There are certain employer behaviours that should not be tolerated, yet day in, day out I hear of friends who subject themselves to abuse by their bosses. This campaign was reportedly produced by a Brazillian agency, but the issues it raises are very much a reality in Singapore also.
Have a read at this and know what’s wrong and speak up against this type of behaviour.
1.) Is your boss isolating you?
Do you think that your boss is not involving you in projects and meetings? Is this his way of telling you that you’re no longer needed and want you to leave? Well, if they want you to leave, they should tell you – and make good the severance pay.
2.) Does your boss treat you like “monkeys” and “donkeys”?
They may or may not actually say it, but demonstrate it in their actions. Do they act like you’re so dumb and show it in the course of work?
3.) Does your boss or supervisor limiting your potential?
Do they restrain the opportunities to improve yourself? Or worse, do they make you feel small, stupid and unimportant?
4.) Are you being threatened?
Threats of termination, frozen promotion, over-time work and constantly reminding you that “there are many people hungry for your job” are all threats and should not be tolerated.
