Workplace ethics

Head of Department Joe finds out that Shirley has an interview for a job in another company. Joe has spent a lot of time developing Shirley's skills to enable her to do her job well.

Shirley has asked Joe to coach her to do well in her interview.

Should Joe coach Shirley?

If Joe's company and Shirley's potential new company are owned by the same parent company, does that make a difference to your answer?

No! It makes no difference. The question might be asked though, is why Shirley wants a new job, and what can we do to encourage her to remain.

If Joe and Shirley only see each other at work, on company time, then I don't think Joe should coach her. If he did, he would be taking pay for time that he is spending in a way that probably does not advance the company's interests.

If he is inclined to coach her from friendship or goodness, he ought to do so outside work hours.
