NEWGEN is a software company in northern CA., started in 1999. Since inception, Newgen has seen positive growth in the business and has hired aggressively. Abdul and Hahn have worked well together until Abdul decided to promote Amie Lee as a supervisor for the team. Abdul has been thinking about this move for some time now, he appreciates the excellent customer service skills that Ms. Lee possesses and is aware that both the customers and Newgen’s team are very happy with Ms.Lee’s outstanding customer service skills. On April 3, 2009 Abdul announced to his team that Ms. Lee will now be the department supervisor, a welcome relief that will give him more time to concentrate on new product development. On April 7, Hahn Chen came to Abdul and asked for a transfer. He told Abdul that he cannot work under a “non-technical supervisor” and that Ms. Lee did not have the skills to help him with his projects. He also informed Abdul that he would prefer to stay as a direct report to him, but does not wish to stay under Ms. Lee. On the same day Abdul asked Ms. Lee and Hahn to meet with him. At the meeting Hahn did not make eye contact with Ms. Lee, but repeated to Abdul that he wants a transfer, and that he does not want to work for Ms. Lee because she is not a technical expert. Ms. Lee left the room in tears, confused at the events.
