Hi, Kindly help me that whether we can hire 2 employees as a general manager for one organization ? Need your suggestion on the above suggestion. Regards Divya
You can hire as many General Managers as per your requirements and management;s approval. There is no bar on the number.
If you have any other related query, you can put them here with details.
Thanks and regards.

Dear Divya,
Same designation for two persons is not a problem as such. For example, in the hotel industry, there are Banquet Managers. For convenience, they are given designation as Banquet Manager-1 and Banquet Manager-2 etc. They can have same reporting authority. In courier or logistic companies, there are many sales managers. However, each one has different sales responsibility like cargo sale, retail sale etc. Therefore, notwithstanding sameness in their designation, their area of responsibility should be different. There should not be overlap in any way.

It depends on the work demand and overload and also the company size.
Dear Divya ,
As Dinesh Sir has already enlighten you. Rights and duties, Work preferences reporting and authority should be properly delegated. Also many company's have GM for Every department (Viz GM HR, GM Finance, Etc) . As there is no point in hiring two authorities for the same work.

As explained by seniors there is nothing wrong in having two General Managers, however their work areas may get assigned so that they are not interfering with each other's work. You may have proper JD or geographical area assigned to remove any doubt. In case there is any statutory obligations to be discharged by them on behalf of employer, say as a manager under the Factories Act or some other legal provisions, then you may have to specify that in their work guidelines.

There should be clarity on their individual job roles. Their boundries of operation should be defined clearly; or else, there will be clash of jurisdiction, leading to ego clashes. As Mr. Divekar has mentioned above, while designating, apart from generic title as General Manager, their next related work should be made clearer by adding the next responsibility in terms of department or assignment. For Instance, General Manager - New Projects, and General Manager - Current Projects, General Manager - Business Development, General Manger - Exports..... depending upon the department, task,, responsibility etc.
Best wishes

Thank you all for your suggestions !!
