Have to disagree that the former employee shouldn't be charged with a crime. The person that initiated the fraud and received unjust enrichment is the former employee. As I understand the story, he was employed, and left without telling anyone. The act of quitting and not telling someone isn't a crime - but receiving and accepting the pay (to the tune of about $650K) is significant theft and the matter should be prosecuted. Admittedly, how it happened, and the duration for which it did does not reflect well on the government hospital for sure.
Hi Ron! You're right! As I said in the video, "They're looking at charging this guy criminally, but what's more criminal..." I agree, what he did was still theft. I'm being a bit facetious here.
" il pesce marcisce dalla testa in giu" - was how my Italian client explained it - the fish rots from the head down. The manager owns the stink on this one.
"Own the stink" should be the next "Embrace the suck"
To be meaningful, KPIs need to be formulated in collaboration with the employees affected. This can be contentious. Evaluating performance against the indicators in a rigorous way can also be difficult and controversial leading to poor management/staff relations.
