Probation period
The word probation simply means, “testing” or “proof” and probationer
is a person who is on trial.

“A process or period in which a person's fitness, as for work or

membership in a social group, is tested.”

Basically almost every organization recruits young or first time

employees on probation. GEPCO hire Officers (Grade-17 and above) on
1-year probation period and Officials or Operations on 3-year
probation period for testing his/her abilities. If during probation period
employee does not fulfill the requirements of the organization then trial
period may be extended or organization may fire the employee from the
organization due to his/her unsatisfactory performance. At the end of
probation period, if employee’s performance is satisfactory then employee
automatically considered to be a permanent employee of the

Promotion criteria
“The act of promoting or the fact of being promoted; advancement.”
”Encouragement of the progress, growth, or acceptance of
something; furtherance.”

But here in GEPCO promotion of an employee from one scale to another

scale is not performance based. It is normally depends upon employee
whether he/she applied for it or not. It is further based upon four factors

1. 5-year experience
2. Seat availability
3. Passed departmental exam
4. Pre-promotion training

In above factors the most important is the availability of seat because

without it promotion is impossible.

Promotion Exams

a. All promotion exams for various category of WAPDA offrs and staff
up to Grade 19 will be conducted by Director Exam.
b. Minimum Pass Percentage for Prom Exam is 50%. All those who do
not qualify Prom Exam in three attempts in three consecutive
years would be declared unfit for further prom and recommended

on calendar year basis by 15 Oct each year. There must be one
exam each for Grade 16, 17, 18 & 19. Schedule for the year 2001
are at Anx F to F2.
d. All Prom Exam result on finalization will be put up to Chairman in
summarized from for each DISCO/Wing. The result must be
compiled within 4 weeks and published.
e. It is responsibility of every offrs/staff to apply and qualify in
concerned prom exam. They must apply timely and appear in the
prom exam.
f. All offrs/staff will get maximum of three chances to qualify in prom
exam in three successive years. All those who fail to appear will
lose one chance every time/year. No exemption will be given even
on medical grounds.
g. In the past there has been practice to charge Rs.50/- and Rs.20/-
from offrs and staff respectively as Exam fee. This fee is
immediately dispensed with and in future no amount will be
charged from WAPDA employee.
h. All the pre-requisite for promotion exam including tech/civil
education, minimum/maximum service and any other criteria be
also reflected in the schedule by Director Exam.

"The act, business, or system of insuring.”
“Coverage by a contract binding a party to indemnify another
against specified loss in return for premiums paid.”

Business is not free from risk of loss. Many business units face risk but
some of these suffer the losses. The business units depend upon
insurance companies for sharing the risk of loss while the insurance
companies depend upon other business units for successful working.
Insurance in GEPCO:

Gepco offer GLI (Group Life Insurance) to all of its employees including

 Officers
 Officials
 Operations

Life insurance is a plan under which large groups of individuals can

equalize the burden of loss from death by distributing funds to the
beneficiaries of those who die.

The insurance here is centralized and is provided by the State Life

Insurance Company. The insurance premium is deducted from the
salary of every employee monthly and contributed to a common fund.
The management of insurance companies uses the fund in such a way
that there is reasonable return on it. The insurance company can pool,
share and spread the risk of loss.
The amount of insurance premium contributed by the employees varies
from scale to scale. This amount ranges from 29____290.
In case of any extra-ordinary/uncertain circumstances, State Life
Insurance Company that ranges from 70,000(min)____5,20,000(max)
pays the insured amount.

Health and safety program

Performance appraisal
“Performance appraisal is the end of a process that goes on
all the time - a process that is based on good communication
between manager and employee.”

“ The assessment of an employee's effectiveness, usually as

undertaken at regular intervals.”

In simple words performance appraisal means evaluating an employee’s

current or past performance relative to the person’s performance

The Appraisal process in GEPCO:

1. Setting work standards.

2. Assessing the employee’s actual performance relative to these
3. Providing feedback to the employee with the aim of motivating that
person to eliminate deficiencies.
1. Appraisals provide information upon which organization
make promotion and salary decisions.

2. They provide an opportunity to review his or her work

related behavior.

3. Appraisal helps us to better manage and improve firm’s


Appraising Steps:
In GEPCO performance appraisal involves three steps
 Define the job
 Appraise performance
 Provide feedback
Defining the job means making sure you and your subordinate agree on
his or her duties and job standards.
Appraise performance means comparing your subordinate’s actual
performance to the standard that have been set.
The performance appraisal usually requires one or more feedback
sessions. Here there is a discussion about the subordinate’s performance
and progress, and make plans for any development required.
In GEPCO the ACR (Annual Confidential Report) of an employee is
prepared annually. Next senior officer prepares this performance
appraisal report.

Flaws in practice
 It is the major problem faced by the consumers that the cable
provided by the department is usually damaged and destroyed
after almost the period of two years. The wires are seen hanging in
the streets and roads. GEPCO should take special care to handle
this problem so as to facilitate and reduce the danger of death
through exposed wires.

 In HR department, the work is not computer based. There is a file

system (manual work) even for a vary little task there must be a
written piece of paper. It causes time wastage and slows down the
process of work.

 There is a lack of educated employees.

 They did not made plans for the refreshment of employees just like
recreational trips.

Human Engineering

Human Engineering
Communication, an essential element measuring the efficiency of an
organization is functioning smoothly, here in GEPCO. Communication is
telephony. A significant number of telephones are installed in the
company to ensure hundred percent links with management. There are
also face-to-face discussions between managers and subordinates on
various issues or matters.

After studying the workplace design we come to know that they create a
healthy environment in which they work together in groups as a team
and efficiently accomplish effective tasks. There is overall a good
relationship between boss and subordinates.

Suggestions and Recommendations

 Large organizations, usually, contains procurement/purchase unit

which increases its efficiency, effectiveness and economy. A
complete purchase unit should be established for purchase
purposes with proper scrutiny.

 Medical facility, medical bills, rent assessment cases of private

building to be hired by company, welfare cases including marriage,
widow’s welfare grant, educational scholarships, advances and
purchase for offices are managed by a single official. Another
person deputed for this will ease the situation.
 Public relation is, now, an essential tool for propagation of
performance of an organization. All services and welfare activities
should be made public after a regular span of time through print
and electronic media. Cable broadcasting is common now,
everywhere in company premises. Most of cable operators are
using WAPDA poles for transmission of their cables. This
propagation by cable networks can be used for shut down notice,
and for other important announcements of welfare activities. This
may increase the efficiency of company and moral of employee,
ultimately. WASA is successfully using this technique.

 A pragmatic and rational policy is required for allotment of cellular

phones to officers.

 Networking down to sub-division level will make the administration

effective, boosting its efficiency and making it economical.

 Monthly report should be demanded from all administration unit

and admin directorate about their work efficiency. This will
enhance the work quality.
