Boss, quit playing around! — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
Question: It's my boss. While he is a very intelligent man, he spends too many hours a
day playing games on the computer instead of completing his work. Last
week, he had some priority jobs to complete. When I asked him about it,
he said he was Christmas shopping.
I have called him on it and
told him he isn't fooling anyone; we know when he's not working. I've
told him that his delaying completing his work is affecting my work. He
nods sheepishly but does nothing to improve the situation.
of his work relates to getting clients to pay their bills. It all seems
to work out in the end, but I'm at my wits' end and don't know what to
do anymore. The four other men in the office do their work, but a lot
of what my boss doesn't finish affects them, as well.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I would appreciate your help. -- Kim
