Boss Yells At Employee For Being Late Without Even Asking For A Reason, Ends Up Losing A Loyal Employee Due To His Poor Leadership

Loyal employees are crazy valuable to companies. These people are usually focused on the success of the company and are willing to go the extra mile to help it get places. They sacrifice their own time and interests to put more energy into the corporation, and it’s common to see these dedicated employees carrying out such selfless acts on a daily basis. They want the company to grow and prosper beyond setbacks and competitors, and are one of the cornerstones of strong enterprises. And one boss just lost such a trooper thanks to their own narrow-minded decision.

Shaneé Moret recently turned to LinkedIn to share a story about the time her friend’s superior humiliated him in front of the entire office for being a few minutes late. The boss ticked all the boxes they shouldn’t have in such a situation and has gone viral for all the wrong reasons. This example is the perfect reminder of why companies need leaders who can value their staff and, hopefully, it’ll get the attention it needs.

And it wasn’t like the boss was constantly being a jerk or anything. The employee completely lost his faith in the company after this one incident, proving how important it really is for leaders to constantly bring their A-game when it comes to managing their teams.

“My friend’s opinion of his boss was good until that point,” Moret, the CEO of MedSnake Media, told Bored Panda.

She also offered her own take on the situation, highlighting how the boss could’ve handled it. “They should have asked why he was late before threatening him. We are all human and as leaders, we need to be empathetic to our team. You never know what someone may be going through,” Moret explained.

Luckily, Moret said her friend is doing well as he has already found a new job.

Here’s what people said after reading Moret’s story

I never work (unpaid) overtime or take work home. Companies aren't loyal to their employees, why should I be to them? You're always just a number. If they can get the work done with one less number, you're out, no matter how hard you've worked and how much you did extra. Do your job, do it well and efficiently, but never do more then what you're paid for.

I can't get over how in the US it's expected that people will work overtime freely. We have a new colleague who moved from the States to Europe and she was telling us how in almost every job she worked people were expected to arrive early, stay late, take work home, etc, to show they took their job seriously. Expecting people to give up their precious free time to prove "loyalty" that they will not be shown back is just crazy.

In the profession I was in, there was a huge turn around of staff (30%+) every year due to issues unresolved by management that made doing the job untenable... I left teaching in 2009: it was the best decision I made for my mental health and well-being. I work at something completely different now- it pays 10%-20% less but also gives me 90% less stress and has improved my quality of life immensely. I also feel appreciated more by the customers I help out of a fix...

Employee sells time to employer. The most precious thing in life. Yet some employers think on top of that they can behave how ever. Employers get the profit. Employees get drinking problem. Stone aged idiots.
