When PTV came into existence in 1964, there was a staff of 30 employees, which has now risen to more than 6000 persons at all Units of the Corporation. The employees of PTV are divided into 09 groups and every group has a separate pay scale. There is a regular channel of promotion for almost every post with the exception of a very few.


PTV, the national broadcasting corporation had been in dire straits and continuously declining for many years. When the current management took over the reins, the organization was at the verge of bankruptcy. Losses had been incurred, income from all spheres was restricted, viewership had reduced and the overall morale of the institution was in shambles.

The energy, innovation and vitality exhibited by the new leaders has, within a short span of one year, transformed PTV into a profitable organization with a leap of PRs. 287 million from PRs. 1431 million to PRs. 1718 in advertising income; from PRs. 148 million net operating loss to PRs. 38 million net operating profit.

The promotion of programmes has been totally been revamped in lieu of improved repackaging and tailor made programming along with energized marketing strategy. PTVs endeavor for initiative has surfaced with a number of milestones of particular significance. Deserving special mention here are the daily programs of Tilawat & Tarjuma of the Holy Quran; programmes highlighting the cause of Kashmir;

PTV World, a new satellite channel was launched in the face of tough international competition. The objective of providing a homely atmosphere to family viewers has been well achieved. The audience driven programmes have given PTV a new look and dramatically changed the views about PTV. PTV has surged ahead of its competitors and as such PTV-2 has been turned into a viable project. Generation of more than Rs 56 million within a span of five months of the implementation of the new idea speaks of this unparalleled achievement.

Technical improvement of PTV is evident from the change in screen presentation. The public has greatly appreciated this cosmetic transformation not only in programmes but


also in News & Current Affairs. Recent usage of Computer Technology to facilitate the generation of virtual sets is a significant landmark in the history of PTV.

On the other hand active participatory programmes have supplemented the authenticity of Current Affairs programmes and generated a lot of public interest. Live Open Forum; PTV has taken a lead over its contemporaries by introducing Audio-Text and Tele-text services in the region. The live cricket and hockey quizzes and the recently held PTV Awards are few examples of mass public participation through Audio text. Availability of on-line Flight Information, live surge and fall of stock exchanges, news updates etc.

Every new idea brings with it the opening of whole new vistas of creativity. Prime TV is yet another venture in this regard, which resulted in the generation of additional income. Mideast Time, an extension of PTV World, targets Pakistani expatriates in the Middle East at a time when people need to relax with family entertainment.

PTV has a lot to be proud of. It lists of accomplishment is ever increasing and every achievement is a milestone in itself, like: Salaat-o-Tarawih direct from Makkah during Ramadan Launching of PTVs Web site on Internet Special live interviews from Dubai, Saudi Arabia & New York Taji Mori at 12,500ft, one of the world's highest transmitters.

There are 9 boards of directors working under one chairman of board. These boards of directors are rule and decision making authority of PTV policies and programs. They make amendments in the policies and introduce new rules. Through PTV SERVICE RULE, HR RECRUITMENTS ARE DONE. They do not have a proper HR department but they have personnels who do the HR duties like recruitments, selections, trainings, motivations, career developments etc. The selection is done strictly on merit. Only the first divisionary are hired. The recruitment is done by the board, it includes the interviews, written tests and then when the selection is done the hired person is given training related to his specific field.


There are six (6) levels of inductions. The MANAGEING DIRECTOR AND THE OTHER BOARD OF DIRECTOR takes tests and interviews of the currently working employees of PTV and decides for their promotion and who should be inducted at which place. 1-3 levels of inductions are done at local level and 4-6 levels of inductions are done at national level. Before doing the promotions and inductions the age limit and qualifications needed for the job and promotions gets mentioned. Only when the vacancy is not fulfilled internally it is fulfilled externally. 4and above groups are shortlisted by tests. If any vacancy of PTV is empty, the selection for this empty vacancy is done internally and if the requirements are not fulfilled through selection process then it is advertised for the outsiders. The selection for the internal employees is done through tests, interviews. 50% are the passing marks for the selection tests. 4 and above groups


are short listed through tests. But promotions in PTV are done on the basis of seniority not on the basis of qualifications, performance and training.


PTV hires people at two levels one through regular recruitment procedure for appointments covered under PTV regulations and employees are protected with regular increase in salary, provident fund and pension. The other is recruitment on contract which is the practice for the last ten years. A number of people have been hired on technical, professional and general administrative positions. These people are hired on lump salaries without any additional perks and usual benefits. The entry levels in PTV are highly overlapping and duplicating. It was observed that people from grade 1 to 8 are picked from the open market on contractual positions for two to three years. These promotions are based on favoritism and political pressures. So therefore, under these arrangements the concept of succession planning does not exist theoretically, however to meet the pressing requirements at various levels the people are hired on contract. PTV news and current affairs is the glaring example of such tendency.


There is no define procedure for postings on various jobs within the organization but for engineering staff which is in high number the postings are done at Headquarter level in Islamabad. The director engineering is the authority who takes the decisions in consultation with Director Administration and Personnel Affairs (DAPA). Internal vacancy notifications are not permissible in PTV. All positions in PTV have to be filled through open advertisements

POLITIICAL INFLUENCE The biggest weakness of Pakistan TV network is political influences. Most of the time PTV could not telecast the negative facts about the government because of the political influence and this is the main reason that PTV fails to become the number one channel in Pakistan.

QUALITY OF EQUIPMENT The equipment which is used in the programs and the machines to telecast the programs are not technologically up to date low quality of cameras, studios and processing units are still in use. Still far away in technological advancement

BAN ON UNIONS Union plays a very vital role in the development of any organization. As far as PTV is concerned union is banned from 1974, which is not a good sign for the development of organization.

SLOW PROMOTION PLICY The promotion policy in PTV is too much slow which creates discouragement among the employees.

DELAY IN PAYMENTS There is delay in payment to actors and the staff has to complete all the documentations to get their TA.DA. Which demotivate the employees and the actors to work here and they switch to other private channels.

CENTRALIZATION The authority is centralized in PTV. Most of the producers are not fully authorized about a particular programme so it caused of demotivation for producers and workers and their work become less effective.


HUMAN RESOURCE DEPARTMENT PTV has no human resource department which very main cause of PTVs inefficiency and ineffectiveness. PTV has admin and personnel department which is not performing the function of selection and recruitment very effectively.

LAKE OF MARIT SELECTION The selection process of the org is not on merit due to the political interference and that is the reason because of which competent persons cannot be selected.

SLOW GROWTH PTV is not introducing new products and new saying schemes. Organization should boost the product development and increase the range of facilities offered for customers

NEW CHANNELS Pakistan TV Network has huge opportunity of opening new channels globally to promote the culture of Pakistan and to motivate the tourists to visit Pakistans beautiful places. And the following channels to be more affective channel in Pakistan. Pakistan TV Entertainment Pakistan TV World NEWS Pakistan TV Quran Pakistan TV Wild life


TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCEMENT Government is taking very bold steps to promote IT in Pakistan. PTV has an opportunity to improve in technology.

PTV is surrounded by many competitors. It has opportunity to do aggressive marketing to increase its business. Add quality programs with slight change in culture

TURNOVER OF EMPLOYEES Because of the ineffective management and centralization of authority Quality producers, directors, writers and actors are switching towards the private channels

COMPETITORS PTV has many competitors, which are continuously increasing their products and marketing aggressively. It can be the source that customers of PTV shift to the competitors.

MARKET SHARE All the other leading channels and quality cable operators who have taken the market share can be problematic for PTV to operate and survive in the competitive market of IT and communication.

LOW INVESTMENT RATE The economic and political conditions of Pakistan are not good the investment rate is very low so this is a major threat for all channels of Pakistan television.


INEXPERIENCE STAFF The number of experienced and trained staff is very low. Majority of the staff working in the center is quite young and inexperienced.




The main problem area of PTV is that the organization has no Human Resource Department. A large organization like PTV with a workforce of 6000 employees currently working in it has some senior executive of government who are responsible to do HR related jobs. PTV has an increased turnover rate, their employees, anchors, news casters, directors left PTV because of less promotions, less pay raises. Pay raises are not as much to retain employees on their res PTV is working on a typical formula which every government organization uses, less promotion and promotion on the basis of seniority, no special incentives, not much increase in pay scales. This problem persists because of lack of HR department. According to PTVs manager of training of delegation We Believe On Less Cost and Maximum Output But it is noticed that PTV has a funding in millions and billions but its output, its quality of channels, dramas and news is very bad. And it needs to be improved. They dont accept their flaws which is the main reason of their downfall.


The major key problem of PTV is that it lacks HR department which is affecting the overall output and performance of the organization. To make the organization work more efficiently and effectively a plan should be developed which identifies that how the gaps can be filled by the implementation of policies and procedures discussed below, to retain the employees and decrease the high turnover rate by redesigning the management styles.



Introduction of Human Resource Department mentoring hiring of professionals restructuring of middle management on the job training optimization of human skills balance and fair distribution of staff transparent initial hiring on the job training


Human resource department acts as a bridge between the organization and the employees, to uphold the guidelines and laws as well as the practices. Growth of an organization depends upon the HR department, which is responsible for hiring, downsizing, recruitment, implementation of policies, compensation, increments, promotions, salary packages. The main purpose of the HR department is to put the right person on the right job. To achieve organizational goals PTV needs a talented HR department. Besides hiring the right people to manage and perform specific jobs, HR managers have to build up commitment and loyalty among the workforce by keeping them up to date about company plans, and laying out the implications for job security and working conditions. In PTV DAPA is operating as HR personnels but there is no proper HR department for the regulation of the policies and producer. Boards of directors are responsible for recruitment and selection which is actually the responsibility of an HR manager.


There are many perspectives on the definition of mentoring, especially since the relatively recent popularity of personal and professional coaching. mentoring have been described as the activities conducted by a person (the mentor) for another person (the mentee) in order to help that other person to do a job more effectively and/or to progress in their career. The mentor was probably someone who had "been there, done that" before. A mentor might use a variety of approaches, e.g., coaching, training, discussion, counseling. In PTV mentoring is not done properly by the senior managers which are a very important step in career development. The employees need to get trained and counseled by their senior managers so that the junior employees get to learn a lot and know their mentor. Interactive environment should be provided which lets the employees discuss with their mentor with great ease. The free time of employees should be invested with each other where they can sit with their mentor and get the quality time.


There is a bureaucratic structure in the organization and the middle management of PTV is unskilled and has an unprofessional attitude towards their subordinates and it affects their performance. There is a lot of government pressure within the organization which should be tackled by restructuring and hiring skilled employees, who are well aware of their respective jobs, so that the organization can work in a proper manner. The restructuring should be done especially in technical and professional areas of middle management i.e. engineering, programming and news.


7.2.6. HIRING
These two kinds of hiring is needed in the organization i) Professional hiring PTV should hire professionals on competitive basis with market based remuneration. By doing so the professionals can make the organization compete and flourish in an environment of global media expansion, technical sophistication and plurality of programming by competitors and resisting the government pressures on programming and coverage. ii) Transparent initial hiring Initial hiring through transparent manner which should be supervised by the High Powered Committee headed by sectary culture and represented by Ministry of Finance, ministry of information, independent mangers and PTV itself.


On the job training is lacking in PTV. If an employee is selected he is not given a proper training, his senior managers of his department do his training but this training has not a proper system. So there is a need of on the job training for the employees especially the news department.


Employees who are skilled and working within the organization should get more serious about their jobs; give more input to get an output in the form of quality and productivity for the organization. There is a lack of quality which is clearly seen in the programs. There is a billion of funding provided by the government which is not being utilized by the organization because of their unskilled workforce. Balance and fair distribution of staff to various sub departments there should be equal number of staff in each department. Each department must have a manger to supervise


the subordinates so that the work load is divided among them equally which will improve the overall work efficiency.



Chapter 8

There are some recommendations that the career plan for the organization which can help the organization in achieving the organization goals. The information gathered from most of the sources inside and outside PTV suggests the following points about the organization (PTV).

Organization is mismanaged and loose in structuring to a large extent. The management of workforce for a particular programme to be telecasted live is not through proper coordination among the senior and junior staff.


Working conditions must be improved for the employees. PTV will definitely get more benefits after some expenditure on the working conditions as it improves efficiency and productivity of the employees.


Along with the technical staff, the training must also be given to the management staff also so they can also compete with current situation. Present training program for the technical staff is need to be improved, as this program instead of improving the efficiency of employees is merely a burden for the PTV in the form of heavy T.A. , D.A. and cost.


There is also a need of proper recruitment and selection program. New young talent should be introduced to inject the new ideas. Deterioration in efficiency is mostly due to promotion without merit. So promotions must be awarded on merit.



Special attention should be given to the behavior of the employees towards their work, as electronic media is in the age of tough competition and customers the most important person for any business organization. To motivate the employees of PTV, regular bonuses and incentives should be given to them.


Some of the shares of PTV should be privatized because PTV is fully owned by government therefore PTV faces a lot of political influence by the politicians of the sitting government. If shares of PTV are privatized then the political influence can be ignored positively.


Since the man power is not hired under a prescribed well defined procedure and policies and entries are made possible at various levels of hierarchy, The PTV was not in a position to design a capacity building and training programme for its employees. It was concluding that the causes of PTVs faulty structure are internal and external both which are leading the organization to a disaster and making it less competitive in media market.

There must be a friendly environment among all the employees as it enhances the trust and sincerity. And they work in a comfort way and this is possible when the environment is friendly.


In the time of fast technological advancement PTV is still using the old equipment for the recording of programmes, while the competitors are using the latest technologies which make them leaders of the electronic media market.
