ANOTHER CULTURAL TIME BOMB EXPLODES

This story is yet another horrible example of ‘Growth at any Cost’ culture.

Because of simple demographics the one of biggest issues organizations are facing is the attraction and retention of employees. I refer you to my book, ’From Bully to Bull’s-Eye: Move Your Organization Out of the Line of Fire,’ where I focus on ‘Bullying and the Retention of Talent’ (Part 3, section ii, pp 175-181)  In 2016 McKesson was ranked the 26th most admired company in a LinkedIn survey.

There is no doubt that McKesson has worked hard at becoming an employer of choice by having progressive employment practices and benefits. If the allegations against McKesson are accurate, they will find that progressive employment practices and benefits are not a substitute for a prerequisite condition that employees should consider of their employers - trust.
