Rakesh has been working as Assistant Manager in a logistics company for the last ten years. The company is in a growing phase and has been making a lot of effort to acquire talent globally. Lately, many candidates with lesser educational qualification and experience have joined the company at a higher scale than the one being given to Rakesh. Even others with lesser experience are being promoted. Although yearly performance appraisals rate Rakesh as „Highly Effective‟ but he has never been offered a promotion. What are your comments on the situation? Do you think such situations are the result of policy issues or simply inadequate HR management? How far is Rakesh responsible for the situation? What should he do?

In the present scenario people should think about the employability. Commitment and loyalty is ok but if the management is not taking care of the seniors then the employee like Rakesh should think about himself.
Mr.Rakesh should approach HR and the senior management and discuss about his case. I agree the market is very hot and it will be difficult for the mangement to get the people with lower cost but it doesn't mean that we should neglect the old, committed employees. To avoid this type of differences the management should adopt the service weightage and ensure that the employees who are there with the organizations are taken care.
Finally it is better for Rakesh to present his case to HR and senior management and similtaneously should try outside. If the management is ready to upgrade him is ok otherwise should go for a change.

Dear George
Projects for MBA students, help them have a practical insight to corporate world. If students dont take time in solving their project, then people who seek answers to MBA projects on online forum will end up much worse then Rakesh.
