No work life balance and equality at a hospital
My spouse works as an admin in *hospital name redacted*. Their workload keeps increasing, due to people leaving and the HR saying no headcount to replace those who have left.
So far about 3 people have left but only 1 part-timer was hired. So the workload keeps being distributed to the remaining staffs, adding on to their work.
The off work timing is 545pm (Mon to Thu) and 515pm (Fri), but the management likes to hold meetings or discussions at 5pm or even 530pm, and normally this things will take more than 1 hour to end.
Even if you are on leave, you are expected to the meetings via zoom. If not, you will be ‘targeted’ by the higher-ups.
For those who are taking the charted bus when going home, they are allowed to go off at about 15min earlier, but those who do not are not allowed to leave earlier.
And the salary is also biased towards guys of the same rank/position, as their salary tend be higher of about few hundred to close to a thousand more.
- Change job lor.. This is Singapore leh.. Hard to find a job with work life balance..
- Can ask your spouse to change jobs? Perhaps somewhere closer to home? As for salary.. you can try to research for the reasons why guys are paid slightly more.
- I think your partner does not speak out for herself/himself and does not understand how their HR works. Everywhere is high turnover rate, not just *name redacted*, if the company is not good for your, go to the next one, if the department is not good for you, go to the next one. Perhaps your spouse is too comfort in her/his own zone so when company cut cost and do budgeting and work loads get tougher you say *name redacted* is not good..
