A member of staff has turned up to work with pupils the size of black holes, their jaw is set hard at an unnatural angle and they are continually sniffing loudly as if they have the bubonic plague. What is the appropriate course of action to take?
Staff turning up to work worse for wear is nothing new in corporate life. A good manager will take this on board and recall the days when they too used to stumble in to work five minutes late, looking like a tramp and smelling like a badly run brewery. The best thing to do in this scenario is to make it clear to your employee that such behaviour can only be tolerated so much – unless of course they give you the number of the person that supplies such top notch gear, then you might be persuaded to turn a blind eye to it all.
Hope this helps!
