There’s always a lot of talk about people burning bridges. Today I’ve had my eyes opened to this in quite a big way. I’ve heard through a long-lost contact about a previous employer and some of the things that have been done since we left a former company. It’s amazing that people burn bridges in a big way… The old colleague of mine (long-lost contact) will never work for this previous employer again…because of professional integrity or rather the lack of it.
We’ve had an example of that here recently. And it amazes me still. We can all work together harmoniously, but people forget that when they leave…and say the strangest things about former colleagues to other people, thinking they won’t find out? Or maybe hoping it will do them some professional damage…? You have to wonder about that.
