The PC diversity non-sense is getting out of hand
Hi Ladies and Gentlemen...
I just have to get this off my chest.
This post is addressed to MDs/Senior EDs if there are any. Others can contribute obviously.
What the hell is going on seriously with this inclusiveness/diversity bullshit/ PC non-sense ?
I am properly tired and disgusted by all this crap, and i am not Caucasian, and could theoretically benefit from it as i am from a certain religious background.
I am starting to consider finding some very small firm/HF that doesn't have enough money to waste for this non-sense and will just let me focus on my job.
Why don't you guys in senior management stand up against this crap ?? Everyone seems to be bending over to this sh*t and productive people are sick of it. I am way too junior to do anything but senior enough to start seeing what's going on.
And the worst thing, is that this is NOT solving the underlying problem.
Few random things i've either seen myself or heard about from my friends in various companies.
I've been asked by an HR after "screening" CVs why my selection didn't contain enough "minorities".
I don't fucking know, i just picked the ones i thought were good. I am a foreigner from a different culture, i have no idea about what type of names are "white" or "black" or "purple" or anything. I barely read their f***** name.
Some kid who spent 1 year with a team, has stellar feedback from everyone, is not getting a return offer because HR said that team only had a female headcount.
They ended up hiring some stupid summer clueless girl after 3 weeks of subpar presentations and charity stuff that left after 5 months to save dolphins or whatnot. The poor dude ended up finding a position somewhere but nowhere as good as the one he could have gotten.
There is a team which is supposed to be a "Key growth" area.
But then after pretty much all the juniors left due to 1 specific bad apple, that person gets promoted, and they hire a bunch of poor kids, 2 out of which already left after 9 months for the same reasons. Then i end up overhearing a surrealistic conversation where basically someone explains that we have to "accomodate" that person because of her race/gender. Then they put another useless idiot there that threathened to sue them for supposedly being fired for the wrong reason (he was just bad). This team is now full of PC garbage hires, and are on track to miss all targets and deliver nothing, impacting several other teams.
Charity being forced on everyone (same story at various places), with not-so-subtle threats to your bonus if you don't comply with going to "supervise" some poor kids play tennis at a primary school or some other random activity.
I happen to know one of the people at the charity, and i was told that they have to actually pay extra people to "watch" the clueless bankers supervising 5y old kids. And the only reason this is done is because they receive more money from the company.
Basically this charity work is a giant farce that doesn't help anyone(it actually costs money), and is pure virtue signalling.
Male "working groups" to thing about how to empower women. Yes you heard it folks, someone floated this idea with a serious face. After the endless list of women-only events/groups where they go on wine-tasting with senior MDs in a setting that males would never be able to get before they make it to at least ED, it's not enough.
Now because these garbage hires produce lackluster work (as expected), we need to waste time thinking of what WE need to do to help them.
Are ladies not independent grown-ups that need to be treated equally ? This is the jungle. Go fight for yourself, proof your worth and you'll have an amazing careers like all the competent strong women (thank god these exist).
Inclusiveness Seminar that a friend had to go through. some tier 3 "actors" simulate some woman being harrassed by someone and a senior male trying to cover up the story and sidelining her from promotion.
Then they are asking the audience to "debate". What is there to debate ? Like is there anyone that is really a sex-offender that is going to have a light-bulb moment and suddenly stop thanks to this ?
At the corner of the room you have 4 HR taking notes.
Noone is saying anything controversial or even trying to properly debate. Everyone is just pretending to be the most virtuous in the room.
I could go on and on and on...
On this note,
happy sunday to all the ladies, men, hindous, blacks, muslims or whatever other random groups that just happen to be trying to get on with their job.
