Promotion should be based on seniority
Should seniority alone be considered for a promotion? What are the other primary and secondary aspects which need to be factored in, when considering a promotion? List the aspects and justify the need for them.
I think promotions should be given based on seniority as it does not look good if you are promoting a junior employee when the older employee is still doing the same job for the same pay. It demotivates the existing employees and people will think the promotion is given based on personal preferences.
At times promotions may be given based on talents and abilities and that might be a welcome move as even the co-workers know that the other person is extraordinarily talented. But in some cases, certain employees just promote employees thinking that they perform well just based on their extrovert nature and mingling skills. Are these factors to be considered for a promotion or should it be done on the basis of seniority so that every person gets a chance to be promoted.
