Superficial Political "Diversity" Fads, Not Merit, Drive This Company
Senior Employee (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 7, 2018
You may be lucky to have a good immediate supervisor as I had, but the C-suite and corporate hierarchy is full of sycophantic wet-finger-in-the-wind fad-lovers. To these people, "diversity" is not diversity of talent and idea, but only diversity in superficial characteristics that tell nothing about performance. The blaring contradiction between the false claims to reward merit and the narrow-minded push to promote by skin color, ethnic group, and gender (following the latest fads that ignore jo performance and reward employees according to politically defined worthiness) are offensive to anyone who can think logically. This strategy will eventually backfire as it should, and Mercer's clients will abandon it in droves if they are smart. Unfortunately, specialists in human resources are usually not the sharpest tools in the shed, so they may not even know what is happening if they follow Mercer's politically driven advice, much less understand why. More and more, people will realize that the policies that promote based on superficial characteristics are bound to fail. The ethical failure will eventually be obvious.
