What you tell those of us who feel anguish over his breach of trust?
(PRWEB) November 10, 2015
Lynne Curry, Ph.D., SPHR (CEO of The Growth Company, Inc. and author of Solutions and Beating the Workplace Bully) has over 30 years of experience in management consulting and frequently receives questions from clients regarding situations in the workplace. Today, Dr. Curry discusses a question about moving beyond an employer's betrayal:
"I was laid off last week, as were two-thirds of those who worked for my former employer. These layoffs happened without notice. We all received pink slips midday Friday and were told we were paid until the end of the day. Big whoop. I worked for this man for three years. I gave him and his practice 110 percent and he told me he considered me his “right hand.” Despite this, I couldn’t convince him to address things that needed to change. When I told him my concerns, he assured me he wanted to do the “right thing” and would “get around” to making improvements. I believed him but he never did. The problems stacked up and led to the downfall of his business. On the one hand, he got what he deserved. On the other hand, what happened to his business, into which I poured my time and effort, broke my heart and has left lasting scars on many of my former co-workers. As the former office manager, I feel partially responsible to my fellow employees; however, I wasn’t given any more notice than the others. This angers me, as it has since become clear to me that this is the reason he began having confidential meetings with our company attorney and CPA more than a month ago. What can you tell the four of us, his former core staff, who feel anguish over his breach of trust in laying us off without notice? How do we deal with this and move on?"
