At work place like in sports, if the Human Resources Dept. acts like umpires on the football field to catch the perpetuaters of foul play, the companies can retain talented staff.

Pass Interference 

Subba Rao 

“Pass interference, fifteen yard penalty, first down,” shouted 

the umpire stretching his hands forward with both palms wide open. Some 

fans jeered and others cheered loudly. 

In sports, umpires on the field and in the booth upstairs watch 

every player on the field for infractions and penalize accordingly. 

Recalls and further review options were available for the team coaches 

to pursue further if they were not happy with on-field umpire 

decisions.  In sports, unfair practices seldom go unpunished, sooner or 

later, it will catch up like steroid usage by athletes that come to 

haunt the perpetuators decades after their use. 

At work place, the Human Resources department has a duty to 

monitor the behavior of the every member of staff.  But in reality, the 

HR is a joke at most work places when it comes to self monitoring and 

compliance. Juggernaut work experience with two vice presidents at a 

company attests lack of a system to evaluate the so called decisions of 

supervisory staff. The two vice-presidents in question were self- 

serving in their decision to rail-road the career of their 

subordinates. If a system were to be in place at work places as in 

sports to monitor the decisions of supervisory staff, incompetent staff 

would be weeded out and workers with potential would get opportunities. 

The two VPs should have been caught and reprimanded for pass 

interference, a sports analogy.  Similarly, the gross personal 

misconduct at work by some was comparable to personal foul and 

unnecessary roughness on a player. These people were country bumpkins 

unworthy of working at corporate office or any place for that matter 

but the system allowed these people to continue to work even now. 

While watching football, every time an umpire charges penalty for pass 

interference or personal foul for unfair play, it reminds Juggernaut of 

people at his former work place that perpetuated pass-interference and 

got away without it.
