  13. 13. INTRODUCTION Summer Internship forms a part of the curriculum of the PGDM,At NDIM , New Delhi . It gives us an insight into the working of realcorporate world. It equips us with the practical knowledge of theworking of the organization and various aspects of the organizationduring short time like culture followed by functional aspect. The main objective of the summer internship is to experience thevarious concepts that have been learnt during the first year ofmanagement course as learning the concepts is very different fromexperiencing them at a concrete level. We also learn that in a givenparticular situation all the functional aspects are interrelated. Onefunctional aspects cannot be isolated from the organization. Here welearn to be more confident by judging the various situation base on ourreasoning and by the application of our knowledge in these situationsand while doing summer internship, it is expected that we should nothesitate in doing some basic clerical job so that we get in touch withthe organizational realities. pg. 13
  14. 14. OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY The objective of the summer internship is: I. To learn about an industry and to build a relationship with a prospective employer as well as gives us a chance to simply hone our skills.II. To equips us with experience and learning about how we can apply our classroom knowledge in reality. As learning the concept is very different from experiencing them at a concrete level.III. To know about the various situations by establishing relationship between real and significant factors in a situation.IV. In addition to learning valuable new skills and getting the practical experience that employers want to see on our resume, you are also given an opportunity to explore our field of interest before ―officially entering‖ it. pg. 14

  18. 18. COMPANY PROFILE An Introduction to HCL―Our Core is Ore” pg. 18
  19. 19. An Introduction to HCL Hindustan Copper Limited (HCL), a public sectorundertaking under the administrative control of the Ministry of Mines,was incorporated on 9th November 1967. It has the distinction of beingthe nation‘s only vertically integrated copper producing company as itmanufactures copper right from the stage of mining to beneficiation,smelting, refining and casting of refined copper metal into downstreamsaleable products. It‘s a Low cost, Efficient and EnvironmentallyFriendly Mining Company. Hindustan Copper Ltd is the only company whichhas rights to mine copper ore. The company converts copper ore tocathodes, which is further upgraded to bars and rods. This is the only operating copper ore producingmining company in India. This is also the only vertically integratedproducer of primary refined copper in India (Source: Annual Report(2009-10), Ministry of Mines (MoM), Government of India (GoI). Itsprincipal activities include mining of copper ore, concentration ofcopper ore into copper concentrate through a beneficiation processand also smelting, refining and extruding of the copper concentrateinto refined copper in downstream saleable products. pg. 19
  20. 20. Other than selling refined copper productsprincipally in the form of continuous cast wire rods, wire bars andcopper cathodes, company also sell surplus copper concentrate. The Company markets copper cathodes,copper wire bar, continuous cast copper rod and by-products, such asanode slime (containing gold, silver, etc.), copper sulphate andsulphuric acid. More than 90% of the sales revenue is from cathodeand continuous cast copper rods. In concluded financial year 2006-07,as per provisional estimates, the Company has earned a all-timehighest net profit of Rs. 331 crore (~USD 75 million ) against a salesturnover of Rs. 1800 crore (~ USD 420 million). pg. 20
  21. 21. VISION AND MISSION Vision ―Vision of the company is to maximize shareholder value through sustainable mining and value added products.‖ Mission I. More than three times increase in ore production in a decade.II. Continuous improvement in productivity and energy efficiency to bring it at par with the best internationally.III. Acquiring and developing new resources of copper domestically and internationally.IV. To rigidly follow framework for sustainable development of mine and ensure corporate social responsibility.V. To be one of the most profitable Nav Ratna* Companies. *NOTE:- There are total 5 Maharatna,19 Nav Ratna companies , and 63 Mini Ratna companies. pg. 21
  22. 22. PLANT LOCACTIONS HCL‘s mines and plants are spread across four operating Units, one each in the States of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand and Maharashtra as named below: I. Khetri Copper Complex (KCC) at Khetrinagar, RajasthanII. Indian Copper Complex (ICC) at Ghatsila, JharkhandIII. Malanjkhand Copper Project (MCP) at Malanjkhand, Madhya PradeshIV. Taloja Copper Project (TCP) at Taloja, Maharashtra The largest resources of copper ore are located in the state of Rajasthan with 668.5 million tonnes (47.9%) followed by Madhya Pradesh with 404.3 million tonnes (29%) and Jharkhand with 226 million tonnes (16.2%).Copper resources in Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Haryana, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Meghalaya, Orissa, Sikkim,Tamil Nadu, Uttarakhand and West Bengal accounted for about 7% of the total of all Indian estimated resources. pg. 22
  23. 23. GROWTH SINCE INCEPTIONA look at the change in the company since inception: November Incorporated to take over from National 1967 Mineral Development Corporation Ltd. March M/S Indian Copper Corporation Limited, 1972 Private Sector Company, located at Ghatsila, Jharkhand with Smelter and Refinery was Nationalized and made part of HCL February Fully integrated Copper complex from 1975 mining to refining came on stream at Khetri ( capacity 31,000 tonnes of refined copper) November The largest hard rock open pit mine in the 1982 country came into stream at Malanjkhand in Madhya Pradesh of capacity 2 million tonnes ore. December Continuous Cast Wire Rod plant of South 1989 Wire Technology of capacity 60,000 MT was commissioned at Taloja in Maharashtra. 1992 Modernization of concentrator plant at KCC : Installation of larger capacity flotation cells and online stream analyzer has been completed. 1997 Hindustan Copper Ltd. and the Ministry of pg. 23
  24. 24. Mines have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for 1997-98. 1998 Expansion of Khetri Smelter and Refinery : Company is proposing expansion of Khetri Smelter and Refinery capacity from present 31000 to 100000 TPA partly based on imported concentrate. Government approval has already been received for stage-I clearance. Industry Structure and development Till 1997, State owned Hindustan Copper Limited(HCL) was the only Company producing primary refined copper in thecountry meeting about 25-30% of the countries refined copperrequirement, the balance being imported. Presently, four major playerswith total installed production capacity of around ten lakh tonnes ofrefined copper dominate the Indian copper industry. However, HCLwith production capacity of 49,500 tonnes per annum continues to bethe only vertically integrated primary copper producer having its owncaptive mines. The captive mines used to meet about 60% ofCompanies requirement for concentrate, the rest being imported. Thetwo private sector companies, viz. M/s.Hindalco Industries Ltd. (Unit:Birla Copper) and M/s.Sterlite Industries (I) Ltd., with productioncapacities of 5,00,000 tonnes and 4,00,000 tonnes per annum pg. 24
  25. 25. respectively, have set up shore-based smelters relying on importedconcentrate. The fourth player, M/sJhagadia Copper Ltd. With plantcapacity of 50,000 tonnes per annum produces refined copper throughthe secondary route (using copper scrap). While the privateCompanies have the benefits of high scale of operation along withlocation advantage ,HCL has a competitive advantage by virtue ofownership of mines .There has been a paradigm shift in the Indiancopper industry where India has now become a net exporter of copperfrom the earlier position. Industrial Relations Industrial Relations in the Company remainedpeaceful and harmonious. Various bi-partite foray with representativesof the Management and the Unions at the Apex, Unit and Shop floorlevels functioned well. An MoU was reached with the recognized TradeUnions after protracted discussions on Workmen‘s Wage Revisioneffective from 01/11/2007 which has since been implemented. TheCompany also implemented Executive Pay Revision with effect from01/01/2007 as per Government guidelines. Product and Profitability HCL is the only operating copper ore producingmining company in India. This is also the only vertically integratedproducer of primary refined copper in India (Source: Annual Report(2009-10), Ministry of Mines(―MoM), Government of India (―GoI).India has a large imbalance between its copper smelting/refining pg. 25
  26. 26. capacity and its copper ore mining capacity. The refined copperproduction capacity in India for fiscal 2010 was more than 1 milliontonnes of copper, requiring approximately 100 million tonnes of copperore (assuming a copper content of 1%). The copper ore production inIndia for fiscal 2010 was approximately 3.21 million tonnes. As HCLthe only operating copper ore producing mining company in India andhave access to over two-thirds of India‗s copper ore reserves, thispresents an attractive growth opportunity for us. Principal activities include mining of copperore, concentration of copper ore into copper concentrate through abeneficiation process and also smelting, refining and extruding of thecopper concentrate into refined copper in downstream saleableproducts. Other than selling refined copper products principally in theform of continuous cast wire rods, wire bars and copper cathodes, wealso sell surplus copper concentrate. In addition ,It sell by-productsgenerated through the copper manufacturing process including anodeslime containing gold and silver and sulphuric acid. The majority of HCL‘s sales of refined copperproducts and copper concentrate are made to customers in thedomestic market in India. For fiscal 2010, we generated approximately75% of its revenue from sales of refined copper in the domestic marketand 22% of its revenue from sales of copper concentrate in thedomestic market. Refined copper products prices in India arebenchmarked to the LME copper price. pg. 26
  27. 27. Set forth below is a chart of our Company‗skey production and sales volumes for each of the last three fiscalyears and the three month period ended June 30, 2010. For fiscal 2010, and the three month periodended June 30, 2010, sales of refined copper products accounted forapproximately 75% and 58% of our revenue, respectively, whereassale of copper concentrate accounted for approximately 22% and 33%of our revenue, respectively. For fiscal 2010, and the three monthperiod ended June 30, 2010, we had consolidated total revenues ofRs.13,807.0 million and Rs.2,469.1 million, profit before tax ofRs.2,158.4 million and Rs.439.5 million and profit after tax ofRs.1,546.8 million and Rs.262.0 million, respectively. During the year 2009-10, the Companyearned foreign exchange of Rs 36.10 crore through exports of anodeslime, as against Rs 75.22 crore earned in 2008-09. pg. 27
  28. 28.

  32. 32. TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATIONHindustan Copper Limited has to its credit some major contributionstowards technological improvements in mining, beneficiation,smelting, hydrometallurgy and by-product recovery. Some of theareas where Hindustan Copper Limited has introduced newtechnology areMININGTrackless MiningTrackless mining has helped in rapid development of mines enablinghigher levels of production and productivity comparable tointernational standards.Drop RaisingRaising is one of the most difficult of mining operation, HCL hasdeveloped and perfected the concept of drop raising over 60mintervals. This has resulted in increased-safety and higher progress.A pattern of five 6‖ diameter holes has been standardized for thecrater method of blasting the raises sequentially. pg. 32
  33. 33. Large Diameter Blast Hole StopingHCL has developed single sub-level method of stoping using largediameter (162 mm) blast holes over level intervals of 50 to 60 meters.Need to have intermediate sub-level for drilling has been eliminatedin this method. Excellent fragmentation has been achieved. Benefitsof new stoping method compared with the conventional sub-levelstoping methods are:• Reduction in quantum of developments, drilling cost and explosive cos• Overall reduction in the cost of mining• Reduction of manpower and• Reduction in stopes preparation time. The new method of stopping has revolutionized mining technology.Rock BoltingFor mining flat dipping ore bodies, timber support was common inearly days. With the need to mine over a large width. HCL developedvery simple but effective methods of rock bolting using cementgrouted steel rods. This has resulted in the improvement of groundconditions ensuring higher safety standards.Post Pillar StoppingHCL has developed the post-pillar method of mining for adoption inflatly dipping wide ore bodies in ICC group of mines. This miningmethod has enabled the production rates to go up as compared toroom and pillar stopes. Electrically operated LHD s have been pg. 33
  34. 34. introduced at ICC for operating in these stopes. The output per manshift has increased and the stoping cost has come downsubstantially. Hydraulic filling of stopes with classified mill tailings hasbeen established as a standard practice at the ICC resulting inregional improvement in ground conditions.SMELTINGOxygen EnrichmentHCL has also taken the lead in introducing oxygen enrichment in theconverters at KCC and ICC resulting in effective control ofaccumulation of secondary products in smelting. HCL has alsointroduced oxygen enrichment in process air in flash furnace toeffectively increase the capacity of the existing smelters for meetingincreased production commitments.Hydro-MetallurgyOccurrences of large quantities of oxidized ore and lean gradesulphide ore at Malajkhand has impelled the company to extractcopper values in the ore by dump leaching otherwise uneconomicalby conventional methods. The dump is sprayed with dilute acidifiedsolutions to dissolve copper minerals. The end product of thisleaching operation is a pregnant liquor of copper sulphate. Theleached liquor is then treated to recover copper metal. pg. 34
  35. 35. By-Product Recovery HCL has established well equipped R&D facility at KCC and ICC. The R&D section is fully responsible for improvement in quality of the products, control of quality of raw materials, improvement of recoveries and for maximizing the recovery of by-products, HCL has developed its own Precious Metal Recovery plant which is now operating at ICC successfully. A Tellurium Recovery Plant has also been developed by R&D Wing. Extensively trails are going on for recovering cobalt, nickel and copper powder from converter slag. Attempts are also being made for reducing the losses from slag. Quality Assurance High quality of product and associatedcustomer satisfaction is of supreme importance in HCL‘s operations.All actions are directed to produce a quality which not only satisfies thecustomers but prove to be a ―CUSTOMERS‘ DELIGHT‖. In order toachieve this the Company has accredited itself with ISO 9002certification for all its products viz. Copper Cathode and Copper CCWire rods. Cathodes produced at Khetri Copper Complex, Rajasthanand Indian Copper Complex, Bihar are ISO 9002 accredited .HCL isthe FIRST ISO accredited Company in India in copper productionfield. All the units of HCL have adequatemodern controls, test and analysis facilities to ensure proper quality pg. 35
  36. 36. at all stages of operation. The raw material input checks , in process controls and final testing of the product are all carried out as per laid down procedures . The final product of copper cathode are sampled batch wise and analyzed by sophisticated instruments like direct reading Emission Spectrometer, Atomic Absorption Spectro Photometers and LECO Oxygen Analyzer. At Taloja (C C Rod plant) cathodes are received along with their analysis certificates and finally Wire rods are produced by the South wire Technology. To ensure quality of the product following in-process checks and controls are routinely exercised as per a laid down procedure.a. Monitoring and control of metal temperature and oxygen content at the cast wheelb. Molten metal oxygen control by built in CO Analyzerc. Control of alcohol content and pH of pickling solution and mill coolantd. Monitoring and control of hardness of cooling water.e. Monitoring and control of soundness of cast bar.f.

  50. 50. The Product - COPPER The strategic role of Copper in the entiredevelopment process ,is increasingly vital to ensure self-reliance inthis metal ,which touches many key sectors of the economy. Copper and its alloy are indispensible especially tothe electrical industry ,the transportation sector ,the generalengineering industry ,in the manufacture of commercial and consumergoods ,in building construction and hardware and of course to thedefence sector. Today Copper is a vital ingredient of the spaceage and is used in many areas including printed circuits. Copper is anon-magnetic metal with high conductivity, tensile strength andresistance to corrosion. On average, the Earth‗s crust contains only0.0058% copper, making it a scarce metal as compared with 8%aluminum and 5.8% iron. Most commercial copper ore depositscontain 0.5-0.6% (ore in India has an average copper content of 1.2-1.3%). Copper production in India, which has grownsteadily over the years, is entirely done by Hindustan Copper Ltd. Inan urgent Endeavour to improve productivity, the company hasembarked on various technological innovations and expansion plansand, is now poised to take the nation towards higher level of self-reliance. In addition, copper has several non-electrical applicationssuch as tubes for air conditioners and refrigerators, foils for printed pg. 50
  51. 51. circuit boards and other industrial and consumer applications. Copperis also used in a number of alloys, including brass (copper and zinc),bronze (copper andtin), nickel silver, phosphor bronze and aluminiumbronze. *Source: CRU statistics; Ministry of Mines, Annual Report 2010 Copper Consumption From 2000 to 2009, global copperconsumption is estimated to have grown at an average rate of 2% perannum .Robust growth in Asia ,led by China, has resulted in significantchanges to global consumption patterns during the last decade.Europe and North America, which used to consume over 50% of theworld‗s refined copper during the 1990‗s, accounted for only 32% in2009. Asia, on the other hand, has emerged as the world‗s mostimportant copper market, growing at a CAGR of 7% between 2000 and2009. In 2009, Asia consumed more than half of the world‗s refined pg. 51
  52. 52. copper, with China alone accounting for nearly 40% of globalconsumption. Global consumption growthslowed in 2008 during the global financial crisis, contracting by 1% in2008 to just above 18 million tonnes, largely due to falling consumptionin the world‗s mature economies. The contraction was followed bymodest growth of 1% in 2009.Source: CRU, Analysis Copper Quarterly Industry and Market Outlook July 2010 The above graph illustrates the growth of refined copper consumption at present and in future in India for the periods indicated. pg. 52

  54. 54. Copper Production Primary copper production starts with the extraction of copper ores. There are basically four stages of copper production, which are both independent and complementary of one another. Each of the stages of production can be done by independent companies, as each has a distinct application. Additionally, the different stages of production complement each other as they can be used in combination to produce the highest quality copper. The stages include mining, smelting, refining and leaching. The companies in the copper industry can be divided into three broad sectors: copper miners which mine ore to produce copper concentrate; copper custom smelters which smelt and refine copper from the concentrate obtained from copper mines to produce refined copper; integrated copper producers which undertake mining, smelting and refining or leaching to produce refined copper products. Alternatively, copper ore can be concentrated and refined using a hydrometallurgical process. The crushed ore is percolated in water or an acidic chemical solution to dissolve and separate the minerals. The copper is recovered from the resulting solution either through SX-EW or chemical precipitation. Hydrometallurgical processing is typically used for low grade oxide ores and some sulphide ores. The end product is the same as through the smelting and electrolytic refining process described above — refined copper cathodes. ICSG estimates that in 2009, refined copper pg. 54
  55. 55. production from SX-EW represented 18% of total global refined copperproduction. Depending on the copper minerals and the types of equipment available, the subsequent pyrometallurgical treatment of the copper concentrate by smelters may take as many as three steps: roasting, smelting and converting. Roasting dries, heats and partially removes sulphur from the concentrate to facilitate smelting. The copper concentrate is then smelted to further remove wasten products and produce a liquid copper matte that is 35-75% copper. After smelting, the molten matte is processed in a converter to create blister copper that is 98.5-99.5% copper. The molten blister is fire refined to further remove waste products and then poured into moulds. pg. 55
  56. 56. The cooled copper is called anode copper. In the final stage of purification, the anode copper is refined by an electrolytic process to obtain copper cathodes, which have a metal content of 99.99% copper. Copper cathodes are melted and cast into wire bars or continuous bar stock for wire manufacture, into slabs for mechanical use or into ingots for alloying. Saleable ProductsProducts and ApplicationThe principal products in HCL copper refining business is copper cathode and continuous cast rods. It also produce sulphuric acid, copper sulphate, nickel sulphate and anode slime containing gold and silver, which are by-products of the copper smelting process.Copper CathodeHCL‘s copper cathodes are square shaped with purity levels of 99.99%. The cathode production processes at ICC smelting and refining plants are accredited with ISO 9001:2008 certification. The major uses of copper cathode are in the manufacture of copper rods for the wire and cable industry and copper tubes for consumer durable goods. Copper cathode is also used for making alloys such as brass, bronze and alloy steel, with applications in the defense, minting and construction industries. pg. 56
  57. 57. Continuous Cast Copper Wire Rods Its cast rods have a homogenous structure and very finegrain size and can be drawn into ultra fine wires. HCL‘s continuouscast rods are used for power and communication cables, strips forpower and distribution transformers and magnet wires as well as otherproducts. large diameter continuous cast rods (11.0 mm,12.5 mm and16.0 mm) are utilized for production of profiles and bus bars.The continuous cast rods can also be used as the basic raw materialfor the manufacture of wire and cable, including winding wire,telephone cables, power cables, wiring harnesses, house wiringcables and instrumentation and control cables.Precious MetalsHCl has a precious metal recovery plant located at ICC. Preciousmetals, such as gold and silver, are found in certain quantities incopper concentrate. Gold and silver rates are based on theprevailing international bullion market price of the metals. Thesemetals are extracted after copper refining to produce 99.95% puregold and silver, as well as selenium and tellurium. The residue afterextraction of gold and silver contains traces of platinum andpalladium which can be sold as platinum group metal mix, commonlyknown as PGM. pg. 57
  58. 58. HCL suspended the operations of the ICC precious metal recovery plant in 2007 as founded it more economical to sell anode slime containing gold and silver rather than refine the precious metals itself. Accordingly, it sells anode slime containing gold and silver as a by- product in the export market. By-Product Company has a sulphuric acid plant located at ICC. The sulphur dioxide gas generated from the flash furnace and converter is treated in the sulphuric acid plant to produce sulphuric acid and sells sulphuric acid, copper slag and copper sulphate crystals, which are by-products of company refined copper production processes, in the domestic and export markets.

  61. 61. Indian Copper Market The total resources of India‗s copper ore ason April 2005 (classified under the United Nations FrameworkClassification system) were estimated at 1.4 billion tonnes. Of these,369.5 million tonnes (26.5%) fall under ―reserves‖(proved and probablecategories) while the remaining 1.02 billion tonnes (73.5%) are―remaining resources‖(under feasibility, pre-feasibility, measured,indicated and inferred categories). The largest resources of copper ore arelocated in the state of Rajasthan with 668.5 million tonnes (47.9%)followed by Madhya Pradesh with 404.3 million tonnes (29%) andJharkhand with 226 million tonnes (16.2%). Copper resources inAndhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Haryana, Karnataka, Maharashtra,Meghalaya, Orissa, Sikkim,Tamil Nadu, Uttarakhand and West Bengalaccounted for about 7% of the total of all Indian estimated resources. Including HCL, refined copperproduction in India is currently dominated by four major producers.Jhagadia is currently focused on producing refined copper fromrecycled copper scrap with a total refined capacity of 50,000 tonnesper annum in 2009. At present, Sterlite‗s copper business is principallyone of custom smelting. As on 2009, Sterlite‗s refined copper capacitywas approximately 400,000 tonnes per annum. Hindalco is alsoprimarily a custom smelter with a total refined copper capacity of500,000 tonnes per annum in 2009. As Hindalco and Sterlite rely onoverseas markets for almost their entire requirement of copperconcentrate.Refined copper production in India has more than doubledfrom a modest 260,000 tonnes in 2000 to 715,000 tonnes in 2009. In pg. 61

  64. 64. Introduction Human resource is most important assetin any business or for any organization. It also plays a major role inspeedy growth and maintaining stability of any organization. HRPolicies and Procedures are important for legal compliance andeffective management. Human resources is term which in manyorganizations describes the combination of traditionally administrativepersonnel functions with performance management, employeerelations, and resource planning. Human resource management(HRM) is the strategic and coherent approach to the management ofan organization‘s most valued assets – the people working there whoindividually and collectively contribute to the achievement of theobjectives of the business. Human Resource management is evolvingrapidly. Human resource management is both an academic theory anda business practice that addresses the theoretical and practicaltechniques of managing a workforce. Human Resources arePersonnel pool available to an organization. The most importantresources in any organization are its human resources. Appropriatehuman resources assure an organization that the right number andkind of people are available at the right time and place so thatorganizational needs can be met. Successful human resourceplanning should identify human resource needs. Once we know theseneeds, we will want to do something about meeting them. pg. 64
  65. 65. Recruitment and Establishment In HCL/ICC there is an altogether different department for the process of recruitment and selection which is called as recruitment and selection department. Recruitment is the discovering of potential applicants for actual or anticipated organizational vacancies. CERTAIN INFLUENCE CONSTRAINT MANAGER IN DETERMINING RECRUITING SOURCES:- I.

  67. 67. Selection Process Selection is defined as the process of differentiating betweenapplicants in order to identify (and hire) those with a greater likelihoodof success in a job .Selection is basically picking an applicant from(a pool of applicants) who has the appropriate qualification andcompetency to do the job. ROLE OF SELECTION Selection is crucial for the organizations effectiveness for tworeasons: 1) Work performance: Performance of the organization is veryimportant to the success of the company. So the organization alwaysemploys people who are well qualified and competent. 2) Cost incurred: cost incurred while selection process also playsan important role .This can be explained with an example: Pepsi went on a crash recruitment drive. Six people from thecompany took over Oberoi business center for six days. 3000 peoplewho had responded to the advertisements earlier issued werescanned: people were asked to respond within 100hrs by fax. Peopleselected forth interview were flown into the city. This eg just shows how expensive selection can be. Hence costincurred is very important forth success of the selection process. The difference between recruitment and selection: pg. 67
  68. 68. Recruitment is identifying n encouraging prospective employees to apply for a job And Selection is selecting the right candidate from the pool of applicants. SELECTION PROCEDURE: 1) Job Analysis: Job analysis includes dividing the application according to the nature of the job. 2) Initial Screening: Includes screening of the documents send by the applicant and making a list of the qualifying candidate based on the educational qualification, experience, and background. 3) Test: Conducted by the company to select only the eligible candidate .A Candidate who achieves the qualifying marks proceeds to the next step. 4) Interview: Selected candidate have to go through interview and group discussion of a management panel of HCL/ICC. 5) Medical Fitness: A medical test gets conducted by the HCL doctors and only a fit candidate gets an offer letter. 6) Offer Letter: Offer letter is issued to the finally selected candidate including all the rules , regulation .it includes I. codes of conduct.II. pay scale and allowance.III. joining details(date ,place ,reporting authority) pg. 68
  69. 69. IV. Declaration of Acceptance. 7) Verification and reference check: In this step company verifies all the details provided by the candidate through following sources  Verification of antecedents/character from civil bodies/legal authorities.  Previous organization/organizations and other sources. Probation policy Employees remain on probation for a period of six months, at the end of which they gets confirmation. Confirmation is dependent on to the satisfactory conduct and performance of the employee during the probation period. In case the conduct and/or performance is not satisfactory during the probation period and/or not found medically for confirmation service gets terminated without any prior notice or compensation. During probation period the training authorities constantly check the employees performance and also keeps an eye on the nature and all the activities of the employee. Induction Program This program specially organized by the company to introduces new joinee to the company, making them aware of the structure and working environment ,about campus ,location ,company history ,present status, achievements , and other necessary details. pg. 69
  70. 70. Employee Training Employee training is the planned effort of an organization to help employees learn the job related behaviors and skills they will need to do their job properly. It is a set of planned activities that the organization will have their employees complete in order to increase their job knowledge and skills and to have them get accustomed to the attitudes and social atmosphere of the company.
