Worst HR policies: For investors and job seekers Vijay Mohire
Discussion Item Three – Sample case study Agenda Discussion Item One – Introduction Discussion Item Two – Pointers to watch Discussion Item Four – Conclusion Item 1 Item 2 Item 3 Item 4
Introduction • Pointers to ponder before starting on a new venture ◦ So many jobs, companies !! ◦ World wide need of labor ◦ Different culture, diversity ◦ Hidden agenda of corporate leaders ◦ Do you fit here ? ◦ Make sure you do so ◦ Life is precious and risks are more ◦ How to understand the psychology of the recruiter ◦ Investigate, invest or work
Pointers to watch • First looks : ◦ Company religion : Some call it Work culture, hiding the stronger versions called racism ◦ Reputation: Read online reviews, feedbacks from laid off workers and consumer complaint ◦ Company hierarchy: Understand the stereo types like Bossy managers, Big promotion for self types ◦ Insider trading: Bad promotion polices, wrong hires
Pointers to watch • Bad recruiting practices( Good for chosen ones): ◦ Hire the near and dear, from referrals ◦ Provide cash and social benefits to own type( decided by HR in real time when scanning resumes , annual appraisals) ◦ Promote person who seems to be fitting the religion or popular belief and dear to HR ◦ Dismiss right candidates, giving one of the 100 odd reasons ◦ Post rejection of a qualified candidate, hire a person with bogus experience, well written resume, cover letter who speaks with great passion, shows that job is done
Pointers to watch • Bad recruiting practices: ◦ Use Emotional quotient and not Intelligence to hire employees ◦ HR does not see the degree or certificates or ranking even if provided, insisting on gaps and quality of education ◦ Choose the chosen one (may be chosen by God @ birth) to hire, pay, promote ◦ Use Merit as the last resort, we don’t consider ◦ Share companies wealth to the undeserved young talent dearer to HR in many ways
Pointers to watch • Cooked Accounts: ◦ Time and money is always present by grace of GOD ◦ Source of GOD funding not surely know( It might be illegal money, money from a mint in a third world). ◦ Someone will always print money out of the blue sky and provide us social security ◦ We are sons/daughters of GOD and we are protected ◦ Keep Book of accounts as Highly rated by top brand. ◦ In reality all fair practices used to hire, fire, promote workers are done against that stated in the books. Who cares? We have money and GOD power
Pointers to watch • False brand: • Use large sum of money to brand company without quality goods / services • Buy quality certificates, popularise global brand as number 1 without really practicing it • Give assurances to Govt. for another 100 years, say we are the best and hire the best of breed (from the roadside) • Give false information to auditors and bribe them in clearing HR related lapses in fair policies • Quote we are 100% against discrimination, but in reality you will find only square red heads inside the company
Pointers to watch • Awards for chosen: ◦ Pay handsomely and give big awards and titles to falsely promoted gurus as he/she is popular ◦ HR has power and authority to hire an Electrician to do R&D work and work on hypothesis writing and experimentation ◦ He/she deserves it and he/she will be shortly promoted to CEO of the company ◦ Conduct meetings with selected top leaders who practice corruption as if it is normal and they are privileged to do so ◦ Onsite offers only for chosen illiterates and not for the deserving brightest ◦ This is the typical work culture followed here, merit is last resort
Pointers to watch • Attitudes: ◦ Forget the creator and the real worker ◦ Don’t hire the Original author or product creator. ◦ The person is not fit here as he/she is “Not Born here” ◦ Originals costs more than available in gray market ◦ Leverage the third world for Cyber slaves ◦ Enjoy your Hi positions in the company, manage (mismanage) and get the job done. Put your label and brand name on goods and get handsome man-in-middle commissions ◦ Always use religion, language to climb corporate ladders ◦ Scientist belongs to this religion, so only candidates belonging to this religion get the edge to own and manage this company /country
Case study • Visit to a Doctor: ◦ You visit a doctor just because he is certified by medical council ◦ You do not know about his background ◦ Due to political or work culture a B.S (Zoology) professor will be operating on you ◦ Doctor holds other titles like CEO of a Civil Engineering company but practicing heart surgery here as part time ◦ Doctor is Director of this organization and leads a team of real and fake doctors ◦ You cannot afford another clinic or go overseas. ◦ Do you take a chance just because he has been approved by the council or the clinic to operate on you and your heart? Or visit a real doctor in next country ?
Case study • Visit to an IT service provider: ◦ A XYZ company is popular inside few top circles- magnet ◦ A Diploma holder(Civil eng.) is chair of R&D IT Dept and he/she will supervise real and fake R&D computer engineers for a proposed IT product for you ◦ His diploma is as good as a B.Sc degree from third world nation but is not an USA B.S equivalent ◦ However the Chair person claims his degree is as good as USA BS graduation and his experience is good for a supervisor’s post ◦ As an investor would you invest in such company? Or do you work for such company if it is a global brand fortune company ?
Conclusion • What lies in your destiny: ◦ See what is true and good for you ◦ Use Wisdom and not false facts being presented ◦ As prospective job professional do conduct through background checks, similarly as done by companies on you ◦ Don’t believe brands, invest only where someone really needs you ◦ Keep away from bad HR managers( there are plenty), bad companies who always play safe for their brand even if you match to top 1% of their company
Conclusion • What lies in your destiny: ◦ Build your own personal brand and have direct business with clients who are always in need of real talent ◦ Money and top corporate positions is something that is possible to only chosen few, so don’t always run behind money and position ◦ If you want to see good results believe in yourself and provide best of your services to real clients ◦ Keep away from time wasters. There are plenty who get fat salary and do nothing
