Regarding morale at Kirkland Lake Gold ( head office

It's never an easy thing for an office to adapt quickly to a new CEO, but the way that Tony Makuch has decided to treat employees at Kirkland Lake's head office like children has really rubbed people up the wrong way, with the phrase "out of the frying pan into the fire" coming to mind. Just one bone of contention is Makuch's insistence in taking a roll call twice a day; a member of staff has to go round early morning and then in the afternoon with a list of all people working at the office, from janitor to VPs, and check off the names of all those present. This hall monitor's list then goes straight to Makuch's office (not even human resources) for his personal perusal, presumably to note any serial absenteeism.

Pour encourager les autres, I suppose.
