Question: I work in a big company where employees are given a lot of autonomy. Micromanaging is frowned upon and, after lockdown, we were given a choice to work from home or come back to the office. Everyone works hard, but one of my colleagues just isn’t pulling his weight.

He joined the company 18 months ago and behaves as if it’s a part-time rather than full-time job. He postpones Zoom calls, files reports late and finishes early almost every day to collect his children from school.
