(This graphic has little to do with my post but is as tasteless as anything I could find.) Imagine the Human Resources Manager of Cameron McKenna (London-based global firm) revealing this publicly about a member of its staff (albeit internally and only to trainees). To be clear, the email included the employee’s real name.
Recently, we have experienced a drop in her performance and whilst support and coaching has been given, [she] decided to resign yesterday.
FASTFORWARD: Is it just me or should a HR professional know better. If that is true, perhaps retaining an outplacement consultant would be the firm’s best next move. What action would you take against that HR Manager? This may not be quite as bad as my earlier post It’s their funeral… which garnered several reader comments but it is still disgusting.
