Recently, the topic of "996" in China has been heated up by many people, and a lot of comments have been triggered, which has aroused the resonance of many netizens. What does this "996" system mean?
The so-called "996" system refers to the length of work, which refers to work at 9:00 in the morning, work at 9:00 in the evening, work 12 hours a day, and work six days a week. In fact, this work system is illegal and has violated the legitimate rights and interests of employees. According to the labor law, employees can work for no more than 44 hours per week. However, if you follow the "996" system, then the working hours have reached 72 hours. As the founder of the famous technology company Alibaba, Jack Ma, he has also something to say about "996".
"Any company should not, and can not force employees 996", which is Jack Ma said in Weibo. Jack Ma’s implication is that 996 can’t be a working system of the company, but should be the employee’s self-requirement. As a company, it does not defend 996, but must pay tribute to the employees of the 996 system.
In fact, many people in the 996 system are very disgusted, and the 996 system is still illegal. From the perspective of the effect of implementation, it is not good. If the employee has already completed his or her work, and asks the employee to work overtime, even if he is sitting and not giving away, this is obviously unpopular. In the company's operations, it is most important to encourage and promote self-development and promotion. Technology-based companies are not the kind of labor-intensive companies, but they still need to work. Technology R&D is a long-term process. It only accumulates over the years, and it takes time and effort to get high returns.
The above-mentioned spirit of advocating employee development is to let employees demand faster and better completion of their work. In fact, this is very beneficial for the employees themselves. After all, the competition inside and outside the enterprise is very strong. If the employees can't keep up with the rhythm, then the elimination is the final result. Therefore, those who are willing to work overtime can be said to be very self-disciplined. And doing more of yourself will also bring you more opportunities for salary increases and promotion.
But if everyone is working so hard, then there will be another situation, that is, the boss profit himself at the expense of employees . After all, the competition seems to be a ranking. Everyone works hard. In theory, everyone’s ranking may not be big changes. Because everyone is very active, some bosses may give out some bonuses to employees and achieve a win-win situation for the team.
But now more business owners don't really want to do this, and employees pay so much, just to keep their jobs. In China's first-tier cities, competition is fierce, so many people choose to work harder. Jack said that he also came from the 996 work system. He believes that this is a personal request for himself and has nothing to do with the work system.
Some units now force employees to work overtime and treat employees with rude attitudes. It is generally not recommended to stay in such companies for a long time. However, some companies do not mandate overtime work and do not give extra rewards, just to be able to survive in the unit. In this case, you can consider it according to your own situation. Some good companies encourage employees and give employees overtime to give back.
The 996 system is definitely a very bad work system, which reflects the exploitation of employees by enterprises. Enterprises should pay more attention to the demands of employees. What do you want to say about the 996 work system?
