India is the second largest cement producer in the world next only to china. Despite the fact that the Indian economy continues to reel under the recessionary environments the Domestic cement industry emerged as an exception and registered a growth rate of 11 % in Production over the previous year. There are more than 130 large plants owned by 52 companies In. 2005-2006 the total installed capacity for cement manufacture stood 160.24 million tones. The capacity utilization of 88 %, the highest ever as compared to 83 % in the previous year. The industry recorded a production of 141.81 million tones. The share of blended cement has been increasing to 61 % from 56 %. As companies shifting their emphasis from OPC to blended cement. The cement industry on the whole, recorded a CARG of 10 % over the last two decades. The export during the year 2005-2006 is increased at 6.01 million tones against 4-07 million tones in the 2004-2005. However export of clinker went down to 3.18 million tones against 5.99 million tones.

OPPORTUNITES & THREATS : The cement industry in India is poised to grow satisfactorily as demand is anticipated due to in going “BHARAT NIRMAN" plan I other ambitious targets projected by Government; planning for timely completion of road project and focus on agriculture. The industry continues to be plagued by very high taxes both at the Central and state level, this is a major worry for the cement industry.


Outlook : The long term outlook for the cement industry is encouraging. The demand for cement from the government and private sector would continue to increase in coming year, because of substantial additional plan outlay provided by the central government in the infrastructure development and housing sector. The cement production has been increasing in the recent years with increased emphasis on production of blended cement.

Risk & Concerns: The truck loading restrictions imposed by state governments is a matter of concern as it increases overall cost to the industry. High level of taxed and duties imposed by Central as well as State Government and higher prices of fuels and freight are major concerns of the Industry.

Cement industry is a core sector and forms the backbone of the infrastructure development of the country. Cement manufacturing began is India in 1911 the 1st plant had a capacity of 200 tones per day. The industry was delicensed and uncontrolled in 1989. The Investment cost per ton installed capacity in 2002 for a cement plants is Rs. 4500 /- per ton as compared to Rs. 600/- per ton in late 70's India is one the best quality cement manufacturer's of the world . It stands in the top 5 cement producing nations of the world. 5

There are many big concerns producing cement in India.

Quality Policy-



Progressive Management
Shree Cement supplemented its attractively low capital investment per tonne with one of the lowest manufacturing costs in the Indian cement industry. Starting with 0.6 million tons per annum of cement in 1985, the capacity was upgraded to 0.76 million tons in 1993. Second plant with installed capacity of 1.24 million tons per annum was commissioned in 1997, in record time of 18 months, raising total capacity to 2.0 MTPA. Even during recession in the industry, it was possible for it to enhance capacity further to 2.6 MTPA due to its strategic location and better brand image and is the largest single location plant in North India. The companys installed capacity accounted for 15 percent of Rajasthans total capacity in 2002-03 and 2.5 percent of Indians production in 2002-03. Cement production increased 3.42% from 2.747 million tons in 2002-03 to 2.841 million tonnes in 2003-04.


At the end of year 2008, Shree Cement Limited has entered the big league with current overall production capacity of 9.1 million tons. Shree Cement has evolved into one of Indias top ten cement makers with 18% market share in North India. Believing in the theory of self-sufficiency, Shree Cement Limited has installed its own Captive Power Plants at Beawar & Ras with a combined capacity of 119.50 MW. Once again, the low cost was the result of scores of initiatives across all levels within the company. Some resulting in small savings. Some in big. But each primarily driven by the belief that what was being done could be done better. Success Driver PEOPLE AS PROGRESS DRIVERS Shree believes that what is present in the minds of people is more valuable than the assets on the shop floor. All the company’s initiatives are directed to leverage the value of this growing asset. TEAMWORK Shree leverages effective team working to generate a sustainable improvement. LEADERS AT EVERY LEVEL Shree believes in creating leaders -not just at the organizational apex but at Every level, resulting in a strong sense of emotional ownership. CULTURE OF INNOVATION Shree believes that what is good can be made better -across the organization.

CUSTOMER FOCUS Shree is committed to deliver a superior quality of cement at attractively affordable prices.


SHAREHOLDER VALUE Shree is focused on the enhancement of value through a number of strategic and business initiatives that generate larger and a better quality of earnings. COMMUNITY AND ENVIRONMENT Shree’s community concern extends from direct assistance to safe and dependable operations for its members and the environment. Marketing Over the last few years, there has been a remarkable shift at Shree: from a Production-centric to a customer-obsessed organisation. • Challenges • Marketing presence • Markets • Market States


Markets classification Markets Primary Secondary Tertiary States Rajasthan Delhi, Punjab, JK, Haryana, Western U.P. and Uttaranchal Gujarat, M.P. and Central U.P.

Challenges Due to the nature of the product - bulky, low priced - it became increasingly difficult to sell the product across a large territory. Besides, higher realisations in distant territories did not mean that the gain would accrue to the company since the incremental freight would neutralise the price advantage. As a result, it became important to arrive at a median between realisations and distribution costs and earn a comfortable margin. Marketing presence Over the last three years, Shree considerably strengthened its marketing presence. Since the company is based in Rajasthan, the state is the company’s principal market. Rajasthan is India’s largest cement producing state and Shree’s is the largest single location plant in northern India. The company’s northern-most positioning within Rajasthan makes it the closest among all Rajasthan manufacturers to Delhi, Haryana and some parts of Punjab, a significant cost edge. The company enjoys a market share of about 11 per cent in north India. MARKETS


Each cement manufacturer has a primary and secondary market. The former is one, which is the closest to the production centre where it fetches the best realisations while the latter is usually at a distance where realisations are lower.

In an industry where consumer loyalties change every rupee, Shree’s biggest achievement was that it built an emotional bond with its stakeholders. This transpired as a result of a number of initiatives:

The company produced a 53 grade product at a 43 grade price - better quality at a lower price. The company positioned its brands around longer life (durability), emphasising product longevity. The company innovated the launch of corrosion resistant grade like Red Oxide, winning innovations in a staid industry. Shree put its products deeper within most territories. Besides, it invested in logistics to reach retail shelves faster. As a result, Shree’s products moved quicker off retail shelves: every 0.65 seconds in 2001-02 and every 0.58 seconds in 2002-03. As the company’s primary customers - dealers - accelerated the rotation of their working capital, they maximised their return on capital, ensuring brand loyalty.

Shree accelerated footholds through a stronger Rs 3 cr advertising campaign for its Red Oxide brand in the regional print and electronic medium in 2002-03. Shree educated its principal users - the masons and architects.

Even though low priced alternatives were available, Shree’s 53 grade sold more than the other grades.

The trade segment accounted for 21,421 tonnes and the non-trade segment accounted for 23,128 tonnes per month. To create a distinction in the market, the launch of Red Oxide cement met with success. Trade sales increased by 15 per cent during the year. blended grade cement registered strong growth of 58 per cent during the year.

The company has five business centres and registered a 60 per cent growth in the retail network. Apart from growing its network, the company has taken strong steps to strengthen customer service. It has created greater awareness with customers about the benefits of using Red Oxide cement over other cement grades. The timely disposal of customer problems is building a stronger service brand and raising the visibility of Shree’s products in the marketplace. Competition The demand in the Delhi market grew by one per cent during the year. This market is witnessing a higher growth in the blended segment. The key players in this market are Shree, Vikram, JK, Ambuja and Lakshmi cement. Dealer performance The focus on stronger dealer performance has helped generate higher sales. Additionally, the company focused strongly on its outstanding position in the market. This has led to a sharp fall in outstandings from Rs 11.05 cr on 31 March 2002 to Rs 8.96 cr on 31 March 2003. Currently the outstandings are under control and are collected within 3-5 days.


Outlook The Company is targeting higher sales through several initiatives including strengthening its dealer network. Moreover, Shree is focused on converting its OPC sales into Red Oxide cement. Additionally, a focus on superior logistics and lower transportation costs will help improve margins.

Punjab Highlights, 2002-3
• • • • •

Appointment of new and high potential stockiests A greater concentration towards the trade segment Enhanced the packaging and branding of the products Focused on improved advertisement and promotional activities The successful launch of Red Oxide cement

Performance The Company sold 3.68 lack tones in 2002-03 (2.82 lack tones in 2001-02 -nine months) in Punjab (15 per cent of the company’s sales) accounting for a seven per cent share in the state.

The combination of more dealers and business centres translated to higher sales, especially in the trade segment. The focus on providing prompt service and paying customer visits to learn about their concerns and their quick redressal has helped enhance business opportunities.


Competition Key competition came from companies like Grasim and Ambuja. Grasim established a grinding unit that led to higher cement output resulting in a drop in prices. Shree was able to maintain its prices and its focus on Red Oxide cement opened greater revenue opportunities. Moreover, the focus on enhancing volumes helped Shree generate greater sales in its chosen markets. Higher volumes and stable prices resulted in greater profits.

Dealer performance The Company strengthened its customer relations both in the trade and non-trade segment. This combined with the delivery of superior product and service needs helped enhance the visibility of the Shree brand. This service also helped improve the outstanding position and monitor and recover old debts. Sundry debtor declined to seven days in the trade segment and 12 days in the institutional segment.

Outlook Shree is focused in increasing the sales in both the trade and non-trade segment. Moreover, the focus on strengthening the dealer network is also likely to spur volumes. The company is also planning to appoint another 100 quality stockiests to penetrate the markets better. Moreover, the focus on converting a higher percentage of OPC sales to Red Oxide will help enhance margins.

• Jo soche woh pave Shree has invested wisely in its people assets over the last few years to sustain a culture of excellence through the following initiatives: • • The company incentives ownership through the ‘Jo soche woh paave’ scheme. The company trained and multi-skilled so that members could deepen and extend their

competencies across the house keeping, maintenance, risk management, team building and environment, health and safety functions.Jo soche woh paave also deals with some really simple solutions. Like the inevitable 8.30 am traffic jam of employee vehicles - 60 cars and 300 two-wheelers - at the factory gate. This posed an accident risk. I suggested that another gate be opened for car entry only. This suggestion was accepted and the result is a safer factory and a bigger time saving today." - Girish Singhal (Dy. Manager, Taxation)

• Creating leaders at every level Shree Cement emphasises that creating leaders not just at the organisational apex but at every level results in strong sense of emotional ownership. Thus the employees are delegated with responsibility and authority to adopt one Electric motor and related equipment for keeping watch and care resulting in energy conservation, thus generating multiple CEO's in the Energy Management System. • Recognition and reward scheme The management believes in the self-actualization of its employees by injecting the concept of Human resource Development in all its policies and strategies. By recognition and reward the employees are motivated to give their best in the interests of the organization in particular and for the society in general. So many schemes of recognition and rewards are given to boost the morale and motivate the employees. According to Managing Director of the company, morale management is considered to be more challenging than material management. According to him it is important to keep walking around and congratulating the teams for their small victories. Efforts and their success stories 37

are disclosed to all in special functions so that other employees may take inspiration from them. Employees are rewarded for doing exemplary work in the field of reducing/ eliminating breakdown, in-house development, better house keeping, and reduction in raw material, fuel, power and wastage. Cash awards and Certificates of honour have been given in a function. For example a scrapper chain of reclaimer II is to be replaced which takes 80 hours. The team completed this task in minimum possible time with the result that the reclaimer was put into operation in just 36.5 hours. The team was rewarded with a cash amount of Rs. 11,000/- and certificate of honour.

• Nomination to Vishwakarma Rashtriya Puraskar The objective of Vishwakarma Rashtriya Puraskar is to recognise the outstanding contributions made by a worker or a group of workers in an organisation for exemplary work related to improved productivity, occupational safety and health, environment and working conditions as well as safety and quality of product. It is our endeavor to encourage the workers to participate in this puraskar. The innovative work done on:• • •

Removal of hanger bearing from ESP Hopper Screw Conveyors. Replacement of Cooler gas portion. Replacements of castable bull nosed top to refractory brick arch were selected for this puraskar.

• Multiskill development training programme


In 2001-02, the company started the concept of multi skilling to optimise manpower, enhance skill sets and to facilitate cross-functional development. Unlike other organisations who introduce multi-skilling for high fliers, the company started this concept first for its workers. Reason: The company faced a problem of surplus workers. Other organizations would have resorted to retrenching and laying off, but this is not Shree's philosophy. Shree optimally utilized its surplus strength by developing worker skills in other technical process. This helped the company build in a redundancy factor wherein at any given point there was always a skilled set of people for any function. The company reduced overtime through efficient manpower utilisation, organized smooth functioning of the production cycle, increased job security leading to a greater sense of belonging and strengthened industrial relations. As a result the company did not lose a single day's work due to strikes or lockouts. Employees were deputed for Multiskill training of fitter trade in different Industrial Training Centers.

Following the success of multi-skilling with workers, the company introduced this concept with staff members. The objective was to enhance competencies and to enable managers understand how an initiative taken by their department could affect the productivity and performance of another department. This broadened the outlook of staff members, making them think like business managers. • THE COMPANY’S PEOPLE ACHIEVEMENTS The company’s people achievements are reflected in the following numbers Manpower training hours/Year Year 99-00 00-02 01-02 Training 4.92 5.28 8.33 hours

Human resource planning (HRP) is a way of assisting the best deployment of human resources and can help organisation to:
• • • • • •

assess future recruitment needs anticipate and possibly avoid redundancies formulate training programmes develop a promotion and career development policy including succession planning keep staff costs to a minimum while permitting salaries to be competitive assess future premises requirements.

A process which anticipates and maps out the consequences of business strategy on an organization's human resources. This is reflected in planning of skill and competence needs as well as total headcounts.For resourcing strategies to be implemented they must be translated into practical action. The strategic process can be organized logically - for example, following the decision sequence shown on page 351 of Human Resource Management in a Business Context. For these decisions to be taken, information must be obtained, consequences gauged, political soundings taken and preferences assessed. It is clear that many of these decisions are fundamental to an organization. If the implications are major, strategic decisions are taken at the centre of the businessRearch. The role of the human resource function is two-fold: 1. To participate in the decision process by providing information and opinion on each option, including: • • • • • • • redundancy or recruitment costs consequences on morale redeployment/outplacement opportunities availability of skilled staff within the organization availability of suitable people in the job market time constraints development/training needs/schedules


management requirements.

This forms part of the information collated from the organization as a whole 2. To support line managers dealing with the people consequences of implementing the decision. Information already gathered provides the basis for a human resource plan.

People as numbers

The manpower planning approach which addresses questions such as: • • • • • How many staff do we have/need? How are they distributed? What is the age profile? How many will leave in each of the next five years? How many will be required in one, five, ten years?

Human Resource Information Systems are invaluable in answering these questions. Forecasting methods Human resource planners have a choice of techniques open to them, including: extrapolation (of past trends); projected production/sales; employee analysis; scenario building.


Employee turnover Turnover covers the whole input-output process from recruitment to dismissal or retirement and takes the consequences of promotion and transfer into account. 'Soft' planning HRM implies that planning has to go beyond the 'numbers game' into the softer areas of employee attitudes, behaviour and commitment. These aspects are critical to HR development, performance assessment and the management of change. Human Resource Planning involves HRP can be divided into three main stages: 1. Forecasting labour requirements by examining:
• • • • • •

the organisation’s objectives future plans for marketing, production, finance and reorganization changes in working practices changes in productivity the extent of temporary and sub-contract work Seasonal variations.

2. Assessing labour supply by:
• •

analyzing personnel records Examining external factors such as the economy, unemployment, population changes, competition from other firms in the area and the numbers of school and college leavers available.


3. Matching the available supply against the forecast demand by:

Planned recruitment, selection, promotion and staff development.

How far in advance should labour be planned? The period will vary according to the size and type of organisation. It may be necessary to operate more than one plan; for example:
• • •

a five-year strategic plan a three-year operating plan a six-monthly detailed plan.

HRP is not an exact science and plans will need updating in the light of changed circumstances. Working through an HR planning process allows you to analyze your demand and supply of human resources and develop the appropriate strategies aimed at filling projected gaps.

The HR planning process is illustrated in the following diagram.


Succession management is a key strategy that you will probably want to implement as a result of your HR planning process. It addresses many of the issues, such as:
• • • • •

an aging workforce increasing retirement rates tight labor market limited competitiveness, and fast-paced changes in work.

By implementing a succession management program that is transparent and equitable you will be creating an environment for people to develop their skills in preparation for a range of future possibilities. This results in a workplace that will be well positioned to face whatever lies ahead. The following is the corporate succession management model.





Human Resource Planning helps to assess future recruitment needs, anticipate and possibly avoid redundancies Accordingly formulate training programs, develop a promotion and career development policy including succession planning It also helps to keep staff costs to a minimum while permitting salaries to be competitive And finally it assesses future premises requirements.



• • • • • • •

Understand the ever-changing role of human resources Translate a new role into identifying “value-added” services for the organization Use a human resource impact model Develop a keen knowledge of the strategic planning process Conduct a gap analysis on your current human resource processes Build a human resources strategic business plan Assess and measure human resource efforts for strategic linkage of all human resource processes to organizational strategy
