Issues Top Paints Limited while looking to carry out its operations is facing different issues that need to be dealt with.
The lack of initiative by the top management and the human resource department has multiplied the complexities and requires addressing those issues urgently. Some of the issues identified are The compensation package which has been designed is traditional and outdated. Employees are paid a fixed salary with a determined increment every year. This has reduced the level of innovativeness within the organization as employees look to carry out their normal routine activities and don’ t look towards coming with innovative and new solutions.
This has hampered the growth and progress of the organization and is an area of consideration. The process of carrying out work is also traditional as the business follows one-way traffic where the top management states what needs to be done. No initiative is taken by the employees to provide advice as a result of it. This has also hampered the manner in which decisions pertaining to employee compensation is decided. The overall impact has been on performance which has affected long-term productivity.
