From the Director of Operations
Good morning team
I trust that you are all well and managing to stay productive. Thank-you for your continued efforts as we move ever closer to our year-end targets. At our current rate of production we could very well exceed the goal by end of the third quarter! Nicely done, people.
Unfortunately, this memo does not bring pleasing news. I must again discuss the state of the third floor women’s washroom. Last Thursday I received formal written complaints from both Scrub It! (our cleaning contractors) and the building owners. I am disgusted and quite ashamed. This is the third time in the last two quarters that fecal matter has been strewn about the floor, paper towels moistened and scattered, and urine found on the carpet just outside the door. This affront to our senses and the safe workplace will not continue. We are now taking formal action. Head Office has asked me to work closely with Human Resources to conduct an investigation and deliver a series of seminars on public hygiene. Please consider these seminars mandatory for all employees.
As renters and as employees, our behaviours and manners should be representative of the Company. That is how we are judged. At all times you must think of our Brand. Maintaining a professional demeanor is an expectation of employment. You are required to conduct yourselves in a manner conducive to our public face. As you recall there were former employees wearing our Brand found drinking alcohol in a local bar. This is unacceptable. Further, should you break wind while wearing company trousers and shirt; you are responsible for the impression that creates for us within the community. Similarly, behaviours in washrooms should meet our standards of professionalism. In no way do we want any bodily functions associated with our Brand. Please use discretion while wearing Company clothing.
Lastly, I want to discuss social media. Many of our employees have indicated on their FB pages that they work here; anything they post is essentially a reflection of our Brand. Essentially, those employee FB pages are the property of the company. They no longer belong to you. The Marketing Department reads all postings and those identified employees have been reprimanded. As an an employee, you willingly give up your individual expression for the greater corporate culture and financial goals of our Brand. Unfortunately, these incidents have led to more conscientious corporate policing. At any time, should you be made aware of activities or behaviours you consider inappropriate, and not reflective of our Corporate Values, please contact your managing supervisor.
I apologize for the directness of this memo and understand that there are innocent people amongst you. However, these episodes should serve as a lesson and give us a chance to consider our Corporate Values.
Going forward please keep the Brand in mind and have a great weekend!
