About the Session
The issue of corporate professionals moonlighting has triggered a new debate, polarising opinions and raising difficult questions like, “What are the reasons for moonlighting?” Is it a legal issue, an ethical issue, a human resources issue, or a societal issue? The opinions of employers on the subject still need to be clarified. While some consider it unethical because it is cheating, others believe that when employees moonlight, the organization must discover why they moonlight and solve the issue. For this episode, Kaustubh Sonalkar, an accomplished author and change mentor, along with the founder and CEO of Vantage Circle, Partha Neog, joins leaders and HR experts to get some valuable thoughts on whether moonlighting should be allowed in organizations or not, and if yes, then how.
