As the global spread of Covid-19 transmission continues to spiral out of control, our government has decided to again extend the Movement Control Order (MCO) by two weeks, leaving many companies in Malaysia with little choice but to roll out their Working From Home (WFH) policies, in a bid to keep business afloat.
JobRewards has also responded to the health crisis by transitioning all operations online since last week, and we have shared from our experience about how we have coped with remote working by following five simple steps outlined in 5 Steps To Boost Your Working From Home Productivity.
But it seems that WFH can be a paradoxical experience for some employees. While remote working creates a greater degree of flexibility and freedom for most workers, a minority may actually find themselves on the opposite side of the scale from freedom. They feel suffocated from the nightmares of incessant demands from their bosses, and as a result more stressed out than when working in the office. WFH may not be all sunshine and rainbows after all.
Whether it is the subconscious lack of self-awareness about being hard on people, or the direct result from the arising scepticism about the workings and concept of WFH, let us identify and recognise signs of excessive tendencies your bosses may exhibit toward you.
1. They micromanage you
2. They change their priorities every now and then
"After working halfway through the report, they suddenly change their minds again and inform you that the meeting will be postponed..."
3. They rule with an iron fist
4. They treat everything as emergency
"Any new ideas coming to their minds, or even minor issues on the rise, they feel the urge to instruct you right away..."
5. They are overly demanding
