Working late beyond office hours – do you do overtime for the right reason?

Overtime in some companies are paid, commonly practiced and properly monitored. In others where it isn’t applicable to the nature of the business, the management thinks they’re paying their employees with the right package monthly that overtime doesn’t equate to additional pay if it ever happens.

Paid or not paid, what is the rule?

The right reason is when there’s a task that is URGENT, IMPORTANT, and CANNOT WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT NORMAL BUSINESS HOURS. The right attitude is to do it with grace, optimism, and due diligence; there’s no point doing a job with a hard heart because the work result may not turn favorable for the company in relation to its progress and profitability.

Overtime as much as possible should be avoided because it is not beneficial for everybody if overdone. An employee gets tired and will lose personal and social life, there will be expenses on office utilities bill, foods, transportation, and payroll if it’s paid. But if overtime is done precisely, it doesn’t only profit the company but if employees are duly acknowledge for a job well done, can instill on staff loyalty and self fulfillment.

    neo-liberalism does not want that you are talking about OVERTIME. just work and keep your mouth shut. do not demand more money from your boss! be a slave and lose your dignity. work. don’t make a debate.
