Most Important - please understand the rating given to you and evaluate whether the rating is correct.
Most common mistakes are : performance in the mind of many employees does not map to performance as defined by the organization.
e.g. a software company defines overall 7/7 performance for senior software engineers (sse) as those who create defect free output (75 %), show people leadership (20 %) and contribute to the re-usable library (5%). and a 5/7 rating in each of these areas as minimum criteria for promotion to Group Leader
An sse whose outputs are typically 20% better than the rest of the team, but does not progress on the other 2 items (people leadership and reusable library) will never be promoted.
Most other posts already comment sufficiently on what needs to be done in case you see that your boss has been unfair to you.
Cheers.

Hi,

Every one have given their strong suggestion to over come and make people know your contribution in the company for achieving the goals. But before putting your-self in-front of HR department and show your capability that you have done such - such things in last two years, you just ask your self whether you are going wrong.

Hence human behavior is very difficult to understand and your BOSS is also a human. My first question is, how can you understand that your BOSS is playing a knife on your career?

My second question is, If your BOSS is harassing you from last two years and not giving any recommendation on your work, how can you say that " I am Performing well but no one recognized me" ?

My conclusion on above question are. if your BOSS is playing with your career, he dismissed you before you got understand because, first, you are in stress from last two years and when a person trapped in stress, his or her performance goes down, second it does hamper the group performance.

Now you can understand by above conclusion that your BOSS is not playing with your career. if played, you can not survive for two years, got my point.

However the main problem situated within your-self, rectify your Attitude, working Behavior and instinct towards work, don't go with gossips, separate your self from unparliamentary talks, always use strong channel for communication.

don't figure out your index finger cause your four fingers are watching you.

My suggestion is, you just write a mail to your BOSS rather HR department and request for your Promotion/Increment with indicating achievement of last two years of your performance. This will help you sure.

Vikash,
Hopefully, you do not use the same view when engaging with employees at your organisation.
Most of us do know, and make an effort to stay in the know about ongoing politics in the organisation.
There definitely are many instances, when performance evaluation is an opportunity, used blatantly by inexperienced ones, and very subtly by the politically capable people.
Mr. Sethumanoharan,
Please read my earlier post which will help you understand whether there honestly is something unfair in the treatment given to you, by your boss.
In case there is unfairness, please do read the other posts, which cover the ways in which the situation can be dealt with.
Either ways, please take any action, whether confrontation/discussion with the level +1 boss/etc. only after you have another job offer. If the boss is biased, then your career is pretty much over, even if the past mistake is rectified.
Cheers !

Hi Agnyeya,

My Friend was also implicated with this kind of situation from May 2007 to sep 2010, He came from Export house company and joined as a HR Executive in Infrastructure company, He was not a part of HR team in his first 20 days, his seniors had given him a separate room and given him most difficult task to do but he had completed the task before time and accordingly every one recognized him. After three years of rendering his service they were not given any increment and promotion but his colleagues had received reward and recommendation and promoted to Sr. Executive but he was still a HR Executive in Hr department, he knew that he has trapped in office politics however his attitude towards work was remain same, in the month of October 2010 management had promoted him as Sr. Executive HR and again they promoted him Asst Manager HR in 2011 January.

once he knew that no one recognized his performance which was excellent, last week of September 2010,He simply wrote a humble letter to his department head and elaborated his achievement and ask for promotion and increment. Management accepted his letter and promoted him Sr. Executive and within three month promoted him Asst. Manager.

Ok dear, this is the most practical solution that i have learn from the environment..

Vikash, my response about existence of politics is specifically to this section of your post.
This part of your post indicates that the boss would have fired Mr. Sethu if he had been playing politics.
I have stated that many bosses play politics, giving lower ratings, but do not dismiss employees.

HI agnyeya <link updated to site home>

JAI SHRI KRISHNA, JAI SAI RAM...

I WOULD LIKE TO ASK YOU JUST ONE QUESTION.

DID YOU GO TO YOUR OFFICE DAILY ASSUMING THAT YOU WILL BE FIRED TODAY?

IF YES, THEN REVERSE YOUR THOUGHT. THE WELL KNOWN FILM STAR OF SOUTH EVEN WE CAN SAY NOT SOUTH BUT AN ALL ROUNDER FILM STAR NAMED " DR KAMAL HASSAN ".

HE SAID- LISTEN TO YOUR HEART FIRST. YOU KNEW THAT YOU ARE SUFFERING THEN ALWAYS PUT YOUR RESIGNATION IN YOUR POCKET.

I MEAN TO SAY BEFORE BOSS SAID YOU ARE FIRED, FIND THE GOOD OR GENUINE JOB. KEEP ON WORKING AS YOU ARE DOING. IF STILL A DAY COME THAT EXCEEDS YOURS TERRITORIAL WATERS OF YOURS FEELINGS, WHEN YOU HAVE HAD IN YOUR HANDS A GOOD / GENUINE JOB, GIVE HIM A PLEASING SURPRISE SAYING THAT"

" I FIRED MY SELF AND THIS IS MY RESIGNATION" AND GO AHEAD FOR THE NEXT JOB AND BELIEVE ME WITHOUT LEAVING THE OLD JOB, YOU CAN NOT REACH AT THE SALARY WHICH YOU THINK YOU DESERVE"

MEINE HAMESHA AISAICH KIYA. THESE WORDS PERTAINS TO MUMBAI LANGUAGE BUT I FELT VERY AWESOME THE WAY MUMBAI PEOPLE SPEAKS.

AND ONE MORE SUGGETION IS DO IT WHEN YOU ARE EQUIPPED FULLY WITH JOB IN YOUR HANDS.

I JUST SAW YOUR COMMENTS ON INTERNET YOU HAVE POSTED. AND IF YOU THINK THAT THE SUGGETION IS NEGATIVE THEN PLEASE IGNORE MY COMMENTS AND I AM SORRY IF YOU THINK I AM GIVING YOU THE WRONG PATH.

REGARDS

Dear Sethu, Plz. quit the company and search somewhere in which you can use your full potential and learning could be there.

Interesting... Since you are the first person, I will avoid being critical.

Confrontation may not be always good. Visibility is required, but you need to get positive yield from it. I would ask him for some SMART improvement plan... (simple, measurable...). Work it out as best as you can.

At the end of the day, if you have already got a timebound plan and have still not been able to perform according to the boss, you need to be a little more objective. Most often, our impressions can cloud our thinking.

I recall a colleague of mine who spent several years in a position. The boss used to keep telling him his areas of improvement. For some reason, the guy didn't buy them! Finally, he came to me for advise. I demonstrated some of the factors he mentioned and he realized that there were some issues. However, he did little about it and soon started getting frustrated. His expectations were still not realistic.

Its hard to be objective at times. However, if you are convinced (by way of some kind of 360 deg feedback), you might seriously consider changing your situation (internal transfer or even quitting the company). The blame game you are seeing in some of the posts to POINT OUT the aberrant, is not a realistic way to assess your situation. It might skew your perception of your intrinsic value and bring in a different kind of comfort.

By the way, we have a program based on the Bhagwad Gita that helps executives evaluate their dimensions. I would recommend your taking some such help because you need new perspectives. We also have some offerings on systems thinking that is extremely useful for executives. If you would like, you may attend the same. Alternatively, you might want to register for a short course elsewhere... Which in my opinion is the best option to ensure you keep developing the right way.

No solution is possible in the present case as suggested by Mr. Gurgar. Rather it will be the wastage of time and the loss of piece of mind.
The two possible solutions are (a) to pray for that your boss quit or (b) you quit. I earlier case it is uncertain. So the only cogent solution is solution (b).
Think FAST and Act FAST.

Hi to all..,
Dear Manoharan,
If you quit your present job and joined in new Big company., with good package and with suitable designation.. And after completion of 2yrs “IF YOU FACE THE SAME PROBLEM HERE TOO” what you will do…
My suggestion is sit with your Boss and talk to him..
What he is expecting from you?
How much you are performing for given taks?
And ask him directly which are the areas that you need to improve?
And compare with in your organization who are in the same position or with same salary ?
May be you can find some good time..
All the best.
Best Regards,
Vishnu V Reddy
Sr. Executive- HR
