What is nepotism? Nepotism is the practice among those with power or influence of favoring relatives, friends, or associates, especially by giving them jobs. Nepotism goes all over the world and happens to not just people, but it happens to animals too.Nepotism in the workplace harms employee morale, engagement, and productivity. Showing employees performance is not the deciding factor when it comes to hiring, promotions, or day-to-day practices is a sure-way fire of destroying their motivation for the job. Nepotism can create an unfair advantage for those who have family connections, and it can limit opportunities for those who are qualified but lack those connections. It’s important to create a level playing field and evaluate people based on their qualifications and skills, not just their family connections. I can also have negative effects on morale, as it can create resentment among employees who feel that they are being overlooked for promotions and other opportunities because of their lack of family connections. This can lead to a toxic work environment, where people feel undervalued and unappreciated. Some people may argue that nepotism can be a positive thing, as it can create a sense of loyalty and trust among family members. Additionally, family members may have a deeper understanding of the company culture and values which can make them better suited for certain positions. Overall I think it is important to set boundaries and let people prove that they have what it takes without family connections.
