This was sent out by one of our sales reps to his entire sales team, to his boss, his boss’ boss, and a member of my staff.
How’s that for totally inappropriate for the work place. My favorite lines:
“The beach itself is really nice, and the night-life is….um….very, very colorful (insert winky face)”
“Any weekend you make the extremely wise decision to join us, I will personally guarantee your happiness :)”
So the question for Evil HR Lady: how in the sam-h*ll do you react to something like this?
Well, yes, first you chuckle. Then you delete the e-mail because 14 other people have already forwarded it to employee relations and his boss has already called him into his office and chewed him out.
At least I hope that is what happened. Some people have no sense. Like, for instance, I got an e-mail from an employee I laid off in January. It’s not unusual to get e-mails from such people (I encourage them to contact me if they need help with anything). What was unsual was this was an invitation to join a dating site.
People, think before you send! And never send anything that is not 100% business related to your boss. And if you want to send this horrible e-mail to your friends at work, you should be good enough friends to send it to their home e-mail.
