How ‘Lazy Management’ And ‘Fake Work’ Are Strangling The Tech Industry

The phenomenon of "fake work" is steadily gaining attention in major tech corporations, and it's raising considerable concerns regarding company culture and efficiency. Fake work refers to the tasks that often carry no discernible impact on a company's broader objectives. It includes actions such as creating unnecessary reports, having unproductive meetings, and performing tasks that only exist to justify an employee's role or to embellish a manager's portfolio.

We hear from Derek Toh of Hiredly, the leading hybrid recruitment platform for junior to mid-management talent to shed some light on the topic.
