It is retrospection time
on how their lives
have gone this far
Equally important for corporates
to introspect on proclaimed objectives
lines mouthed for the media
and real time intentions
practices on the ground....
Tips on handling business
on handling 'people'
spread easily across the globe
with East lapping up
everything the West does
so it's all about profits, profits at any cost
down sizing/ smart sizing/ right sizing
pink slips at the drop of a hat!
Poaching when needed
discarding the moment you don't anymore
past contributions forgotten
plight of employees be damned!
" Our people are our greatest assets"
"Customer is the king"
"We value all our stake holders"
"CSR and environment, our top priority"
Perhaps the introspection
will lead to a realization
that slogans need to be
assimilated and imbibed
not just in letter
but in spirit as well!
May the setback be the trigger
for a new beginning for corporates
with focus on genuine love
for people, society, environment
less focus on bottom line, top line
more on serving, meeting needs
and earning fair profits...
NB: CSR refers to corporate social responsibility
