Policemen come into contact with a lot of criminals. Nurses come into contact with a lot of sick people. So, it’s not surprising that a HR consultancy aimed at the HR failings in the supported housing sector comes across examples of bad practice.
Yet to issue an article highlighting this that states this is common practice and again now a ‘significant minority’ of 15% as a figure for bad staff as some sort of post facto apology is speculative and severely damages the overwhelming vast majority of workers who do work unsocial hours mostly at poor rates of pay and who often are subjected to assaults too.
We are all fed up with bad staff, just as we are all fed up with crooked police, even more crooked MPS, negligent nurses and social workers and even aggressive residents in supported housing.
Many feel much more strongly than 'fed up' that 'luminaries' in the sector advocate soup runs promote rough sleeping, or are complicit in the cleansing of East London of rough sleepers ahead of the Olympics, or when such 'luminaries 'in the London-centric world of homelessness and rough sleeping play patsy to rough sleeping czars who claim rough sleeping has been greatly eradicated and don’t even rail against hosing down tactics akin to unlawful torture practices, the credibility of such charges needs to be placed into context.
When such luminaries then besmirch the integrity of many long serving and hard working dedicated support staff with inept and damaging articles such as last week and this inept apologia then such damaging ineptitude aimed at positioning one such luminary as the arbiters of good practice, despite such complicit and disgraceful forelock tugging to successive governments and losing sight of their charitable ethos, criticism and rejoinders based on fact and experience hold far more sway than luminaries in ivory towers.
