A comfortable business environment is where everyone gets along. Where they can work together, help each other.
The paranoid manager or owner who is afraid that the staff will gang up on them or cover up for each other, creates an uncomfortable environment where employees ‘sneak’ around and take every possible break.
Sometimes, they meet after work and share grudges.
“She saw me talking to David and made it look like we were having an affair, and I felt like shouting at her…”
“Well, I saw her peeping at me from behind that stand and I was so annoyed….”
These are employees who will see thefts and turn their back, view inspectors and make sure they see what they aren’t ‘supposed to’.
