“We need to disseminate the news to everyone. The new company policy will start next week so make sure you check the call-in and vacation sheets to see who you need to call with the news. This is an important move for us and I think it will bring the staff together. That’s all for now, so it’s back to work everyone.”
The people in the room quietly filed out, I was one of them. I didn’t hear any conversations like usual at the end of a department heads meeting. I think everyone was in a state of shock. I know I was.
The meeting had been about an idea for a new monthly gathering. It was not your normal company-wide meeting though. The boss had the idea that we all should meet once a month for yoga in the park. He had recently had heart surgery and was very into doing good things for his body and wanted to spread the joy. It wasn’t a bad idea, I guess. I just think we may lose some employees over it if it is mandatory.
I went back to my desk and typed up an email for all of my staff. I guess we will see soon how it goes over.
