Should You Quit if Your Boss Lies to You?
Posted by Insightlink on 06/23/16
We recently heard a story that brought to light how one lie can erode your best retention efforts and send your best employees out the door.
A campus hire at a top tier company was overlooked for a special high profile meeting. When confronted, the employee's manager, did not have the answer, and chose to lie about it instead explaining/lying that she was not invited was because she was too new to her role.
The employee discovered this was a lie because other new hires who had been in their role even less time had been invited. It was discovered that HR made an error and should have invited this employee and they were indeed sorry. The manager also apologized to the employee but the damage had been done.
What can you do when a manager lies?
Common fears are:
1. Fear of being known completely
We have numerous clients using our Exit system and bad managers are frequently cited as the key reason employees quit their jobs. This tells us firsthand how important it is that every employee feels their boss has their back, at all levels. Once trust is lost, employees may never trust their boss again, they won’t be as willing to give their all and they are most likely having thoughts or are in the process of planning their way out.
So if you think your boss is lying to you and your personal lie-detector starts going off, what action should you take?
According to Meyer:
Distrust can spread through a company like a virus creating huge unwanted problems that you'll have to allocate time to dealing with. It’s worth making sure you know what is going on.
