The Dangers of Disgruntled Ex-Employees

The Dangers of Disgruntled Ex-Employees | Sports Facility Management.4229729 | 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.

Alex Roberson's insight:

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.

Alex Roberson's insight:

Again, Security is a large issue in today's world. Terrorists will naturally target areas with high population in order to get their message across, being unable to control situations in which an attack would occur can cause serious consequences.

Terrorists always want to hit an event of location with both a large number of people and something of high publicity. With the Super Bowl being one of, if not the most widely televised events, it makes sense to take security so serious.
Brandon Hockenbarger's curator insight, April 26, 2015 12:51 AM

This is a great video showing what actually goes into keeping the fans, players, and workers all safe during a large sporting event.

Protecting Evacuees from Sexual Violence During Disasters Is an Important Priority | Sports Facility Management.4229729 | Scoop.it
The chaos that sometimes defines disaster response unfortunately can create opportunities for violent people to act.
Alex Roberson's insight:

Ensuring the safety of all people during a disaster is a major concern. The chaos that ensues with a disaster of any kind is a perfect time for a predator to make his move.

Alex Roberson's insight:

In many natural disasters stadiums are used as refugee camps, so as a facility manager preparedness is key. FEMA and other disaster organizations may not be able to immediately supply the necessary supplies to sustain a refugee camp, so having a basic stock pile for emergencies can save you a lot of heartache.

Sport and facility managers examine the concerns and challenges to security and emergency planning for both sporting and non-sporting events held at their facilities.
Alex Roberson's insight:

While effective, books such as this that are readily available on the internet are a double-edged sword in that they provide great insight on security for a stadium but, they also allow those who wish to penetrate security just a little bit more of a jump on security.

Great article!!1

Crown management one of the most under appreciated jobs there is. Standing on your feet for the duration of an event. Plus those who attend don't understand you are only enforcing rules governed by the stadium.

Hospitals are always looking for ways to transport their patients as fast as possible—typically by helicopter or by ambulance.

Via Dr. Gretchen Richards
Alex Roberson's insight:

Having large capacity ambulances in the area is a great asset should any catastrophic event happen in the sports facility. On the opposite end however it may overload hospitals quicker resulting in re-routing patients and more down time on the "Golden Hour"
