Something A Saudi Boss Definitely Should Not Say To His Employees


You’re the new boss. You want to let your employees know that you’re in charge. If you’re in Saudi Arabia, this is NOT the way to do it. As reported by Emirates 24/7:

The new manager at the mall in the western Red Sea port of Jeddah met the workers at his section and gave them job instructions.

“He then told them they must obey and implement his orders to the letter, saying that he is their god,” Kabar newspaper said.

Uh oh.

It said eight workers reported the new manager to the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice.

“Commission members went to the mall and arrested the man, who will be referred to court for claiming he is a god…the eight workers will testify in court.”

So long, “boss.” Here’s the source.
