TS: Not doing much
Some people have a wicked sense of humour.
In the latest edition of Bonus, the KPMG remuneration newsletter, readers will find an article called ‘Not doing much’, all about a top manager being put on gardening leave. You know the thing, golf, pub lunches and phoning old clients so they know where you are.
The article goes into detail over the options available to employers and the viability of holding an employee to a one-year notice period.
In particular, the article analyses what happens when one of your key staff wants to jump ship to join one of your competitors.
All good stuff, until you realise that the author, David Heaton, is currently on gardening leave as he is about to jump the good ship KPMG for a competitor.
He clearly is quite an expert on the matter.
