    How to handle managers who are racist?

    I work in a small accounting firm. My boss has done CA and do HR consultants job side by side. We take care of account part of some of the company also help to fill their vacancy if anything occurs in their company. My boss is racist. He is hindu and prefers only hindu only. Whenever I sent other caste people, he will interview them and reject. What should I do in this case? How can I explain my boss about the impact of this racism to our company?

    You can pass a written application or forward a mail to higher authority in your company regarding this issue, this is the only solution as he is at higher post. Please contact the person above him in the company and explain them with all the situation ans information ask them to take proper and necessary step that will surely help the company.You do not have any other option other then this.

    Dear Aspirant,

    You can convince your boss by telling the fact that we should have quality employee in order to get better out put of the firm.we should not be concerned with racism because it will send very bad message about our firm among the sister concern firms & people because either state or central govt. is not concerned with it.Try to tell these things when your boss is in good mood.

    If he is not getting convinced with you,let the matter goes as your boss wants because the boss is always right.If you are not able to digest yourself there,you will have another option to search for another job.

    Thanks.

    I appreciate you for being against it, actually racism is a crime and the person practicing it can be charged for going against the norms of the constitution of India.
    If you can't open up about it to your boss you should let the higher authority of the company know about it and they will question the manager for his unmature attitude. Well if you have the guts to open up against your boss then do it, it will be more decisive. You can tell your boss in a polite manner like "do you have any idea of how much potential employees and opportunities the company is lossing on grounds of racsim?"
    If he is indifferent of your view then you can go to the extend of threatening to sue him, I'm sure he won't enjoy with such a threat.

    ==================================

    Hi friend,
    Hope you are in good health!

    See,I will suggest you to first Talk to your Boss.
    Start the conversation regarding this matter with some POSITIVE words and try to convince him that each and every individual is EQUAL before LAW.

    If he still doesn't move of his ideas,then you may go to the HR Department and share the same with them.
    Maybe,they might be able to convince the BOSS.


    Best of Luck!
    Bye

    Dear Aspirant,

    Try to convince your boss when your boss is in good mood stating that while selecting for job we should see the qualification,intelligency,body language,experience etc of the candidate 7 & not the caste & religion.It is no more related to our job.If we select the candidate on the basis of caste & religion,It will give very bad impression among the public,which is not good.The state & central govt. is also dead against it .

    if your boss is not getting convinced,let the things go ahead as your boss like,because boss is always right.If you are not in a position to digest the situation,you will have to search for another job.


    Thanks.

    Dear Friend

    As you are not a higher authority in the company so you can not do it casually ..if your really want to do this then just write a application with the concerned problem of racism in a formal way to the management of the company..

    They will certainly call you for a meeting then there you can explain about the situation that is prevailing in their company and that they should avoid that ..

    Explain them with taking example from the current scenario as it would be very helpful..

    ALL THE BEST

    Dear..

    As you have said that you have a problem against your boss then you can not do anything as he is the whole and soul of the company. You should tell him when he is in good mood that boss instead of recruiting people based on their religion we should hire them based on their quality as this will be beneficial for both the company and us. You have to tell him the positives also after hiring a good quality employee and output that can be generated out of this.

    You can also tell then other company about this matter without telling your name that you recruiter is racist and doing partiality in hiring people. This can also be a solution for the problem.

    Hope it will help you

    Cheers...!!!

    Cool Re: How to handle managers who are racist?

    In India we see our country is formed with many languages/religion/castes/creeds.If any top label employee gives stress regarding employment/opportunities toward his caste and creed then other employees will never be able to satisfy himself/herself with their excellent jobs.

    It is sure racist boss will never give his/her precious opinion favouring others'.Under this odd situation a branch/company never be able to reach at zenith point rather the branch,company will lose it's goodwill fame among the customers as well as toward employees concern,till the racist boss take's superannuation from the service.

    Thank you,

    Re: How to handle managers who are racist?

    You are right.but finally it's all decision making is of his own and his post duty.
    you should have chat with him and take solution of it from him only.He is your boss and company's owner.so you can not do anything such as strike or anything for this solution.you should have given out solution only by discussing with him.if your collige is really helpful to company ,then you should try to understand to your boss what are the benefits by him for their company and praise about your collige and give surety and take resposbility for your friend.

    If you realize surely that it's not good and really your boss do racism in company.then you can also write heart touch note to your boss about that.May be your boss realize of his mistake and your problem will solve that.
    But finally all decision making is in your boss's hand.so you should have to do your job regularly and you also help to your friend's by introducing the other company.

    Re: How to handle managers who are racist?

    Hi.. It is certainly wrong on part of your boss to practice racism and have such narrow thinking..This certainly should not be encouraged.. This is twentieth century and such shallow thinking is certainly not called for..

    You should try to persuade your boss to leave this habit of discriminating on the basis of race and caste.. You tell him the drawbacks that if he does this then how the company will not be able to have the best of employees who will certainly be of great asset to the company irrespective of their race..

    Also he will never come into the good books of other people and will certainly be disliked by majority for such behaviour..This will also harm the company as people wont do the best for him..

    Speak to him politely and make him see reason in this.. Best of luck... Thanks

    Re: How to handle managers who are racist?

    You can persuade your boss by telling the very fact that we should always have quality worker so as to urge higher out place of the firm.we should not worry with racism as a result of it'll send terribly dangerous message regarding our firm among the sister concern corporations & individuals as a result of either state or central govt. isn't involved with it.Try to tell these items once your boss is in smart mood.

    If he's not obtaining convinced with you,let the matter goes as your boss desires as a result of the boss is usually right.If you're unable to digest yourself there,you will have another choice to look for one more job.

    I appreciate you for being against it, truly racism may be a crime and also the person active it may be charged for going against the norms of the constitution of Republic of India.
    If you cannot open up regarding it to your boss you must let the upper authority of the corporate fathom it and that they can question the manager for his armature perspective. Well if you have got the heart to open up against your boss then couple, it'll be a lot of decisive. you'll tell your boss in an exceedingly polite manner like "do you have got any plan of what quantity potential workers and opportunities the corporate is loosing on grounds of racism?"
    If he's indifferent of your read then you'll visit the extend of threatening to sue him, i am positive he will not get pleasure from with such a threat.

    Hi friend,

    Try to tell your boss that every Religion is same before God.
    Then why should we discriminate among them.
    All of them have 2 eyes,2 ears,2 hands and 2 legs.
    All people are human beings.
    All are before law.

    I'm sure after listening to these words,his attitude will change!

    Bye!

    Re: How to handle managers who are racist?

    Hi friend..

    This is a wrong practice and should be stopped..I think people should widen their thinking and come out from such primitive and immoral approach..We should treat every Human Being as a Human Being and stop practicing such cheap and lowly practices like racism, castism etc..

    You should tell your boss that if he keeps on practicing racism it wont be good for him as well as the company..He should select employees on merit and not on caste or race as then he wont be able to select the best..Tell him to widen his thinking and to stop practicing such low things..Speak politely to him and make him see reason in what you are trying to tell him..Do try to convince him as it will be certainly good for your firm..

    Best of luck..God Bless

    Dear..

    Your boss is if recruiting people on the basis of race then you can organized an interview at your own stage and shortlist candidates based on their qualities and then tell your boss that you have shortlisted some candidates and they are very talented and have good qualities which are needed by us and if we hire them the it will be beneficial for us as well as the company. Tell your boss and insist him to hire once a candidate irrespective of the religion and then see whether he/she works good or not.

    I am sure he will understand the importance of quality then on-wards.


    Hope it will help you

    Cheers...!!!

    Hi friend,Racism is crime according to our constitution. We are against to it. We all equal before law. No one is superior. Unfortunately we came across people like your boss. As he is superior than you. You can't question him. So politely take the discussion and explain how your company losing valuable resources.Some people realize quickly and some take time. Ofcourse some conservative people never change. So its upto him. If you are not able to work with him better leave organization. Regards,BSR.

    Re: How to handle managers who are racist?

    Hello Friend,
    As he is a manager he may do reject you and you cant ask any reason,and if you feel he is racist then also you cant prove it.
    usually at that high level an educated person doesn't behave like this however if you feel so and you are confident about your selection you can put an mail to his higher authority for separate interview but they may ask you proper reason .
    so that time if you raise the same issue they may not believe you but if you are confident then ask them to go through the previous recruitment's by him and check how many of them are other than Hindu.
    then they will get to know and will take action against him
    Thank You.
