A few of my coworkers and I received an e-mail this afternoon telling us that we must attend a meeting on Monday afternoon to address a “very serious issue” in the company. It didn’t go to everyone in the department – only a handful of us got invites.
It sounded ominous, so I e-mailed one supervisor and asked what was going on. She said that the company VP will be talking to us about ethics. I half-jokingly said, “I hope it’s nothing I did.” She wrote back a few minutes later and said “I don’t think you were involved in it.” :eek:
So it seems that this meeting was triggered by a specific incident. Although I’m presumed innocent (for the moment, at least), I’m one of the few employees who has to attend this refresher course in ethics. And I have absolutely no idea what prompted this little gathering.
Everyone on the guest list is a pretty good employee. I can’t think of anything we have in common that separates us from the rest of the cubicle dwellers. Is this just a generalized warning about office misconduct? Is this a sign of mass firings ahead? Are we being assembled to form a team of superheroes to wipe out unethical behavior in the workplace? I guess I’ll find out on Monday afternoon.
Any Dopers wanna speculate on the reason for this meeting? I’m getting an ulcer over here.
