4.10 Data Processing "As a business manager, you need to take a hard look at your core competencies. Revisit the areas of your company that aren't directly involved in those competencies, and consider whether Web technologies can enable you to spin off those tasks. Let another company take over the management responsibilities for that work, and use modern communication technology to work closely with the people - now partners instead of employees are doing the work. In the Web work style, employees can push the freedom the Web provides to its limits." - Bill Gates (Times - Apr'99) Almost every business can become overwhelmed and backlogged by the tremendous volume of paper that generates tons of data which requires sorting and analysis to be processed. Banks, Financial Institutions, Airlines, Healthcare, insurance companies, government agencies, hospitals, advertising, and retailers are businesses that typically handle forms that have been filled out by individuals or are machine-generated. Business entities are dependent upon speed and accuracy as this has a direct impact on their efficiency, resources and profits. For small one-time keyboarding requirements to complex Order processing & entry, KGISL caters to a huge magnitude of clients.

for a trainer to understand that people tend to follow their favorite trainer for specific styles. Strong thought connectivity, an good sense of humor, and a suave speaker with the idea of transforming individual potential with the power of voice. o Neutral Accent Neutral accent training helps us to reduce our regional accent to speak a language in an elegant Style and pronounciation. This training majorly deals with accent neutralization, jaw movements for vowels and consonants, voice and accent, phonetics, sounds of English, pronunciation and mock practices. This training is mostly required by BPO workers and call center [Eg. Best outsourced call center company] executives whose profession is to speak with foreign clients. Voice overs, actors, pilots, business people, leaders and socialites show much interest to learn neutral accent. This Module teaches you to reduce the mother-tongue-influence while speaking the native language. Native speakers never expect you to speak English in their way of pronunciation. They expect you to speak English clearly so that they can communicate well. No one can be able communicate without a hint of accent. But if you speak with heavily accented English, no one can get what you are trying to say. So speak in a neutral English. This training develops you to communicate in a standard way that is universally accepted.

Today the word 'neutral' is often used in accent training centers. Trainers teach about neutral American accent, neutral British accent, neutral Spanish accent, neutral pronunciation, neutral English, etc.46

The main objective of the neutral English trainer is to improve the communicative skills of the trainees and guide them develop a neutral accent that is globally understandable. They have to make use of software and modern techniques to modulate the voice and reduce the accent to ensure the people speak neutral English perfectly. o Process Training Business processesranging from customer service processes to support processes such as accountsare the backbone of any company. KGiSL develops training programs to prepare employees to streamline and speed up the

automated/non-automated processes involved in their day-to-day work. The process training developed by KGiSL focuses on the application rather than just acquisition of knowledge of processes. Thus, the training program focuses on creating real-life scenarios and practice activities. Process training benefits anybody in a company who needs to execute business processes, fully or partially. Process training is essential for companies, in any industry vertical, to keep up with the stringent demands of a competitive marketplace.

KGiSL has a variety of approaches for process training, depending on the intensity of training required:

Simple, linear step-by-step teaching model, which is presented in the context of a scenario. Reinforcement activities include simple problem-solving questions.

Complex decision-tree-based training where the learners explore the multiple process outcomes that are possible based on their decisions.

47

Although our process training can be applied in any company at any level, it is especially relevant in:

Organizations that are undergoing business process changes Large, geographically dispersed organizations that want to ensure standardized processes across locations

Day To Day Activities: o Flow of workings everyday

KGiSL employees use workflow for various H.R functions like ;

Recruitment And Selection

Payroll

Benefits management

Training and Development

Performance management

o Head Hunting

Headhunting refers to the approach of finding and attracting the best experienced person with the required skill set. Headhunting involves convincing the person to join your organization.

48

Head hunting is now one of the most used technique of recruitment. however the same is used mostly for top notch positions like CFOs, CEOs, FMs, GMs, HR Mgrs etc.. the same is due to the reason that people for such position rarely circulate their cvs and also the company who wants the position to be filled may require candidates who is presently either working for the competitor or another company in the same line. Also head hunting is used because it gives a guarantee for the credibility for the candidate. Head hunting is becoming highly popular and is used more than it was in the past. Another reason for the same is that it saves time - time for screening and short listing etc... Also the qualifications for such position may be kind of rare to find.

49

o Offer Letter

An offer letter is the first document using which a company contacts the employee who is selected for appointment. It contains the designation offered, general terms, salary figures, payment details, working hours etc. The employee can either accept or reject the offer. If he agrees to the conditions given in the Offer Letter, he will inform a convenient joining date. Then the company issues the Appointment Letter as a confirmation of his job. o Induction happens everyday

WHAT IS INDUCTION?

When a new employee joins in an organization, he completely a stranger to the people, work place and the work environment. Therefore, he is likely to feel insecure, shy and nervous. In the absence of information and support these is likely to be anxiety and fear in his mind. He may undergo reality shock caused by a gap between his expectations and the real situation. Induction or orientation can help overcome these problems. Once an employee is selected and placed on an appropriate job, the process of familiarizing him with the job and the organization begins. This process is called induction or orientation.

CONTENTS OF INDUCTION PROGRAMME A formal induction programmer should provide information concerning the following: 50

Brief history and operations of a company. Product and services of the company The companies organization structures

Location of departments and employee facilities Policies and procedures of the company Rules, regulations and daily work routines Grievance procedures Standing orders and disciplinary procedures Terms and conditions of services including wages, working hours, Overtime, holidays, etc. Suggestions schemes Benefits and services for employees Opportunities for training, promotions, transfers, etc

o Responding to the profiles that comes The employees will be responding the profiles by using ATS (Applicant Tracking System). This is the software package specially made for KGiSL. o Coordinating with manpower agencies Coordinating with Manpower Agencies to get in right people for right job at right cost in right time. o Walk-in Reports To give an official statement on daily basis of number of candidates attended the interview. [Recruitment will be done during the period of September to February]

5. Research and Methodology

52

Statement of Problem:

Human resource has gained a wide acceptance in the industry. The objective of the study was to access employee satisfaction. This has led to the need for more experienced and skillful employee where to be trained to meet the organization requirement. People in an organization are the most productive resource and also the most expensive organization spends on this resource in order to extract the best contribution out of them. A small judgment error in rectifying a non-retainable employee could lead to decal losses in terms of time and money spend on his training and job socialization as also initial losses in terms of job held up due to vacancy in position and other related job being postponed in todays fast pace corporate world, time management being important, such errors are not called for therefore more stress is laid on efficient, effective and potential worker for the organization corporate world today recruits people directly and prudently rather simply hire and fire people. The mobilization of money, the construction of factory building, the purchase and installation of machines and procurement of materials are the initial measures taken by a management in the establishment of a company. The recruitment and selection of people to man and machines and auxiliary services form a part of these initial measures. Without people to man and plant, the collection of physical resources by itself will not serve only purpose. The hiring of men and women required is more important than the marshalling of physical resources in the establishment of the company and the attainment of its objectives. Note that the hiring of people is confirmed to the initial stages in the formation of an enterprise. The employment is continuous one and it ends only when the enterprise eases to exist.

53

More important, an enterprise grows and diversifies, and so there is great need for men and women. Recruitment and selection, therefore becomes a specialized function and is disclosed by the personnel department. Therefore, it is necessary to know about the employment function i.e., recruitment, selection, interviews, placing and orientation of personnels. HR is the major inputs for any organization to achieve its objectives. Therefore its important for any organization to spend time and money till the right personnel are found. Field of study: This project work was carried out at KGiSL. Research samples: IT and BPO industry plays a very important role in the economy. The sample was therefore chosen as it portrays the needs of the researchers. Research provides an insight into any study top basically evaluate and judge the data or to find the solution to any given problem a simple is representative of a group or population that identifies itself as part of it. Objectives of the study: Background Verification & analysis are one of major HRM function that helps manager to keep the skilled members in the organization. Data Collection: The data collected contains primary data and secondary data. The primary data has been collected mainly by interviewing and also observation and audit. Secondary data has been obtained from published journals, company broachers, books, internet, etc.

54

Limitations of the Study: 1. As the project is prepared for academic purpose only, it suffers from the limitations of time and money, due to which analytical study into all the strategies adopted by the organization was not possible. 2. The study was completed within short span of time that was available. 3. The report also suffers from the limitations of exhaustiveness as far as the information is concerned. 4. All this study is limited to KGiSL, Coimbatore.
