As far as I can see most of this happened when those on the Island wouldn't have been working from home on the Island - most of the key events were in Autumn 2020 and after.  The only person working from home was Magson and you would have thought that made her bullying less effective and those colluding with her would have had plenty of opportunity to try to stop it.  The fact they didn't is telling of the culture in Manx government - one that some politicians have been happy to endorse because it gave them an easy life.

I get that, but did the whole scenario gain traction while people were WFH and while their only peer contact was with the other players?

I just wonder if you kind of gather (in this case the wrong) camaraderie when you are shuffling off to your laptop in your PJs to have yet another Teams with your counterpart  similarly unburdened with the etiquette and protocols of a formal environment?

Anyone starting in HR will have huge sympathy with the person on the other side of the desk, natural human reaction, whether they are setting performance standards or listening to bullying complaints.

However, as they move up the hierarchy they will lose touch with the 'Faces' and will be meeting more and more with other hierarchy adopting their attitude and maybe contriving to be 'one of  them'?

We should start getting really worried as soon as Hetty reassures us that there's nothing to worry about.

(I'm sure there's a video somewhere where she assures us that nothing will come of this new virus from China)

I thought the same thing. She also said it was like a bad cold or flu and then denied that she said that at the tribunal. Even though she said had said it on the public record.

A certain department was invited for a meeting today and reportedly thanked for their service.... this HR women certainly doesn't seem to be the last...

I guess Public Health because what's the point of them if we just follow Public Health England anyway.

is very sad, primarily for Dr R, but why didn't some of the lesser players say "hang on a minute"?  Or was the WFH environment allowing aberrant behaviour to go unchecked even if it is just a passing comment from a colleague "oh, that's a bit mean"?

It just seems everyone was unfettered even by a basic sense of fair play. How could anyone involved believe it would end in anything but a car crash for all involved. 

You’re being way too charitable.   As I alluded to in a previous comment, I suspect that the “lesser players” that is the layer of management below Ms Magson (ie, those currently resigning or already gone) were happy (or even keen) to do what she wanted.   The arrogance which allowed them to bully, sideline, backstab etc was based on the sure knowledge that Dr Ranson would go off into the sunset, like so many before her, and the clique would be back to business as usual in no time…

…or is that too cynical?

Now Ms Coney, Head of HR!

She'll be hopping off to another job then? In her next interview, she'll be Lapin from the other side of the dish?

A little light entertainment in this serious matter.

Is that true?

The silence around her position is deafening. 

Perhaps the wheels are in motion and they’re waiting to announce?

I do hope so.

Lots of wheels in motion I'd say and to clear out this amount of people and others to come , as you know , takes awhile but it seems to be all happening remarkably quickly . Interesting days to come. !! .

The Ranson Decision shows her collaborating with Magson at several meetings (some of which she 'forgot' about) so as to exclude Ranson from the Manx Care MD job. Based of course on nothing more than Magson's spite.  It showed that her idea of HR wasn't doing the best for the staff or the organisation, but catering for the whims of whoever happened to be in charge at the time.

Hmmm, far from the only Government department or office where the managers have applied this self-serving principle. #collaborators

Maybe because of her position in the hierarchy Ewart is being allowed some dignity in how she chooses to go?

Why?  More dignity than was afforded Dr R?

The text exchange was shocking.  To treat a colleague in that way was reprehensible and that is only what we have seen.

Possibly a role that can’t be let go off immediately? There is no deputy that can fill in.
