  • 1. 1 INTRODUCTION Not many of us are aware of the fact that the life insurance industry of India is as old as it is in any other part of the world. Oriental Life Insurance Company was the first Indian life insurance company, which was started in 1818 at Kolkata. And within a span of 100 to 150 years, the number grew more than 350 (over 250 in life and about 100 in non- life), mainly with regional focus, flourished all across the country. However, the Government of India, concerned by the unethical standards adopted by some players against the consumers, nationalized the industry in two phases in 1956 (life) and in 1972 (non-life). The insurance business of the country was then brought under two public sector companies, Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) and General Insurance Corporation of India (GIC). Subsequently with the economic reforms that were ushered in India in early nineties, the Government set up a Committee on Reforms (the Malhotra Committee) in April 1993 to suggest reforms in the insurance sector. The Committee recommended throwing open the sector to private players to usher in competition and bring more choice to the consumer. The objective was to improve the penetration of insurance as a percentage of GDP, which remains low in India even compared to some developing countries in Asia. Reforms were initiated with the passage of Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDA) Bill in 1999. IRDA was set up as an independent regulatory authority, which has put in place regulations in line with global norms. So far in the private sector, 12 life insurance companies and 9 general insurance companies have been registered. Till then insurance was kind of privilege or necessity ought to be meant for the high salaried and riches of this country. As also a necessity only for some in case they needed to ensure tax savings, tax manipulations etc. But with the coming of private players, rules of the game have changed. Never were common men so rigorously targeted. It is today an industry which is growing at the rate more than 25%. “In the last five years, the growth (of the Indian insurance industry) has been of the order of 25% plus.” And the remarkable point yet is that the penetration level is only 2%. “The Insurance penetration level (in India), which was always stuck near an average of 1.5%, has today crossed the 2% mark and is likely to get perched at about 3%.” Imagine the kind of potential it has for the years to come! May be this is one of the major reasons why almost all global players are too keen to be in India. Another could be the saturation of insurance markets in many developed economies. India has the low percentage and per capita penetration of Insurance Industry. Moreover, with the kind of GDP growth rate which is expected to be in the range of 8 to
  • 2. 1 10% for the next decade and the increasing level of education among the general public regarding insurance and related products, the insurance market can only head upwards. The current market size of non-life insurance industry is US $ 2 billion and is expected to reach US $ 10 billion. Similarly, in the life insurance sector, it is expected to grow from nearly US $ 3 billion to US $ 15 billion. The changes those have been bought in by privatization in the insurance sector can be categorized into followings; 1. New Market Development 2. New Product Development 3. Customer Centric Approach 4. New Channel Development New Market Development: It a logical step to look for new and newer markets when competition grows. Naturally, with as many as 16 players, latest being Bharti-AXA and six still in the offing, the competition has never been so intense. Advertising campaigns, awareness campaigns and other promotional tools players are ensuring that they make dent into right markets by educating prospects. The strategy to hunt for new markets has been aptly supplemented by new product offerings. New Product Development: There has been a plethora of new and innovative products offered by the new players, mainly from the stable of their international partners. The main concept underlying new product development has been of two kinds, Need-Based positioning development and Variety –Based development. Now, the customers have tremendous choice from a large variety of products from pure term (risk) insurance to unit-linked investment products. Customers are offered unbundled products with a variety of benefits as riders from which they can choose. More customers are buying products and services based on their true needs and not just traditional money-back policies, which is not considered very appropriate for long-term protection and savings. Customer Centric Approach: CRM is a buzz word so is the customer satisfaction. People are courteous, processes are being made simple. Customer is treated as king in true sense. Service, be it pre-selling or be it post-selling, is readily available at a click away! International best practices in service and operational efficiency has started to make an inward way giving away the bureaucratic, cumbersome difficulties. Albeit, the use of latest technologies have complimented the process even further. Trained and technically qualified sales force and advisors are now concentrating on sound financial
  • 3. 1 consultancy and need based selling. Prompt and accurate response and turnaround times in specific areas such as delivery of first policy receipt, policy document, premium notice, final maturity payment, settlement of claims etc. are some of the sea changes that this industry is experiencing. New Channel Development: Sales and distributions channels also have gone a paradigm shift. Till recently, Agents were the only mode of distribution of life insurance products. But today a number of innovative alternative channels are being utilized by insurance marketers such as bank assurance, brokers, the internet and direct marketing. It is predicted that the wide spread of bank branch network in India could lead to Bank assurance emerging as a significant distribution mechanism. However, as of today, agents still continue to be the main distribution channel. Some life insurance companies focusing on rural markets have gone one step further in adopting new innovative means of distributions. “Instead of appointing agents as is done typically, they have used gram- sevaks in different villages across the country to promote life insurance and act as their sales arm.” As the days pass off, we are likely to see many more actions in this arena. The Government is also keen to continue with its financial sector reforms. The insurance Industry is now hot and happening! The marketing wizards are breaking their heads to think for ideas to penetrate new markets, financial wiz-kids wracking their brains for new product categories and lot more actions are taking place even behind the scene. But whatever happens, one thing is for sure that the customers are going to be the greatest beneficiary of this revolution.
  • 4. 1 TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT SCENARIO IN INSURANCE SECTOR Favorable economic climate and number of other factors such as, growing urbanization, increasing consumerism, rise in the standard of living, increase in financial services for people living in rural areas, etc has increased the demand for wide range of financial products that has led to mutually beneficial growth to the banking sector and economic growth process. This was coincided by technology development in the banking operations. Today most of the Indian cities have networked banking facility as well as Internet banking facility. Some of the major players in the banking sector are State Bank of India, HDFC Bank, Citibank, ICICI Bank, Punjab National Bank, etc. In the Insurance sector also, rapid expansion has created about 5 lakh job opportunities approximately in the past five years. These openings are mainly in the field of insurance advisors or marketing agents. The eligibility criteria for these jobs is graduation with some experience in marketing or become insurance agents after completing school but this needs some relevant training. Earlier there were no training programs as such for insurance agents but on-the-job training only that was given once the new agent was appointed. But now the scenario has been changed, with the coming up of big players like ICICI Life Insurance, ICICI Lombard, HDFC Life Insurance, Tata AIG General Insurance, etc in this sector, people who've had some formal training are preferred while recruitment because it can be helpful in the insurance field. However, only the insurance degree in this field does not guarantee success. To be successful an agent must have strong interpersonal, networking, and communication skills. Number of opportunities in Banking and Insurance sector has increased than ever before. With this rapid expansion and coming up of major players like ICICI, HDFC, UTI, Bajaj Allianz, etc in the sector, the need of human resource development has increased

Operating from Mumbai, Aviva has an experienced team of fund managers and the range of fund options includes Unitised With-Profits Fund and seven Unit Linked funds: - Protector Fund, Secure Fund, Balanced Fund, Growth Fund,Enhancer Fund,Index Fund and Bond Fund. Questionnaire Analysis: Ovearall Experience: From the graph we conclude that employees at aviva were had a very good experience of training & development programme organised in their organisation. Most of the employees are haapy attending such training sessions because they get extra perks also for the same. The employees told that the company provides them free refreshments during the training and development programme.
  • 11. 1 TIMINGS OF THE TRAINING: Timing was somewhat a issue in these training programmes. These sessions were organised in after job period therefore the schedule of the employees become hectic.

AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT:
  • 12. 1 Technique is the factor of training programme on which the company should focus more for improvement. The employees gave feedback that to enhance the efficiency of this programme the training should be related to real life events rather than working in a closed classroom. The second issue for improvement was Mentors. The employees reported that some mentors in the training programme were too relaxed that they hardly bothered about the results of the programme. SATISFACTION AND PERFORMANCE APPRAISAL: The above graph showed that these programmes hardly show any effect on the satisfaction and performance of the employees. They attend these programmes just to have more perks. As we analyzed and talked with employees we found that they were very relaxed about these programmes.

  • 21. 1 NATIONAL INSURANCE CORPORATION National Insurance Company Limited was incorporated in 1906 with its Registered office in Kolkata. Consequent to passing of the General Insurance Business Nationalisation Act in 1972, 21 Foreign and 11 Indian Companies were amalgamated with it and National became a subsidiary of General Insurance Corporation of India (GIC) which is fully owned by the Government of India. After the notification of the General Insurance Business (Nationalisation) Amendment Act, on 7th August 2002, National has been de- linked from its holding company GIC and presently operating as a Government of India undertaking. National Insurance Company Ltd (NIC) is one of the leading public sector insurance companies of India, carrying out non life insurance business. Headquartered in Kolkata, NIC's network of about 1000 offices, manned by more than 16,000 skilled personnel, is spread over the length and breadth of the country covering remote rural areas, townships and metropolitan cities. NIC's foreign operations are carried out from its branch offices in Nepal and Hong Kong. Befittingly, the product ranges, of more than 180 policies offered by NIC cater to the diverse insurance requirements of its 10 million policyholders. Innovative and customized policies ensure that even specialized insurance requirements are fully taken care of. The paid-up share capital of National is Rs.100 crores. Starting off with a premium base of 500 million rupees (50 crores rupees) in 1974, NIC's gross direct premium income has steadily grown to 35236.7 million rupees (3523.67 crores rupees ) in the financial year 2005-2006. National transacts general insurance business of Fire, Marine and Miscellaneous insurance. The Company offers protection against a wide range of risks to its customers. The Company is privileged to cater its services to almost every sector or industry in the Indian Economy viz. Banking, Telecom, Aviation, Shipping, Information Technology, Power, Oil & Energy, Agronomy, Plantations, Foreign Trade, Healthcare, Tea, Automobile, Education, Environment, Space Research etc. While NIC has a significant market share in the non life insurance business all over the country, NIC has a large market presence in Northern and Eastern India making it the market leader in these two zones.
  • 22. 1 The steady growth in premium income has been commensurately matched by profits over the years. As of March 2006, NIC's general reserve stood at 11085.8 million rupees (1108.58 crores rupees) with an asset value of 138064.4 million rupees (13806.44 crores rupees) signaling strong financial fundamentals. No wonder than that NIC has been accorded “AAA/STABLE” financial strength rating by CRISIL rating agency, which reflects the highest financial strength to meet policyholders’ obligations. Two set of questionnaires designed for the same. One would be for the employees per se to understand their perceptions regarding the training and development practices of their organization in terms of relevance, regularity, effectiveness, adequacy of T & D etc. The other would be a list of open ended questions which would be addressing to the HR managers (in an interview) to understand the T & D initiatives taken by the organization and the kind of career progression which can happen in the finance function. Questionnaire analysis: Overall Experience: The overall experience of employees at NIC in T&D Sessions as represented by the above graph is above average. Most of the employees marked either Excellent or very good. There were some employees also who were not satisfied with the T&D Programmes and said that it is only a Time and Energy Waste. One of the employee quoted “We gain nothing from it”.
  • 23. 1 Timings: The Timings of the Training at NIC are a bit cumbersome. The company calls employees on their vacations for these T&D Sessions which make them incomfortable. Most of the employees disagree when asked about the convinience of the timings. Areas of Improvement: In NIC Technique is in the main focus of Area for Improvement. The employees reported that during classroom training Audio-Visual aids should also be provided for better learning and understanding.
  • 24. 1 Satisafaction and Performance Appraisal: As represented by the above graph the employees at NIC also have the same opinion as in every other organization that these T&D sessions have no impact on their performance. They all say but even then they attend it because sometime it is mandatory and sometimes for better perks

  • 27. 1 LIMITATIONS 1. It was not easy to get appointments as executives were not spared for such questionnaires. 2. We were not allowed to interact with the employees by the HR & Senior Managers in all the organizations and that is reflected in the number of filled questionnaires. 3. We could interact only with a few managers and tried to extract as much as information as possible. 4. Time was also a constraint. 5. Due to non-availability of appointments we have to analyze on the basis of telephonic calls. 6. Some of the appointments were cancelled at last moment due to busy schedule of executives. 7. Due to Insurance sector, the organizations were very much conservative in revealing their training & development strategies. 8. At some organizations we were not allowed to interview as student so, we hide our identity to interview. 9. We could not do quantitative analysis as we could not interact with many employees.
