|The Big Lie That Nigerian Workforce Is Lying Right Now by SPius: 9:10pm On Mar 26|
It's easier said than done. Work from home.
Truth is that most Nigerians are not doing a shred of work at home.
Maybe they have sent one or a few emails. Called someone they were asked to call, but overall, we have not been groomed to manage ourselves.
How do you expect a nation that the biggest complaint among employers is that their staff lack initiative to work from home?
Self -discipline, self-management, and productivity are not something that Nigerians can easily boast about. To get all these qualities in someone, then take the 1% of the 1%.
How do you pull away from the TV screen or the game console or Instagram and actually get some work done when your boss is not breathing down your back?
How many Nigerian workers use Trello? Microsoft to-do or even Google Calendar?
How many even have a simple TTD list penned down somewhere. When the waiter at a 5-star restaurant cannot take your orders with pen and paper so that they will not bring you the wrong item? When Buhari's cabinet sat opposite Angela Merkel's with not a shred of paper between them?
This Covid crap gives us the genuine opportunity to re-evaluate our work culture and re-write the way we approach productivity. This is no time for accolades or standing ovations for doing nothing. Famous for being famous. Tons of awards without employing others.
This is time to roll-up our sleeves and think about what we actually produce as a nation. https://www.doingbusinessafrica.com/post/keep-em-happy
