Nepotism - Practice of appointing relatives and friends in one's organization to positions for which outsiders might be better qualified.
Dearest Marriot Body
I have a question. Is nepotism allowed within your corporation? If not, then did you know that it has been happening quite frequently beneath your nose?
I have some information you may want to know, did you know that a certain Ashlyn Griffiths has hired not one but two of her siblings to work within your hotels, without experience and she, of course, was the manager of at least one of them, nut how did she pull this off? Well it's easy when they have the same mother but different fathers, therefore = different surnames. Zhane van Wyk ex-employee of Fire and Ice Melrose Arch worked (untrained, unqualified and unexperienced) and trained (without paying the appropriate fees) under you for at least a year (2013-2014), and who knows, of she had stayed maybe she'd be up for a promotion like her siblings, Jean van Wyk (either worked for or is going to work at Wanderers -but I'm sure you know-, who at first untrained, unqualified and unexperienced… as well as had been placed on shifts which awarded him higher pay) who is now about to start a new job of which he, as recently as December of 2019, got promoted to, and of course sister, Ashlyn Griffiths, who for her nepotism got to become General Manager of Marriot Transit. That's not all, isn't it a bit funny that Ashlyn recently reprimanded a staff member for hiring one of her own family members with Ashlyn's knowledge? Which begs the question is it or is it not allowed? Because not so long-ago Jean was confronted by a colleague who had too found out that Ashlyn and Zhane were his sisters which left him jumpy and quite defensively on edge.
What do you have to say? Is it fair? Is it right? Is it just? Is it allowed? Is such nepotism which results is lavish hurdle jumping, favouritism, special treatment, rewards and promotions allowed or is this just some juicy gossip story for the press and its job seeking readers to indulge in?
