In Political Science I read many times that absolute power corrupts absolutely. But in my interaction with high commanding personnels of some companies, I would mildly negate this very fact.
In the last weeks we were assigned a project CEO OUTREACH. And we had awesome meetings with them. For two to three days we tried to contact them via contact numbers provided on their respective websites. There was none to pick the call and to fix our appointment. So we decided to visit them by self without appointment, just by taking with us the reference letter , that we were provided with. Our first choice was a well known pharmaceutical company of Pakistan Saffron Pharmas.
We met the information branch and told them that our call was not attended so we were there without informing them. We explained them our purpose of visit in brief. They felt sorry for CEO and executive director were not in the company. He directed the call to the HR Manager marketing Branch. Anyhow we were allowed to meet him . We had to wait a few minutes to meet MR. ATEEQ UR REHMAN, the HR MANAGER and OD. He said I could provide you some help in this regard. Though the CEO and EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR meeting was not possible right at that moment, yet he was there to facilitate us.
On asking about him, he started with early entry in the career and told eventually how he was at this very post. He emphasized that in order to reach the top one has to step the very low level. He focused on developing the key personal skills of fresh graduates. Along with the degree, they select the candidate who seems to be adaptive in the environment of their company.
On asking about ENVIRONMENT FRIENDLY procedures he told that being environment friendly was one of the key requirements of WHO to run a pharmaceutical company. He further added that a company had to meet this very criterion to move on and ultimately to prosper.
we had another experience with the HR Manager of A.A Spinning Mills of my area. It was also a good one. Following the formal security procedures we managed to meet MR. TARIQ MEHMOOD , HR Manager. Telling about corruption he told us that it wasn,t possible to conduct corrupt practices in private sector. Being the sole managing body of the company he told that it was necessary for the employers to remain loyal to their firm. The recruitment criterion of the company added some extra things. The new comers were given the opportunity to enter the field. The remained for there on trail or we can say short contract. They were monitored on the basis of the procedures they carried out for the situations they were provided. Finding them serious about work and having growth mindset , such fresh graduates were accepted by the company.
The whole discussion was carried out in a good environment. The thing I got via these interactions is that it changed my mind regarding that very concept that ‘’ Absolute power corrupts absolutely. It compelled me to change my mind that authority is disastrous. It might be different in your case. Share your point of view regarding it……
