Definition: Favoritism is the (perceived) situation of additional opportunities and privileges granted by a superior to one employee or specific employees over others. These benefits are bestowed upon the 'favorite' employee(s) for reasons unrelated to their actual achievements, skills or performance.
Of course, this is likely to result in disappointment among the other employees when they notice the favoritism. And this disappointment can increase even further if the other employees (i.e., the non-favorites) have to bear the burden.
