Dear Ravi,
An employee has been availed of casual leave and short leave which are to be used for these puposes. It is up to the employee how they use upto the optimum. Every human being has his/her social life which cannot be neglected but at the same time one should priortize his need and responsibilities respectively. I 100% agree that one cannot work for 10 hrs continously, relaxation is must, so this time can be utilized for personal and social activities. and as far the employer is concerned, i do not think that any restrictions are there, you are allowed on timely basis (as long as you do not misuse it).
So Ravi, doing personal work during official hours should not be a problem as far as you make the right use of it...

Mr. Ravi,

I just wanted to know that where are you working, Its not possible in MNC's culture. We have a office boy / rider for such type of needs, if your presence is required there then you have to take short leave for that. (Max. upto two time / month & each short leave consist of 2 hours). Also it’s depending upon employer / Organisation to how much they provide privilege to the employees to finish personal work in office hours.

And one more thing i like to mention that you have quoted a word "typical HR mindset", kindly remember depending upon organizational needs and as well as employees requirement HR is there to take care.

Hope you will never mind my words but its true to accept what r you doing is definitely misguide / encourage others to do so.

With Regards

Vow what a debate :)…these kind of topic should be discuss here but in a good spirit…a big NO to irritation /frustration/anger kind of stuff…Ravi..i realy appreciate that you are thinking about other people who can’t find time for their personal work out of their busy schedules, instead of enjoying what you got……I feel that HR personnel should be smart enough to manage these kind of situation….somewhere I feel HR should be flexible enough on this issue…Organisation should be employee friendly so that employees also feel good and try to put their 100% to the work assigned to them …As per my opinion, a satisfied employee is more productive then frustrated employee. On the other hand HR should keep watch on those employees who are trying to take advantage without any genuine reason… HR ppl should beware of some CLEVER employees who are always trying different2 tricks to escape from the work…thanks
