My employer likes to make a big thing of its respect for employees and care for their welfare.
I won’t bore you with details but an incident occurred yesterday which showed complete lack of respect for an employee.
I was never sure whether senior management really did believe in respect and welfare but there was a disconnect further down the organisation or it was a sham. I naively used to think the former but now I’m not so sure.
This goes to a theme that has underpinned a number of my posts. Too many, be them employers or politicians, get away with just words but do not back them up with tangible actions.
I think we all need to be more cynical when these parties say words and challenge them to demonstrate tangible actions.
Words without action have limited or no value.
