Being a free lancer takes you to various companies and that is good. It allows you to write stories camouflaging nicely to hide the source and the reference to the company. Here is one such story….
Here is a company where there were not “enough” business development / sales manager (the actual numbers and dates are a give away so not mentioning that). A new person came at the top and said let us increase the sales force from X to 100X (no jokes). I was asked what I could do for their training…
So how does corruption happen?
As there is a hurry to recruit people are asked to get their friends / relatives / etc…and they are paid an incentive. In many cases the HR person shares the incentive.
In about 2000 cases the sales recruit had paid about 10% of his CTC to get the job. I did not see the connection – people rejected in one branch would be recruited in another branch.
Then there was corruption at the branch setting up – negotiating with the landlord, buying of equipment (at branch level), at vendor tie up (even for Tea/ coffee)..
One amazing tie up was by the HR/ admin guys with the food vendor for training assignments. Amazing how inventive a human mind could be.
Sad? I do not know..but the amount involved runs into crores…and one of the beneficiaries recently asked me…
“Subra how do I invest cash?”.
