What is 'hours over standard' and does it matter? Does excess travel time count for it?

All metrics matter in some way

I believe everything flows into hours over standard, though your request seems oddly specific. Why not ask if G&A or available time flows into it? As for, "does it matter," that all depends on if you are any good at your job and if anyone important knows about it. Very rarely is a metric going to get you recognition you couldn't more easily and impactfully earn by networking and impressing the right people.

Probably want to know to determine if it's worth putting in TE. Yes all metrics matter and it's worth logging.l and it counts towards hours over standard which I have seen as a differentiator

Husband told me the other week he had the first business trip scheduled that he would fly to. I don’t understand why that can’t be done virtually, given the last 1.5 years, but he seems to be set on the fact that he’s “expected” to travel for work and is booking the tickets. We both are vaccinated but have two very young children who aren’t. It’s not even Covid that’s at the top of my mind but rather the pointlessness of resuming business travel. Am I overreacting?
