The employees who work in a land where no birds would come to roost and who have to forage for lunch food will soon have another benefit removed from them.
Sad, but the ugly act will have to be done by my department.
As it is, there is zero benefit. I managed to get coffee, tea and beverages for the employees but now the big ticket items of medical and health care items will be deleted.
Scorpion King and Pig Head Without Tail feels that this is a cost and such costs must not be borne by employers. Hmm…this is the same Scorpion King who has a sibling who suffered from cancer last year and now that this sibling is deemed in the “safe” zone, it is off with the benefits! Is any cancer survivor ever in the safe zone but heck, they are wealthy enough to survive the cost if cancer returns I guess.
Cancer patients lose their hair during chemotherapy. But guess what? Sibling of Scorpion King is so rich that she could afford the latest cocktail of chemo drugs such that she kept her crowning glory. She had the gall to approach us underlings to Shave our Crowning Glory for the Shave For Hope program.
Many retorted her to shave hers first! Hoots of laughter as she has kept her cancer status as if like a State Secret that not even KGB or CIA can torture it out of her.
The 11th hour has come and no news from the Scorpion King to declare the royal Scorpion edict to renew policies. His mentality has been, if employees do not like it, they can leave. Others will come. There is no need to talk of talent retention and that recruitment is not an issue!
I find this mentality and mindset baffling!
This Neanderthal has a brain of a pea and the sympathy of a stone. Borne out of a father whom we heard was a glorious kind hearted being that developed and gave him the business he has today, he has not much of a commanding presence. Sans character, demeanour or self carrying, he is not one whom people would gape or gasp if he walked into any room. In short, no presence of sorts but a mousy character!
His father passed from cancer too and so, all the more I am even baffled at his lack of sympathy for the less fortunate.
I was at an event where he unwillingly presented $20,000 to a cancer foundation and was upset when he found out that he had to be seated with the two minions who were sent to receive the cheque. He had to fulfil his CSR quota – CSR is now a bad word to me as when CSR is done without heart, it just ain’t CSR.
There are CEOs and there are CEOs…….but then there was also my then boyfriend who also claimed he was a “Chief Servant” – all these puny CEOs of their fiefdom will not aspire to the ranks of Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg or Bill Gates. Zany or otherwise, at least their contributions to the good and benefit of society is significant and not in any way demeaning.
Will there be a reprieve at the a minute before stroke of midnight when policies lapse? I doubt and am not hopeful and hence, will not be holding my breath……I might just be asphyxiated by doing that! 😀
