Office kleptomania. How employees steal foreign progress?

are memorable to Those who happened to reach at the Soviet power a little - malsk of the age of reason expression socialist competition . At this phrase there was some almost inaudible tautology: it was supposed that under capitalism no competition can be because at it there are one captures, absorption and other operation. And the competition which came to us from Ancient Greece as reminiscence about fine childhood of mankind - of course could be only socialist.

There passed years, the Soviet power, then " failed; Iron Curtain gaps in language barriers were formed then, the West together with all the operation became there is no place more natively, domestic managers were engaged in studying of foreign experience and began to put the knowledge into practice. And here it became clear that capitalist competition very much is even possible, and the internal competition is the most important component of corporate culture and nearly the only way to promote.

Corporate kleptomania

Is considered that all this promotes increase of motivation, the healthy competition and other entities which consultants multiply in a justification of the activity already many decades, however multiply them without any need. Meanwhile the kabalny corporate ethics, the are less than hopes for realization of creative potential of employees. Alas, examples when requirements as much as possible to realize the creative potential sound in those corporations where employees are connected on hands by senseless and absurd corporate ethics are frequent. And even in such conditions they keep a possibility of professional growth. Realization of this opportunity leads

to the fact that career becomes not high aim, but way of a survival. And to survive, it is necessary to be the first. And some employees pass to absolutely to unethical practice - begin to steal each other progress.

It is no wonder that many experts consider a similar method of education of command spirit wrong. Anna Gordeeva, director of public relations of KG Schmidt and partners speaks: In my opinion, theft does not cultivate sports bents at all, it will disorganize team, and the synergetic effect, on the contrary, is reached due to harmonious work. Combativity as it seems to me, is encouraged by recognition of efforts and encouragement of results of work of that manager who achieved them . to it the director of external relations of the " company agrees

C; Guarantor Evgeny Shamanov: Perhaps partly it cultivates enterprise qualities - in bad sense of this word, - but my opinion as head: similar cases cannot be encouraged. In - the first if results of work are redistributed in collective, then in the development plan for business of the organization it will give as a result of nothing. In - the second, it very strongly demotivates people who achieved these results, performed work, but were not noted for it, and were the innocent is punished and encouraged not privy . Couple of such experiments - it is also possible to lose all " team;.

As a rule, all links of hierarchical structure are involved in assignment of results of others work. The colleague can do it for achievement of the career purposes, the chief - to hide the incompetence. However there are exceptions. Boris Smirnov, the publisher of sports group of media - the Gameland companies, told about the experience: We speak to a thicket about the theft of ideas inherent in media business, but not results. I would zakavychit the word theft also spoke about it as about the legalized way of communication in the company where more than one employee work, and one of them is more senior on a rank. - Jure I is valid I steal results at the employees. I automatically and according to the staff list appropriate results of their work.]
