A few year ago when I was an ameba in the Army, we where told that for future promotion we should get involved in some sort of charity work. This would not only look good on our CRâs but would help when it come to the promotion board. Now I donât know what has happened since then, but the Army has gone charity mad, to the point of constantly encroaching on our personal time. Now before you all start picking on me, I donât have a problem doing any sort of charity work, I volunteer for a charity called crisis every Xmas in London. But I believe charity work should not be used as a promotion gauge. People should not be pushed into organising charity event toâ¦Whatâs the buzz word now?......âProfileâ themselves, there senior management or to make the regiment look wonderful in the public eye. I say this, as I have a new boss, just started this week. He has started delegating us to organise charity events, events so ludicrously large that we are constantly working extra time to organise them or giving up our very limited free time up. It just seems all very fake to me! You either want to help charities or you donât! You should get promoted on you job and your willingness to get of your own arse and do extra things to profile yourself. Maybe our new boss is trying to get himself promoted again?
