Personal liking can be a very important factor in promotion of staff.. this biasness cannot be overlooked or ignored. The most perfect decisions, to my experience, are also affected by this problem…
How to overcome this problem? I think all the data and the performance reports of an employee should be sent to a third party to judge the person and select those people who are just on merit… however, this can also cause some problems as the third person doesn’t know the behavior and other personal qualities of the person.
Biasness can also be removed when the decision for promotion is being reviewed by many other people working around the employee. All the data should be reviewed and analyzed in order to make a robust decision.
