'conveying' = 'conferring'
Vodafone India employees could find themselves kicked out of the company if they break a tough new set of safety laws, with specially-designated members of staff granted police-like powers to check compliance. The firm’s global health and safety goal is to “drive a zero fatalities culture, mindset and behaviour”. Although …
I'm pretty clear how I feel about it.
Vodafone spying on their staff during working hours in distasteful. Doing so outside of working hours is unacceptable.
If vodafone had a way of detecting whether or not employees were using phones while driving, other than by spying on them, and sanctioning them based on that, then I'd commend them. Anything that violates the employees right to privacy, without probable cause, is unacceptable.
The only danger vodafone employees are likely to potentially suffer is DVT from sitting on their butts all day doing sod all. The only way you can get to talk to a real person is to move your number to another provider. Then they'll call you at all hours until they get the message that YOU are not going to talk to them about their sudden concern over their service.
In India, two oximorons if I ever heard any.
Cudos for trying, but I think this is too far engrained in the culture to see any drastic changes - even within a single company. They're going to lose the bulk of their employee base, and most of India before they get the very few who actually care about safety, or in some cases, merely common sense.
I'm sure they'll get there <u>eventually</u>, just not under the timeframe or terms that Vodafone is expecting.
Vodafone's culture seems rotten - doesn't take long at the headquarters in Newbury to discover this!
There seems a complete lack of regard for employees. The idea of a "hot-desking" culture with mandatory clear tables seems to treat employees like animals in a zoo. Information seems hidden and not shared. It's just seemingly bleh - so many people start working at Vodafone only to seem to turn around and run as fast as they can as far as they can away.
is evidence required? or does it happen because one of the super snitches says they saw it? if that's the case given politics in call centres (used to work in one) and the cliques that form i can see some spite happening
either way i'd not like to be one of them snitches. anyone's fired and the list of people present will be used to narrow it all down
On the one hand, it is 100% none of Vodafone's business what people are doing off working hours. If they want to control their employee's 24/7, they can pay them for 168 hours a week.
On the other hand -- DON'T USE YOUR PHONE WHILE DRIVING! It's seriously stupid.
Seatbelt? It's stupid not to wear it but it doesn't affect anybody else. Speeding? From what I've seen of India traffic speeding is generally not possible. I would not be happy with my employer worrying about me speeding off-hours here in the states because many many roads have arbitrarily slow speed limits and arbitrarily bored cops (on the other hand, I have a radar detector so I don't get speeding tickets.)
