2.3 ORGANIZATION STRUCTURE OF INDIA INFOLINE: The company structure deal with the total strength of the company as well as the details about each and every persons working details in that particular company. The organization structure is of two types. They are as follows: 1. CLASSICAL OR TALL TYPE: When one superior controls less number of sub-ordinates, say 3 to 4 subordinates, who in turns control other 3 to 4 sub-ordinates, we get a tall structure with many layers of managers. This structure is called as the tall or classical or pyramid structure. Generally, this structure involves seven layers. Due to this the communication between the top management and the employees is not very frequent and therefore creates a gap between the same. In this type of organization, the cost remains high as in this structure the organization has to provide each and every thing or one can say the facilities to all the employees either they are at top level or lower level. 2.FLAT OR NEW TYPE: In the flat structure, one superior control a large number of sub-ordinates, say 5 to 6, who in turns control other 5 to 6 sub-ordinates given rise to a flat structure. Training in the flat structure is relatively weak because there are more number of people. The degree of control is loose because of more number of people. The advantages in having this type of

structure are in this case the decision making is very fast because everybody is added to the time. Besides this the communication between the top management and the lower employees becomes much easier. Although this method is also somehow expensive as each and every person at work place is given with the same facilities and amenities that the head of the department or branch manager is having. And in this type of structure getting the feedback or response of the employees on some decision or implementation becomes very easy and as per that they can modify the structure or working condition of the work place. Also the employees remain very motivated as they consider themselves as an important part of the organization. In this way, it is confirmed that the company follows the flat organization structure in order to avoid all the problems that occur due to the miscommunication between the top management people and the workers there.

4.1 Recruitment: Recruitment refers to the process of finding possible candidates for a job or function, usually undertaken by recruiters. It also may be undertaken by an employment agency or a member of staff at the business or organization looking for recruits. Advertising is commonly part of the recruiting process, and can occur through several means: through online, newspapers, using newspaper dedicated to job advertisement, through professional publication, using advertisements placed in windows, through a job center, through campus graduate recruitment programs, etc. Suitability for a job is typically assessed by looking for skills, e.g. Communication skills, typing skills, computer skills. Evidence for skills required for a job may be provided in the form of qualifications (educational or professional), experience in a job requiring the relevant skills or the testimony of references. Employment agencies may also give computerized tests to assess an individual's "off-hand" knowledge of software packages or typing skills. At a more basic level written tests may be given to assess innumeracy and literacy. A candidate may also be assessed on the basis of an interview. Sometimes candidates will be requested to provide a rsum (also known as a CV) or to complete an application form to provide this evidence.

SELECTION: Selection Process is concerned with the development of selection policies and procedures and the evaluation of potential employees in terms of job specifications. This process includes the development of application blanks, valid and reliable tests interview techniques, evaluation and selection of person in terms of job specifications, the making up of final recommendations to the line management and the sending of offers and rejection letters. Placement is concerned with the task of placing an employee in job for which he is best fitted, keeping in view the job requirements, his qualifications and personality needs.


4.2 FACTORS AFFECTING RECRUITMENT: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 The size of organization The employment conditions in the community where the organization is located. The effect of past recruiting efforts which shows the organization ability to locate And keep good performing people. The working condition, salary and benefits package offered by the organization. The rate of growth of organization. The level of seasonality of operation and future expansion and production programmes and the culture, economic and legal factors, etc.


Normally an organization can fill up its vacancies either through promotions of people available in the organization or though the selection of people from outside. Thus recruitment may be classified in two broad categories. Internal sources External sources Internal Sources: a. Present employees- whenever any vacancies occur somebody from with in the organization is promoted transferred promoted or some time demoted. b. Retired and retrenched employees who want to return to the company may be hired. c. Dependents and relative of diseased and disabled employees

Advantages of internal sources: It improves the moral of employees. Provide greater motivation for good performance. It is a less costly source than going outside to recruit. Greater promotion opportunities for the present employees. 14

Labor turns over reduced.

Disadvantages of internal sources: Chances of favoritism. It discourages the flow of new blood in to the organization. As promotion is based on seniority the danger is that really capable hands may not be chosen. EXTERNAL SOURCES: While vacancies through internal source can be filled up either though promotion or transfer, recruiter tends to focus their attention on external source. Normally following external source is utilized for different position. 1. Advertisement: Advertisement is the most effective means to search potential employees from out side the organization. Employment in journals, newspaper, bulletins etc is quite common is our country. It has a very wide reach. One advertisement in a leading daily can cover millions of persons throughout the country. Cost per person is very low it is used for clerical, technical and managerial jobs. 2. Employment Agencies: In our country two types of employment agencies are operating. Public employment agencies and private employment agencies. a. Public employment agencies: there are employment exchanges run by the government, almost in all districts. Normally such exchanges provide candidates for lower position like clerk and junior supervisor etc. b. Private employment agencies: there are many consultancies and employment agencies like ABC consultant, A.F. Ferguson and company, personal and productivity services, S.B.


Billimoria and company etc. which provide employment services particularly for selecting higher level and middle level executives. 3. Campus Recruitment: Many organizations conduct preliminary search of prospective employees by conductive interviews at the campuses of various institute, universities and colleges. IIMs, IITs, engineering colleges. It is and universities are good sources for recruiting well-qualified executives, engineers, medical staff, chemist, pharmacist etc. 4. Employee recommendations: The idea behind employee recommendation as a source of potential applicants is that the present employees may have a specific knowledge of the individuals who may be their friends, relatives. If the present employees are reasonably satisfied with their jobs, they communicate these feelings give preference to local people (sons of the sole) in recruitments, particularly at lower and middle levels jobs.

5. Labor Contractors: Manual workers can be recruited through a contractor who maintains close links with source of such workers. This source is often used to recruit labor for construction jobs. The disadvantage of this source is that when the contractor leaves the organization people employed through him also go. 6. Gate Recruitment: Gate recruiting is quite useful and convenient method at the initial stage of the organization. When large number of such people may be required by the organization. In some industries like jute the large number of workers work as "badli" or "substitute" workers. A notice on the notice board of the company specifying the details of the job vacancies can be put. It is very economical. 7. Similar Organizations:


Experienced employees can be recruited by offering better benefits to the people working in similar organization. Newly established organizations of well-known houses often lure experienced executives and technical experts from the public sectors. 8. Deputation: Many organizations take people on deputation from other organization/department of the same corporate. Such people are given choice either to return to their original organization after a certain time or to opt for the present organization. 9. Computer data Banks: When a company desires a particular type of employee, job specification and requirements are fed into a computer where they matched against the resume data stored therein. The output is a set of resumes for individuals who meet the requirements. Advantages of External Sources: 1. It helps to bring new blood and new ideas into the organization. 2. Expertise and experience from other organization can be brought. 3. It doesn't change the present organizational hierarchy that much. 4. As recruitment is done from a wider market, best selection can be made. Disadvantages of External Sources: 1. This source is more costly and time consuming. 2. The orientation and training of new employees is necessary. 3. If higher level of jobs is filled from external sources, motivation and loyalty of existing staff are affected.



Direct Method: In this method organization sends traveling recruiters to educational and professional institution. One of the most widely used methods is that of sending of recruiters to college and technical schools. Sometimes some organization open their placement offices in the college and schools. The placement office usually provides help in attracting student arranging interviews and providing in MBA or this manner. Sometimes firms directly solicit information from the concerned proffers about student with an outstanding record. Other direct method includes sending recruiter to seminars and conventions and using mobile officers to go to desired centers. Indirect Method: This invoices mostly advertising in newspapers, on the Radio, in trade and professional journals, Technical magazines and brochures. It is very useful for blue collar and hourly workers as well as scientific professionals and technical employees. Whenever necessary a blind advertisement can be given in which only box no. is given, without identifying the company. Third Party Method: Various agencies can be used to recruit, personnel. Public employment exchanges, management consulting firms, professional societies, temporary help societies, trade union, and labor contractors are the main agencies.

4.5 TIPS FOR MAKING RECRUITMENT A SUCCESS 1. Be clear about what you want - Recruiting the right person starts with a detailed job description and personal specification. It also involves following a recruitment process that produces a suitable candidate at a minimum cost to the business. 2. Use a thorough recruitment process - The more complex the job, the more

sophisticated recruitment process needs to be. However, as a minimum, the interview process should include: at least two interviews, a psychometric assessment and a thorough


reference check. 3. Advertise carefully - Advertisements should be clear, to the point such as Executive Search is frequently more effective than advertising under your own name. 4. Interview thoroughly - Interviews should be highly structured. They should reveal the levels of competency in key areas, appropriateness of experiences, personality strength and weaknesses and integrity. Professional, thorough and consistent interviewing requires a high level of training and coaching. The team at Executive search has these skills. 5. Always recruit the right person for the job - Recruitment should be seen as a 'rejection process' as much as a 'selection process'. Don't be tempted to pick the best of a bad bunch'. 6. Pre screening saves time -executive Search will screen likely candidates with a simple telephone interview before deciding who to invite for the first face-to-face interview. This will pay you dividends in terms of time and money saved. 7. Don't do all the talking - When you actually meet the candidates, let them tell you about their background and achievements. The more you talk, the more you will like the candidate, so, keep quiet, don't tell him or her about the job, the package, the company, or you, until they have told you about themselves. 8. Remember training & development - Look for development needs; the perfect person rarely exists. Identify what initial training will be required and ask yourself; how much you will need to invest in the candidate and whether he or she is worth that investment. 9. Never over sell the job - Over exceeding expectations, leads to frustrations later. Honesty about the role is always the best policy.


10. Background & reference checks - Research indicates that around 90% of new employees never have references taken up. Background checks should be as thorough, as possible and should include employment history, medical checks, and where appropriate; character references. 11. Assess appropriately - Carefully selected assessments are valuable tools in the selection process, but not to the exclusion of a structured interview. Individuals should be selected on the basis of past performance, competence and personality. 3.5 ESSENTIALS OF THE SELECTION PROCEDURE: leads to wastage of

The nature of the selection weather faulty or staff. Faulty selection

time and money and spoils the environment and the image of company.The policy of the company and the attitude of the management. As a practice some companies usually hire more than the actual number needed with a view to removing the unfit persons from the job.The length of the probationary period. The longer the period, the greater the uncertainty in the minds of the selected candidate about his/her future. SELECTION PROCEDURE: The selection procedure is concerned with recruiting revalent information about an application. The objective of it is to determine whether an applicant meets the qualifications for a specific job and to choose the applicant who is most likely to perform that in job According to Yoder - "the living process is a one or many 'go no-go gauge. Candidates are screened by the application) of their tools Steps in selection process:1. Preliminary Interview: A special interviewer or a high caliber receptionist in the employment office usually conducts the initial screening. This interview is essentially a sorting


process in which prospective applicant are given the necessary information about the nature of the in the organization. Necessary information is also elicited from the candidates about their education, skills, experience, salary expected etc. 2. Application Blank: An application blank is a traditional, widely accepted device for getting information from a prospective applicant. The application form should provide all the information relevant to selection. But reference to caste, religion, birthplace may be avoided as it is regarded an evidence of discrimination. Generally' an application form contains the following information. a. Identifying information: Name, Address, Telephone no. b. Personal information: Name, Age, Sex, Marital Status, and Dependents. c. Physical Characteristics: Height, Weight, and Eyesight. d. Education: Academic education, Professional Degree, work experience, references etc. 3. Selection Test: Many organization hold different kinds of selection tests to know more about the candidates. A test is a sample of some aspect of an individual's attitudes behavior and performance. Tests are useful when the number of applicant is large. In India the use of psychological and other tests is gaining popularity. 4. Employment interview: It is face-to-face interaction between two persons for a particular purpose. Selection test is normally followed by personal interview of the candidate. It consists of interaction between interviewer and applicant. It helps in obtaining information about the background, 'education training, work history and interest of the candidate and giving Information to him about the company and policies. As well as it is also helpful to establishing friendly relationship between the employer and the candidate. It can be different types like information, formal, structured, unstructured, depth, group and stress interview. 5. Medical Examination: It is carried out to ascertain the physical standards and fitness of prospective employee. Either company's physician or a medical officer approved for the purpose. It determines candidate's physical fitness for the job. It prevents the employment of people suffering 21

from contingencies disease. It provides a record of the employee's health at the time of selection. This record will .help in setting company's liability under the workmen compensation act for claim for an injury. 6. Reference checks: Many organizations ask the candidates to provide the names of two or three persons who know him well. The organization contacts them by mail or telephone. In this way organization can get more information about the candidate like character, working etc. 7. Final Approval: On the basis of the above steps the selection committee or personal department recommends suitable candidates for selection. The candidate short-listed by the department is finally approved by the executives of the concerned departments.Employment is offered in the form of an appointment letter, mentioning the post, the rank, the salary grade, and the date by which the candidate should join and other terms and conditions in brief. 8. Placement: After all the formalities are completed the candidate are placed on their jobs, initially on probation basis. The probation period may range from 3 months to 2 years. During this period they are observed keenly and when they complete this period successfully they become the permanent employment of the organization.

SCREENING OF RESUMES OF INTERESTED CANDIDATES: After approaching the list of prospective candidates, i then received the resumes of the interested candidates (generally the soft copies).As the requirement was for two different posts, different factors were taken into consideration for the purpose of screening of resumes. These are discussed as below: SENIOR RELATIONSHIP MANAGER: For the designation of SRM, I looked into the following factors for the purpose of screening of resumes: PRESENTATION OF RESUME: - The overall presentation of the resume was looked upon. Resumes with grammatical errors, bad layout, and informal presentation were rejected. AUTHENTICITY: - In case of a hard copy, authenticity was checked by assuring that the resume was duly signed by the candidate. AGE: - The minimum age required for the candidate to apply for the above post was 21years. WORK EXPERIENCE: - The most important factor to be looked upon was the work experience of the candidate. If non-mba, .the candidate needed to have minimum work experience of at least 2-3years in the field of selling any financial product, preferably insurance. An mba graduate, without any work experience, was required to have done his/her summer internship in selling only financial product, preferably insurance. NATIVE CITY: - The native city of the candidate was also looked into so as to find out if the company had any office out there in that city. If the city matched, then the candidate could be considered for transfer. EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES: - Since the requirement was for a "RELATIONSHIP MANAGER", communication skills were tried to be assessed through the resume forwarded. It was preferred if the candidate had held any position of Captain of any team or had organized any event on his own, or any 25

other activity that demonstrated his relationship managing. RELATIONSHIP MANAGER: I looked into the following factors while screening the resumes for the post of RM: PRESENTATION OF THE RESUME:The overall presentation The overall presentation of the resume was looked upon. Resumes with grammatical errors, bad layout, and informal presentation were rejected. AUTHENTICITY: - In case of a hard copy, authenticity was checked by assuring that the resume was duly signed by the candidate.

EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES: - The pre- requisite requirement for the candidates applying for this post was to have excellent communication skills. This was assessed by looking into the extra curricular activities performed the candidate. Candidates with active participation in debates and in similar events where strong communication skills were required were considered. HOBBIES: - As the post of RM included massive interaction with customers, the person of an extrovert personality was preffered. The personality of the candidate was tried to be judged through his/her hobbies. A person interested in outdoor games, giving performances (such as dancing ets) or any other activities involving interaction with people generally reflected the traits of an extrovert personality. On the other hand, person inserted in indoor sports and activities (reciting poems, painting etc) generally reflected the traits of an introvert personality. LINGUISTIC PREFERENCES: - Candidates familiar with the local language were also given preference.


SHORTLISTING OF THE RESUMES: I then short listed the appropriate candidates by preparing an Evaluation Sheet. The sheet included the parameters, important for the applied post (as discussed above). This helped in short listing of the resumes. After short listing, I submitted the evaluation sheet to our HR manager for approval. INFORMING THE SHORTLISTED CANDIDATES AND FIXING DATE FOR INTERVIEW: After gaining approval from our HR Manager regarding the short listing of the resumes of the candidates, I then prepared the list of short listed candidates. Thereafter, I informed the candidates by either mailing the list to the respective institutes or by contacting the candidates personally. The date and time for carrying out the selection process was then informed. FILLING UP OF APPLICATION BLANK: The short listed candidates were then called upon the decided date and time and were then asked to fill up application blank. Hereupon, the candidates gave their personal details along with academic qualifications and work experience. It helped to cross-check with the information provided in the resume by the candidate. It also gave an insight into the family background of the candidate and also provided the details of the persons to be referred to. CONDUCTING WALK-IN INTERVIEW: For the designation of SRM, I took the first round of the candidates. The short listed candidates were qualified for 2nd PI round which was usually at taken by our HR Manager or any other concerned senior authority. For the designation of SRM, only one walk in interview was conducted, solely by me. Though the walk in interview was a two-way communication round, I spoke less and encouraged the candidate to speak the most.. I tried my best to put the candidates at ease and to make them fully comfortable started off with the interview with some light chat like asking the candidate to speak something about himself and about his family background. This helped me to check his communication skills and his confidence. Details about family


background provided me an insight about the native place, family culture, his own responsibilities towards family. To some extent it also helped in judging his behavior and his basic need for the job I then asked questions related to his/her hobbies to allow him/her to speak more. This further allowed me to judge his/her as a person .I then asked the candidate about his strengths and asked to support them with examples. This helped me to judge whether the candidates strengths matched with those required for the job profile. For working in broking industry one needed to have good communication skills, market knowledge, should be adaptable, capable of handling stress, managing time and good at building relationships. I also asked the candidate about his weaknesses and then asked him as what he was doing to improve upon them . This helped me to judge his attitude, sense of responsibility and level of seriousness. All these questions also helped me to find out as such how much the candidate knows about himself. I asked the candidate about his knowledge regarding the company and the reason he wanted to join our company. This helped me to judge how interested the candidate was in the company and his urge to join .. I also asked him questions related to sales marketing. I also asked the candidates some situational based questions regarding selling. Then I tried to put some questions to check the candidate's retain ability in the company such as by asking his future plans. I asked the candidate what were his expectations from the company. I then explained him the job profile, CTC and cleared all his queries. At last I thanked him for applying to the company. During this course of training the selected candidate were given full knowledge about the all products. The selected candidate were totally molded perfectly to perform at there best on the field.
