It is a well-known fact that HR/management are really there to look after the reputation and interests of the company. I learnt very early on to make sure that 99% of communication with anybody in a company is written. I.e. in the form of the emails.
Of course, the management and the individuals concerned aren't too happy with such arrangements because there is always a potential for their unreasonable behaviour etc to be exposed. Hence they seem to enforce the verbal communication/just come and have a conversation with me narrative.
I prefer to deal with people with written communication. And I'm asking for advice on how best to respond when people say just come and have a conversation?
Having worked in several companies and seen cultures/incidents that have taken place emails/mission correspondence is the only way that I can ensure I am looking after my interests and myself. How can I best say that I prefer written communications?
