--From Chuck Klosterman In I Wear The Black Hat
When it comes to Employee Relations, any investigation you do of general bad stuff is going to uncover a lot of ugly things. Human nature takes over and people do things they shouldn't.
However, at times you still need to look at all the bad in any situation and determine, who's really responsible? Who is the bad guy/gal in this situation?
I think this quote gives us the best guidance in those situations. The true villain is the person who knew the most about what was going on, but never had his/her sense of doing the right thing kick in.
If you're thinking about firing people for conduct unbecoming of a professional teammate, let this quote be your guide.
