The ethics of misrepresentation

Monday 18 December, 2023

swirling ocean water

My workplace positions itself as supporting flexible working arrangements, but as a manager of a team, I have recently been advised that my own KPI's will now include how many people in my team commit to working in the office every day.  In addition to this, recent promotions were noticeably given only to people who are already back in the office.

Knowing the personal circumstances and arrangements of some people in my team, plus the fact some only joined the organisation after it promoted its flexibility during the recruitment process, I am uncomfortable with this new direction and feel the oganisation is not being true to who they say they are.

What should I do?
