

    use office phone for official use only.

    In the office itself, they provide some extensions through which you can call to your personal numbers

    Hello friend,

    As the company is providing you the contact number for the company purpose you are not supposed to use it for your own purpose.Because,when you are speaking to your family there may be a call from one of your client you may miss it so it is a better idea to use a separate contact number for company and personal use.

    Dear if you would ignore this thing then it would really be good for you and for your job and career because when the company has provided separate phones to each employee only for official contacts then you should use that phone according to the rules and if you are trying to make that phone as your personal then you are going wrong and it may affect your salary and incentives because when the phones are charged to call any other number excluding the office then you should not use that phone in your personal calling and if you would not stop this activity then the bill of that phone may be deducted from your salary and when you would get deduction in your salary then you would not feel well as like others so that dear you should care about the terms and conditions of the office and do not use that phone as your personnel

    All the best

    I do believe you must absolutely consider some thing about your missing and also missing ID card..If you hold a vital placement anywhere subsequently absolutely an individual can wrong use the ID card if perhaps they may have their hands on it..This can result in various difficulties for you..So it's far better you acquire essential action as soon as possible..

    Firstly you must submit your cops gripe and also see to it you allow them to have each info - in which you obtained previous found this and also in which you previous stored it..At which will place relating for your supposition this became lost..

    You actually must provide the police together with the essential details...I pray people realize its as well as doesn't enter in the hands and wrists of somebody inappropriate that will unquestionably wrong use it..
    Its not an important situation in fact, you can aquire one more from your corporation you happen to be functioning for. However, you could possibly pay back a certain amount or possibly even longer to receive it.

    This company will probably prohibit the particular elderly one particular so that it wont be neglected by way of anybody, thus cops involvement really is necessary.

    In the event that after that you can writing for a day-to-day announcement papers about the loss and your contact info for any locator's to succeed in you're going to be extremely helpful.

    Because the card a person missing had been the privately Identification card, we percieve numerous cases associated with misusing this sort of card, so for being ended up saving out of any type of problems later on, you have to enroll your cops gripe with regard to that.

    You now should explain to this kind of for the corporation, when it essential send a replica associated with cops gripe, so that they make that will card broken seeing that not one person case wrong use this with your company. You must furthermore obtain for the corporation to reissue the particular Identification card for your requirements of this name.
    This isn't a serious issue should you have dropped the ID card.

    Firstly get and also converse for the HR of this corporation and also tell him that will in error you could have missing the ID card through going for a small expenses a person will get a new ID card. But repeat this during the first that you hold off you can not access the corporation simply and also plus it will demonstrate that you are a sloppy man or woman so it's far better to talk with the particular HR as soon as possible.

    Make sure you tell them to bar the actual card to ensure that no one access through that card.
