The new compensation design will soon be cast upon us. I sincerely hope all the employees will watch closely. We all are impacted, and not in a positive manner.
In my management role, one task was to provide input to job documents and to provide input to a mapping exercise. I will soon be placed into a situation of defending what was done, how it was done, and more. If I fail to support my upper management, I then am looked upon as not supporting the effort. But I cannot speak openly about the blatant disregard and lack of integrity to this new design.
My own attempts at providing an accurate representation of my employees has been undermined by higher powers that be. This has resulted in what I, along with other colleagues, have determined to be false elevations of leveling, and a significant injustice to what may indeed be a best practice. Once again, our esteemed Laboratory management has adulterated a design for self-serving purposes.
To further this argument, there is no longer a trust of the HR management team. My fellow colleagues recently became aware that a thespian is the lead person of this design. Pray tell, how does one support and defend that which is created and sold to us by an actor?
I am required to defend this new design to my subordinates. But how does one do so when there is apparently no leading expert in such matters within our own HR arena. I am able to defend my own credentials to peers and colleagues. Can that now be said of our own HR department? I submit that it cannot. What credentials can be provided by the HR team leading this new design effort?
Caution to my fellow employees. We often state that we hire the best and brightest. I now presume that we mean the best and brightest at "something", but not necessarily the best or brightest within the desired field of expertise.
And to our Laboratory Director. What has allowed you to bear consideration for a person of the stage to lead and be the spokesman for such an important endeavor?
A continued sham on the part of our new corporate parents. How sad. Most unfortunate in all this will be our staff, all of them. They now have the best and brightest actor deciding their fate.
