An Employee, Have You Ever Been Passed Over For A Job Promotion?
Halo-Orangees’ employer-employee “one accord” Volume I One Mind, One Body, One Team confronts the real-life workplace issues occurring in organizations world-wide (negativity, drama, power struggles, backstabbing, friend-family hiring, and endless gossip). There are many relatable real life characters in this book such as, Suzy T. Harassed, Chelsea Courage, and my personal favorite Employee Strong.
Employee Workplace Challenges:
To add insult to injury, Chelsea is held back from promotional opportunities within the division (Excerpt~ Halo-Orangees Book).
In the end, Chelsea feels defeated and, most of all, violated (Excerpt~ Halo-Orangees Book).
1. As an employee, have you ever been passed over for a job promotion, however appointed to train the employee hired for the position in which you were overlooked?
2. Did your manager overlook you in order to hire their friend and/or family member?
3. How did this affect your workplace behavior?
4. Did your actions demonstrate your unwillingness to properly train new hirer?
A huge interview flop occurs when employers hire their friends and family members. Despite nepotism policies, this is becoming the norm in companies globally. If the friend or family member is incapable of performing his or her job duties, does this mean that it is more important who you know than what you know? When friends hire friends, their salary is usually higher and the workload is usually less. Although it is good to build positive, healthy relationships within the workforce, all employees within the organization must meet the same work requirements. If a manager chooses to hire an applicant with whom he or she has a personal relationship, it is important that the new employee be made aware of the company’s rules and regulations. All employees, regardless of whether they are a friend or a relative of management, must be subjected to the same standards applicable to all other employees. Halo-Orangees believes that in cases such as this, those newly hired employees should hear the following at the end of the hiring process: “I will give you the tools you need to succeed; however, at the end of the day, each employee must earn their stay on the team.” This sends the message that all staff members are required to meet the expectations established within the organization. It also sends the message that there are no free rides. The personal relationship between a manager and a new hire should never compromise the customary working relationship between coworkers. Other employees should not be made to fear coworkers based upon their relationship with management.
