The above is an extract from a circular issued by cabin crew management detailing the criteria and components for cabin crew's promotion. In trying to be transparent and fair to the crew, management faces backlash from both the public and crew. They accused the management of punishing those who took medical leave by not promoting them or renewing their contracts. Some claimed they left because of this issue.
My questions then are:
- Isn't it better not to disclose too much to the crew?
- Are the crew grateful for the fairness and transparency?
Let the issue of promotion of the crew be decided at the interview without disclosing how it arrived at promoting such and such a person. After all, it is management's prerogative to hire, fire and promote whoever they want.
