Getting a raise is not an easy task, especially in the corporate world. Not only do you have to be better than your colleagues but you also have to deal with office politics, conflicts, high-pressure deals, stressful deadlines, and what-not. In the rat race to get a promotion, people get creative to impress their bosses.
In fact, every employee puts in their best efforts to remain calm during stressful meetings. From answering silly questions to justifying their opinions, employees patiently respond to every redundant query to impress their superiors. But what happens when you ultimately lose your cool?
In a video shared online, a man seems to have lost his cool during a supposed high-pressure meeting. The man can be seen verbally abusing and hitting his colleagues when asked to give justification for something.
Watch the entire video here:
The man can be heard yelling ‘Justification Chahiye’, while his confused colleague asks “Maine kiya hi kya hai?”. He keeps hitting him as other people in the room try to break the fight. While, the reason for the man’s sudden outburst is not really known, he seems to be really frustrated during the meeting.
A few people joked about the man’s angry outburst:
Will send this to my boss.
Aur justification chahiye ? :p pic.twitter.com/IQRjHSBdCw

Many people were concerned about the seriousness of the situation as physical violence should not be condoned:
I am sorry no. This isn't meme material by any stretch. This is just a horrible set of corporate culture that has always existed behind doors and people have let them be.
We cannot condone this. My heart goes out to the man who is perhaps a huge victim of circumstances & system https://t.co/4NYyovsm27

This is the sad reality of most of Indian firms. Managers treat their teams as personal fiefdom and team members as bonded labour. What makes it worse is management putting stress on figures and thereby turning blind eye to idiots like these.

This is unacceptable altho I wudnt say this is the corporate norm. There r laws in place that condemn violence of this sort. This is probably not one of those Companies. But that bng said, Indian bosses still resort to screaming & personal attacks which is equally unacceptable.

Feeling sorry for the man who was been manhandled & will also appreciate his approach while all this happened with him.

I have always asked my colleagues how I can help them to do more. The sales guys are dealing with a lot of frustrations. Competition, Traffic, Family Issues, health issues. Companies often set impossible targets and take away the benefits of the employees.

While stress is part and parcel of professional life, resorting to violence is unacceptable in any scenario. What are your thoughts on the incident? Let us know in the comments below.
