Does sitting late at office means you are a hard worker?I always had this question in mind as I have seen many of my Bosses having this impression. They are least bothered about how early we come but they just notice how early we leave or how late we sit. They take it as a criteria to find out people who are working hard and people who have no work. Even though there is a punch in and out system, no one checks the punch in timing, everyone is interested in knowing the punch out timing. Even if we leave on time, people are capable of asking 'Why so early today?'
I do not think leaving early means we are jobless, we might be coming early or we are quick at doing things. But no one thinks that way. A lazy person who keeps postponing his work or a person who is slow at work or a late comer can also sit late to finish their work. But that does not mean they are hard working and only they work hard and others are jobless. I am really pissed of with this attitude of managers.
