That's exactly the right attitude. If employers treat their staff like market labour, employees can do the very the same with their employer. A good buisness operates with a social conscience, those ones that don't will not retain their best staff and their business (effectiveness and productivity) will eventually suffer as a result. In a market economy, that means the competition attract better staff, and you go out of buisness. Very short sighted attitude portrayed by @SkipdiverJohnI am currently parking my bike in the warehouse as instructed until i speak with the area manager to share my concerns. If the AM gets arsey about it, I'll just start looking for work elsewhere. He's not the only employer in town.
The employer isn't refusing to allow bikes on the premises, they are simply dictating where they will be allowed - and the OP doesn't like this because they have an expensive machine and a precious attitude. At the end of the day, the employer runs the show, not the employee. Accept it or be your own boss.I agree to a point, but good employers would recognise that good staff will be recruited and retained more easily if you accommodate their needs. .
yeah but, judging by your inflexible attitude towards your hypothetical employees... it'd be the staff choosing whether to stay or go rather than you. You're not going to win employer of the year anytime soon I'm afraid.The employer isn't refusing to allow bikes on the premises, they are simply dictating where they will be allowed - and the OP doesn't like this because they have an expensive machine and a precious attitude.

The argument about recruitment and retention only holds water up to a point. It depends on the nature of the job, skills, experience, and the hassle and cost factors of replacing staff who leave. If I was employing staff, I would obviously like to keep hold of good reliable ones, but it wouldn't extend to tolerating anyone who was intent on simply being a pain in the arse.
