Lady Quits Job Because Her Boss Calls Her “Sweetie”

A lady, who goes by the name Sarah Mcgovern on social network site Facebook, has quit her job over what she described as harassment and persistently being referred to as sweetie by her boss. Sarah took to Facebook on December 7th 2017 to narrate her experience.

She wrote: I don’t post many deeply personal things online, but I want to share this. I quit my job about a month ago because of harassment. Below is my letter of resignation. I think it’s important to share this truth, and to know that many of us will not tolerate the abuse. We can and should walk out.

“Hi Elias, This is my letter of resignation, effective today, October 31, 2017, my last partial day of employment. Since the second day of my employment, on October 12, 2017, I have asked you not to call me “Sweetie.” I have asked you not to call me Sweetie more than 5 times since then, and you have still not respected this request. I nearly walked out because of this last Tuesday, October 24, 2017. I stayed to give you one more chance, because you said you finally understood how important this request was, and that you would stop this specific behavior immediately and for good. You only agreed to this after I told you in anger and tears, ready to quit, how important it was that you stop. I was very upset not only from the name calling, but also because I knew you were discussing this dynamic with Tony, who just days before had come up and said to me, “Sarah and Sweetie both start with an S” – a completely inappropriate comment, seeking to instigate an upsetting situation for me, brought on by your behavior. Now, even after all of that, and with your own agreement to stop, this morning, October 31, 2017, you called me Sweetie again. This is unacceptable. I have never heard you call any of the men at your company “Sweetie,” which shows that this is clearly only a behavior that you are directing at me as a woman. Your team is even aware of your poor treatment of new female employees. One team member actually told me, while laughing, that they take bets on how long “each one [referencing females] will last.” That was shocking to hear, to say the least. For these reasons, I am resigning. Gender-based discrimination is one of the most overt and harmful ways you can create a hostile work environment, an environment that is very damaging to one’s health and well being. This is what you have done, and I will not tolerate it. Please confirm your receipt of this letter, voice any disagreements that you may have. Please also send my final paycheck (for 45 hours, 40 last week + 5 today) to my home address at …. Street, Garden Grove, CA …. as soon as possible, and let me know once it is mailed. I hope in the future you are more careful in your treatment of others. It means more than you realize.

Sincerely,

Sarah McGovern”

Mactay Consulting Partners SAP to Bring Training to Nigeria

Mactay Consulting Partners SAP to Bring Training to Nigeria

Mactay Consulting is partnering SAP, a vendor of enterprise resource planning to become SAP education partner in West Africa. This is a feature to bridge the gap between employ-ability and the unemployed.

As per the couple, the settlement is ready to connect with, mould experts and business associations paying little heed to their part preparing them to accomplish upgraded profitability and improvement.

The partnership is portrayed as a dream enlivened, and will have Mactay Consulting giving existing and prospective SAP clients more with less limiting SAP education content accessible comprehensively and to build local capacity in Nigeria to end up plainly as a center point for training in the West African region.

Mrs Elizabeth Rotimi, the Managing Director of Mactay Consulting, at the partnership conference in Lagos, said: “We have been working towards bringing SAP closer to us. This partnership is not only beneficial to professionals but to the Nigerian economy.

“As this increases the value of our currency; prospective and existing SAP users do not need to travel out of Nigeria spending a lot of money to get trained. We are now available to provide more with less expenses”.

Training Account Executive for SAP East and West Africa, Naisula Keko, said SAP would help West Africa in information exchange and capacity building.

Keko said there has been an extremely gigantic gap between employability and the unemployed in Africa where we don’t have skills and many SAP abilities within managers and representatives.

“You can’t be a pioneer in the event that you don’t train individuals. Training is vital to decrease work place hazard. We would partner with Mactay to convey packages that are specific to the market. We would have a local product with Mactay,” she said.

According to her, the long term impact is to change the world and area, seeing more aptitudes and more neighborhood experts going into projects.

Chief Group Human Resource, Dangote Industries, Usen Udoh, highlighted the process of giving learning opportunities in an association.

Udoh included: “Associations which give learning opportunities to their employees address the core of the expectation to learn and adapt; remunerate individuals that mentor individuals, burn through cash on-board individuals and reward individuals that make a special effort to help in the work environment.”
