Avoiding and Preventing Any And All Office Scandals

It doesn’t happen often but it still happens anyway, especially if the organization is big and people have a hard time keeping track of so many people. Scandals could go from anything conflict-related between co-workers to outright sexual-related stuff. It’s best if we don’t touch that with a fifty-metre pole. In order to actually avoid and prevent any of it, here are some things to note.

Unequal Treatment

Avoid giving anyone special treatment or any form of favouritism. As much as they’re fun and entertaining when watching it happen in a show, a movie or even in stories when an attractive superior gives a cute subordinate a ride, it still is very unprofessional in real life. At the end of the day, other employees will start seeing this as unfair and will want to put out their own best interests while they doubt their very own executives.

Lead Through Example

If you’re going to be a leader of something then be a good role model to your subordinates. Set a good example to them and avoid doing anything unethical, especially when they are in the vicinity. If they see your example of being a good worker, then they will follow suit, with fear of doing anything undesirable in their minds.

Leaders Not Held Accountable

Then there are those types of leaders that are actually found doing something unethical or even just slightly wrong. Subordinates tend to fear reporting them or outing them because they’re the superiors. When there is no one to put them in their place, the leaders will start to think that it’s okay to keep doing what they are doing. Like the previous factor, set a good example as a leader.

Encourage Sincerity

It’s already hard enough to be honest and tell the management about the misconducts and misbehaviors they found around the workplace area. So for those who DO actually have the bravery to be honest about it, reward them. Make it known that you encourage it and reward anyone reporting the ones who does something bad in your company. Don’t tolerate any unprofessionalism from your own employees and promote honesty while you’re at it.

Hotline For Whistleblowers

Make it easier for your workers to tattletale. Have a hotline so they can easily report the misdeeds and misbehaviors that are going on.

Discourage Workplace Flings, Romances or Adulterous Affairs

Dissuade any of these especially if it has something to do between a manager and a subordinate. Any kinds of love affairs need to stay outside the workplace where they belong or else it is just going to end up a disaster when it isn’t stopped.

Being Lenient

There is a reason why there are 1st, 2nd and 3rd warnings when a tiny offense happens. A worker could accidentally disregard or forget one guideline and everyone else sees this and thinks this is okay. They would then start to conveniently forget about the guidelines too and mess the whole system of the company. Properly tell them off and issue the warnings. Make it a point to tell them that this isn’t allowed but are willing to forgive on the first try. Our workplace is a place for work. It is not a playground and it is not home. Treat it properly and behave properly to avoid any possible issue that could ruin the reputation within it.
