What the ****?! Council issues staff warning over office graffiti

Banksy’s take on the matter, in north London

It seems that the council workers in Taberner House are beginning to express their frustrations with their mismanagement.

Widespread redundancies, with more to come; much reduced employment terms imposed upon staff; allegations of bullying and poor practice. Now staff appear to have taken matters into their own hands.

The following message was sent out on Croydon Council’s internal system this week:

Stop and ask yourself…

Would you behave like this at home?

Over the past few weeks there have been repeated incidents of the lifts at Taberner House being defaced by expletives.

Whether you are a staff member or contractor, or simply visiting our offices, criminal damage such as this is extremely offensive and is expensive and time consuming to fix. The council reserves the right to instigate legal proceedings against the perpetrator(s).

Got frustrations you need to express?

If you are a member of staff please be aware that defacing council property is deemed gross misconduct under our disciplinary procedures.

If you need to express work or personal frustrations, please contact our Employee Assistance Programme on 0800 243 458 for free and confidential support.
