I may have started a shit storm at work this morning lol There was an email sent out this morning that one of my co-workers grandmother IN LAW passed away and that flowers were sent and a card would be going around for everybody to sign. I am very sorry for her and her husbands loss, but here's the problem. I can think of two people, other coworkers, who recieved nothing ~ no acknowledgement, no flowers, not even a card, when they had immediate relatives pass away. The person who sent the email is also HR, so I asked her what the policy is on that because there are a few people with hurt feelings now. Basically it's the managers responsibility to either take care of it, or let someone know to take care of it, and it used to fall to accounting to do it, but I volunteered to be the go to for flower ordering in these situations. It wasn't even me who didn't get flowers, but it really upset me that it seemed like favorites were being picked. So hopefully we can get a clearer policy down so that people aren't looked over or forgotten. I feel bad that HR felt like she was being attacked, but if we hadn't of said anything, nothing would be done.
