Sanjay, the union rep, and several others offer some practical advice.
Sanjay is the union rep for Cutting Edge employees. He is not happy about their employment contracts or the new “at will” conditions announced by Carol and Marcus. Some members of the staff are shocked when they receive their latest “contracts” and learn they are only for a week at a time. Sanjay stresses the importance of reading a contract carefully and being familiar with the terminology before signing anything. Carol is unimpressed, pointing out there are always others looking for a job. Sam does a practice contract negotiation with Casey who gives in to all his demands.
Cutting Edge Communication training videos are designed to provoke discussion and response. Contemporary, fast paced, short, character driven, sitcom-style comedies, these courses take an innovative approach to reaching today's learners. Through laughter, discussion and reaction, we can all develop a more transparent and shared vision of how we wish to behave, how we manage ourselves, and how we cooperate with others.
While some find them insensitive or even outrageous, the vast majority of viewers and participants have found them to be refreshing, stimulating and ideal for injecting energy and enthusiasm back into learning.
