Oh, well, it's just an absolute stroke of genius how our laser-like focus on those cherished shareholders is completely decimating the stakeholders. I mean, who would've thought that catering solely to the profit-seeking shareholders could result in such a beautifully comprehensive destruction of everyone else?
Let's take a closer look at a spectacle called "shareholders first" management style:
Neglecting Innovation and Improvement: Why bother investing in new systems or, heaven forbid, upgrading equipment or facilities? Who needs progress when we've got shareholders to keep happy with our stagnant status quo?
Employee Development? Overrated!: Training employees? Nah. Unpaid overtime and extra workload ought to do the trick, right? Practice makes perfect is the new slogan!
Embracing the Unlawful and Unethical: The joy of living on the edge! Who cares about ethics or legality? As long as it pumps up the profit, it's all fair game because we have a business case for it. A justification.
Cherishing Toxic High Performers: Why let a little thing like team morale get in the way of a big moneymaker? High performers who poison the office atmosphere are the real deals. We promote them.
Never-Ending Workdays: Who needs a work-life balance when you can work till the end of time? We're not here to reduce working hours; we're here to break spirits!
Pizza and Ice Cream, the True Bonuses: Forget about actual bonuses or keeping up with inflation. Pizza parties and ice cream socials are all the rage now.
Empowering Women with Social Media Posts: Why offer meaningful support like child care when you can just create a dazzling social media campaign during Women's Month?
Saving the Planet...with Plastic Bottles: Nothing screams sustainability like building Christmas trees out of plastic bottles while raking in billions from selling bottled water.
Straw Removal vs. Land Takeover: Promoting the end of plastic straws while quietly bulldozing pristine lands for profit – the perfect hypocrisy.
Mental Health vs. Ruthless Profit Demands: We're all about #MentalHealthMonth while we breathe down the necks of our stakeholders, pushing them for year-on-year profit growth.
Work-Life Balance...in Theory: We love preaching about work-life balance and family time while demanding unwavering devotion to our work-family. It's all about choosing one over the other so our decision-making skills and devotion are tested.
All these astounding feats are achieved solely to appease the gods of high profit and stock prices for shareholders to bask in their glory. It's like a symphony of corporate irresponsibility, a dazzling dance of shortsightedness, and a virtuoso performance in hypocrisy, all in the name of shareholder satisfaction. Bravo! 👏
Maybe finding balance would be a good start.
