Question: to Ask the Workplace Doctors about Stolen Ideas
I work in a small office (5 people). The place has been pretty shaky over the past few years for a variety of reasons. Many people have left and the handful of us who remain are not planning on being here long term. Our salesperson left to start his own competing advertising agency. He tried to take our clients with him upon leaving. Now that he has been gone a couple years, he has become buddy-buddy with our office manager. He takes her out for her birthday and buys her gifts. She mentioned to some of us that he was trying to sell her some kind of website with a sponsorship business model.
