This week on the Ask a Manager podcast, I talked to a guest who has too much downtime at work. Here’s the letter:
I have never had a job without significant downtime. I make myself available for new assignments and readily volunteer to take on work from stressed colleagues. The problem is that there’s just not more work to do. I work for a local government. My workload is dependent on things outside of my control. Projects have a clear beginning and end. Once they’re done, they’re done.
