Balm Inc.is a well-known name in the chemical industry from past 50 years. It holds a good market share and is also involved in manufacturing various chemicals which are used in various industries like Consumer goods, Pharmaceuticals, Pesticides, Leather and various other industries. Hence Balm Inc.is having 2 big plants, namely Sleek and Geek, for the manufacturing of chemicals. Sleek being the parent plant and Geek being started 15 years back.
Mohsin is a young, dynamic and committed employee in the accounts department of Geek plant. Mohsin is working with Balm Inc. from more than 6 years. He is an MBA finance graduate, with versatile knowledge in Finance. Moreover, his committed nature was never a question and known for that, almost in the entire plant. However Mohsin always looks forward for a transfer to the parent Plant Sleek as he feels he can get so much to learn there. Mohsin is applying for the same from last 3 years. Every time he use to wait eagerly for the transfer list which usually displayed on the first day of July every year.
Eventually his name was not there in the list all the time. First two times he didn’t took it seriously and waited for another chance. Subsequently when his application was rejected for the third time he was absolutely disturbed.
Finally he decided that it’s time to speak with the HR team. He took an appointment where in during the meeting Anas Head HR, Ms. Maryam head Finance both were present. Curious Mohsin directly started with the question “Why my name is not there in the transfer list”? “I want to know the reason for the rejection of my application”. Even though there is no difference in compensation and benefits he still always wanted to be there. Undoubtedly, both Anas and Maryam were shocked by the tone and reaction of Mohsin. Still they maintained the temper and tried to be cool. Maryam started “Mohsin, You are one of the best performing employee in the department. You and Eid, your own classmate, joined the organization together. Still you got many training and opportunity for various courses than him, can you deny the fact.”
