Our company is currently implementing lots of HR policies aimed at boosting morale and driving so called 'employee engagement'. They are getting us to go on team building exercises and planning a huge end of year xmas bash and other wasteful events which cost way more than it should. Why can't they just use this money for raises or to hire more staff? That's why so many people have left!! It seems like such a waste and not everyone would like to spend their free time socialising with their colleagues especially since our firm is well known for the long hours we clock in. But what can we do?
