An investigation was launched at a large metal commodities company: a young man, who was promoted to ‘team leader’, did not arrive on the next day transformed into a suit wearing, KPI demanding psychopathic police enforcer, as was normally the case.
By 1100 in the morning the global supply of metal commodities had ground to a halt!
Employee Nigel Smith said: “Honestly I have never seen anything like it. We expect the highest standards of conformance from our managers. I felt very uncomfortable not being told what to do, and not being faced with a dull grey robot of a man”.
The young manager was immediately sent home while things were investigated by the internal ‘Ethics & Compliance Judgement Squad’. Their report uncovered the fact that there was actually no written rule about dress code.
The board has now enforced a strict dress code and written a 200 page policy document defining ‘culture’ as a set of expected behaviours and the grave consequences of deviation.
The man has since left the company and has launched a disruptive challenger to her former employer.
