Voices at the Table II
I want to give an example of voices gone bad.
I know a company who hired in a messy way. I helped them sort out their team, but saw their handbook changes and could only privately cringe.
Unfortunately, the lawyers and finance people were the only voices. So the handbook read like a dictionary and perfectly protected the company in legal risk. Workers who glanced at or by chance read it would lose motivation to work for the company. Operations, HR and marketing voices have no proper place in the document. The handbook should be legally useful, encouraging, uplifting and even fun in every way. Sadly, they are protecting themselves while losing a good chance to bring some passion to a company with too much finance influence.
Anyone with other stories?
