After a tiresome meeting with the Great-Grand-Bosses, we are supposed to start our own internal team meetings. Me & my boss are part of the Great-Grand-Meeting. So we have to again schedule the meeting with our teams.
The first grand meeting has a fixed time. The second/other meeting moves based on when the 1st one ends.
After the 1st meeting. Me & my boss know we are drained. But my boss doesn't reveal it and asks me:
"Oh cool, We dial back at 11:00 am with the team"? (When the 1st (gruesome) meeting has happened between 8:00 am to 10:45 am.
I reply back saying "How about 11:15 am"?
Boss replies back "Okay, we'll keep it round - 12:00 pm"
Oh man he's very nice. He's quite older but still hard working. Our company is putting everybody into trouble. Our CEO is afraid that we would get into a slumber mode as everybody is working from home.
So he wants to ensure our minds are not tired with rest but with work.
But equating meetings to work , well we have spoken enough.
Perhaps, they want to make working-from-home much tougher than working-from-office.
That's exactly the strategy for some IT-Analphabets and prehistoric bosses...
doing home office a nightmare, people will be glad to come back to the office where they think they have more control.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Looks more like a factory-mindset, rather than a software company.
True. Since all are working from home. The CEO doesnt want to take chance. He wants all the work logs of all the people visible to him. And conference has to be only Video chats. & So many other rules in place.
Once the lockdown is over, we'll be back to the normal slacking routine. It should not be a problem.
The CEO also happens to be the founder as well. If he's really that dumb, I'm not sure if he could have continued to feature in the top Millionnaire's list in country. I don't think he's dumb. He just wants to ensure people settle for a new routine properly than take it as Corona-holidays.
And the only meeting that he takes part in the morning detailed meeting. He's doing plenty to support the government. So we have good respect for him.
It's getting worse with films, TV series etc. The recent War of the Worlds on BBC was an appalling travesty of PC/Wokje nonsense, and paid only mild lip service to Wells' original. Especially galling for me as I live 5 minutes from the spot where the Martians landed.
