Businesswoman branded ‘offensive’ to employees setting ‘bad example’ by working from home

A businesswoman who said working from home is a ‘bad example’ for children has been labeled ‘offensive and old-fashioned’.

Tina Knight, from Essex, said parents who continue to work remotely could be harmful to the future generation of workers, calling the public’s “sense of entitlement” “incredible”.

Today she appeared on Good Morning Britain and compared the working-from-home mentality passed on to parents’ children to those who claim unemployment benefits.

After starting her own electronics company, Miss Knight received the 1988 Women in Business Award from Margaret Thatcher, and now sits on the boards of directors of companies in both the private and public sectors.

Geeta Sidhu-Robb, owner of the company Nosh Detox, criticized her argument, emphasizing that her approach is “another stick to beat women with,” saying that workers at home are often more productive.

“The problem is people don’t want to hear the truth, everything has to be sugared,” Tina said from her home in Essex. “I don’t think it’s the next generation, it’s here with us now.

“If you asked someone what they would like to do, everyone would want to work from home. Do an hour in the morning, a nice long lunch hour and an hour in the afternoon. But we are dealing with reality.

‘Business is making money, which makes profit that the government takes, which makes the wheels turn. Profit seems like a dirty word, but for profit you have to have productivity.’

She argued that in the first few months of the pandemic, the British took on a “euphoric Dunkirk spirit” and productivity rose, but says the long-term effects could be more damaging.

Tina says the long-term effects of working from home could be more damaging than returning to the office, but Geeta was quick to criticize her argument, pointing out that she successfully raised three children while running a thriving business from home.

“You notice that the mental problem becomes more pronounced because people like the camaraderie of work,” she said.

“The hustle and bustle of work, the brainstorming, the general stuff that gives extra output, and companies find that missing now and a big part of the reason companies bow to the pressure is the shortage of staff in certain industries, they’re being blackmailed into it.” .’

Geeta, from London, was quick to criticize her argument, pointing out that she successfully raised three children while running a thriving business from home.

‘To me that’s not just old-fashioned, I think old-fashioned is a very polite way of saying it. I think it’s quite an offensive approach,” she said. “It’s another stick to beat women with when they’re really just trying to do the best they’re trying to do.

“I’ve been working from home for 18 years because my oldest son was very sick and I had to earn the money to pay the bills and take care of my kids, there was no way to do it, it’s incredibly insulting to say I one hour of work a day.

Tina argued that as president of Women into Business, she is in favor of women choosing to work from home and start a business remotely after having children, adding that they are “often very successful.”

“I have privately schooled three children, built a business and employ people. I get dressed in the morning and I come down, treat it like an office, work down here and work eight to ten hours if my business needs it.

“Everyone who is very rich is doing well, but we have had such a hard time for everyone. We do our very best and things like this try to make you feel bad.’

Tina argued that as president of Women into Business, she champions women choosing to work from home and start a business remotely after having children, adding that they are “often very successful.”

“But as their business grows and they become more successful and they hire people and the reality changes, their attitudes change,” she said. “It’s all very well to say you have expenses, it’s what’s called life, but you have to keep the wheels turning.

She went on to argue that many people will work more hours at home than in the office, adding that parents' attitudes towards work are often passed on to their children.

“If people want to own their own business and work from home, that’s fine, but if you have a bigger business and you personally depend on raising enough money to pay the wages, you have to compete with other countries out there. You have to look at it from a different perspective.

“It’s offensive not to tell the truth, it can be offensive, but it’s certainly not offensive.”

She went on to argue that many people will work longer hours at home than in the office, adding that parents’ attitudes to work are often passed on to their children.

“It sets a bad example,” she said. “I read very quickly what a gentleman said this morning and he used the example of unemployment benefits and how that has now set bad examples. You now have three generations of families that never went to work because it’s a mindset.

‘I see it, he sees it as it is. People’s sense of entitlement today is absolutely incredible. In my day it was a day’s work for a day’s wages. I don’t see what’s wrong with that.’
