Below is my essay..Please help review that..
In 2010 I was part of a 10 member team of which 3 people had less than one year of experience. On every diwali the client awards one team for best performance. That year our team won that award, where every team member was provided with a certificate and Rs 5000. Shockingly the three juniors in the team was devoid of the honors.
The juniors were an integral part of the team and had been the most honest and hardworkers in the short span of time they had worked. The success was a team effort and it is always important to boost the morale of youngsters during their early professional life. To my dismay none of the senior teammates took up this issue with the Project Manager and only sympathized with the juniors.
Business ethics was one of the courses that I was taught during my initial training in xxxx.I asked the team's Project Manager to let us know why such treatment was meted out to the juniors. The manager downplayed the issue stating that they were too young to have made any substantial contribution to the team. Failing to convince him, I decided to escalate the matter to our Delivery manager. I told him that such discrimination on the basis of age doesn't seem to be right. My courage inspired my senor teammates to back me this time. The delivery Manager did acknowledge that the discrimination was unethical. Eventually the juniors got what was rightfully theirs.
The turn of the events taught me a bit about handling difficult and ethical problems in office. My efforts helped me garner a lot of respect among my team members. My steps vindicated my belief that conviction on one's principles is important.
