    Advice to Management

    At times you need to understand that there is a human performing a task/work for other human to deliver things in the best possible manner. Pay attention to his basic needs when he requires them the most and he may never complain if 20 other piles of work is ready for him. Ignore his basic requirements and he may withdraw himself out of the process.
