    Office decorum disturbed in managerís absence

    A group of male colleagues indulge in extended smoking hours in the office. The brand manager is on leave and I am the officiating one. I need to put this matter straight but my seniors said that it would create melodrama in the workplace. What should I do next?

    Re: Office decorum disturbed in managerís absence

    Although it is a concerning problem and requires some action against it but the seniors are right.Any strict actions taken by you might result into melodrama and more disturbance since you are the deputy who is officiating in place of the brand manager.However,office decorum is an important factor for the smooth functioning of a firm and a good working environment.You should look to solve this matter without taking any harsh actions ad holding patience.

    -You can summon the colleagues for a meeting.
    -Discuss this issue with them explaining the negative aspects of this.
    -Explain the problems faced by you and other employees due to their act.
    -Make them understand the necessity of maintaining the office decorum for smooth functioning of the office especially in the absence of the brand manager.
    -Request them to improve.
    -Request them for their cooperation inorder to help you maintain the proper working of the office.
    -If they still does not improve,then give them a warning.
    -If still the matter does not become alright,report to the higher authority regarding this issue and ask for interference in this matter.
