I am having a roller coaster ride on my career path. I started my career as Service Delivery Partner than got the position of HR Manager in an organization and now I am working at the position of Business development executive & HR recruiter.
So many changes in just 1.5 years of career. Ya, people say it's the instability but I realised I am intolerant towards wrong work ethics.
Please answer my question: Where has humanity gone from humans in corporate world? We are changing machines to humans and humans in turn are becoming machines. We doubt each other but blindly believe on machines. We say emotions are not to be used at work place then what is the difference between human and machine? And why humans are comfortable working with a lie but not with the truth?
I apologize if my question is wrong to anyone unintentionally.

Dear Gargi,
Social dynamics changes according to the needs of the times and so do business enterprises. No insulation is possible against the percolation of the permissiveness of the society into its micro-constituents. To me, your intolerance to the existing state of human relations within a short span of 1.5 years of tenure probably blows things out of proportion. Then, try to empathise a person of late 50s still active in handling the human resources like the millennials in work life. If you realize that existence is always in flux, you will certainly do away with the Aristotelian logic of duality in life i.e adaptability v. compromise and seek for the third namely meaningful toleration. Tolerate simply means our acceptance or endurance of something unpalatable with forbearance!

Dear Gargi,
Your post is highly interpretative. I request you to write what exactly was the issue.
Secondly, I recommend you preparing your career plan. Have you done that? Rather than worrying about humanity and all that, it is better to concentrate on one's career.
Recently, I had given reply on career planning. Take inputs from my reply. The link is as below:
All the best!

Did you work in the same organisation?
What exactly is the wrong work ethics which you object?
Corporate world is highly competitive and sometimes in the process achieving results, people behave differently and appear inhuman.
Adequate EQ is a highly desired quality in corporate world.
So try to accept the pressures of corporate world and try to balance it out.
One need not be machine like programmed and tuned like a robot.
Be human to the extent possible while working to best of your ability.
You have voiced your feelings in a general manner, but if you are seeking advice and solutions, one would need to be specific about details.

75 percent of careers are derailed for reasons related to emotional competencies, including inability to handle interpersonal problems; unsatisfactory team leadership during times of difficulty or conflict; or inability to adapt to change or elicit trust. -Center for Creative Leadership
Take care and be happy.
Things will work out well.
To increase your effectiveness, make your emotions subordinate to your commitments. -Brian Koslow

Many excellent views have been expressed.
When we see our career or for that matter even in our private life, we are fraught with situations that are not on our control.
Most of the popular Management theory or for that matter even our Indian philosophy suggest that we are always responsible for our actions in most cases.
When we come across situations not in our control it will be prudent to do what best can be done from our side or leave the scene.

One correction please. ... not in our control... is the correct usage. V.Raghunathan Chennai

I am thankful to all the replies in here.
I can draw the following conclusions from all of the above:
1. Never give up.
2. Be your best
I'm greatful to the supporters here and also to the adversaries.
Would personally try imbibing these qualities in myself and as an HR will help my colleagues too to understand this.
