Profit doesn't come in monetary terms only


Continued from part 3: Claustrophobic Environment can take a Toll on the Health of an Employee 

When I analyzed the situation I faced at my workplace I came up with these few points:-


1. Change the age-old practice of Restriction

The observation:- The age-old practice of keeping employees engaged in one particular domain of work for a long time creates a feeling of dissatisfaction and frustration among the workers. In this situation, if a newcomer comes and asks for more, the seniors get concerned. The management tries not to offend the seniors by giving the new employee the required exposure that would enhance his/her skills.

The solution:- Companies should arrange for new pieces of training at regular intervals to keep the employees engaged, up-to-date, and interested in their work. When seniors get to know new things they will invariably allow their juniors to do the same. This type of culture is seldom nurtured here.

Claustrophobic Environment can take a Toll on the Health of an Employee


Continued from Part 2: Self-Teaching was a Way to Attain My Moksha

Claustrophobic Environment took a Toll on My Health

The office premise where I used to work had a peculiar structure. The office space is divided into a two-storeyed one by using a false ceiling and floor to make way for more employees.

Employers of such companies surely love saving money! Even though they make crores of rupees at the end of the day, spending money after employee safety and comfort is a trivial matter to them.

Self-Teaching was a Way to Attain My Moksha


Continued from Part 1: Was your manager competent enough to guide you in building your career?

Self-Teaching was a Way to Attain My Moksha

Being a student of Eco-Stats-Maths and creative in nature I always wanted to work in a data-driven field related to advertising. Unfortunately, I never got any guru to guide me on my career path. I am a self-taught person who believed in rigorous self-teaching as a way to attain my moksha. I rigorously self-trained myself in these so that I could get a suitable job in the digital marketing field.

I took a four-year course in commercial and visual art from an Art College and then trained myself in Web designing and Multimedia. All these to make me understand the trade and how the whole thing works.

Was your manager competent enough to guide you in building your career?



I have had a few weird and unusual experiences in my life, especially, in the workplace. Those experiences compelled me to wonder about the work ethics that are followed in these places as many of such practices adversely affected my career as well as others too.

But before beginning what I endured let's read a story first:-

The Story of a gem-cutter


Once upon a time, there was a gem-cutter who was not so skilled in his trade. But he was a favorite of his master.

One day his master gave him a very precious stone to cut into a beautiful piece of jewel. The gem-cutter could not do it properly. He broke it into several pieces.

His master realized his mistakes and soon replaced him with a skilled one. The new gem-cutter collected the pieces of this broken gem and cut each one of them beautifully. They are now smaller in size but they shone brilliantly.

The mistake done by the jewel shop owner was that he relied on somebody based on favoritism and not on the skills he possessed to perform a task and this led to the disastrous result.

How micro-management can destroy an entire team in an office


Teamwork is all about the synergy between the members. Any individual no matter how adroit he is can't accomplish all by himself. A robust team will always deliver. But if the members are not allowed to work in an unrestricted environment,  the efficiency of the team as a whole will fall. When the leader or manager tries to control or take everything in his hands, the one's under him are sure to despise his methods and won't like to work there. Micromanagement is the perfect example of this shortcoming.

Divide & Rule Policy with Two Strategists for one project leads to Conflict of Interests & Demoralizing Effects

I have been working as a digital marketing executive for the last three years and have already served under two team leads who guided me well enough to make me a confident person in the realm of internet marketing. Now I have moved to another city to start a full-fledged career in the same under the guidance of a senior manager. However, after starting my new job I faced a precarious situation that compelled me to ponder over the serious issues of resource management in a detailed way.
