Do you think it's fair?
People who are able to work long hours in the office are considered committed compare to those who went back on time. They are viewed as durable, energetic and being tipped for the best employee of the year.
In reverse, people who went home on time are considered uncommitted even they achieve the objective compare to those who stay until the late hour of the day to meet the same objective. They are viewed as lazy, unreliable and are not favored in the work force.
Okay, let's observe this from the different perspective and standing point of view.
People who work long hours in the office is considered inefficient compare to those who went home on time. They are viewed as slowpoke, not sophisticated and a disease to the company.
While those who always went home on time are considered efficient compare to those who have to stay until the late hour of the day, to meet the same target of course. They are viewed as intellectual, dynamic sophisticated and have high possibility to get promoted.
So, what is your employer's point of view? Which perspective takes your boss the most? You should prepare the strategy; otherwise, you mean nothing to your boss.
