Respected Seniors,

Kindly suggest steps need to take by HR professional for the follwing Scenario.

Scenario 1.

A Limited company which has a strict policies as follws,



1. Personal Mobile Not allowed insid te workplace. Employee has to deposit them at the gate Security.

2. 30 mins lunch break in 9 hrs of work.

3. No one is allowed to go out of the gate during working hours. only BD people with OD slip are allowed.

4. Each employee is allowed to have tea /cofee Twice a day ( 1 plastic cup each time not more)

5. Employees are not allowed to go out for Tea nor even allowed to get tea inside.

6. Smoking inside/ouside the premises is prohibitted during the work hours.

7. Employyes are not allowed to have non Veg during the Working days.

8. employees higher then GM cadre are exceptionals.

Now two employee who have joined one as accounts executiveand other as HR are not feeling cofortable to cope up.

What would you suggest ?

Scenario 2.

In another Limited company the rules are very people friendly. quite opposite to the scenario one.

But the Management have follwing concerns,

1. People spend more time on breaks.

2. People go our for smoke/ tea very often.

3. Cost to company f or providing tea is quite high.

4. Employees dont value senior management as they have the equal previllages.

5. People spend more time on mobile phone rather work.

6. Company canteen area looks meshy & smells bad due to non veg food particle.

What would you suggest ?

Dear Sanjib Jena in my point of view a employee dilivered best result. If company provided more benefits. Regds Pulkit

I would suggest it should be a mix match in this way

1. Personal Mobile with camera must be deposited at the security gate and rest to be allowed inside the workplace. But there should be a policy that mobile phone to be kept on silent and people other then business development not to be allowed to spend more time on mobile on unofficial calls. If found warning to be given as this effects operation of business. Mobile phone should not be allowed where security is concern for the business and data theft is possible through USB Ports.

2. 30 mins lunch break in 9 hrs of work is justified but additional half hour break which can be taken any time for 5 mins , 10 mins to be allowed in the whole day

3. No one is allowed to go out of the gate during working hours.

4. Each employee is allowed to have tea /cofee Twice a day ( 1 plastic cup each time not more). If need more employee should pay for it.

5. Employees should be allowed to go out for Tea and they should be allowed to get tea inside.

6. Smoking inside the premises must be prohibited. Outside premises in the balance half hour its employees personal decision.

7. Employees are not allowed to have non Veg in the office premises, but employees can have it outside premises.

8. Employees must value senior management and they cannot be given equal privileges but friendly relation is must.

[QUOTE=sanjib.jena;1864305]Respected Seniors,

Kindly suggest steps need to take by HR professional for the follwing Scenario.

Scenario 1.

A Limited company which has a strict policies as follws,



1. Personal Mobile Not allowed insid te workplace. Employee has to deposit them at the gate Security.

Absolutely correct and you can not call this as Strict. People must understand. In days when mobile phones were not available, how did people cope . There used to be phones only on the tables of senior executives and when there are urgent phone calls to be made, people were allowed to make calls. Today mobiles are not used for emergency but used for entertainment hence such rules.

2. 30 mins lunch break in 9 hrs of work.

This is what is required Absolutely in order

3. No one is allowed to go out of the gate during working hours. only BD people with OD slip are allowed.

What is wrong in this policy> Infact noone will be allowed to go out without a gate pass

4. Each employee is allowed to have tea /cofee Twice a day ( 1 plastic cup each time not more)

Generally many organisations follow this rulke I recommend little lenient policy on this.

5. Employees are not allowed to go out for Tea nor even allowed to get tea inside.

Employees can not be allowed to go out to have coffee ot tea outside They have come to work and not to enjoy

6. Smoking inside/ouside the premises is prohibitted during the work hours

Smoking inside can be prohibited. I do not know how they prohibit outside?

If an employee is meeting a client, then Organisation can say, as a policy the employee shall not smoke. Otherwise smoking outside can not be prohibited and the management has no control over this behaviour

.

7. Employyes are not allowed to have non Veg during the Working days.

I presume that they do not provide non veg in the canteen> It is absolutely perfect Many organisations do not allow this.

8. employees higher then GM cadre are exceptionals.

Employees above GMs can be exceptions for cofee But can not be an exception for smoking and non veg food. If they are treated differently for smoking and eating non veg inside the factory, then you need to provide this for all

1. Personal Mobile Not allowed insid te workplace. Employee has to deposit them at the gate Security.

This is the norm in ITES under ISO 27001 (information security) and in factories too where mobiles can compromise on workplace safety.

families or friends have access to landlines in office in case of emergency..

firefighters/ hospital staff outside india too dont carry mobile phones on official duty.

2. 30 mins lunch break in 9 hrs of work.

this is fair enough if you get two tea breaks too.

i have myself worked on this schedule for 3 years without fail...

3. No one is allowed to go out of the gate during working hours. only BD people with OD slip are allowed.

in certain factories to curb pilferage of goods/ wastage of time, this is being followed.

4. Each employee is allowed to have tea /cofee Twice a day ( 1 plastic cup each time not more)

i will not name the company but one of my colleagues used to work for a lala company where total number of tea cups in a month was calculated and deducted before making salary payment..

during my expat assignments, i noticed you have to pay and have tea in cafetaria..

having stayed in India for long, it used to pinch me too

5. Employees are not allowed to go out for Tea nor even allowed to get tea inside.

banning of food stuffs inside the workplace is fair on grounds of pest control/ damage to goods in transit/ health and safety issues...

as long as people adhere to allocated breaks, lack of freedom of movement is a non compliance of fundamental rights.

this is a major issue in china wherein walls are 14 feet high, army with machine guns patrol the perimeter, workers have to sleep in dorm and they are let out once in 24 hours.

6. Smoking inside/ouside the premises is prohibitted during the work hours.

on one hand we have companies which have smoke rooms like wipro spectramind..

but its a big no in manufacturing sector/ oil wells/ printing and dyeing units etc...

7. Employyes are not allowed to have non Veg during the Working days.

every owner's has whims and fancies, not fair..its difficult to change mindsets..

during my last assignment in saudi arabia, eating or drinking in public leads to prison during the holy month of ramadan..

its not India... all shops are closed during fasting times.. religious police "mutawah" patrol the streets/ offices

8. employees higher then GM cadre are exceptionals.

there are certain privileges which come in with rank.. people are allowed to smoke and drink inside their cabins...

but then they undermine the credibility of policies/ transparency/ trust in top mgmt...

Dear Members,
Please let the kid do his own project.
We help him now, and in future when he go for a job,then he goes in some company and then creates a policy like that in scenario one.
Please be smart enough, to read through the tact used by kid to get their assignment done through websites. Please let them break a sweat.
How can people be so naive?

This is perfect policy you are looking for.Dont treat your organization as a military school.people can never give better result in binding conditions but they only can perform in such conditions.

Dear Octavious, Thank you for suggestion, but to inform you that this is not a assignment rather a real time scenario of a organisation. regards, Sanjib
