Rudely shaken, Vijay came home in the evening. He was not in a mood to talk to his wife. Bolted inside, he sat in his room, lit a cigarette, and brooded over his experience with a company he loved most.
Vijay, an M.Com. and an ICWA, joined the finance department of a Bangalore-based electric company (Unit 1), which boasts of an annual turnover of Rs. 400 crore. He is smart, intelligent, but conscientious. He introduced several new systems in record-keeping and was responsible for cost reduction in several areas. Being a loner, Vijay developed few friends in and outside the organisation. He also missed promotions four times though he richly deserved them.
G.M. Finance saw to it that Vijay was shifted to Unit 2 where he was posted in the purchase department, though purchase was not his cup of tea. Vijay went into it whole hog, streamlined the purchasing function and introduced new systems, particularly in vendor development. Being honest himself, Vijay ensured that nobody else made money through questionable means.
After two years in purchase department, Vijay was shifted to stores. From finance to purchase and then to stores was too much for Vijay to swallow. He burst out before the Unit Head, and unable to control his anger, Vijay put in his papers too. The unit head was aghast at this development but did nothing to console Vijay. He forwarded the papers to the V.P. Finance, Unit 1.
V.P. Finance called in Vijay, heard him for a couple of hours, advised him not to lose heart, assured him that his interests would be taken care of, and requested him to resume duties in purchase department of Unit 2: Vijay was also assured that no action would be taken on the papers he had put in.
Six months passed by. Then came the time to effect promotions. The list of promotees was announced and to his dismay, Vijay found that his name was missing. Angered, Vijay met the Unit Head, who coolly told Vijay that he could collect his dues and pack off to his house for good. It was great betrayal for Vijay.
Questions:1. Why did the management behave as it did towards Vijay?2. What went wrong with Vijay?3. If you were Vijay, what would you have done?
