  • 5. CHAPTER - IICOMPANY PROILE 5
  • 6. Hindustan Unilever Limited (HUL) is Indias largest Fast Moving Consumer GoodsCompany, touching the lives of two out of three Indians with over 20 distinct categories inHome & Personal Care Products and Foods & Beverages. The company’s Turnover is Rs.17,523 crores (for the financial year 2009 - 2010)HUL is a subsidiary of Unilever; one of the world’s leading suppliers of fast movingconsumer goods with strong local roots in more than 100 countries across the globe withannual sales of about €40 billion in 2009 Unilever has about 52% shareholding in HUL.Hindustan Unilever was recently rated among the top four companies globally in the list of“Global Top Companies for Leaders” by a study sponsored by Hewitt Associates, inpartnership with Fortune magazine and the RBL Group. The company was ranked numberone in the Asia-Pacific region and in India.The mission that inspires HULs more than 15,000 PWE’S, including over 1,400 managers, isto help people feel good, look good and get more out of life with brands and services that aregood for them and good for others. It is a mission HUL shares with its parent company,Unilever, which holds about 52 % of the equity.In the summer of 1888, visitors to the Kolkata harbour noticed crates full of Sunlight soapbars, embossed with the words "Made in England by Lever Brothers". With it, began an eraof marketing branded Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG).Soon after followed Lifebuoy in 1895 and other famous brands like Pears, Lux and Vim.Vanaspati was launched in 1918 and the famous Dalda brand came to the market in 1937.In 1931, Unilever set up its first Indian subsidiary, Hindustan Vanaspati ManufacturingCompany, followed by Lever Brothers India Limited (1933) and United Traders Limited(1935). These three companies merged to form HUL in November 1956; HUL offered 10%of its equity to the Indian public, being the first among the foreign subsidiaries to do so. 6
  • 7. Unilever now holds 52.10% equity in the company. The rest of the shareholding is distributedamong about 360,675 individual shareholders and financial institutions.The erstwhile Brooke Bonds presence in India dates back to 1900. By 1903, the companyhad launched Red Label tea in the country. In 1912, Brooke Bond & Co. India Limited wasformed. Brooke Bond joined the Unilever fold in 1984 through an international acquisition.The erstwhile Liptons links with India were forged in 1898. Unilever acquired Lipton in1972 and in 1977 Lipton Tea (India) Limited was incorporated.Ponds (India) Limited had been present in India since 1947. It joined the Unilever foldthrough an international acquisition of Chesebrough Ponds USA in 1986.Since the very early years, HUL has vigorously responded to the stimulus of economicgrowth. The growth process has been accompanied by judicious diversification, always inline with Indian opinions and aspirations.The liberalisation of the Indian economy, started in 1991, clearly marked an inflexion inHULs and the Groups growth curve. Removal of the regulatory framework allowed thecompany to explore every single product and opportunity segment, without any constraintson production capacity.Simultaneously, deregulation permitted alliances, acquisitions and mergers. In one of themost visible and talked about events of Indias corporate history, the erstwhile Tata Oil MillsCompany (TOMCO) merged with HUL, effective from April 1, 1993. In 1996, HUL and yetanother Tata company, Lakme Limited, formed a 50:50 joint venture, Lakme UnileverLimited, to market Lakmes market-leading cosmetics and other appropriate products of boththe companies. Subsequently in 1998, Lakme Limited sold its brands to HUL and divested its50% stake in the joint venture to the company.HUL formed a 50:50 joint venture with the US-based Kimberly Clark Corporation in 1994,Kimberly-Clark Lever Ltd, which markets Huggies Diapers and Kotex Sanitary Pads. HULhas also set up a subsidiary in Nepal, Unilever Nepal Limited (UNL), and its factoryrepresents the largest manufacturing investment in the Himalayan kingdom. The UNL factorymanufactures HULs products like Soaps, Detergents and Personal Products both for thedomestic market and exports to India. 7
  • 8. The 1990s also witnessed a string of crucial mergers, acquisitions and alliances on the Foodsand Beverages front. In 1992, the erstwhile Brooke Bond acquired Kothari General Foods,with significant interests in Instant Coffee. In 1993, it acquired the Kissan business from theUB Group and the Dollops Ice-cream business from Cadbury India.As a measure of backward integration, Tea Estates and Doom Dooma, two plantationcompanies of Unilever, were merged with Brooke Bond. Then in 1994, Brooke Bond Indiaand Lipton India merged to form Brooke Bond Lipton India Limited (BBLIL), enablinggreater focus and ensuring synergy in the traditional Beverages business. 1994 witnessedBBLIL launching the Walls range of Frozen Desserts. By the end of the year, the companyentered into a strategic alliance with the Kwality Ice-cream Group families and in 1995 theMilk food 100% Ice-cream marketing and distribution rights too were acquired.Finally, BBLIL merged with HUL, with effect from January 1, 1996. The internalrestructuring culminated in the merger of Ponds (India) Limited (PIL) with HUL in 1998.The two companies had significant overlaps in Personal Products, Speciality Chemicals andExports businesses, besides a common distribution system since 1993 for Personal Products.The two also had a common management pool and a technology base. The amalgamation wasdone to ensure for the Group, benefits from scale economies both in domestic and exportmarkets and enable it to fund investments required for aggressively building new categories.In January 2000, in a historic step, the government decided to award 74 per cent equity inModern Foods to HUL, thereby beginning the divestment of government equity in publicsector undertakings (PSU) to private sector partners. HULs entry into Bread is a strategicextension of the companys wheat business. In 2002, HUL acquired the governmentsremaining stake in Modern Foods.In 2003, HUL acquired the Cooked Shrimp and Pasteurised Crabmeat business of theAmalgam Group of Companies, a leader in value added Marine Products exports.HUL launched a slew of new business initiatives in the early part of 2000’s. Project Shaktiwas started in 2001. It is a rural initiative that targets small villages populated by less than5000 individuals. It is a unique win-win initiative that catalyses rural affluence even as itbenefits business. Currently, there are over 45,000 Shakti entrepreneurs covering over100,000 villages across 15 states and reaching to over 3 million homes. 8
  • 9. In 2002, HUL made its foray into Ayurvedic health & beauty centre category with the Ayushproduct range and Ayush Therapy Centres.Hindustan Unilever Network, Direct to home business was launched in 2003 and thiswas followed by the launch of ‘Pureit’ water purifier in 2004.In 2007, the Company name was formally changed to Hindustan Unilever Limited afterreceiving the approval of share holders during the 74th AGM on 18 May 2007. Brooke Bondand Surf Excel breached the the Rs 1,000 crore sales mark the same year followed by Wheelwhich crossed the Rs.2, 000 crore sales milestone in 2008.On 17th October 2008, HUL completed 75 years of corporate existence in India. 9

  • 11. WHAT DO WE MEAN BY TRANING AND EFFECTIVENESS?Training is an important factor in all firm’s business strategy, but firms don’t assess theimpact of training programme over the PWE’S all the time. Training is effective only if itproduces desired outcome. When the organization is implementing a training programme,there should be an ideal forum on which the evaluation scheme can be build and assessmentof effectiveness of training and development activities can be done. The article elucidates theimpact of an effective training programme on the career growth and development of PWE’S.The author has also put forward some suggestions for increasing the effectiveness of thetraining that will help the organization to step into a bright future.Training and Development-Intensifying business performance is an expedition, not a destination. The success of businessoperations depends upon the ups and downs of the employee performances. Hence the HRmanagers started looking for the methods to boost the performance and efficiency of itsworkforce to carry out the work today and to train them for meeting tomorrow’s goal.Training programmes had developed many years back, but now-a-days, it became a crucialfactor in companies with certain objectives in mind. Training and development practicesshould boost up performance and develop the skills, knowledge and expertise of the PWE’S.The vital objective of training is to build up right ability and capability in the labour force sothat they can perform to meet the needs, wants and expected returns of the employer.The training procedure comprises of three phases: 11
  • 12. Phase 1: Pre-training: - This may also be called as the preparation phase. The process startswith an identification of the circumstances requiring more efficient performance. A firm’sconcern prior to training lie primarily in four areas: Clarifying the precise objectives oftraining and what the organization expects to make use of the participants after training;selection of appropriate participants; building favourable expectations and inspiration in theparticipants before training; and planning for any changes that improved task performancerequires in addition to training.Phase 2: Training: - During the course of the training, participants focus their attention onthe new impressions that seem useful, thought-provoking and engaging. There is noguarantee that the participants will in fact learn what they have chosen. But the main reasonremains; trainees explore in a training situation what interests them, and a traininginstitution’s basic task is to offer the required opportunities.Phase 3: Post-Training: - This may be called as the “follow up” phase. When the trainees goback to job after attending the training, a practice of adapting change begins for each oneparticipated. The newly acquired skills and knowledge undergo modification to fit the workcondition. Participants may find their organizations offering support to use the training andalso the support for continuing contact with the training institution. On the other hand, theymay step into a quagmire of distrust. More effective behaviour of people on the job is theprime objective of the training process conducted by an organization as a whole.Assessment of Training- What is the Need?Corporate, today, expend large amount of money on imparting training and developmentpractices. But prior to spending such vast amount, they should analyze the need forconducting training to the workforce. There are chances in which firms can make mistakes ifthey are not assessing the training needs. An employee, for sure, requires training when he isfound to be not capable enough to meet the goals of the organization and when there is a gapbetween the current performance and expected performance. Meagreness in recital occurs dueto the lack of sufficient knowledge and expertise, monotonous management or any otherpersonal and official issues. All these problems spotted can be tackled by providing aneffective training programme to the right employee and at the right point of time. 12
  • 13. Training EffectivenessThe effectiveness of training is a measurement of learning. It is determined by comparingpost-test scores with pre-test scores and then measuring the net change. There are severalmethods to measure this—on a per-student basis, on a per-“skill point” base or on a per-dollarbasis. Let’s look at the skill-point base, which measures the cost of raising a student’s skill byone unit."This is dangerously wrong! Let me explain!The difference between a pre-test score and a post-test score can be for many reasons, severalof which may actually apply together. Without any root cause analysis to identify the causallinks between the different scores (pre-test and post-test) all you can truthfully say about thissituation is that the pre-test scores were X and the post-test scores were Y - you cannot sayWHY they are like this.This does NOT mean there is no link, just that you havent demonstrated one - and this iswhere evaluation practitioners get in to bother - yes, even if you follow Kirkpatrick orPhillips approach - you have to have PROOF when the CFO and CEO ask for it -CORRELATION IS NOT CAUSATION!!!A measurement of learning is not training effectiveness - its a measure of learning! You canlearn everything required, but fail to put it to require use and the required outcomes are notachieved. Training in organisations is ALMOST ALWAYS about achieving a betterperformance or capability than is currently available - its about OUTCOMES that favour thecustomer and the shareholder - its not about learning - thats a bonus (in my humbleopinion!).Generally effectiveness measures are defined in terms of the extent to which a set ofobjectives are met. It would be quite easy to have a large overlap here with efficiencymeasures.(Training) efficiency is generally defined as the number of units output for the number ofunits input. Taking a similar theme I suggest training efficiency can be measured severalwaysPRE- TRAINING GIVEN TO PWE: 13

And they are given full training on the ODPEC process of direct selling of the productthis process is explained below:ODPEC • O – OPENING A CALL • D – DEVELOPING THE NEED • P – PRESENTING A SOLUTION • E – ELIMINATING DOUBTS • C – CLOSING THE SALEOPENING THE CALL: - What is the importance of opening the call? - What would be its outcome??Are the customers compelled to allow all sales persons into their homes?? There would be atleast 3-5 sales persons knocking their doors for one or the other product. So why should thecustomer allow US?We say if we make 60 contacts we will be able to get 6 demos, i.e., 1 out of every 10customers convert into a prospect. Is this uniform with all PWEs?? We have PWEs who 14
  • 15. make 35 contacts and are able to generate 6 hot prospects but there are PWEs who make 60contacts but manage to get only 2-3 hot prospects. So this is where opening the call plays asignificant role.Can we have a mock session??(Make at least 5 PWEs with different LOS to do mock opening and ask the others to observeand tell what went right/wrong and if they were the customers whether they will allow thisPWE inside for further discussion)DO’sGood Morning Madam!!I am Firoz sabir coming from Pureit, Hindustan Lever Limited the makers of Surf, Hamam,and Ponds etc.“You could use one of the below Attention Grabbing Statements”I am here to tell you how you could get 5 liters of as safe as boiled water for just Re.1/- (OR)I am here to tell you as to how you could safeguard your family from waterborne diseaseslike Typhoid, Cholera, Diarrhea (OR)I am here to tell you as to how you could get as safe as boiled water without hassles ofboiling, power and continuous supply of tap waterMay I know what water you use for drinking purposes??Developing the Need:Why should we develop the needs of a customer??There are 3 components which makes a person to buy a product. It is “MAN”M – MoneyA – AuthorityN – Need“A person will buy a product if he has the money, the authority to buy and also has a need forit”. That is why we say Developing the need is important as it plays a vital role in thedecision making process. - Is there a need for pure drinking water in Raipur City? 15
  • 16. - Do people in Raipur City face problems in getting safe drinking water? - Are there many cases of water borne diseases in Raipur City? NEED CURRENT PROPOSED METHOD SOLUTION Figure.2.1There is a need and right now they are following one method or the other to achieve theirneed. How do we make them feel that we are here to identify their needs, the problems facedin the current method and give a solution?There could be different types of need bases questions depending on the type of drinkingwater they use. Let’s take a common example of a customer who boils water.NEED BASED QUESTIONS: 1. How many times you boil water in a day? 2. What time of the day you boil water? 3. How much time you boil the water? 4. How many days once you change your gas? 5. If you are not boiling for example, how many days will your gas last? 6. What do you think could be your approximate saving on this?After making them self analyze their needs and the problems they are facing thereof we needto start off with proposing a solution to them.Proposing the Solution:Normal scenario what happens?? We start off with opening our demo kits and start of withsaying this is Hindustan lever Pureit. The capacity is 18 lts. Top chamber…… 16

If we do all these 100% picture perfect we would be able crack good sales through coldcalls!!Happy Selling!!POST-TRAINING GIVEN TO PWE:Model 2: ‘Project TraineeProgram Duration: 30 days (8 days of standard induction + 22 days of OJT)INDUCTION PROGRAM FOR PWE (8 DAYS):Induction is a process of familiarizing the new recruits to the organization functioning so thatthey become productive in the least possible time; they are a means of honing the workforceto greater efficiency, precision, and perfection.Every business, large or small, needs a well-planned induction process. The induction processhas to provide all the information that new PWE’S and others need, and are able toassimilate, without being overwhelming or diverting them from the essential process ofintegration into a team.The ProcessThe term induction is generally used to describe the whole process whereby PWE’S blend inor acclimatize to their new jobs. The aim of the induction process is to help new PWE’Smake a smooth, positive adjustment to the workplace. Induction training is all about thebasics as well like: shift timings; holiday routine; casual/sick leave policy; location of thecafeteria; dress code; Health and Safety, Terminology, jargon, glossary, definitions of localterms, Organization overview and structure etc. etc.Induction enables the new employee to gain familiarity with the work environment and toacquire a sense of belonging that will build a commitment to the organization. 18
  • 19. A successful induction process has three objectives -Helps new PWE’S settle inHelps new PWE’S comprehend their responsibilities and what is expected of themEnsures the employer receives the benefit of the new employee as quickly as possibleAn induction process should also be;Flexible and interestingEmployee centredMeets equal opportunities requirementsThe Need for InductionRecruitment is an expensive business as it takes time, money and effort to find the rightpeople to join your company. Efficiently organized and delivered induction training will beyour new PWE’S first proper impression of you and your enterprise; this makes it an idealoccasion to reinforce their decision to come and work for you.The purpose of induction is to ensure the effective integration of staff into the organizationfor the benefit of both parties. Research has shown that a well planned induction programincrease staff retention. A well conducted induction ensures new hires are retained, and thensettled in speedily and comfortably in a constructive role.New PWE’S also need to understand the organizations goals, values and philosophy;personnel practices, ethics, integrity, corporate social responsibility and the job theyrerequired to do. An effective induction process shortens the time it takes to get the newemployee to settle down.An induction process is not simply for new PWE’S. The same benefits can be received bystaff who have been promoted or transferred or those who have returned from a long periodof absence.After induction of PWE they are given field knowledge by (OJT) on job training to PWEwhich is explain as given below:ON THE JOB TRAINING (22 DAYS): 19
  • 20. As the name implies, on the job training involves PWE’S training at their place or work.The most common methods of on the job training are:- Demonstration / instruction; showing the trainee how to do the job- Coaching - a more intensive method of training that involves a close working relationshipbetween an experienced employee and the trainee- Job rotation - where the trainee is given several jobs in succession, to gain experience of awide range of activities (e.g. a graduate management trainee might spend periods in severaldifferent departments)- Projects - PWE’S join a project team - which gives them exposure to other parts of thebusiness and allow them to take part in new activities. Most successful project teams are"multi-disciplinary"Advantages of on the job training- Generally more cost effective- Less disruptive to the business - i.e. PWE’S are not away from work- Training an employee in their own working environment, with equipment they are familiarwith and people they know can help they gain direct experience to a standard approved by theemployer- PWE’S may find that they have more confidence if they are supervised and guided as theyfeel they are doing the job right- PWE’S may feel more at ease being taught or supervised by people they know rather thancomplete strangers at an external training course- Managers or supervisors can assess improvement and progress over a period of time andthis makes it easier to identify a problem intervene and resolve problems quickly- On the job training is also productive, as the employee is still working as they are learning 20
  • 21. - As training progresses and the employee begins to feel more confident, this confidencewould allow them to work at a higher standard and ultimately be more productive- Training "on-the-job" provides an opportunity to get to know staff they might not normallytalk toDisadvantages of on the job training- Teaching or coaching is a specialist skill in itself; unless the trainer has the skills andknowledge to train, this would mean that the training will not be done to a sufficient standard- The trainer may not be given the time to spend with the employee to teach them properly,which would mean substandard training has been achieved and learning has only been halfdone- The trainer may possess bad habits and pass these on to the trainee CAREER LAUNCHER OF PWE:This can be explained as given below diagram. 21

In it we study thevarious steps that are generally adopted by a researcher in studying his research problemalong with the logic behind them. It is necessary for the researcher to know not only theresearch methods or techniques but also the methodology. 23
  • 24. It is well known fact that the most important step in marketing research process is to definethe problem. Choose for investigation because a problem well defined is half solved. Thatwas the reason that at most care was taken while defining various parameters of the problem.After giving through brain storming session, objectives were selected and the set on the baseof these objectives. A questionnaire was designed major emphasis of which was gatheringnew ideas or insight so as to determine and bind out solution to the problems.Purpose but the research objectives can be listed into a number of broad categories, asfollowing:-• To gain familiarity with a phenomenon or to achieve new insights into it. Studies with thisobject in view are termed as exploratory or formulate research studies.• To portray accurately the characteristics of a particular individual, situation or a group.Studies with this object in view are known as descriptive research studies.•To determine the frequency with which something occurs or with which it is associated withsomething else. Studies with this object in view are known as diagnostic research studies.DATA SOURCE Research included gathering both Primary and Secondary data. Primary data is thefirst hand data, which are selected a fresh and thus happen to be original in character. PrimaryData was crucial to know various customers and past consumer views about bikes and tocalculate the market share of this brand in regards to other brands. Secondary data are those which have been collected by someone else and whichalready have been passed through statistical process. Secondary data has been taken frominternet, newspaper, magazines and companies web sites.RESEARCH APPROACH The research approach was used survey method which is a widely used method fordata collection and best suited for descriptive type of research survey includes researchinstrument like questionnaire which can be structured and unstructured. Target population is 24
