Some silences or lame excuses are mandatory. 90% of the people interviewed feel, they need to be reverted back promptly with the definite reason and feedback. Infact most of these people are fresher’s or junior and mid-level whose expectations are such.
Let us see the other side of the story. If you see the hierarchy pyramid, maximum volume of employees are at junior level and if we randomly calculate with the case study of a company with 1000, even if 40% of them gives one interview in a year, there are 400 people who attend interview in a year. And ratio of candidates approaching/ interviewed to selection to joinee should be 80 out of 400 because general attrition is 8%.
In such a practical scenario, the candidates attending interviews and getting rejected only from one company would be 320 in number. Now a similar ratio for a city with not less than 500000 people (smallest number – only for consideration) attending interviews would be 4000 people getting selected.
In such a scenario can all of them be given a justification for delay rejection information?
Additionally, what if the same candidate is suitable for a future position or another position?
What if the hiring Managers get busy with the deliverable’s to the client which is a priority for any business?
What if the project for which the recruitment is happening is delayed or goes on a hold or any other project closure initiated an internal movement making the decision to hire uncertain?
Under these scenarios what should be the reply to the candidate?
Can the business scenario be explained in detail to all the candidates?
Will they be satisfied and convinced with the answers?
If the rejection is made clear, do they have the intrinsic motivation to be enthusiastic about the next interview?
Doesn’t rejection make any negative impact on mind?
Considering all the above certain silence and lame excuses are so mandatory. And this is just one instance. We come across so many situations in life.
Identity of a woman is not defined by a good son, Successful husband or contented in-laws / parents, but by her ability to bring the best out of anything and anyone that comes her way which includes herself too.
She doesn’t need an introduction, isn’t desperate for reputation. She feels contented every time she is successful in adding value to others life as well as hers.
Leaders should have an intrinsic sixth sense to believe in what can be possible and so assign the same to the team with the same positivity.
Such a belief should be 200%/100% for the reason that Leaders can’t wait for demonstrations for every targeted activity to be proven.
Because as a leader you face a lakh challenges a year and for the demonstration of each of them takes not less than a quarter. And the targets and company- both go for a toss if not for the courage to believe and chase without waiting for demonstrations.
When you serve a hungry person with food, you cannot see whether he is rich or poor or intelligent or dumb.You only satisfy someone’s hunger. And the person who is serving food shouldn’t feel less contented on serving a rich person.
Because hunger brings in equality between every class, creed, caste, race or species. A rich when hungry cannot eat gold.
What an instance of lesson made available by the Creator?
Managers have forgotten the definition of people management.They feel the equation needs to match with the team member or the people should have been performers or should have known the process thoroughly.
The fundamentals of possessing the skill of extracting the desired performance from anyone is a long forgotten story.
Grooming people by motivating them towards a successful career to chase and value addition by Managers to achieve the same – such approaches have started sounding only theoreotical.
People who have created history and are remembered with respect till today are the ones who added value to people’s life for generations to come with their conviction and infinite efforts and sacrifices.
All such people’s personal lives from history when looked back into is full of tragedies, trials and traction.
Then, What motivated them to be there?
Did they know, they would be glorified some day? NO.
Then, Why did they tread a path so lonely ?
Just because it brought them a great sense of contentment in doing good to others. Such people will always be born to motivate us from the history and to add value to our future.
