Why does this always happen? I dont need a hint, the people weren't doing their jobs, or doing the barest of minimums.
long story short, the company downsized, ALOT, pretty much to weed out those who weren't doing much. so much so that the lead manager later invited me to a lunch to apologize on how I was let go. I was trying to do my job but if I cant contact people because they've wandered off to wherever...what can I do?
folks weren't just sitting at home watching tv and moving a mouse every 10minutes, people were taking trips to the beach. out shopping, taking trips, just living their best lives, meanwhile we're back at the office like what have we setup wrong? trying to ask questions on what their setup is at home to help them figure out issues but they'd be quiet because the truth of "oh, were at the lake this week and there's no signal way the hell out here" would sound pretty f**ked up.
Why don't people get that some folks actually work better in certain environments? some will just adapt to the freedom of working at home and focus and probably do more in less time, and others will just wander off to do whatever it is they want.
