A culture of management avodiance
Electrical Consultant (Former Employee) – Wstern Australia – 2 January 2017
People in middle management are reluctant to take responsibility especially where it may effect their pensions. Hence,there is a cultural of middle management avoidance in meeting compliance responsibility especially where the requirement is required in speaking up and drawing attention to senior management about meeting compliance requirements of contractors, infrastructure, plant and equipment and safety of members of staff.
A pragmatic approach is applied and taken when convent but, always by a view of middle management on how the reporting of any compliance breach in how it will effect a persons pensions if they report the compliance breach to more senior management. A culture of avoidance not to 'rock the boat' better to say nothing, report nothing, comply with minimal compliance with any ever eye on one's pension.
What the executive sets is not necessarily interpreted the same at middle management level as been pragmatic, possible or even practical if, it has an outcome that it may effect middle management pension out comes.
Safe job as long as you don't report non compliance matters
