Being Physically Present Does Not Mean You’re Working

Just because you’re physically present doesn’t mean you’re actually getting work done. I don’t see the reasoning as to why any employee should be working for more than 4 hours a day (4 hours of actual hard work a day, not just mindlessly half-assing your tasks.) I’m sick of this notion that by somehow being a warm body in a room you’re successfully doing your job.

It simply isn’t true.

That’s my biggest gripe with Corporate America and businesses in general. They have unrealistic ways to measure their employees. If your employees are getting their work done in a time-efficient manner then stop pressuring them to be in the office. The appearance of work ISN’T work.

That is all. Thank you for listening to my TED talk.
