Statement Regarding Recent Blog Post
Recently we were made aware of a blog post on a public forum that alleges a hostile work environment at our Garden City location. We feel like we need to address this post – this will be our only comment on the topic. We believe these comments to be fabrications made by a disgruntled ex-employee who is intent on harming our reputation within the community in which we live and work.
The allegations noted in the blog post were reported by our General Manager in the fall of 2018. Because of the nature of the accusations, our leadership team immediately hired an independent, 3rd party HR company to investigate not only these claims but the culture of our Garden City Wing Shack. The report concluded that there was no evidence of any sexual assault, harassment, or gender bias at our Garden City location.
It should be noted that several attempts were made by this independent organization to reach the person who originally made the accusations – no response was ever received.
Over the past six months, we have continued to work with our team at Garden City to not only ensure we are providing an excellent dining experience in a safe, clean and family friendly environment but that we are fostering a workplace that promotes inclusivity, teamwork, and respect.
We hold no animosity or ill-will towards the person making these claims. However, we find the contents of this blog post to be of great offense to our team and the values we have built over the past 15 years.
-The Wing Shack Team
