要數打工仔們最討厭的返工日常,肯定是開會!排山倒海的工作 + 無窮無盡的會議 = OT無極限!近日就有網民於討論區大呻自己返工8個鐘,竟開足5個鐘會,差點就需於Office度過Lonely Christmas! 樓主開Post分享瘋狂開會經歷,她表示逢星期五都要開1小時的部門例會,但每次都會超時,連午膳時間也被佔用。更悲慘的是,另一場會議緊隨其後,最終樓主直踩兩場會議,完全沒有空檔吃飯。當她以為開會馬拉松終於要完結之際,上司隨即召見商討公事,結束時已是6點。整天下來,樓主完全沒有時間處理公務,最終需OT到近12點才能離開,令她相當崩潰:「搞到我要爭啲喺公司過聖誕。」 一眾網民紛紛表示同情,亦有人「同病相憐」:  「平安夜都要喺公司過⋯⋯慘!」 「開聖誕聯歡會?開咁耐⋯⋯」...
一場疫情,顛覆了全球打工仔的工作型態,在家工作、混合工作模式等愈趨普遍,是否意味着未來職場還存在許多變數?最近,有位網民就於討論區發起有關香港實行4天工作制可能性的討論,你又覺得可行嗎? 樓主是一名建築公司的HR,他分享早前與老闆談及有關4天工作的新聞,老闆著他研究公司實行的可能性。樓主認為建築公司的工作時間本來就不固定,加上現時已轉為彈性工作時間,員工可自由安排上班時間,所以實行4天工作制對公司影響不大,應該可行。但樓主又表示:「我調轉諗諗,其實係香港好難有工可以返4天工作」,續問廣大網民:「大家覺得自己份工有冇咁嘅可能?」 普遍網民都認為,香港要實行4天工作制怕是不可能之事: 「呢度喺香港,可以唔使討論」 「我相信冇話唔得,不過要睇下係乜嘢工種」、「香港大多數係服務性行業,你5天工作都已經難,何況4天?」 「冇乜可能,香港人搵錢至上」 「絕對可以,但人工減半」 「其實都無話唔得嘅,問題係你老闆可以嗎?」 「4天工作唔係問題,個問題係你可唔可能係4天工作下做完自己嘅工作量」 (按此看原po)...
Quit U投身餐飲開咖啡店,本已跌破世俗眼鏡,有個90後女生還要再打破咖啡配意粉的定律,「我不會給退路自己。當好想好想做到時,就只可以向前衝。」頂着一頭型格金髮的Ivy有着緩慢柔和的聲線,但說出這話時很堅定。最後真的給她衝出一條路,養到一個團隊,而且原則仍能堅持:「如果沒了初心,那就只是搵錢而已。」 ▪ 想從事「cafe」有關嘅行業?即刻撳入嚟睇睇! ▪ 「沖」破視障界限!咖啡師靠聽覺手感沖調拉花:真想做便會出盡力 「如果留退路,就不會盡全力」 離地鐵站10分鐘步程的一個屋苑巷子裏,有一面素淨的牆,一棵油綠的盆栽靜靜地呼吸着。7年過去,Ivy仍在默默做好所愛的咖啡、麵包。那種熱愛,還強到讓她當年即使設計學科已讀到最後一年,仍毅然Quit U。「當時在朋友的咖啡店做兼職,愈做愈鍾意——很喜歡咖啡和麵包那種時間蘊釀後,帶來很多不同變化的感覺。」慢慢萌生了開店的想法,但學業與事業難以兼顧,又眼見設計行業總要聽命客人,做不到心中所想,知不會入行,就決定放棄學位。 「屋企人都會想我有張畢業證書在手,有個保障。但我覺得如果每樣東西都留退路,就不會盡全力。」而且她一心就是想做咖啡業,畢業與否不算重要,「又覺得當時咖啡行業正興起,如果不把握時機,到所有人都在開,成功機會就又低了。」...
