Dear All

I am working as an asst hr mgr in an ngo in delhi. the hr team here has just 3 members including the director(MALE aged 57 yrs) n the manager (FEMALE aged 32 yrs). The Manager has the Director working n reacting on her whims n fancies. She does only typing work(e mail replies to be specific) of the Director,n can go out to any extent to please him!! they come n leave office together in the director's car, n do most of their personal work n shopping together during the office hours. I am very professional in my approach n donot talk n mingle unneccssary with others. As a result its me who is doing most of the hr jobs including appointmnt letters, joining, induction, probation,appraisals, making salaries,compliances,trainings,HR manual,handing resignations n final short, most of the jobs done in the HR Division, plus filing n other admin work. I have asked the Director 3times in a span of 6 months to review the work done by us n to distribute work for better effeciency. but in his opinion, the Manager-HR is helping him in strategic HR(God only knows what they do all the day in a closed cabin!!!! strategically!!).:confused:
I am getting frustrated day by day with the workload n having quarells at home!:(:(

Many of you must have faced such biases at your own workplace.Pls advise how to find a solution n end this problem...

You can stick to the KRAs defined for you. You can simply and diploamtically say no to any additional work coming to you.
Be diploamtic and play your own games. Do what you want to do but the way that the others may feel that is what they had asked for....
The only thing i can suggest here is Tit for Tat.
Play a safe game and create the rules first

thanks tejesweni n shah.. but how do i refuse to do a particular work given by my boss? As it is he is biased towards this lady, for reasons other than professional work. Will it not affect my appraisal if I refuse work given by him? I have started feeling stifled, as within my department I cant share my apprehensions with anybody, and outside HR I can't talk abt this to anybody, since HR is supposed to be "CONFIDENTIAL" and moreover I cannot trust anyone that they won't go back n tell the director.

Dear Ranjit Singh,
As of now you have not attained higher designation. More work you do at the lower level, more the exposure, more the mistakes and finally more the learning. Take the situation as blessing in disguise.
The other side of the situation is you just do not grow by working more but the by the feedback, advice and grooming by your superior also. On this count, you may not get a better support from your superiors.
Otherwise suggestions given by Shahanal are quite good.

Dear Ranjith Singh,
It so happens in small organisations. Do not take it as a serious issue. The best way to tackle these kind of situations are to stick to your assignments and do it in a postive way.

I totally agree with Mr dinesh, donít be frustrated by it. One thing is sure that the situation never ever remains the same in one persons life maybe this is your hard time but I believe everyone at the start of the career face difficulties like this. I also faced the same where my colleague was the close relative of my boss but what happened that by additional responsibilities developed multi skills & was offered an excellent position in an other organization. The workload to which I use to curse now I feel that was the main reason why I got the new job.
Secondly if you are doing so much then I will suggest that donít confront your boss but do tell him everything that you are doing to make him realize your worth but never ever say anything negative about your boss in front of anyone in the organization because then it can really harm your position.
Another informal suggestion will be to develop good working relation with the friends of your boss & try to show them your worth this is an indirect way to communicate your worth to your boss but again never discuss him negatively ever.

Dear Ranjeet,
I think you can think in an other way. They ultimately help you to become a HR Manager. You just use the opportunity and devote 2-3 months more and trying to get another job applied for the position Asst. HR Manager. But don't be emotional. Yours works help u to go ahead.

Dear Ranjeet !
Mr. Jaydip has said quite rightly. Your company is paving a very good way for progression of your career unknowingly by making you "All in One" . If your so called HR manager is a duty-oriented person, you would have not got a chance to learn those works !! Is n't it.
I too worked in a renowned company in Vijayawada for quite long time. During the recent times of my joining, everyone has played a lot of cheap tricks with me, like dumping all the works on to me. I took very hard initially, but I decided to learn everything whatever I can. Consequently I got a good offer in a MNC, where I have laid down all most all the procedures, which I learnt in my previous Job.
Do not take everything to mind, live with the situation and never try for a confrontation with Boss.
All the best to you
