The book covers various aspects of antisocial behaviour of employees, reasons for employee frustration and so on so forth. There is other side of the storey.Even management policies are anti employees.Employees are motivated by threats,allurements ,false promises and by treeorism. One of the organisations was facing the problem of high turnover of employees. A press repoprter enquired from the CEO whether the turnover was due to pull factor
( competitors offering better package) or push factor ( creating such a situation in the organisation that employees are compelled to leave the job) the excecutive replied it is the push factor and not the pull factor.There are executives who manage by deceit,threats,falls promises.All these are antisocial behaviour on the part of management team of organisation.This aspects need to be highlighted.
