    Boss choosing me instead of a deserving employee for promotion

    I am an employee in a private firm. Recently our company will give promotion to few employees. My boss has decided to choose for promotion instead of an employee who is more deserving than me since I am close to him. What should I do? How to deal with the situation since it is making me feel guilty?

    Hi aspirant

    It is really good to see you so concerned about your colleague and that too in today's times when everyone thinks about only themselves and have no time for anyone else.You are a very morally sound person with your values intact. If you really feel that the other person deserves the promotion more than you then you should not hesitate in mentioning the same in front of your boss. Don't worry, if you don't get the promotion this time , you can certainly earn it the next time with your hard work and dedication.

    Go and speak to your boss. Tell him that you think that one of the employees is far more deserving than you for being promoted and you request him to promote him instead of you if he has to choose the between the two of you. You hope that he will consider your request and thus give the promotion to the most deserving employee and not to you just because you are his favourite.

    I am sure that your boss will definitely listen to you and take the right decision. Also your guilt will be removed. good luck friend

    Hi,

    Why you are feeling guilty? I thing you fees shy for the promotion and not guilty....just think if the same was given to the other employee, then also you feel guilty-due to not receiving the promotion...

    Don't be very emotional...what ever is done...it is given due to the performance and after proper judgements by the senior management...

    Hence be free and feel well...do your best Work...
    Enjoy!!!!
