This guy has quit in the most obnoxious way .. and two days later I know that he has been hired by an Agency that did NO background check on him. I wrote to the Executive creative director and I did not even get an auto mail reply ;)
And its the premier agency for German heavy weight automobile company ! !
My gut feeling sensed something fishy a month back but I though of his little kid etc. and was fooled by a fake and a liar who lied to me in my face till the last moment of how ethics and work meant so much to him !!!!
Alok can give more insights on this issue. He is doing a doctoral degree on this topic these days .
yes, its his fb post that instigated me to post this. In fact i wanted to cal him and vent!
This type of attitude is very common and unfortunately a lot of companies do not do a background check. Very recently I have confronted someone with more than 20 years of Industry experience and who supposedly 'helps' entrepreneurs, for recruiting unethically from my company and he responded to me that they had been 'ethical'. World is full of hypocrites.
Need to take a deep breath, bounce back and look towards the future. For every 10 such losers you will gain atleast 1 superstar.
Another point, never get emotional in your decision making. Nobody will worry about your kid before leaving. Sounds harsh but true. My many mistakes have made me much wiser :-). Always have a fair and effective process to deal with this to avoid overreacting or under-reacting. Happy to answer any questions.
Alok, need a blogpost on this.
I think you are getting over-emotional. You can dismiss him, that's fine. Its for the future of the company and other employees.
But just another viewpoint, as a leader one should be inspiring, and even the best of people need that motivation, communication and connection.
