3. Jayram’s Dilemma
Jayram, GM (Sales) is finding it difficult to decide whom to choose for the position of sales executive in the Agro Business Division (ABD) of the steel company out of the following three candidates. Jayram recently interviewed Varsha who happens to be a close relative of Jayram. She has worked 4 years in the Cosmetics Sales Division of a retail outlet. Only concern from Jayram’s side is that Varsha is extremely ambitious and she can come out as too sophisticated and arrogant for the dealers of ABD.
Ritika is working in the AB division as a non-managerial staff since last 7 years. She is now 26 years old. She entered into the company when she was just 19 years through a policy of extending employment to employees’ wards. She pursued her study along with her job and completed both her graduation and MBA. Last year she got double increment as an acknowledgement towards her good work for the division. Jayram’s concern about Ritika is that she might be too shy for the job which requires aggressive selling attitude.
