Taking credit for someone else’s work is a social evil of present society and it specially exists among the employees of different companies and organizations. This can be understood by a simple example that the present government is getting the full credit of atomic blasts that were done in 1998 in Baluchistan while the reality is that it was long term process that was started in 1974 and carried through the years and years to give a result in 1998. I have given this example, just to clarify the concept with the present day example.
Taking Credit for Someone Else’s Work in Offices
When we consider this concept among organizations, it also exists there. An employ on higher post shows a project proposal to his boss that he himself prepared this plan while it was plan of some low level employee. In this way, the whole credits go to that employ and the low level employ will remain in the same position regardless of the hard work that he has done for doing the task.
Content plagiarism is another such type of example that certainly exists in assignment preparations. Only a single person writes an assignment and his credit is used by many of the students.
Recently, a news was broken out that the persons who have passed PHD in different subjects have copied the existing work in their thesis and got the degree in this way.
All of us should avoid such type of behaviors and should remain positive.
