Re: Stupidity

"I guess Smith's Human Remains crew is one of those thinking all employees are cheats who can't be trusted under any circumstance"

A place where I used to work did a lot of overnight processing so there was a small operations team on site to monitor, fix and escalate issues. One night all hell broke loose and it soon became apparent that instead of there being a team on site it was just one chap, and he couldn't cope. The access card logs showed that the full team was on site but the security camera recordings showed otherwise. In fact they showed it had been going on for months with the team members taking it in turns to do the night shift and most of the time they were at home in bed but earning night shift pay.

Whilst it's good to trust employees that trust does need to be verified or else it can and will be abused.
