I have a workplace colleague who is always late, lazy, inefficient etc, etc, I know we have all had one, this is of course the public service. I have applied for, and been selected for a period of management in the position that I would be supervising this man. I have consistently flagged these issues as, well, issues with my management, well before I commence this upgrading. Lots of talk, talk, talk but no action whatsoever. This person has been like this for years and nothing has been implemented and as a result these behaviours have become worse. I've had enough after an early departure today yet management saying this will be taken out of toil with me saying this man doesn't even work the hours he is paid for, are you ffs serious? I am seriously considering declining the new job because it just does my. Head in. Now, I cannot see the wood for the trees, any suggestions.
