It is so important that an organization is aligned with my values. I believe people should treat other’s as they would like to be treated. One of the most important values to me is honesty and communication. Communication can go a long way in solving problems. If a problem is never addressed it can create more problems down the road. That doesn’t mean that everyone will always agree with the outcome or solution to the problem, but it is a starting point. I have learned through the years that not everyone has the same values, but I do respect their values and beliefs and expect the same in return.
The organization I work for is very diverse, to say the least. We have one supervisor that feels it’s okay to scream at his followers on the workroom floor. I have spoken with this individual on several occasions. It is sad to say, but there is no getting through to this person, and he is my first chain of command. He belittles most of the employees and intimidates them. So much so that most are afraid to approach him for anything. This has been going on for years. He does not intimidate me, nor do I allow him to scream at me. I went to his boss, which was useless because he is intimidated by him also. So I had to go above his head. It is currently in the hands of the PM.
If there is a serious problem at work, you have to follow the chain of command. I do know that if the PM doesn’t take care of the problem, I will go to his superior. Employees do not have to put up with a hostile work environment. Again, treat others as you would like to be treated.
