Good on the Creamery it is a way that they can show support and hopefully contribute some cash to a good cause.   Why do people take the proverbial out of anyone or any company that show initiative and try to do a bit of good in the miserable world we live in ?

Good cause - Preventing Cancer, The Isle of Man Hospice, Dementia, Altzheimers ………. If the Creamery wanted to support Manx Residents and Consumers, then perhaps it would run a promotion reducing the prices of its products. Cheaper cheese, butter etc helps all consumers, whatever sexual persuasion.

What a load of nonsense. It’s mostly done at weekends and staff are drafted in on their spare time to make their employers look good and little else. Subtle bribery at play. Some signing up thinking it makes them look good from a career progression point of view. But basically all done cynically to tick a box on a CSR or ESG matrix and provide some Facebook or Twitter content about how great they are. Nothing else. The bank will still sack or make redundant any of the participants when it suits them. Anyone who plays that game is basically an idiot.

Nope.  The company I work for allows the time off from work.

OK. I give up at this point as you've clearly got some kind of axe to grind.

I'll tell you why.

Because the young lad or lass reading this kind of absolute shite might be the next one to end up committing suicide. And the family will be left torn apart. The creamery are donating 10p from every pack to the Isle of Pride charity who support people in these kind of situations, plus help with education and other community activities. There are still people being turned down for jobs because of the way they speak or dress or who they identify as.

Saw a great piece from the Halifax yesterday, customers were getting all hot under the collar about a member of staff having pronouns on her badge. Halifax response: close your account and go elsewhere. Great comeback. 

Thankfully the Alf Garnett-esque members of society are dwindling apart from the noisy few. 

 

Whilst you make a good point, does what you say, particularly with employment recruitment practices actually happen on the Isle of Man? If so, then perhaps legislation is needed, and quotas to ensure that IOMG CS employ LGBTQIA+Community members, Disabled, Members of Religious Communities, Different Nationalities etc. Equal Opportunities. Sadly this definitely  doesn’t apply to the Isle of Man.

No, you have run out of the facts. 

I’ve presented loads of facts. All I’ve got back is nothingness about corporate ESG programmes which are the biggest joke going. Can we get back to debating gay cheese?

There is already equality legislation, not sure about quotas because that can become a box ticking exercise.   

The hope is that local companies will embrace the ESG and s172 objectives voluntarily.

No you haven't.  I have given you fact and referred to the legislation in the UK.  I have also said that my employer does give time off for community work, which is a fact, but you dismissed that.

OK, I'll bite.

In their own time - is that just HSBC?

Redundancy - has happened for many, many years. Jobs come and go. If you keep your skills up to date and relevant, it isn't a problem. Actually, an opportunity in most cases.

The sack - not the employers problem. If someone is underperforming, that's only down to them. Although I'd hope the employer would do their best to stop it getting that far.

You work part time. How much flexibility do you need? By far the most people who participate in this sort of cynical nonsense do it in their own time at weekends and are coerced into it. As for the UK legislation it mostly doesn’t apply here.
