How many more suicides will it take before the Company concerned realises they have a major problem?
Like all news bites we are not made aware of the full situation or the company policy over mental health issues. They may indeed have an open door policy, but it begs the question - how open is that door? Judging by the memo, what do you think?
These workers are fly in , fly out. I envisage turn over is high so they may think " It'll be someone else's problem soon".
Use Social Media to berate the company you work for at your peril. Especially when the "dog" you berate has teeth. I do not condone the message he posted. Anger, resentment and frustration led to the post and there is never a worse time to use social media / email when these emotions are running high. Write how you feel, but delay a day before hitting the send button. 99.9% of the time you will be glad you took this approach.
Let's hope this will be the last suicide there. If action taken to prevent it going forwards then one good thing will have come out of this.
One last thought. If this man had not posted this on FB and been dismissed- would the suicide have merited any media coverage?
