The situation is a harsh HR reminder
Matt Hancock has resigned his position as Health Secretary of Great Britain after is emerged that he was having an affair with colleague Gina Coladangelo. The pair were filmed embracing in his Whitehall office – with the video soon leaked to global media. Prime Minister Boris Johnson faced intense pressure to fire Hancock, with the general publica generally outraged over his flaunting of strict COVID guidelines – guidelines Hancock himself rolled out. The situation is a stark reminder of the dangers of workplace romances, and what can happen if employees don’t abide by HR policy.
