Misplaced competitiveness?

I can recall some years back when American style work habits drifted across the pond - Personnel become Human Resources so faces and names became cogs and performance was king.

The performance doctrine here was so badly applied that people felt they had to work harder and faster or they'd lose their jobs to the plentiful supply out there in the Jobcentres (not the staff I might add).

IBS, dicky stomachs, stress, blood pressure, all part of the modern way now - all this extra work being done for nowt is standard, we set the new minima these days and employers raise the bar so you cannot do less OR you're out and down the Jobcentre.

Accountability

Great little story this. Blown up into proportions too big to fit the prison issue type plastic plate the school uses by the looks of thngs.

So blogs, like phone in's to radio stations (sometimes), are the new way of getting redress to some social situations, might even result in some sackings maybe?

One thing is that it illustrates just how nervous and reactionary modern management is to a scrap of publicity, causing tremors and worries and concerns from being unable to control things as much as they'd like.
