SECTION - B
6. Read the following case carefully and answer the questions given at the end :


Dharam Singh, general manager at 'Prithviraj Chemicals' was worried about his future, even though he had been told that after 'Prithviraj Chemicals' is merged with Orchid Pharmaceuticals he would be promoted and also be required to shoulder the additional responsibility of identifying those who should be retained as employees even after the merger. Dharam was concerned because he had heard that the organisational culture at 'Orchid' was computer driven, while at 'Prithviraj Chemicals', the focus was on "relationship"


A month later after the official merger of the two companies, the new management took the decision to shift the headquarters to Bangalore from Mysore. This decision was communicated to its employees, (many of 'Prithviraj Chemicals'). They approached Dharam Singh to ask 'Why was the new management shifting its Headquarters to a new place (Bangalore)', Was it because the two managements did not trust each other ?' This question was posed especially because most of Prithviraj's employees had become used to the'quiet, risk averse and friendly work environment' and were worried whether in Bangalore, with its 'cosmopolitan outlook, it would lead to cultural clashes.


As anticipated there were certain instances which had Dharam Singh wondering how to solve such cultural differences. The 'Prithviraj employees' consensus, relationship-result oriented approach always believed in an open communication system with all employees keeping each other informed about any decision and bringing about a consensus in all the decisions taken. On the other hand, the 'Orchid' employees were individually only concerned with their 'individual' work i.e., they were more focused on ambitious cost-cutting goals and each employee was individually responsible for quantifiable results.


• Whenever any work related problem arose,the 'Prithviraj' employees adopted an attitude 'Tell us about the problem from all angles and we will discuss and tell you how best to handle it.' In contrast, the 'Orchid' employees attitude was 'just tell me how this problem will/may affect my work, I am not interested in the whole problem.


. Many of 'Orchid' employees had worked in other cities of North India and few of them had also travelled abroad for official work and thus were more confident, more computer savvy, tough and didn't mince words. Because of this, the 'Prithviraj' employees felt threatened and preferred to describe 'Orchid' employees as 'loners','tough' and 'hard working.'

• At 'Prithviraj', employees were required to make weekly financial and staffing updates to their 'bosses'. However, at 'Orchid' this formality was considered to be a waste of time and they didn't adopt or accept this practice.
Dharam Singh had been with 'Prithviraj since the last 12 years and knew that 'Sudhir' (the M.D. at 'Prithviraj') had a lot of confidence in him when he had said "Dharam, I am very sure that we can count on you to see that there is no dissent among the employees after the merger. The new company is looking upon you to solve the societal-level cultural difference which is prevailing among the employees, so that we can have our own unique culture which would be a blend of both 'Prithviraj' and 'Orchid's way of doing business."


Questions :
(a) Critically analyse the core issues of the case.


(b) Understanding the type of culture followed by 'Prithviraj' and 'Orchid', what type of culture should the newly merged company follow ?

(c) Can you suggest ways to help Dharam Singh to cope with the existing cultural differences ?

6. Read the following case carefully and answer thequestions given at the end :

The eleven workers whose annual increments were stopped made a representation to the management of YES Limited that the actiontaken was not justified and that they wanted to know what was their fault. The management which acted upon the recommendation of the department head concerned, Mr. Rai, felt guilty because such an action was taken for the first time in the history of the company.

YES Limited was a large paper manufacturing company in South India. Themajor departments of the factory were :

(a) Chemical processing : The raw material was mixed with certain chemicals for making pulp.
(b) Pulp department : Pulp was mixed with other ingredients according to specifications for each order of paper.
(c) Paper machine department : This was the heart of the factory where processed pulp was fed into the paper machines. Act first, a wet weak paper was formed which was subsequently dried and rolled.
(d) Finishing department : The paper rolls were then moved to the processing department where the required coating was given.
(e) Grading, winding and packing departments.
(f) Quality control department.
Twenty eight workers worked in the paper machine department in four groups — each group
attending one machine. The nature of the work on each machine was such that all the seven
workers had to work in cooperation. Because no individual tasks could be specified, the group was
made responsible for the work turned out by them. All the workers working in the paper machine
department had been with the company for over ten years.

The company did not have any incentive wage system for any class of its employees. They were all given straight salaries with normalannual increments. The annual increments were sanctioned each year in a routine way. It was the policy of the company that the increments should not be stopped unless the department head concerned recommended such an action.

Mr. Rai was placed in charge of the paper machine department a year ago. Though Mr. Rai was a newcomer in the organisation, he proved himself to be a very competent man. The management noted that he was very aggressive and enthusiastic and that he knew his job well. At the end of the year when increments were due to be sanctioned, he recommended to the management that the increments due to eleven men in his department should be stopped, for, in his opinion they were lazy and inefficient. The eleven men concerned belonged to all the four groups operating in the department.

The management, though puzzled about the action recommended by Mr. Rai, acted upon it and stopped the increments due to the eleven men concerned. The management were aware that such an action was the first of its kind in the history of the company. Most of the employees were with the company for a fairy long period and there was never an instance of strained relations between the management and the employees.

Soon after the action was taken, the eleven employees concerned made a representation to the management requesting them to let them know what was wrong with their work as to warrant stopping of their increments. The management were in a fix because they did not have specific reasons to give except Mr. Rai's report in which he simply mentioned that the eleven men concerned were "lazy and inefficient".

The management were naturally concerned about the representation and therefore, they tried
to ascertain from Mr. Rai the detailed circumstances under which he recommended the stoppage of increments. When Mr. Rai could not pin-point the reasons, the management suspected that Mr. Rai's recommendation was based on his "impressions" rather than on facts. They, therefore, advised Mr. Rai to maintain a register from then on noting the details of day to day incidents of "lazy and inefficient" workers and obtain the signatures of the workers concerned. Mr. Rai was to make the final appraisal of each worker in his department on the basis of this register and recommend each case giving specific
reasons why increments should be stopped.

Mr. Rai started maintaining a register as suggested by the management; but he found it difficult to report satisfactorily any case of laziness or inefficiency for want of specific reasons. The management were convinced that their action of stopping increments of eleven men onthe strength of Mr. Rai's report was not a proper one. They realised that no similar action in future would be taken based on inadequate information. But, they were wondering whether the suggestion made to Mr. Rai was the proper course of actionto prevent occurrence of similar situations
.
Questions :

(a) Identify and discuss the core issue in the case.
(b) How do you see the action of the management of the company in implementing the recommendations of Mr. Rai, considering them as a sound appraisal and reporting system ?
(c) How would you view the action of Mr. Rai, if you were the M.D. of the company ?
(d) Do you think the reward system of the company needs to be reviewed ?

6. Read the case given below and answer the questions given at the end.

 Ms. Renu had graduated with a degree in foreign languages. As the child of a military family, she had visited many parts of the world and had travelled extensively in Europe. Despite these broadening experiences, she had never given much thought to a career until her recent divorce.


Needing to provide her own income, Ms. Renu began to look for work. After a fairly intense but unsuccessful search for a job related to her foreign language degree, she began to evaluate her other skills. She had become a proficient typist in college and decided to look into secretarial work. Although she still wanted a career utilizing her foreign language skills, she felt that the immediate financial pressures would be eased in a temporary secretarial position.


Within a short period of time, she was hired as a clerk/typist in a typing pool at Life Insurance
Company. Six months later, she became the top  typist in the pool and was assigned as secretary
to Mrs. Khan, Manager of marketing research. She was pleased to get out of the pool and to get
a job that had more variety in the tasks to perform. Besides, she also got a nice raise in pay.


Everything seemed to proceed well for the next nine months. Mrs. Khan was pleased with
Renu's work, and she seemed happy with her work. Renu applied for a few other more
professional jobs in other areas during this time. However, each time her application was rejected
for lack of related education and/or experiencein the area.


Over the next few months, Khan noticed changes in Renu. She did not always dress as neatly as she had in the past, she was occasionally late for work, some of her lunches extended to two hours, and most of her productive work was done in the morning hours. Khan did not wish to say anything because Renu had been doing an excellent job and her job tasks still were being accomplished on time. However, Renu's job behaviour continued to worsen. She began to be absent frequently on Mondays or Fridays. The two-hour lunch periods became standard, and her work performance began to deteriorate. In
addition, Khan began to suspect that Renu was drinking heavily, due to her appearance some
mornings and behaviour after her two-hourlunches.


Khan decided that she must confront Renu with the problem. However, she wanted to find
a way to help her without losing a valuable employee. Before she could set up a meeting,
Renu burst through her door after lunch one day and said :



"I want to talk to you Mrs. Khan".


"That's fine," Khan replied. "Shall we set a
convenient time ?"
"No! I want to talk now."
"OK, why don't you sit down and let's
talk ?"


Khan noticed that Renu was slurring her words slightly and she was not too steady.


"Mrs. Khan, I need some vacation time."


"I'm sure we can work that out. You've been with the company for over a year and have two
weeks vacation coming."


"No, you don't understand. I want to start it tomorrow."


"But, Renu, we need to plan to get a temporary replacement. We can't just let your job
go for two weeks."


"Why not ? Anyway anyone with an IQabove 50 can do my job. Besides, I need the time
off."


"Renu, are you sure you are all right ?"

"Yes, I just need some time away from thejob."

Khan decided to let Renu have the vacation,


which would allow her some time to decide what to do about the situation.


Khan thought about the situation the next couple of days. It was possible that Renu was an
alcoholic. However, she also seemed to have a negative reaction to her job. May be Renu was
bored with her job. She did not have the experience or job skills to move to a different type
of job at present. Khan decided to meet with the Personnel Manager and get some help developing
her options to deal with Renu's problem.



Questions :
(a) What is the core issue in the case ?


(b) What, according to you, was responsible for so sudden change in Renu's behavior and work ?


(c) Did Mrs. Khan handle the situation timely and properly ?


(d) As Chief of HR function, what alternatives do you have ?


- do you see this as an isolated case ?,
- would you to check and revisit organisational systems and processes only after a case ? Substantiate    your answer with rationale.
