Filmmaker Pankaj Purohit's point of view on nepotism in Bollywood


NEPOTISM IN THE WORKPLACE

Nepotism is a form of discrimination in which family members are hired for reasons that do not necessarily have anything to do with their experience, knowledge, or skills. It creates a situation where those that are qualified for opportunities don't get them. People often imagine that working with their loved ones will be utter joy and contentment, which is the driving idea behind nepotism; apart from monopolizing the income to one's family and friends. However, history attests to the fact that all nepotism does is to create conflicts and inhibit progress.




It does create rifts in the workforce, breeds resentment, penalizes hard-working team members, and gives an unfair advantage to the undeserving and unqualified. It also causes major workplace disruptions, which can reduce overall productivity and negatively impact the unit's morale. Predominantly, nepotism becomes troublesome because of over-familiarity between family members and friends. Close relationships commonly give rise to favouritism in the workplace; or in part some suspicions of it. It becomes difficult to draw the lines when familiar individuals find themselves in a superior-subordinate relationship.
