What do others do?

Visiting 5 different departments, I am just highlighting the conclusion of one particular conversation which took place in different occasions.

————————

Marketing:

We get the deals n the revenue, what do the others do?
We slog day and night, have stressful targets. Do they know how much of work it is to keep potential and existing clients happy. Others just sit and get the perks of the revenue we earn.

Finance:

The clients don’t pay immediately after the deal is signed off. Some don’t pay even after the work is done. Let’s not even talk about the sloppy work other departments do, adding in the penalties. How can this organisation run without money, we still keep the money flowing.


Operations:

The marketing team makes huge promises which even God cannot deliver. HR doesn’t give good salary or good team members. Haah! N the automated system is a joke!. We work day n night and in the end the big bucks goes to others. What the hell!


Human Resource:

Who runs an organisation, the people n who brings them us, even without a proper budget. And all these department managers do is put the blame on us instead of being good leaders and making effective use of the hired employees.


Information Technology (IT):

Automated system has made everyone’s work so fast and easy. Yet no appreciation. Really with so much of work done through click of the button what are others actually doing n getting so highly paid for?

——————-

This is something which I have heard time an again, not the exact words but the gist is the same. How hard one is working compared to others who are having it easy or actually not working at all or how don’t deserve the benefits they get. 

And I am like, if as per everyone no one is doing their work, then how has this Organisation been functioning for the past so many years.

So the answer for what really do others do? …. As per my conversations, everyone are doing what the pictures depicts,

“Lazying around and getting a non deserved easy life for doing nothing”… 

As time has gone by, I have realise not just in the corporate world, but life in general, don’t we question, what did he/she do?. Be it a relationship of any kind. 

The feeling that we put in more than anyone else in any relationship, be it in the form of friendships to parenting. Also the feeling that our struggles, our sufferings are much more compared to others. What others go through is nothing in comparison. Our sympathies, kindness and understanding have gone restricted to extreme suffering: Hunger, Poverty, Unemployment, Life hampering disease, Divorce n ya maybe even still “Single” at 40.

Can suffering, hardships, efforts of a person be measured?. If it’s done vis-a-vis to ours, it will change as per what we believe, but is it the right measurement?

I remember a conversation wherein the other person said I called you 10 times and you only 7. You are not putting enough efforts in this relationship. I couldn’t argue on those grounds, now could I?.

I sometimes don’t believe in “Putting myself in other persons shoes”, because even there you will find their reasons for suffering not good enough. As some say “if I was there, I would have handled the situation differently”.

I would rather conclude, just have an acceptance that everyone has their own struggles which they face in their effortful way. The measurement, technology of which is still to be discovered or if discovered, not really bug free!. An understanding of which we do not have. Those Struggles, Those Efforts which are small, looks like lazying around in our eyes are mighty big which our eyes fail to see.

Happy Acceptance!!!

    Wonderful post highlighting the truth of life in present scenario.Everyone has thier own perception of looking upto the things or matters and whatever they think they feel right and rest better is to be in our own shoe…I feel HR ka argument hua hai tabhi ye post invent hua hai.
    Have a nice day ahead with smiles 🙂

    Accepting the people and situation the way they are is wisdom indeed.

    Gossips around in office claiming worth than others are very natural behaviour.

    A good team leader values each department equally. Yes being at same level we can see the other side of vision.

    But who is on top can relate very well. Organization is like machinery where every part has to be perfect to give desired out come.

    A great leader values to each employee irrespective of thier department.

    Being in different department our roles are different in nature but our goal is same.

    One who focus on the ability of every individuals despite thier short falls always win the match.

    You wrote very good article being human resource professional.

    All the very best .

      True, yes we can’t see…. but I also think sometimes our understanding is limited to our experiences n beliefs n hence even if we see we really can’t understand, hence I feel just accept that all are doing the best they can…
      Thanks for your inputs dear 😊

    True Shefali, blame game doesn’t take anyone anywhere, but to a doomed place where ray of being wise hardly reaches.
    Every human is different and unique in his/ her own way. So they have their own ways of dealing with situations. We can’t, in fact should not expect others to behave or respond like us.

      Agreed blame game takes us no where, but people don’t admit their mistakes …. Be the corporate world or life in general admitting a mistake is a sign of weakness so the next thing is only blame…
      Understanding on the other hand is also limited to ur experiences n beliefs n hence just accept that the other person is doing the best he/she can.

      Thanks for your inputs, really appreciate it, have a lovely day 😊

    Can’t deny any of those facts. It’s just the most humane thing we do is, we always find someone to blame for. No matter what the situation is, Unless comes the day when we actually realize the truth, and we mature. 🙂

      True…the blame game is the only way we think we can survive…once the maturity then the acceptance… But I can tell you maturity is not something that is age defined some of them reach 60’s and yet don’t accept n understand…
      Thanks Abhishek for your inputs 😊
