Answer to Question 1
Most companies today are active on social media because most people rely on them for getting information about the company, what the employees working their think and share about the company, whether the company involves themselves in political and social issues, and how satisfied and motivated the employees are. In this scenario, the employee himself is a financial advisor of the company. He is in a situation where he needs help fulfilling his essential requirement in social media. I think this post would create a negative impression about the company to other individuals who follows him. His post on social media would also generate a dilemma for the individuals seeking a career in this company. Additionally, this is a financial planning office, and the financial advisor himself needs such a small amount where he had to ask on social media. This would also create a negative impression on its current and future clients. Also, this is an indication of a poor workplace environment which leads to an unhappy employee. For an organization to run smoothly, there needs to be a healthy relationship between the individual, group, and organization.
Instead of punishing the employee, the organization should look for a solution to better communicate with the employee on what caused this behavior and how the organization can help him feel motivated, valued, and rewarded. This action taken by the organization can impact positively in the future. If a similar situation arises in the future, the employee should feel comfortable seeking help from the organization instead of seeking help publicly.
