Is it wrong to block non manager staffs work calls outside of hours?
We get given phones at our work which we can either sign to say they will be work only or you will be using them for personal calls as well which we pay for.
I have chosen the second option to allow me to us it as a personal phone also.
Every so often (happening more often these days) I get calls way out side of working hours, 2 1/2 hours outside sometimes from staff. If I choose not to answer they just keep trying until I get so annoyed I answer. I've had to disable voicemail because of this as the OCD bit in me can't have a 1 next to the phone symbol and if I do listen I then can't stop thinking about the issue until the morning ruining my evening (hate to admit but this isn't a exaggeration either)
I don't mind answering calls from my manager and his manager as I know they will be urgent if they ever call but calls from staff are always things that can wait or should be put on the fault database.
I have just downloaded a blacklisting app for my phone that I can choose what contact groups I want to receive calls from and when.
To me this seems acceptable as after my hours finish it is for personal calls.
Does this sound ok to everyone else?
Who wouldn't you block?
