YOU RUN a company. One employee shows up for work every day, arriving early, staying late, in the office on weekends, immersed in the job. A second toddles in mid-day at the beginning of the week and bolts out the door as soon as possible on Thursday, “working” from home on Fridays. Odds are you’re happier with the first hire than the second.
Unless we’re talking about the US Congress, where, apparently, such dedication is a fault, not a virtue.
