Dear Bhairavi,

Organization restructuring happens when the reporting hierarchy of a company changes.

After organization restructuring certain groups will report to different departments, and some departments may be newly created or disappear altogether.

If the org chart has changed shape then organization restructuring has occurred.

There is no need for people to be hired or fired for a organization restructuring to happen.I suppose you are talking about API units. At plant Level We may have Plant Head. Under him different departments work.

The Major departments :


Quality Control

Quality Assurance





Accounts &Finance

Purchase & SCM




All the above departments' HODs report to Plant Head. But it is important to note that there is Administrative and functional Reporting.

Like All HODs report to Plant Head but their functional reporting remains at corporate level i.e to VP(HR), VP(projects)etc.......................

In the APIs the reporting relationship of Quality Departments must be directly to Corporate Quality Head. As per the GMP Guidlines they are independent identity from the plants.

As per grades are concerned, you can group your employees as :

GI Directors

G2 GM to VPs

G3 AGM and DGM

G4 Mangers and Sr.Managers

G5 Asstt.Managers to Deputy Managers

G6 Executives, Engineers and Asstt. Engineers

G7 All staff upto Sr.Officers

G8 Workers i.e Electricians,Attendants ,Operators etc

For Job rolles you should have Job Descriptions. You can group in production processes you have Chemists.You can group them. But Chemists working on the production process and working in the clean room shall have different job descriptions.

For better utilisation of human resources you can fill the manpower gaps by internal adjustments or rotations.

Shifts :Since API processes have to be run continuouly, the plants have to work 24 hrs.So we have to make shift workings as per shift schedules.

Most of the organisations work on persentage basis as per increments and rewards are concerned.But this system is not good,because high salaried employees get more amount and less salaried employees get less amount. To resolve this issue you may have different increment slab systems for different category of employees.
