Training and Promotion Criterion:
Training-needs analysis is a part of the appraisal process and every employee is given both in-house as well as external training. Supervisors provide training in Performance Management System (PMS) processes. The training is given in-house by a senior person before the review and appraisals. The company has to start with its in-house assessment centre to identify training gaps and use it for developmental purposes only. For consistent under performers, the companies now plan for Voluntary Retirement Scheme (VRS).
The promotions are given using a point system to ensure objectivity. The grades are allotted with predefined points and an employee needs to get a minimum score to qualify for the promotion. The promotions are given taking into account the performance, vacancy and the potential of the individual.
