    Boss recommending the name of my colleague over me for an official trip to USA

    I am working in a MNC. Recently it was announced that one of the employees would be selected to accompany the manager on an official trip to USA. I was quite confident that it would be me as I had been a very good performer throughout the last year.But surprisingly my boss has recommend the name of my colleague over me and that person did not perform even half as good as me. How to deal with such unfairness?

    It is quite unfortunate that your boss did not choose you as his partner for the official tour.But there is nothing to get disheartened by this.Always remember there are various aspects behind a particular decision of the higher authority so it is always better to know all the aspects behind a decision and then react.

    There can be various reasons behind such a decision of your boss.
    -The official tour may not be very important one.
    -It is important to stay here and handle the work for the smooth functioning of the company.
    -The boss may have found a certain trait in that person which can be handy during the official tour.
    -There can be various important upcoming tasks where you have to put in your hard work,hence boss may not want to tire you much.

    So try to be positive and also try to think that ,"Bosses are always right in the professional arena".This will give you better satisfaction in your job and help in solving various issues.Since you are disturbed with this decision,so you can implement the following suggestion.

    -Discuss with your boss regarding this issue.
    -Try to know more about the official tour.
    -Get to know the reasons for not selecting you.
    -Ask him where you should improve.
    -You can also ask if there is some similar opportunity awaiting for you in the near future.
    -Thank him and assure him of your good service in his absence.

    Hi aspirant

    This is definitely unfair on the part of your boss to select someone as half as good as you for going to the foreign trip. You should definitely raise your voice against such injustice and should not let your boss take such undue advantage of your innocence. You should definitely go and talk to your boss regarding this and tell him what you think of this decision of his. He should misuse his power in such a way and practice bias .

    Go to his office and tell him that you were expecting him to select you to accompany the manager on the official trip to USA. But you were shocked when he selceted someone who hasn't performed even half as good as you in the last year. You are really very shocked at such bias practiced by him and hope that he will look into this matter again and give you what you deserve. Otherwise you will be forced to take this matter to the highere officials which won't be good for him.

    I am sure that your boss will be ashamed of himself and will definitely change his decision in your favour. Otherwsie you should definitely complaint against him to the higher ups. Good luck

    hello sirIn my views this is quite sad moment for you as selecting a colleague over you.Generally any employee sends to trip according his/her- qualifications-experience -targeting candidate -potential growth in development of firm/company by that particular employee etc.so there is various reasons behind a particular decision of the higher authorites.So you should check always better points to know all the curriculam behind a decision.So in future or present you should check through all details of your employment's activities.All the best
