A Global ProTech employee contacts you, her HR professional, because she has a concern about her department manager, who she describes as rude and unappreciative. In addition, the employee expresses that she believes the manager has taken credit for her work on a project. She adds that her manager’s emails are often impersonal, harsh, and curt.
