Then if lighting is not important, why must management of Coles spend money installing and maintaining lighting and paying for tons of electricity bill that hurts the environment; no... its their profits?
I wonder if hurt ego would prevent fridge light from getting fixed or delayed with reference to my previous similar blog post at Woolworths supermarkets here:
you well. Please see enclosed photos and my feedback below:
an actual accident that result in injury or death of a child with his head
trapped in between the ceiling and escalator in Singapore due to poor escalator
safety device design (see photo). I don’t want this to happen to any child in
Australia even though I am not an Australian citizen.
that the safety device in MYER, Bourke Street, Melbourne, VIC, Australia was
vandalised and damaged. This is a recurring problem for MYER as it appears that
their safety device could be snapped off easily.
help to advise MYER to repair said devices on all escalators at all outlets
throughout Australia and/or all other countries.
be wonderful if you could help share your expertise on the installation of a
safety device that could not be vandalised and snapped off easily.
kindly investigate on this matter and share this feedback with your circle of
Do u agree that one of the reason why CEOs are paid so handsomely was his/her ability to perform complicated work and to deliver high workload by working long hours. This is the type of traditional thinking that most people grew up with. With this thinking ingrained in our minds, why would we participate in process improvement sessions that simplify and reduce our workload which allow us to finish our work on time (being frowned upon) or even be replaced by "cheaper workers" who could perform the simpler work process that the predecessor created?
Finishing work on time is frowned upon by management in many countries. This mentality was passed by management techniques since the Industrial age where menial work are rewarded for long hours of physical labour. With this concept in mind and understanding that we had entered the knowledge economy, long hours at work does not automatically create quality productive work. People may also create more work to justify the long hours where more work created would fill the length of their performance review for a bigger bonus irregardless whether the work created would actually help in the company's growth. Does the company pay people to be physically present or to buy actual work produced by staff? People may also think with more free time through simpler processes, people would get more work created to fill up the free time which create resistance to participate in process improvement sessions.
In university, i delivered my assignment ahead of the deadline and got a fail. The thinking of the average joe is that delivering work at the last minute symbolise great effort had went into the work and is more forgivable by the assessor should the work is of lower quality or with mistakes. In project management, the same amount of time and effort to perform a task is the same irregardless if u complete the task a week before the deadline or a minute before the deadline. If the time and effort is the same, why not perform the task early, by sacrificing weekends and weeknights to open up leeway (time) to double check and triple check the completed work and more importantly to cater for unexpected circumstances that may occur which would prove disastrous if you start work on the task at the last minute.
Learning from "diversification" concept used in investments, one must not simply build professional relationships but also on family ties and personal friendships. If one falls sick and need $500,000 for surgery to live; Ask yourself if your boss or colleagues would pay for your surgery? I know that there are good souls out there, but the cold truth is that one's surgery bills would likely to be paid for by one's family that one spent so little time in building a strong foundational relationships with.
I would love to hear opinions disproving this article if management was the employee and if employee was the management.
