Its all about Ethics

Things are chaotic @ work and are getting worse each day. Reason? Lies after lies... now how patient can u be when u know that ur being told lies... It all began during my appraisal (1 on 1) meeting. The meeting was just another meeting as it happened last year the only difference was that the goals and growth path has changed. We started the discussion as usual with the work done and the roadmap for the future. However there was one significant difference this time in our meet, i had to tell my boss that these are the projects i have done in the last one year. As the discussion went on we talked about future goals, work in the team etc. etc., then came the core of the discussion my performance rating for the year and promotions. We discussed for a min. or so when my boss said Okay ur rating is changed from X to Y (to the higher side)... and after all the discussions my appraisal was closed. However, i grew a bit skeptical when the rating was not written in the performance evaluation form and after following up twice i finally got it. I carried on my work as usual and when i was told my revised package i grew a bit skeptical. The situation is like i am told "You are great" however the document says the opposite "You are not so great". To clarify my doubts i approached HR and there i came to know that the ratings in HR system and the performance evaluation are different. Yes, they are different! I had escalated this matter to the Ethics Officer of our company and since then things have gone worse. I got a reply which made mockery of the events and how come a manager do appraisal if he is not clear of the process? Amazing! I replied to that mail and was termed was disrespectful and unprofessional... Ha! at least i am not unethical. Things on Friday turned ugly, ppl have started taking things personally.......lets see what happens on Monday when i am meeting HR Director. Lets see what HR ppl say abt Unethical practices that is happening here....

Hmm, why shud the two ratings be different? That is dumb.

Best of luck for the meeting. Let us know what happens if u deem it right.

raj: The ratings are not different, there is only one rating entered in the system however i was told a different one so that i can sign the performance document and hence it gets closed.

Raj said...

People dont follow ethics at work,all of them just try to pull each other's legs.That's what my experience says!

Abhinav said...
