Hi Amritraj/Sonjeeb,

Well regarding training of newcomers, why not follow the process of "Mentoring"- which is a common practice with large PSUs. In Mentoring Process a new employee which is called as "mentee" undergoes a detailed, long structured mentoring process under a supervisor called as "mentor". This is process is generally used as a part of the training process which is for a 1 year duration. I will send you both a detailed project of how mentoring system works in an organisation. Send me a test mail at

Amritraj - you can also use various movie based training programmes for motivation & team building sessions. One training programme that i attended was a Motivational training based on the movie " CHAK DE". Various cut of clips were shown to us which can be related to conflict, team building, team spirit , motivation, diversity in an organisation. What i have experienced from this training session is that the audience can relate more to a movie based training programmes.

Would like to have some tips to motivate counter sales people for FMCG companies which you see in various malls /shoping centres. These people are generally 10+2 passout or pursuing 1st year graduation. There is a very high attrition rate among these people as they tend to switch their jobs even for a thousand rupees hike.

Hello Everybody,
I am glad to see that there has been a flutter of activity in this forum.Good-lets keep it up.
With the North East Industrial Promotion Policy being effected there has been some investment in the region.
Consequently industry and the service sector has shown interst (though limited) in Assam.
HR-including IR Personnel could share issues/promblems/innovations/practices typical to this region.
So keep posting;-at some stage we can also consider a Get together/Workshop/for exchange of ideas on HR IR.
I can volunteer space in Guwahati for a session.

Hi All,
Two more people added, gr8. Pl keep posting all your queries related to HR.
Sanjib -- regarding the get together workshop it would be very difficult as we all are scattered across India. Lets make it a common practice to discuss all our queries in Local user group.

Hi Sonjeeb!

With reference to ur query about high attrition rate in counter sales.

Few things has to be taken in to consideration.

My observations are

 They are there to make extra money.

 Itís a freedom, they get to be with the same age, group.

 A sense of pride to be associated with a reputed brand.

 Their ability to mingle with people while selling discussing, while conducting demo.

 Any progress (successful selling, successful demo) is a sense of achievement, increases self-esteem, confidence.

But as time goes by due to family pressure, studies, and change of priority people tend to leave. (These jobs are generally temporary- I do not know how ur systems works)

The best way to keep them longer according to me is

 Performance based incentives. -SPOT INCENTIVES. (it can be small or big- e.g. like a mikey mouse tie from Allen Solley)

 Create team, groups- display their scores

 Do formal announcements of their performances may be in the after noon and evening.

 Ask them what do they want- something that can be give within ur budget.

Conduct briefing before the start of the day. De-briefing is important at the end of the day to analyze the performance for that day.

Tool box meeting is important to reorganize or to strategize for the remaining day.

I could come out of few things that I could think. May be others can give tips to Mr. Sonjeeb to retain people.

Bottom line "Get down to their level to understand them what they want." they have raw power to work hard and earn. Utilize that to make them perform.
