Quote from: lucgeo on 12-06-22, 08:56PMNo a " let's talk" is ahead on the game in the fact that it is classed as an informative meeting, therefore a colleague and manager can discuss the problem, and iron out any creases.A lot of the time it boils down to miscommunication between colleagues,six of one, or just tit for tat!! A nip in the bud can save loads of wasted time and unnecessary negativity! I had one good personnel manager, who used to work with me...as he said, sometimes his whole day could be spent with just a " he said, she said" petty waste of time! Another was a sausage incident...where a staff restaurant colleague,who'd not received any cover all day for a break, was seen by super sleuth bum licker manager eating a sausage!! It was a Saturday, busiest trading day, and they spent 4 hours on a disciplinary meeting with manager, me, manager note taker, and a senior manager regarding the suspected non payment, and consuming on duty, of a 20p sausage Personnel manager came on duty, read them all the riot act...sent the staff restaurant colleague home early fully paid, and had super sleuth manager put in the staff restaurant to serve for the rest of the day!!
Quote from: General Thorn on 13-06-22, 12:10PMlucgeo your comment just reminds me of how Tesco policies and managers are so wrong with what the real priorities are.In my eyes, the fact that the colleague had not had a break was the most important issue here but of course managers, who in my experience think they are all Inspector Morses, turn everything around to blame the colleague.Also to prioritise taking that amount of people off the shop floor on a busy day for a sausage is ridiculous! Unfortunately I've witnessed the same kind of thing, a much respected colleague picked up one cola bottle (pick n mix) which had fallen to the side and should have been wasted. They had not been for a break in a long time and ate said sweet. A full disciplinary went ahead on a Saturday with a senior manager from another store also present and the colleague narrowly managed to keep their job.Surely a let's talk would have sufficed, I would say this was bullying from management, making mountains out of molehills is an old saying that fits this perfectly.
