Be A Clock Watcher

Updated: Feb 19, 2022



plural noun: clock-watchers; plural noun: clock watchers

an employee who is overly strict or zealous about not working more than the required hours.


Have you ever heard a manager or a CEO use this term in a derogatory manner about their employees?

I have and it always surprises me.

Many professions bill for time and hold strict to billing minutes, for instance, design, lawyers, etc.

It is an issue of value and time. The manager and CEO value their time and charge accordingly. Companies care about the hours you put in. They employ spyware on computers and clock in and clock out technology to ensure they are getting their dollar’s worth.

Chiding employees for being clock watchers is disrespectful and an abuse of power. It is indicative of narcissistic entitlement and is reminiscent of the days of serfs and Lords.

The time of employees is of equal value to the C-Suite. Employees don’t owe employers free labour. That attitude needs to be laid to rest.

I encourage you to be a clock watcher. You're worth it!

YOUR time is valuable and deserves to be remunerated.

There are so many esoteric lessons to unpack here. One main one is, employees that have to put in the extra unpaid hours because they need to keep the job can be translated into several issues:

-> creates a sense of helplessness

-> fosters anger and resentment

-> is a form of theft

-> is unconsensual

The perfect Law of Karma will bring the corresponding experiences in whatever form they need to be to best teach the lesson to the creator of such issues.

Wisdom from Gary Vaynerchuk { @GaryVee }:

If you’re an employee in a company where the overall culture is toxic, then the best option is to leave.
There’s sadly not much you can do to change the culture of an organization when you’re an employee. Culture is something that’s dictated from the top down.
If the CEO and upper management aren’t building the right culture, there’s unfortunately not much you can change.
