VIDEO: Employee requests to work from home during entire winter

There is no doubt that winter is a cold and dark time.

It's hard to get out of your warm, cosy bed and head to work.

But you've got to do what you've got to do.

When people don't want to go to work they might make an excuse or call in sick.

One woman took a real shot at trying to convince her human resources (HR) department that she should work from home.

And she tried to use winter as an excuse.

A video posted on TikTok featured an email that was sent to a Johannesburg HR professional, Onkgopotse Legobye.

In the email, the employee requested to work from home from June to August because of the cold temperatures as of late.

Read the full email here:

@activehrplate Lol tell me HR professionals are always being tested without telling me. Theres part 1-5 and hope you look out for the other parts… #hr #hrm #humanresources #humanresourceshumor #humanresourceslife #hrmanager #management #companyculture ♬ take a moment to breathe. - normal the kid

Legobye was shocked and surprised by the nature of the request.

She obviously denied it, but this employee was not giving up without a fight.

After sending them a response in which she denied the request, the employee sent through another option which involved everyone coming in to work at a later hour:

@activehrplate Part 3 is here: Who doesnt love an employee that does not back down… #hr #hrm#humanresources #humanresourceshumor ♬ original sound - 🥀

Naturally, this suggestion was also denied.
