    Which just reaffirms my opinion that the Great Resignation is absolutely not "people just don't want to work". It's "People just don't want to work... for you."
    UBI should finish off the sh-tty bosses. They have relied on employment at gunpoint for the last 150 years. Goodbye to all that.

    Yeah, I've intereviewed a few prospective employees (just hired one, yay!), and working remotely was a condition for each one of them. I smiled every time they said it.

    In gripe news, I still don't know what my position will be in a month as they still haven't posted the new manager/director positions. I'll be applying for a manager job, likely not getting it, and then will have to apply for my current supervisory job once those are settled. I could end up promoted, or demoted, or anything in between.


    I am very unlikely to stick around if demoted. Nuts to that. "Thank you for dedicating your life to our hospital system during these past two trying years. Now go get your shine box."

    Many of us have worked remotely - at least most of the time - for 2 years. That's enough time to make settled habits. Why force your workforce, if they don't want to, to disrupt that again? To what possible benefit?
    Yea. Very much so. My company has totally shifted from a planned "collaborative pens" with hoteling of desks to a hybrid work system where the primary work is from home for as many as possible. It would be nice to see more companies do that. Works really well.

    I know it's not for everyone, but at least let it be for those who thrive at it.

    (and I've seen multiple reports pointing out that far more people are looking for jobs with flexible on site requirements than not)

I am managing an activation the first few weeks but am going to request parking or expensed parking because I will need to be in the office by 7:00am.

    Silently screaming myself.

    Told my boss I have ADHD.

    She told me "don't claim that. You don't have it."

    I bit my tongue and walked away.

    So sorry, Scarlet. I had that day two weeks ago. I went home early and TBH it was the best choice. I addressed the issue as an adult the next day and resolved it without bloodshed.

    Silently SCREAMING at my desk right now. Seriously.

    Taking a deep breath. Going to enjoy a quick lunch break, look at Twitter or something.

    Maybe I should go outside for a walk. It's supposed to be nice out.

    Last night, coworker had her phone on watching videos on a high volume when I was attempting to dispense medication and finish charting. I told her she was causing a distraction and making me lose focus. I told her she was making it hard for me to work, and she turned me into the *******.

    To my 20 year old coworkers:

    You're not supposed to have video chats in the office. Especially in the presence of PHI.

    I shouldn't have to explain this to you.

    As a semi-retired small business owner I despise sitting down with my one employee during review/goal setting. The guy is a real PIA. Always pushing for more, always questioning why I question his performance. I hate these reviews.

    BTW, I'm also the employee (ha). And this non-objective HR-sponsored silliness about performance ratings/objectives subsequently tied to comp and promotions is the reason I've turned down half a dozen offers back in the corporate world. For years I sat on both sides of the table in these types of meetings and I just can't do it anymore. I doff my chapeau to those who still have the strength to soldier on. <golf clap>
