10 workers quit after being forced to zip bags

If you don’t have faith, you have nothing. That goes for relationships—and the workplace.

A woman named Lexi (@rjalways.trippin) brought her workplace high spirits when she shared in a TikTok video that employees were being forced to zip their bags.

It is likely that this was done to discourage workers from stealing. But the strict requirements backfired when 10 workers decided to quit, Lexi shared in the text overlay on her video.

“When 10 people quit we had to start taping our bags at work,” Lexi wrote as she stood in the employees’ bathroom and turned to show the red tape on both front pockets.

Comments on her video have been disabled, but it is beneficial for a company to build and maintain an environment of trust for its employees.

A 2017 Harvard Business Review article found that people who work at trusted companies have positive stats, such as: B. 74% less stress, 106% more energy at work and 13% fewer sick days. They also have higher productivity, more satisfaction with their lives, and less burnout.

Lack of trust isn’t something that’s unique to traditional American workplaces. It can also be found in unconventional workplaces like Hollywood.

Take Friends For example, the hit ’90s sitcom that actress Lisa Kudrow worked on for 10 seasons as the quirky Phoebe Buffay. She has fond memories of the show — except for one.

During an interview with Jimmy Kimmel Live!Lisa revealed the network had strict rules about taking props home.

“I mean my car was searched every night I went out,” she revealed. This is despite the fact that cast members often said that the team dynamic on the show is like family.

At the end of the series, she received a keepsake instead: the “Cookie Time” jar that was kept in Monica and Rachel’s apartment.

Friends isn’t the only show that’s super strict with its props. In a Metro interview big bang theory Set designer Ann Shae revealed her team was instructed to microchip her props.

“Warner Bros. was so strict,” she told the publication. “And they’ve microchipped every single item on all the sets and made sure they can track it. We were instructed to donate everything we had to archives, and we did. It took months and months of packing and logging.”

They would assume that the show’s cast would have enough notoriety to take the items they wanted. But Ann explained that was not the case. They would have to contact Warner Bros. directly if they wanted an item.

So how can companies start trusting their employees? Well, for one, they can let their pockets breathe.
