Fellow employers, how do you define a successful employee? One who reaches KPI every month? Or those who never disobeyed you and always say yes?

Malaysian businessman Aliff Syukri thinks if you’re ALWAYS available to be reached via phone calls or text messages, that defines your success. In his viral TikTok post @papalarisofficial, Aliff highlighted that staff shouldn’t be calculative about the time when the boss contacts them – be it at work, or outside of working hours.

That itself, according to Alif, will be considered as a hardworking employee.

“You need to pick up the calls even if your boss is calling on weekends. A boss appreciates those who are not calculative about the working time.”

What if the occasion renders you unable to pick up the phone? Aliff said you should inform and don’t go all silent.

“Tell your boss, you were in the shower, you were taking a dump. Just don’t be quiet.”

Aliff said as a boss, he can often see an employee’s dedication and efforts through the phone calls, which is also a form of respect to the employers.

“Don’t be quiet all the time if you expect to be the boss to your workers. How is your boss going to promote your or increase your salary if they don’t see your dedication?”

Aliff then once again highlighted that it’s important for an employee to answer the phone calls regardless of the time of the day – day, evening, or night.

“If you didn’t manage to answer, reply and explain why.”


Untuk boleh berjaya korang mestilah kerja tak berkira, yang paling penting kalau boss telefon di angkat jangan senyap…

What do you think of Aliff’s take on this? A common sense, or a red flag?
