Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about a company owner who creates chaos and drives away employees: What are the options for coping with the top guy who changes the rules?
I work as management for a three year old telecommunications company owned by an individual who wears many hats. The company has a couple hundred employees. He is constantly changing the rules for the organization on a moment’s notice. He seems to enjoy the chaos it creates and the fact that everyone is kept off balance. An example: he promotes and demotes supervisors without warning or explanation. The result is the employees are constantly on edge and turnover is high.
