The Dangers of Disgruntled Ex-Employees

The Dangers of Disgruntled Ex-Employees | Sport Facility Risk Management | Scoop.it

 

Ex-employees who believe that they have been mistreated by the company where they worked may be highly motivated — and effective — at competing against their former employers.

 

A study of professional soccer players found that players who left a team on bad terms subsequently played unusually well against that team, fueled by anger and pressure to prove loyalty to their new organization. This phenomenon, known in professional soccer as the “Immutable Law of the Ex,” was tested through a study of 402 head-to-head matches in the English Premier League from 2000 to 2005.

 

The findings are relevant to other settings in which organizational performance relies strongly on individual contributions, including advertising, legal services, sales and high-technology design. Disgruntled former employees can hurt their former employers by sending out critical emails that get propagated widely, by joining a competitor or by starting a new company.

A study of soccer teams suggests that ex-employees who leave on bad terms can be tough competitors.

Alex Roberson's curator insight, September 22, 2013 8:43 AM

Firing someone is never easy, especially if the person thinks they have been wrongfully terminated or mistreated.  Disgruntled employees commonly have knowledge of the facility and are sometimes willing to share that info with less  than reputable people.  That knowledge being shared may be all a person needs to sabotage a facility or bring up legal actions against the facility, neither of which are good.

Sustainability is one of the most important aspects of any new architectural design and in recent years we’ve seen this spread into the world of sports stadiums. Traditionally, the concept behind sports stadiums has been to create a colosseum-like structure which adds theatre and creates an incredible atmosphere with little prior thought ever given to sustainability. Recently, things have begun to change and we’re now seeing more and more architects giving sustainability the attention it deserves when designing new sports stadiums...

Design for Ethiopia's New Stadium Blends Tradition With Modern Materials, Engineering

Design for Ethiopia's New Stadium Blends Tradition With Modern Materials, Engineering | Sport Facility Risk Management | Scoop.it

A consortium led by Australia’s LAVA has won an international competition to design a national stadium and sports village in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Its concept blends traditional Ethiopian architectural and construction practices with new technology to create a modern piece of infrastructure.

The team was selected by Ethiopia's Federal Sport Commission (FSC), which wants to replace the current 25,000-seat national stadium with a 60,000-seat stadium and related sports facilities. FSC wants to begin construction in 2014.

Traditional Ethiopian architecture includes examples of excavated historical structures, including ancient rock churches as well as dwellings and cisterns. The team's concept, which includes a sunken arena surrounded by grandstands formed from excavated material, captures elements of those traditional treatments in the stadium’s design...

Dolphins paid for Miami Chamber of Commerce study saying Sun Life Stadium adds $1B to economy

Dolphins paid for Miami Chamber of Commerce study saying Sun Life Stadium adds $1B to economy | Sport Facility Risk Management | Scoop.it

The Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce wants to increase hotel taxes to help pay for a $400 million renovation at Sun Life Stadium.

 

The business group’s board on Wednesday endorsed the Miami Dolphins’ financing plan for their home stadium, saying the upgrade will be good for the county’s economy. The Dolphins want an annual $3 million state subsidy and millions of dollars in Miami-Dade hotel taxes each year to fund the biggest renovation in the stadium’s history, including a partial canopy to shield spectators from the sun and rain.

 

Under the plan, Miami-Dade would increase mainland hotel taxes to 7 percent from 6 percent, making them the highest in Florida. Miami Beach is also expected to raise its hotel tax to 7 percent to fund improvements of the city’s convention center.

 

Sun Life is vying with the new $1 billion stadium in the San Francisco area for the 2016 Super Bowl, and the Chamber’s resolution endorsing the higher taxes cites the economic value of winning that game. A Chamber study funded by the Dolphins concluded that the Dolphins and Sun Life generate about $1 billion a year to South Florida’s economy. Citying the study, the resolution said the stadium renovation would create 4,000 construction jobs and pump an additional $2 billion into Miami-Dade’s economy over 15 years...
