A new CEO, Alisha Anderson, met with her leadership team to emphasize the importance of
trust within their positions and to reiterate the need for the team to demonstrate trust throughout
the company. She did this because employee morale had been quite low for some time due to a
lack of trust in leadership and the staff feeling unsupported. After recent layoffs and the
changing of CEOs, however, morale had hit an all-time low.
After the meeting, Alisha also met privately with Corinne Maddox, who is an employee working
under of one of Alishas direct reports, an executive team member named Erwin Patel. Alisha
and Corinne had a full discussion about moving Corinne into an office with a window, a privilege
typically reserved for employees at the executive director level and above. After the meeting,
Corinne went directly to HR to tell them that the CEO had approved her transition into a window
office and HR needed to handle the move.
The HR executive went immediately to Erwin and asked him if he knew about the move and if
he had authorized it. Erwin hadnt heard anything about it, but he disclosed to the HR executive
that he had recently been told by another member of the team that Alisha © 2019 Laureate
Education, Inc. Page 2 of 3 and Corinne seemed to be meeting alone in Alishas office a lot
lately. This same team member shared that she overheard Corinne having a hushed
conversation in the break room during which she was bragging to another coworker about how
she was going to take full advantage of the dirt she had on Alisha for as long as she could.
This team member had expressed concerns to Erwin that Corinne was getting special treatment
because of whatever secrets she knew about the CEOs personal life. When the HR executive
addressed Alisha, she said, Look, I authorized it, so there is no need to discuss anything
further! The HR executive and Erwin were concerned, but they werent sure there was anything
they could do.

DS Clothiers DS Clothiers, a sportswear company based in the UK, has gained worldwide
popularity as the new high-fashion brand of comfortable yet elegant clothing separates for
adults. Daphne Simms, the companys founder, is a young entrepreneur who has received
much praise from business experts for her use of up-and-coming designers to keep costs low
while providing these young creative self-starters a chance to break into the fashion industry. In
addition, the companys social media team is known for being able to effectively reach its
customer base. The companys social media presence, as well as its affiliation with a couple of
pop stars and athletes, has gained them worldwide notoriety in a short time, with very little
Recently, a popular fashion magazine received some information from a source inside the
company about the foreign suppliers DS Clothiers was using, claiming that these low costs,
combined with high prices, allowed the company to bring in enormous profits. After further
investigation, the magazine ran a story about the labor conditions in these countries, where
employees work for long hours at very low wages in sometimes dangerous environments. The
source also described the unreasonable expectations set © 2019 Laureate Education, Inc. Page
2 of 2 for the companys employees, especially the social media team, claiming that employees
are expected to be available 24 hours a day and work 70 hours a week on average. The
magazine interviewed someone who claimed to have worked over 85 hours in a week.
The board of directors immediately identified and fired the whistleblower. Those in leadership
were divided on how to proceed. Some thought that it might be time for some changes, while
others felt singled out and that the attention was unjustified because many other companies did
the same things without issue. The companys sales took a major hit after the article went to
press, and Daphne Simms immediately responded by issuing an apology on the companys
website and social media platforms. She also did numerous media interviews to address the
companys tarnished reputation.
During this same time, in an effort to promote good business practices, DS Clothiers partnered
with an organization located in the UK that promotes fair labor practices and environmental
sustainability worldwide. The partnership raised some concerns in the business community,
however, because the chairman of the organization, Thomas Simms, is Daphnes father.

and if damage has been done, there may be a need to not only correct behaviors but also
