I am raising a new hot topic for debate and discussion. Over the years being in the HR profession, I was closely watching,experienci ng and hearing the unethical practices which exists in many businesses.
I have also noticed that couple of companies are very good at ethical practices and known for their people friendly practices. Now-a-days in many organisations lot of unethical practices exists like people forced to do personal work of their bosses, you need to give in unwanted favours for getting career moves, better increment ,Getting short-listed for a plum posting etc.
I don't want to elaborate much on personal favours and is a weed in IT as well as ITES business but is less in other sectors. The practice of getting financial and non-financial gratification from vendors and suppliers is also widely prevalent and recently a major MNC was in news for that. This is very high in the manufacturing organisations. Other practices like victimisation of the whistle blower, bullying, unwanted scolding in public etc. are also noticed. In most of the cases the senior guys will get away with this and the junior guys will be the sufferer.
I request the learned professionals across the globe to suggest the ways and means to cope up with this menace and how to eliminate these practices from the business. Your contributions will be much valuable for the young professionals, who are facing these kind of situations by themselves or can help the affected employees. You may critically evaluate the topic and give your inputs.
I personally hope and trust that this would be really interesting topic for this month and with your contributions we all could make a New Resolution of making our organisations ethical in their practices.
