Discuss: When the worst happens…

Sometimes a part of performance management involves dealing with uncomfortable situations. In this discussion, you will explore this facet of talent management.

Read the following scenario:

While an employee, Fred, is using his office to change clothes to participate in the company-sponsored yoga class, he notices that the webcam on his company computer is active, though he is certain he had not turned it on. Fred immediately alerts Security. Upon further investigation, IT finds that an employee, Ginger, has been tapping into multiple webcams across the organization. Gingers’s supervisor is requesting you assist with the conversation regarding this situation.

For this assignment, create a script of the conversation you would have with both Ginger and Ginger’s supervisor.
