I thought I’d get Yannick involved on a What Would You Do Wednesday. I mean he’s on hiatus, it’s still a quiet time of year, no auditions yet post holidays, plus it gives me an opportunity to post something from a male perspective, so why not pick his brain. So today, I brought him up to speed as to just what my Wednesday posts are all about, since I know he doesn’t read my blog, insert eye roll here, ask me if I’ll ever watch another thing that he does. Once I got him up to speed on the premise I then asked him, if he there was a situation he wouldn’t like to find himself in, what would it be. He came up with this WWYDW.
You have definitive proof that a co-worker is stealing from the company you work for. What do you do?
a) since you’re on friendly terms with the co-worker confront them, have a conversation, and suggest that they “do the right thing” which is to confess to a superior so that nobody else will take the fall for the thefts. Give them a deadline to do this, and if they don’t do it by the date you then carry on to…
b) go to the superior directly and let them know what you’ve uncovered.
c) since what they’re doing is illegal, you go outside the company and let the proper authorities know about the theft.
d) do nothing, let the universe, karma, what have you, get to them in their own good time.
Now, we wait. Wait to hear what you all would do if you found yourself in the position of knowing that somebody you work with is stealing from your employee. Yannick and I look forward to hearing your thoughts, and finding out how you would handle this.
And, oh, because some people cannot seem to separate me from YB, or me from Murdoch, I must add this DISCLAIMER: THIS IS NOT BASED ON ANYTHING HAPPENING ON MURDOCH, NOBODY IS STEALING, NOR HAVE THEY EVER STOLEN FROM MM. THIS IS STRICTLY FROM YANNICK’S IMAGINATION.
