A local employer issued the following request, in writing, to its staff:
[complete a dependants form] to support high organizational performance by nurturing a conducive working environment, we are updating the contact details of all employees and their dependents (sic) … to enable us to reach our colleagues at any time, as [they are] needed.
Of course, the last paragraph was the clincher (remembering that the employer is supporting a “high organizational performance by nurturing a conducive working environment”):
Note: You must use the … form to update your contact and dependents’ details. Failing to do so will subject you to disciplinary action.
Yes folks, the beatings will stop when morale improves. 😕
