Overtime unwritten rules: director of the office lights on, the lamp section chief dare not turn off, the staff dry waiting……


“When the light in the director’s office is on, the section chief dare not turn off the light, and the section staff have to wait.”This kind of person works overtime, the whole situation adds the negative phenomenon to become the norm in some units, has become the common thing, lets the worker have hardship unspeakable.As a leader of a unit, setting an example and taking the lead in setting an example can indeed play a benchmarking leading role, and also promote the formation of a good political ecology and working atmosphere in the unit.Leaders have meetings, research and deployment during working hours, and work overtime after work to manage business progress. Their status and style should be praised. Their love and dedication to work attitude is also worth learning from subordinates.Leaders often need all kinds of professional information to work overtime, and it is normal for subordinates to provide assistance.However, if the leader works overtime and makes the subordinates to wait, or even wait all night without any task, it will inevitably make the subordinates complain.In the final analysis, formalism and bureaucracy are contributing to this phenomenon.In this regard, leading cadres in addition to correcting the wrong concept of “official standard”, but also enhance the ability of overall planning and coordination.If the leader can have a clear plan before working overtime, determine what to want, make overall arrangements in advance, and ask relevant departments and subordinates to prepare corresponding information in advance, it will be more efficient, less wasteful, and more effective, which is beneficial to both matters and situations.Overtime work can create more social wealth in a certain period of time, but if overtime work is so much that it is “excessive”, the harm may be greater.The individual wants to study business, raise efficiency, when the unit is arranging a job, also should consider as a whole, pressure burden reduces burden again already, reduce passive overwork diligently, avoid invalid overwork.A friend works in a publishing house. In the past, due to a lot of work, soliciting manuscripts, soliciting manuscripts and reviewing manuscripts, he always can’t finish his work. Working overtime at night has become a common thing.Recently, my friend changed his way of working and became more efficient. He tried to finish his work during office hours. After a few weeks, he went home on time almost every day and did a good job.My friend said, “It’s great to have dinner together as a family.”Going home for dinner was the most common thing in life.A lot of people remember the scene when they were called home for dinner by their elders in their childhood. The busy figure of their mother in the kitchen and the aroma of dishes sent out by big bowls and small dishes on the table are lingering memories in their minds.Today, as we struggle in the workplace, working day and night on our ideals, many of us have forgotten what it’s like to have dinner with the family.It is not easy to go home on time, and overtime is the norm.Why do people always work overtime?First, personal work efficiency is low, the work is not finished.The same work, some people clear thinking, quick, some people can not find the feeling, touch the head.If the business is not familiar, work procrastination, work time can not finish the work, overtime at night is inevitable, or even “long” in the office.Second, unit management is not scientific, the more work more.Some units do not pay attention to employees’ right to rest, obviously not urgent work, tight work, but to close to the end of the work before the meeting, the arrangement of tasks, this unreasonable work rhythm, magnify the tension, increased the burden of overtime.Third, there are misunderstandings in social concepts, ineffective overtime.Even though some organizations can leave work on time, due to the formation of a “overtime culture” unconsciously, it seems that leaving work on time has become a synonym for not being active at work.They compete with each other to see who stays up long and leaves late when they can get off work on time.This kind of unnecessary overtime, which is time-consuming and overstaffed, is particularly repugnant.It should be admitted that effective overtime work can create more social wealth in a certain period of time.In Japan, South Korea and Singapore, the culture of working overtime was an important factor in their rapid economic growth.But more importantly, if overtime is too much to “excessive”, the harm may be greater: frequent overtime affects family happiness, aggravates psychological stress, resulting in occupational diseases are also more prominent.As for the unnecessary overtime work of overstaffing and low efficiency, it is of no benefit to economic and social development.It is not only in line with the legal system but also with the trend of The Times to strictly implement the eight-hour working day system stipulated by the Labor Law and enable employees to live a happy and decent life.Of course, do not advocate excessive overtime, does not mean to allow perfunctory work.On the one hand, individuals should pay attention to study business, improve ability, avoid procrastination.On the other hand, when arranging work, the unit should plan well according to the priority of things, especially fully consider the time requirements, not only to pressure the staff, but also to reduce the burden, so that the work task and time requirements match.When it is found that some people often work overtime, should carefully analyze the reason: is the workload increased, the work flow is not smooth?Or is the business unfamiliar, incompetent, inefficient?And then adapt to the situation, improve arrangements, strengthen training, build capacity.For unavoidable and unavoidable overtime work, compensation should be given in time, and efforts should be made to reduce passive overtime work, avoid invalid overtime work, eliminate unnecessary overtime work, unpaid overtime work, so that employees can always maintain positive energy, good mood, so that work and life relaxation in an orderly, loose degree, rhythm is more reasonable.It is hoped that more units can solve the problem of “excessive overtime”, and that more people can finish their work efficiently and with high quality, leave work on time every day, and have a pleasant dinner with their families.(Required reading for public)
