Niharika* works with a leading consulting organisation and leads a 5-member team. She is a hardworking professional who is ambitious and career-oriented. Niharika has been working in the same position for three years and has been assured a promotion by her supervisor Suresh*, due to her superlative performance.
Like other working days, Niharika reached her office well before time to find an envelope sitting in the middle of her clean table. As expected, it was her promotion letter to a pivotal role. This news did not go down well with her more-experienced peers, who had been vying for the same position and were not selected.
Niharika’s happiness was short-lived as intermittent rumours maligning her character started reaching her ears. The malicious rumours insinuated that Niharika received her promotion due to a close relationship with Suresh. Niharika had witnesses to substantiate that the rumours were being spread by her hostile colleagues.
Niharika made earnest efforts to quell the insinuations. Eventually, she talked to her supervisor, Suresh, who supported her, and both filed a sexual harassment complaint to the HR department.
Let us see what happened in Niharika and Suresh’s organization.
