Dear CiteHR Friends,

We have newly generated ID Cards for all employees of all branches across India. The design of the ID card is:
Front Side: Company Logo, Company Name, Photo of the Employee, Name of the Employee, Employee Code Number.
Back Side: Office Address, Office Phone Number, Office Website, Office Fax Number.

I have not mentioned any Employee Designation because I thought it may make a barrier to take part in any activity. Eg: In many cases corporate clients do not welcome executives to interact with them rather they ask for Manager or top level person to interact with them.
Sometimes peons are sent for collectins as collection executive and hence we cannot mention "Peon" in ICard.

Some top management officers are now asking to mention the designation as they are claiming that an ID card without designation is of no use. which is really not possible beacause if I change mention the designation for 1 person, immediately the other person will be asking for such change and thereby all the employees will demand so and it would be a big massacre. I am the only person handling all the HR activities for 100+ employees all over india branches and changing all the cards is not possible. Please suggest me what to do? What can I say the reasons behind not mentioning designation in ID Card? If I say the above reason no one will hear me.

Please help.

Thank you Sarita for your immediate reply. But our Departmental Heads are not hearing these reasons. They are just saying that if we do not mention designation it means that the Icard doesnt hold any power and is useless.

hai, You have include employee id or code number which itself tells about the designation and designation should not be included in the ID card which will demorale an employee

You shouldn't include designation in ID card. Generally companys dont use designation in ID card. In our company i dont mention desgination in ID card beacuse we promote staffs each 6-12 months , that time you cant issue one more ID card with new designation. U can tell this reason to your higher authority. You have mentioned Employee ID in the card, thats more than enough.

I understood your problem which i faced early of my carrier, mentioning designation causes demoracle of employee's attittude. It is phychologically depressing of an emplyee while working place
1)If it is in same cadre ex. 2 emplyees fully talanted working together in same project how would u give designation, if designation has lesser priority of other person, that person wouldn't contribute his performance.
2) Appying superiority,
3) Inferiority complex and etc.
it is better to avoid designation
You should avoid id cards for Top level MGT,

Dear friends
It is better not to issue the ID card with designation. Because the designation will change frequently for the lower level people, some times for staff level also. If the Manager will become Sr.Manager later on. Then you have to change the ID card according to the promotions. It is not possible.
Another thing. We have received a letter from the Factory inspectorate to issue ID card for all the employees. The format is as follows
01. Name of the worker :
02. Father's/Husband's name:
03. Date of Birth :
04. Address Permanent :
Present :
05. Nature of employment :Permanent/Temporary/Contract
06. Blood group :
07. Date of issue :
08. date of Expiry :
Signature of Holder Issuing Authority
I think this information is enough for you
