ex military is operating in a highly bureaucratic manner
ok, my problem began with an ex military sergeant was promoted to mgnmnt. he is operating in a highly bureaucratic manner. He believes that gossip should stop immediately. he also expects employees to be in their offices at the appointed starting time and throughout the work day, except for lunch breaks. No loitering will be tolerated, PERIOD. If anyone has a problem related to work, he or she should write a memo directly to the manager explaining the source of the problem and request a private meeting. I am concerned about these guidelines because they violate our beliefs about employee informal communication networks and value of them to our office. Can anyone offer any recommendations for dealing with this problem?
