Unfamiliar Territory

I have never doubted that democracy in Bhutan would be a huge success. That’s because most of our politicians are products of Bhutanese Bureaucracy, which in turn has been a breeding ground for dangerous politics for quite a few decades. Most cronies and narcissists climbed up the ladder and they continue to do so.
Interestingly, politics inside corporations may be one of the reasons why many corporations in Bhutan failed to do well. Unlike civil service, corporations are mandated to develop their own business strategies and ways to implement them. Instead of focusing on the business strategies, corporations are messed up with confused sense of vision and mission. In fact, there are no dominant business strategies that are being followed.
As a silent observer, it is interesting to note that even the organization I work for has rumbled into unfamiliar politics. It was instituted to look after the welfare of people during misfortunes and old age. It looks like it will never see its own prime age and let alone it old age or the old age of the people who are contributing now. For the sake of future retirees, there is a need for a business leader who sees, smells, thinks and envisions beyond few staff. It is important to correct a system before it finally succumbs to desease. There is a need for the people in the board to chart out roads.
If nothing is done,at least within few years from now,God save the future retirees.

The question concerns ethics in business and moral responsibility as Chief Executive Officer of one of the oldest companies in Bhutan.    I bring forth this question because I could not keep quiet and it concerns ethical issues which touches the depth of human nature.  As a writer, I have always sought for refuge in my conscience. After having tolerated the swamp for very long time, I thought there are million reasons to ponder upon this case. Mr. Champay joined the service of FCB in March 1975 after completing class IX from Tashigang Central School. On August 31st, 2012, he reached superannuation age of 58 years and completed 37 years of service. As per the FCBL S
