16. (a) Bharat Public Limited Company is well known for its welfare activities and
employee oriented schemes in manufacturing industry from more than ten decade. The
company employs more than 800 workers and 150 administrative staff and 80
management level employees. The top level management views all the employees at
same level. This can be clearly understood by seeing the uniform of the company which
is same for all starting from MD to floor level workers. The company have 2 different
cafeterias at different places one near the plant for workers and another neat the
administration building. Though the place is different the amenities, infrastructure and
the food provided are of same quality. In short the company stands by the rule
Employee Equality.

The company has one registered trade union and the relationship between the union
and the management is very cordial. The company has not lost a single man day due to
strike. The company is not a pay master in that industry. The compensation policy of
that company, when compared to other similar companies, is very less still the
employees don’t have many grievances due to the other benefits provided by the
company. But the company is facing countable number of problems is supplying the
materials in recent past days. Problems like quality issues, mismatch in packing
materials (placing material A in box of material B) incorrect labeling of material, not
dispatching the material on time etc.

The management views the case as there are loop holes in the system of various
departments and hand over the responsibility to HR department to solve the issue.
When the HR manager goes through the issues he realized that the issues are not
relating to system but it relates to the employees. When investigated he come to know
that the reason behind the casual approach by employees in work is:

The company hired new employees for higher level post without considering the
potential internal candidates.

The newly hired employees are place with higher packages than that of existing
employees in the same cadre.
