Exactly. It's all about ticking boxes and ass-covering and not actually doing things like managing people or running the business.
Based on its international reputation, I was kind of hoping that this was a well-managed, well-run company, staffed by smart, well-trained people who knew what they were doing. Nope. Silly me! It's as poorly run as the smallest family-owned business I've ever worked for, which, in a lot of ways, makes it exponentially worse, because this company really should know better.
(I hate to admit how long it took me to get through the sexual harassment/proper behaviour in the workplace course. I was working from home and my brother stopped by, asked me what I was doing--I was in the middle of the training module at the time--which led to about half-an-hour of jokes and banter about "appropriate" office behaviour, of the type that would be definitely discouraged according to the training module. These things really aren't as effective as HR departments hope. People who know how not to behave as animals won't cause problems, while people who prey on others will keep doing so, despite what corporate training is supposed to teach.)
