Inspirational Boss of the Year Award

I’m thinking seriously of having a prize for inspirational boss of the year. If I do,  then this year’s will almost certainly go to Mr Steve Ivell, of Ivell Marketing and Logistics Limited in Clacton, Essex. Why, I hear you ask, is there unlikely a more worthy candidates for the accolade this year? What has Mr Ivell done that is so very special that would make him a shoo in for this years throphy ?

His great contribution to management, and our understanding of what it is, and should be, has been to sack with “immediate effect” on Kimberley Swann, a 16 year old who cannot have worked for him for long enough to see what a sterling leader he is, for saying that she thought job “boring” on Facebook, the social networking site. Mr Ivell will have none of that, least of all from a 16 year old whippersnapper who has crossed the line.    

“Had Miss Swann put up a poster on the staff noticeboard making the same comments and invited other staff to read it there would have been the same result,”

“Her display of disrespect and dissatisfaction undermined the relationship and made (her job) untenable,”

“We thought that Miss Swann’s best interests would be served by working for a company that would more suit her expectations.”

Well done, Mr Ivell, you are truly an inspiration to all of us. We cannot afford to be soft on crime or the causes of crime. Personally, I cannot understand why you did not have this culprit taken out and horsewhipped. Oops, that kind of thing is no longer allowed.
