“How To Cards” for Pret


These sub-pages will contain “How To Cards” for Pret A Manger that are missing in their repertoire, especially HR to do the “right thing naturally”. Pret’s HR department is a vital instrument in people’s struggle to get fair treatment. I have never experienced such toxic environment under this HR department, and my aim to better my situation as well as that of my colleagues was a wake-up call that nothing can be changed under a toxic HR department. The head of HR wanted me to raise grievances if I had any more issues (the bullying continued but nothing was changed). So I continued to raise grievances while traumatized and on autopilot.

It was a waste of time, but I learned a lot, certainly how corrupt and non-caring this company and department is towards hard-working people who become an inconvenience when bereaved.

Side note: I had 10 grievance, appeals, then disciplinary and dismissal hearings. Each hearing was held with 2 people (one Hearing Manager and one HR Person taking notes), 20 people in all. Out of the 20 people in 10 hearings only 3 were men! They chose 17 women to hold these meetings! I leave it up to the reader to speculate what this may mean.

(Pret’s Head of HR said in the end that I “exhausted the HR department” with all the grievances I raised, that he prompted me to raise after refusing to change the climate at work.
