Taking a commission for outsourcing work when working for a company

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftionline.co.za

Q: I am currently working in a company as a senior executive. I was given a task by my management to find a guy who would fix a tube well (water well). I found a guy and called him to our office to confirm the project with my management. I requested this guy for a commission after the completion of the project. Is it permissible in Islam to take commission for this kind of outsourced work?
