Even this challenging situation would ease
Although the management in any company push for an effort for establishing the transparency within the different levels & segments so as to bring improved levels of satisfaction among the employees in order for the good employees to stay longer as this is important for any firm to be into business. Good employees works as a good resources to increase the efficiency & the productivity of the company in this highly competitive world.
But by bringing up these kinds of facilities also got the limitations within this as it's not possible for the ground level workers or the employees to communicate with the top management. Due to this drawback few suffers & not able to receive the remuneration in comparison to what they have offered to the company. But in this very scenario I don't find any better alternative other then to quit & make themselves comfortable somewhere else.
All the managers up to the top level will be doing the same way and the actual work will be accomplished by the lowermost levels.
Surprisingly this system is prevalent not only in Govt sector but also in the private sector.
There are some managers who very well know how to terrorize their juniors and get the work done. They create a fear in the minds of their subordinates so they simply comply rather than to argue.
Knowledge is power.
For instance, in one Public Sector Organization, the boss was one who licked up to the bosses above and grew so fast. However, when his old colleague was asked to report to him, he saw the golden opportunity to spoil his future. This subordinate was brilliant in his own right. His views of HR issues seemed to be grounded on sound logic and he won, several friends, across the organization.
This angered the boss, who did everything possible to crush the subordinate. He would carry the dirtiest of tales to the big bosses in New Delhi, would give him non-value assignments to irritate him and so on. This subordinate was too smart, but had to tolerate the excesses of this dirty boss.
Such dirty bosses, virtually take the subordinates for a ride.
Having been to restaurants, I've seen places wherein the boys and girls will be running around trying to get food delivered, tables freshened but some managers who just stand and walk around like a proud peacock. In a few places, I've similar managers who get to the floor, fill water/wine or get the tab etc. They supervise but also chip in when the staff are stretched.
A good manager should be fair to all, stern when needed and act like a two way channel for the benefit of the firm and the employees.
Reducing rudeness among employees is a key focus for many companies now.
Cultivating politeness is the solution for this problem.
If you work in a multi- cultural (workplace with different nationalities) organization, you face peculiar form of rudeness. For example, in India, an assistant and a Manager can sit across the table and talk face to face, But, in Arab countries sitting face to face in a Managers room is rude. That is why, you can see, chairs are kept at 90 degree position.
Similarly, politeness also varies across cultures. For example, Japanese will ask, Could I possibly bother you for a moment? For the same question, a German will say 'we need to talk'. It doesn't mean that Japanese are more polite than Germans.
What I want to say here is that what one thinks as an acceptable behavior may not be acceptable to colleagues. Rudeness and politeness varies across nationalities/cultures.
