It is different to be casual after you understand the people around you & not before.If your Boss is a serious person it is important to understand & respect his/her seriousness. Protocol in Companies have to be respected & maintained . Misdemanours of this sort may land you in trouble. Even now if you feel sorry you can melt the Boss "s heart.

It is always a good idea to find out what kind of working climate exists in a company when you are a new joinee. I do not think that the management can possibly give an exhaustive list of do's and don'ts. As professionals we need to behave in a mature manner. Instead of shooting off that mail, he could have checked to see if such a thing was acceptable.
Having said that, if I was his direct reporting manager I would have quit in protest because the MD completely sidelined him and behaved like an autocrat.

hi its highly unethical. Even if the MD receives any mail which is unwanted, he can ignore and get along with work. He has a huge responsibility than porking his nose in such silly issues. He could have sent an all the best note to this guy which would have made him very happy or just ignore it.
Some of the top officials think that they are so high and they need not talk to any junior level people and think its a disgrace to them. But they completely forget that the effors of all junior level contributes more to the development of the company as they get involve in the clerical and physical job.
I read his mail, the introduction is very good and i wish him all the best to get a good job. This company is unfortunate to hold him with them, but i am sure he will find the fortunate company which will be benefitted by choosing him.

In my opinion sending an introductory mail is certainly not the crime here. No doubt there seems lots of enthusiasm and energy in his mail but being a Sr. HR Executive his mail lacks professional touch and seems that of a College going guy. He holds a position which should show up some maturity than being fun and freak loving kind. This is where the importance of Summer training and industrial training one needs to understand and learn.

There is always a protocol to be maintained. Therefore, before sending out the mail it is important to understand whom it is to be addressed to and sent to and accordingly the content be designed. This kind of mail is certainly good among friends and peers but not to MD and other Sr. Management persons.

May be it was also too early for him to open up this way. Rather, he should have first tried to understand the culture of the organisation and there after by creating a good rapport with in the Company could have initiated for a culture change gradually and step wise if at all he felt the need in such a short period.

To my understanding and as also known to me thru some of my colleagues and friends in TATA group Companies, it is highly professional but a Culture Value based Company. Probably that is the reason the MD should have considered this kind of introductory mail to cause a dent in the existing culture of the Company.

Indeed, termination of the candidate is too disproportionate and harsh an action w.r.t the mail and not the right approach on MD's part. Even warning at this stage and for this reason is not appropriate.

Had I been the MD and not liked this kind of a mail, I would have called the HR Head and asked him to first praise for his enthusiasm and that we expect the same from him in his professional functioning too. Then introduce him to the existing Company culture, values and the protocols and Counsel and guide the guy in a fashion that he doesn't loose his enthusiasm and also respects the Values of the Company.

Members may differ with my opinion.

I offer all my best wishes and a good luck to him for a better job.

In my opinion this person hasn't done anything wrong by sending this kind of mail, after reading the mail I just thought its such a innovative way of introducing yourself to everyone and show people that you are approachful. But one thing I guess created problem was marking it to MD, may be MD of TATA coffee is person of reserved school of thoughts , he didnt understand the motive of writing this mail, still he could have just called HR head and explained the situation to him instaed of firing the person.
This guy should ask for written explaination for his termination.

I have read all mails related to this topic. I am not in a position to pass any judgment on this issue, as till now we know only one side of the coin. Simply looking at mail, we can say the person who has written it is immature & the person who has terminated on this ground only is little more immature unless something else has also happened behind the curtain.

This issue could be handled in a much better way by both management & the person. Now, I can only say that your friend should remember that everything happens for good. Learn the appropriate lesson from the incident & move on.

That guy should have given chance for explanation.The matter was not serious to extent of termination.MD may have some other reasons for his act. I feel sorry for the HR guy.
From India, New Delhi
I would really empathise him, but somehow feel that being an official intro letter , it could have been presented in a better professional language and in a subtle way about himself. Because while going thru the content i feel that he might be an outspoken and straight forward person but that won't work out in all times. Human minds are very different and un predictable. so should have been little more careful when writing the same officially.
Anyways i wish him to get away soon from this small setback.
