FEEDBACK FROM EMPLOYEES

INVESTIGATION OF ISSUES
• HR launched multiple investigations for various complains and issues raised
• Most cases could be summarized along following lines
• Misallocation of work – burdening employees unduly
• Lack on planning for resource allocation – employees were continuously being assigned
and reassigned to projects
• Uncertainty about key deliverables
• Lack of Information sharing PMO (senior management)
• Overlapping resource demand between Project Managers (mid tier)
• Low motivation among employees dues to perceived growth stagnancy
MAIN CAUSE OF PROBLEM
• Upon further probing following issues were discovered
• The problems initiated due to the change of Leadership
• The new Country Manager was not the right fit for the organization
• The senior management moved from holistic decision making approach to myopic
approach
• Managers were operating in silos, leading to disrupted information flow between teams
• With the external Country Head coming in, employees could not see growth for
themselves
• There seems to be a case of Competing Commitment
