EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The importance of Human Resource Management is being increasingly realized in industrial and non-industrial organization both in India and abroad. The realization has come about because of increasing complexity of tasks if managers and administrators. In most organizations the problem of getting the competent and relevant people, retaining them, keeping up their best to the organization, are now viewed as the critical problems. So with this reference the project related to the industrial visit for the study of the HR Practices has been conducted. We had visited Parle &Dabur at Pant Nagar and APC at Udham Singh Nagar. We had concluded data from visits and tried to summarized in this project from primary research. It emphasizes on the importance of a clear cut organization structure and culture to avoid any confusion in order to achieve maximum results with minimum resources. The project report is aimed to cover maximum knowledge of HR Practices followed in organization and how the performance is evaluated of the employees, what primary factors are considered, how data is maintained and finally the evaluation done. Here the HR practices of the companies

have being explained with their products profiles and competitors. The practical knowledge has been gained mainly by observing all the activities taking place in the HR department. This is a brief study done to enhance understanding of the subject HR, how it is practically implemented, why it is necessary , its implications and benefits. PREFACE Human Resource Management is both an academic theory and a business practice that addresses the techniques of managing a workforce. The theoretical discipline is based on the assumption that employees are individuals with varying goals and needs, and as such should not be thought of as bonded labour or can be purchased at price. The field takes a positive view of employees and study of practices followed by organization to manage this intellectual capital to their maximum satisfaction, so that they can work to best of their ability. So, as a MBA student I must know the practical implication of concepts of Human Resource Management, IMS has given me this golden opportunity to meet this end, by means of this Project work. Project work consists of visit to the company and collecting the information about the practices being followed there, as an HR student my aim was to get a deep insight

into HR functioning and to know about the vital role that HR department plays in functioning of other departments. I have done my Project from PARLE, Dabur & APC., Rudrapur, as a requirement for the degree of MBA(HR&IR). I hope to provide relevant information about the various HR functions of the Organization in a nutshell by means of this report. It had been a constant endeavor to remain informative and to the point.

PARLE
HISTORY A long time ago, when the British ruled India, a small factory was set up in the suburbs of Mumbai city, to manufacture sweets and toffees. The year was 1929 and the market was dominated by famous international brands that were imported freely. Despite the odds and unequal competition, this company called Parle Products, survived

and succeeded, by adhering to high quality and improvising from time to time. A decade later, in 1939, Parle Products began manufacturing biscuits, in addition to sweets and toffees. Having already established a reputation for quality, the Parle brand name grew in strength with this diversification. Parle Glucose and Parle Monaco were the first brands of biscuits to be introduced, which later went on to become leading names for great taste and quality. Apart from being the world's largest selling biscuit, Parle - G is winner of 8 Gold and 11 Silver awards at the Mond Selection Awards the global standard for quality in Food category.

Secret of success In keeping with our philosophy, we believe in adding value and spreading the goodness around to improve the quality and safety of human life. Our success today can be attributed to our members of the family and their dedication that has resulted into success of the Parle brand name in the market.

Market share Over the years, Parle has grown to become a multi million US $ company. Parle enjoys the 40% share of the total biscuit market & 15% share of total confectionery market in India THE STRENGTH OF THE PARLE BRAND Over the years, Parle has grown to become a multi-million US Dollar company. Many of the Parle products - biscuits or confectionaries, are market leaders in their category and have won acclaim at the Monde Selection, since 1971. Today, Parle enjoys a 40% share of the total biscuit market and a 15% share of the total confectionary market, in India. The Parle Biscuit brands, such as, Parle-G, Monaco and Krackjack and confectionery brands, such as, Melody, Poppins, Mangobite and Kismi, enjoy a strong imagery and appeal amongst consumers.

Be it a big city or a remote village of India, the Parle name symbolizes quality, health and great taste! And yet, we know that this reputation has been built, by constantly innovating and catering to new tastes. This can be seen by the success

of new brands, such as, Hide & Seek, or the single twist wrapping of Mango bite. In this way, by concentrating on consumer tastes and preferences and emphasizing Research & Development, the Parle brand grows from strength to strength. The Quality Commitment Parle Products has one factory at Mumbai that manufactures biscuits & confectioneries while another factory at Bahadurgarh, in Haryana manufactures biscuits. Apart from this, Parle has manufacturing facilities at Neemrana, in Rajasthan and at Bangalore in Karnataka. The factories at Bahadurgarh and Neemrana are the largest such manufacturing facilities in India. Parle Products also has 14 manufacturing units for biscuits & 5 manufacturing units for confectioneries, on contract. All these factories are located at strategic locations, so as to ensure a constant output & easy distribution. Each factory has state-of-the-art machinery with automatic printing & packaging facilities. All Parle products are manufactured under the most hygienic conditions. Great care is exercised in the selection & quality control of raw materials, packaging materials & rigid quality standards are ensured at every stage of the manufacturing process.

on

our

cultivated

understanding

of

the

Indian

consumer psyche. The value-for-money positioning helps generate large sales volumes for the products.

PARLE G - THE EVOLUTION!!! Parle-G has been a strong household name across India. The great taste, high nutrition, and the international quality, makes Parle-G a winner. No wonder, it's the undisputed leader in the biscuit category for decades. ParleG is consumed by people of all ages, from the rich to the poor, living in cities & in villages. While some have it for breakfast, for others it is a complete wholesome meal. For some it's the best accompaniment for chai, while for some it's a way of getting charged whenever they are low on energy. Because of this, Parle-G is the world's largest selling brand of biscuits. Launched in the year 1939, it was one of the first brands of Parle Products. It was called Parle Glucose Biscuits mainly to cue that it was a glucose biscuit. It was manufactured at the Mumbai factory, Vile Parle and sold in units of half and quarter pound packs. The incredible demand led Parle to introduce the brand in special branded packs and in larger festive tin packs. By

the year 1949, Parle Gluco biscuits were available not just in Mumbai but also across the state. It was also sold in parts of North India. By the early 50s, over 150 tonnes of biscuits were produced in the Mumbai factory. Looking at the success of Parle-G, a lot of other me-too brands were introduced in the market. And these brands had names that were similar to Parle Gluco Biscuits so that if not by anything else, the consumer would err in picking the brand. This forced Parle to change the name from Parle Gluco Biscuits to Parle-G. Originally packed in the wax paper pack, today it is available in a contemporary, premium BOPP pack with attractive side fins. The new airtight pack helps to keep the biscuits fresh and tastier for a longer period. Parle-G was the only biscuit brand that was always in short supply. It was heading towards becoming an all-time great brand of biscuit. Parle-G started being advertised in the 80's. It was advertised mainly through press ads. The communication spoke about the basic benefits of energy and nutrition. In 1989, Parle-G released its Dadaji commercial, which went on to become one of the most popular commercials for Parle-G. The commercial was run for a period of 6 years.

Parle-G grew bigger by the minute. Be it the packs sold, the areas covered or the number of consumers. It became a part of the daily lives of many Indians. It wasn't a biscuit any more. It had become an icon. The next level of communication associated the brand with the positive values of life like honesty, sharing and caring. In the year 1997, Parle-G sponsored the tele-serial of the Indian superhero, Shaktimaan that went on to become a huge success. The personality of the superhero matched the overall superb benefits of the brand. Parle extended this association with Shaktimaan and gave away a lot of merchandise of Shaktimaan, which was supported by POS and press communication. The children just could not get enough of Parle-G and Shaktimaan. In the year 2002, it was decided to bring the brand closer to the child who is a major consumer. A national level promo - `Parle-G Mera Sapna Sach Hoga' was run for a period of 6 months. The promo was all about fulfilling the dreams of children. There were over 5 lakh responses and of that, over 300 dreams were fulfilled. Dreams that were fulfilled ranged from trips to Disneyland at Paris & Singapore; meeting their favorite film star Hrithik Roshan; free ride on a chartered plane; 20 scholarships worth Rs

50,000; a special cricket coaching camp with the Australian cricketer Ricky Ponting; etc.

The year 2002 will go down as a special year in ParleG's advertising history. A year that saw the birth of G-Man a new ambassador for Parle-G. Not just a hero but also a super-hero that saves the entire world, especially children from all the evil forces. A campaign that is not just new to the audiences but one that involves a completely new way of execution that is loved by children all over the world Animation. A TV commercial that showed G-Man saving the children from the evil force called Terrolene launched this campaign. It was also supported by print medium through posters and streamers put up at the retail outlets. G-Man, a new superhero of Parle-G has the potential of making it big. And will be supported by a campaign that will see many a new creative in the future so as to keep the children excited and generate pride in being a consumer of Parle-G. To make the brand much more interesting and exciting with children, it was decided to launch a premium version of Parle-G called Parle-G Magix in the year 2002. Parle-G Magix is available in two exciting tastes - Choco and Cashew. The year 2002 also witnessed the launch of

Parle-G Milk Shakti, which has the nourishing combination of milk and honey, especially launched for the southern market. Parle-G continues to climb the stairs of success. Take a look at the global market where it is being exported. First came the Middle East then USA followed by Africa and then Australia. An Indian brand, that's exported to almost all parts of the world. After all that's what you would expect from the Parle-G World's Largest Selling Biscuit. However, Parle Products also manufactures a variety of premium products for the up-market, urban consumers. And in this way, caters a range of products to a variety of consumers.

BITES CHEESLLINGS SIXER MUST BITTES (new) Competitors of PARLE :-

BRITANNIA ITC
PRIYA GOLD

AMUL Packaging and Labeling Packaging: The time spent by a customer for picking up a product from a retail outlet is a few seconds; therefore a package should appeal to a customer within such a small interval of time. In this, both packaging & labeling play an important role in attracting customers both visually & psychologically. For Parle G: Parle G was initially recognized by its iconic white and yellow stripped wax paper wrapper with the baby face on it. Many competitors have tried to sell their lower quality products by copying the packaging, trying to sell their biscuits as Parel-G; Parle-Jee etc. Due to increasing competition Parle G now uses plastic wrappers for its packaging. Parle-G comes in 8 different sizes: 25gms, 44gms, 93.5gms, 231gms, 340.5gms, 462gms, 577.5gms and a 1kg pack just for Rs.30 which is not usually offered by other brands.

Parle Hide & Seek: It initially came out with 3 variants: Mint, Orange & Chocolate which wasnt accepted by the masses. However, the production of Mint & orange flavors was stopped. Chocolate is the only flavor that is running successfully since it is Indias first chocolate chip biscuit. . Hide & seek biscuit's current packaging has been modified along with lower prices & better affordability rates. Thus there is a change in size of the product which is prevalent in the ads. One of the advertisements shows movie actor, Hrithik Roshan walking with a pack of hide & seek biscuits in the back pocket of his jeans emphasizing on the small size of the product. Parle hide & seek Milano: This product of Parle has a flashy purple coloured packing which attracts customers with the whole look of Italian chocolate chip cookies.
As in all other biscuits, packing plays an important role

in

Parle-G

too. The basic small packs are packed

mechanically using automated machines and are sealed using the Polly bag sealing machine. These small packs are then manually packed into small boxes and are sent through the conveyor belt to be packed in large cartons. 160 packets are packed per minute. And in one big box there are 160 Parle-G packets packed.

Before, they used to bring the packaging material from outside the company but now it is produced in the factory premises itself. For export purpose the packets have different languages print on them depending upon the geographical location & demand of the people. Each factory has state-of-the-art machinery with automatic printing & packaging facilities. Labeling: Consumers are becoming increasingly health conscious. So it is essential to display the contents of every product. Every packet of Parle G, Parle hide & seek, Parle hide & seek Milano has information about the ingredients used, nutrition facts, mailing & emailing addresses asking for feedback, phone number, packaging date etc. All this along with the brand name and directions are printed in Hindi too. Pricing Strategies The Parle marketing philosophy emphasizes catering to the masses. It constantly endeavors at designing products that provide nutrition & fun to the common man. Most Parle offerings are in the low & mid-range price segments. This is based on its cultivated understanding of the Indian consumer psyche. The

value-for-money positioning helps generate large sales volumes for the products. Parle G has adopted the Market Penetration strategy i.e. low price along with capturing of a large market Also they focus on low prices and provide good quality products at the same time, which means it uses the value pricing method. This benefits Parle G by having a competitive edge in terms of large market share which is around 40%: both rural and urban presently. For setting the price of Parle hide & seek biscuit, a survey was taken in the urban & semi-urban markets; on the basis of which hide & seek was introduced. It was found that the potential consumers were ready to pay a premium price for an innovative product like chocolate chip biscuits. Thus, Parle adopted market skimming where the product is high priced and also of high quality. It includes the cost of chocolates, packaging & other processing cost. All these show customer status, which is also one of the reasons for parle hide & seeks high price. A separate example for explaining the pricing strategy of Parle is its product Parle Creams For this product Parle uses going rate method only as a reference rate. In this case, Parle Creams were introduced after Britannias Cream Treats with similar variants but at

Rs.5 per packet of biscuit and not Rs.10 like that of Britannias cream treats. Public Relations Parle has done the following for enhancing public relations: In the year 1997, Parle-G sponsored the tele-serial of the Indian superhero, become Shaktimaan that went on to The personality of the a huge success.

superhero matched the overall superb benefits of the brand. Parle extended this association with Shaktimaan and gave away a lot of merchandise of Shaktimaan. The children just could not get enough of Parle-G and Shaktimaan.

American Power Conversion (APC)


INTRODUCTION & HISTORY In Indian engineering industry today, APC the premier ISO 9001 company is a name to reckon with and the first largest manufacturer of UPS in world. In 1981, APC became a publicly held company. The stock trades under the name APCC. Uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs) are devices that maintain the supply of power to load even when the AC input power is interrupted or disturbed. This is typically accomplished by drawing the necessary power from a stored energy source, such as a battery. UPSs may also convert unregulated input power to voltage and frequent-filtered AC power. Thus, the UPS will provide stable power and minimize

the effects of electric power supply disturbances and variations. Sizes of UPSs vary, from approximately 250 VA to 1000 KVA. Small UPSs are used for single personal computers and workstations where down time is tolerable but data loss must be avoided. These UPSs provide enough backup time for reliable equipment shutdown. Large UPSs provide missioncritical applications where large-scale protection is essential. It is the first of many great days for partners seeking the best solutions in Critical Power and Cooling Services from the desktop to the data centre to the factory floor. It is the first of many great days for our global customers who have already come to trust the products, people, and services behind the APC by Schneider electric name. And in the first of many days for more than 12,000 employees who now stand side-by-side ready to serve you, including: More than 1,600 solution engineers in the field; More than 500 inside support engineers; and More than 1,500 field service engineers who are all, in turn,

Backed by a worldwide team of more than 40000 consultants, systems integrators, and value-added partners ready, willing, and able to take you through a period of unprecedented change in power and cooling design. According to Gartner Research, half of all data centers will need to overhaul their power and cooling solutions within the next few years. At the same time, the number of professionals qualified to design and run modern data centers will decline 45% (AFCOM).In short, we have lot of work to do, with fewer qualified industry experts than ever before. And the nature of work is also changing. It is no longer fiscally responsible to oversize power and cooling, no longer functionally practical to handle IT-driven demand and facility-managed supply issues in blissful isolation. After all, power in equals heat out. It did yesterday, and it will do so tomorrow. And it will be tomorrows biggest problem. This means for the businesses of today, the financial imperative of achieving an Efficient Enterprise and the moral imperative of implementing green data center systems together demand that every power, cooling, and management component be re-evaluated in the context of an integrated solution performing with minimal waste and

maximum scalability, Power, cooling, and management all working together, seamlessly, automatically. No downtime, No headaches, No surprises, For today, and for tomorrow.

APC by Schneider electric is a private limited company mainly producing electronic products, a part of Schneider Electric. APC stands for American Power Conversion. APC stands for, A Accountability P People C Customer APCs History Three Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Lincoln Labs' electronic power engineers founded American Power Conversion in 1981. Neil E. Rasmussen (Sr. VP, CTO and Director of APC) Emanuel E. Landsman (VP) Ervin F. Lyon (Retired) At the time, the research and development efforts of these three men were focused on solar power. Over the next few years, government funding and incentives in the solar arena began to dry up. In response, APC shifted its focus to power protection, introducing its first UPS, the 750, in 1984. The need for capital to support this growing business was satisfied in July 1988 when APC became a publicly held

company. The stock, trading under the symbol "APCC," was priced at $.125 per share when adjusted for stock splits. It is well known that computer systems require back-up power solutions. It was quite common for a mainframe computer to have a large uninterruptible power supply (UPS) and generator installed in tandem. APC came at the market from a different perspective. Industry trends involving the personal computer made APC management realize that smaller UPSs were necessary for the market that included personal computers, PC servers and their networks. Over the years, APC has developed a global, end-toend, product offering targeted at four strategic application areas: Home/Small Office; Business Networks; Access

Providers and Data Centers & Facilities Internal product development has been augmented with strategic acquisitions to form an industry leading product portfolio. Throughout solutions. the world, the APC brand has become

Nature of HRM
Simply put, Human Resource Management (HRM) is a management function that helps managers to recruit, select, train and develop members for an organization. Obviously,

HRM is concerned with the people's dimension in organizations. Following are few definitions of HRM: 1. HRM is a series of integrated decisions that form the employment relationship; their quality contributes to the ability of the organizations and the employees to achieve their objective. 2. HRM is concerned with the people dimension in management. Since every organization is made up of people, acquiring their services, developing their skills, motivating them to higher levels of performance and ensuring that they continue to maintain their commitment to the organization are essential to achieving organizational objectives. This is true, regardless of the type of organization- government, business, education, health, recreation, or social action. 3. HRM is the of planning, the organizing, directing and controlling procurement, development,

compensation, integration, maintenance and separation of human resources to the end that individual, organizational, and social objectives are accomplished. These definitions of HRM can be summarized in the following points: 1.) Organizations are not mere bricks, mortar,

machineries or inventories. They are people. It is the

people who staff and manage organizations.


2.) HRM involves the application of management functions

and principles. The functions and principles are applied to acquisitioning, developing, maintaining, and remunerating employees in organizations. 3.) Decisions relating to employees must be integrated. Decisions on different aspects of employees must be consistent with other human resource (HR) decisions.
4. Decisions made must influence the effectiveness of an

organization. Effectiveness of an organization must result in betterment of services to customers in the form of high-quality products supplied at reasonable costs.
5. HRM

functions

are

not

confined

to

business

establishments only. They are applicable to nonbusiness organizations, too, such as education, health care, recreation, and the like.

Scope of HRM
The scope of HRM is indeed vast. All major activities in the working life of a workerfrom the time of his or her entry into an organization until lie or she leavescome under the purview of HRM. Specifically, the activities included areHR planning, job analysis and design, recruitment and selection, orientation and placement, training and development,

performance appraisal and job evaluation, employee and executive remuneration, motivation and communication, welfare, safety and health, industrial relations (IR) and the like. For the sake of convenience, we can categorize all these functions into seven sections (i) (ii) (iii) (iv) (v)
(vi)

Employee hiring, Employee and executive remuneration, Employee motivation, Employee maintenance, IR, and Prospects of HRM (see Fig.1).

Fig.1 Scope of HRM Human resource management is a process of bringing people and organizations together so that the goals of each are met. It is that part of the management process which is concerned with the management of human resources in an organization. It tries to secure the best from people by winning their whole hearted cooperation. In short, it may be defined, as the art of procuring, developing and maintaining competent workforce to achieve the goals of an organization in an efficient and effective manner. In other words, it can be said that human resource management is concerned with people at work and their relationships with each other.

CONCLUSION

With the overall study of the above industrial profiles, products and competitors of different industries we had come to a conclusion that Parle and Britannia both are the

top selling brands of the India. Both Parle and Britannia are the competitors. The total production of biscuits in India is estimated to be around 30 lakh MT, the organized sector accounts for 65% and the unorganized sector accounts for 35% of the total industry volume.

Parle Products Pvt. Ltd : Established In 1929, company has factories in Mumbai, Bangalore, Bahadurgarh in Haryana and Neemrana in Rajasthan, Additionally, Parle Products also has 7 manufacturing units and 51 manufacturing units on contract. Company has about approximate market share of 30-35% of the total biscuit market. Parle-G accounts for the major volume turnover it accounts for approximately 80% of the total biscuit tonnage for the company. Key Products : Parle - G , Hide and Seek ,Krackjack ,Hide & Seek Milano ,Magix ,Digestive Marie ,Monaco ,Parle Marie ,Kreams ,Milk Shakti ,Parle 20-20 Cookies ,Golden arcs ,Nimkin ,Kreams Gold ,Chox ,Monaco Jeera

Britannia Industries Ltd. : Net sales for FY 2008-09 are Rs 3,112.2 Cr. For FY 07-08 biscuits recorded sales of Rs. 2,329.9 Cr. Key Products Tiger, Good Day, Bourbon, 50-50, Treat, Milk Bikis, Marie Gold, NutriChoice, Timepass, Little Hearts

In the case of Parle-G brand, the researcher found that its the taste, which contributed towards the customers brand loyalty. Parle-Gs long presence in the market didnt have much impact on the consumers brand choice, rather it was the taste that deferred customers from switching to the other brands of glucose biscuits. The Parle-G customers are not against consuming the Tiger brand provided they get the

same quality taste as that of the Parle-G brand. They pointed out that the Tiger brand has a little lower milky taste and is a little sweeter than it should be. Thus, the company must maintain the price and concentrate on the brand taste to take maximum advantage of this opportunity. Also, marketing efforts are required to make the consumers aware of the brands price and make them more of nutritionconscious so that they can understand the Glucose H-Force Biscuit concept. Talking about Britannia after going thick on the thing, now time is to make a complete picture. While making a product a SKU (Stock Keeping Unit) of the shop retailers think about the GMROI (Gross Margin Return On Investment) and they promote the brand which provide them highest. They expect return in the form of profit margin, company schemes, window display and references of the shop. Among these, company schemes make the differences and are the highest source of motivation after profit margin. Retailing demands a constant push from the company. Marketer needs to use advertising and brand building strategies to address the discerning buyers and retail push to in different buyers. The manufacturer should understand consumer behavior because retailers can't help quality and price. It is only up to dealers said it is demand they sell

Britannia 42% agree that at retail shop it is brand popularity, which determine the purchase of biscuit. There is a greater need to understand the retailer behavior considering them as a team working for the company may help them to be attached to the company. There should be feeling of belonging to the company in inner of the retailers. Setting values club for retailers so that they may exchange views with the company and help in understanding consumer behavior. APC has a unique position in the world APC products. It is one of the profiteering companies in the country. The company will have good future and exciting things happening today in the field of power electronics and like any other adventure.
