When a privilege becomes an entitlement!
It seems the more people want to vary their work schedule, and the more the business complies the more people want!
I was speaking to some friends of mine who own their own businesses, in retail. They tell me “stories” about their staff always wanting time off at the busiest of times,holidays!
They tell me they usually have to concede something, like an early finish time or half a day.
Then everything goes haywire when one staff member has “earned” time off. The others feel they should get the same just because..it’s not fair!
Ok give it a rest folks. We all go to work and there is something called a work schedule.
Don’t spend all your time trying to figure out how much time “You are not going to work”.
It makes it easy for the business.
I say to them go find those who want to work!
When you get time off to go to the dentist, the doctor , daycare etc etc it’s a privilege, especially when every time it happens to eat into your work schedule!
Don’t ever be a doctor or a nurse! That’ s all I say.
Great employers will always be flexible..but don’t risk a privilege becoming an entitlement.
