Why is all this lethargy prevalent?
Because the workforce is worn out, knackered, had enough of the constant nonsense that these (so called) leaders come out with. Not to mention the constant threat of redundancy. And while the likes of John McKee keep spouting nonsense like this, it isn't going to change for the better.
I'm afraid the USA has a lot of responsibility in this respect. Your work ethic of always being available on the end of a mobile, goodness knows how many hours of the day, has spread across the pond, and I for one don't like it and opted out. I now choose when I want to work.
People are human. They only have so much to give and it's gone beyond what is reasonable. The vast majority of leaders have no concept of this. Their idea of management is, if they don't do it, get a bigger stick and hit them harder.
Everyone needs free time and a rest. And they need to be able to afford that free time.
You'd better get used to it, because everything turns a full circle and I predict you'll see the end of all this, sooner rather than later.
People are rebelling and that's what you're seeing. They don't take up arms, it far more subtle. Do as little as possible for example
Of course they're fed up; what do you expect?.
The sooner people get back to regular hours, decent breaks and a fair days work for a fair days pay, the better. Stuff 24 hour opening. We all managed perfectly well before all that nonsense arrived on the scene. That was motivated by company greed.
People will be far happier and the spark that you complain is so lacking, may just return.
Tell that to your pathetic leaders!
