The BrajBinani Group traces its beginning to 1872, when Seth PragdasBinani, a trader in metal utensils, began an enterprise with his son Seth Mathuradas to engage in the import and export of metals. The enterprise continued to grow from strength to strength. The year 1941 marked an important phase in the evolution when Seth Mathuradas’ son Seth Govardhandas made a bold, but significant, move from trading to manufacturing. Binani Metal Works got rolling with a plant at Howrah. Taking on the mantle from his father, it was during the reign of son GhanshyamBinani, that Binani Zinc was born.

And with a clear focus to adapt and execute the best, the BrajBinani Group has not only attained major internationally accepted certifications for its various ventures, but also has extended its reach well beyond Indian borders – to UAE, China and is in the process of expanding into Africa and other countries. BIL owes most of its success to its simple yet potent philosophy – honesty, transparency, efficiency and its unflinching commitment to the customers, coupled with an inherent determination to succeed.

Organisation design factors and approaches For a organisation to work properly it is very important that it has a proper organization structure. A good structure can ensure organisation growth whereas a bad structure or design can lead to its downfall.
Some of the design factors and approaches of binani cement are : Best quality products : by using the best quality products we ensure that our customers are fully satisfied. Ontime delivery : for company growth it is very important that it delivers the manufactured products on time as committed. Rational pricing : by rational pricing we mean the best price possible for both company and customer. Transparent policy : We use same and transparent policies for all our customers ie our policies does not change with customer to customer.
Profitability to dealers/retailers : it is very important that dealers/retailers are profited and promoted to sell our products because they are the only persons who deals with customers directly, so without profiting them organization cannot think of its profit. Organisation Structure Factors ORGANISATION STRUCTURE The organisation must have a proper hierarchical structure so that each person is aware of his own responsibilities in the organisation. The structure should be so transparent that every person knows the responsibility of his immediate head and tail. Significant factors for success
The core strategy is based on consolidation and sustainable growth. The investment strategy of the company aims at becoming a low cost producer in all its business and in upgrading technology to meet stringent product quality requirements. Quality is the manthra of the organization. Ever since its inception it has been in the forefront of providing quality products and services to its customers with equal emphasis on environmental pollution control and energy conservation. It maintains commendable grade of quality in all levels of its operation and high level of its productivity by adaptation of state of art technology.
The customer centric manufacturing and satisfaction are the main forte of the quality management satisfaction. The company interact with its customers to continuously asses their needs and expectations and ensure total customer satisfaction by maintaining consistent quality of its products and services with the involvement of its employees. The company promote transparency and openness in its relationship with its employees and the community and treat them in a fair and respectful manner Product Promotional Measures
Binani is one such player who has taken up branding in a serious manner. The brand is relying on the celebrity power to build its equity. Binani Cement used the cricketing master Sunil Gavaskar to promote its brand during the launch phase in 1997. After a long period of silence, the brand began to invest heavily in brand promotion from 2007. The brand chose the ever green Amitabh Bachchan as the brand ambassador in 2007. There was lot of buzz during the time big B was chosen to endorse a cement brand. Binani Cement started using Big B in the television commercials in a dignified manner.
This is one of those brands that tried to make use of Bachchan’s charisma to the brand’s advantage. The ads were laden with subtle humor and according to the reports, Binani cement’s sales surged during these campaigns. The brand did a smart move by taking advantage of the fact that both the brand and the brand ambassador name starts with B. The cement brand began to call itself Big B. While the brand gains by the association, there were many critics who argued that now Big B will be associated with cement rather than celebrity.
Binani cement has the tagline ” Sadiyon Ke liye” which means ” for centuries “. Although the ads featuring Bachchan was well made, I felt that it lacked a punch. The brand lacked a powerful message . Training Measures The Company follows different training schemes for different category of employees. Management Training Programs: Management staffs are given one year training after which they enter probation for the next six months. During the training program, they are given a stipend of Rs. 7000 per month. After the probation they are absorbed into the respective department.
Workman Training: The workmen are given a training for 2 years in which they are given a stipend of Rs. 2000 per month the first year and Rs. 3000 the second year. After the probation, are absorbed into the respective departments. Apprenticeship training: The Company facilitates apprenticeship training for one year as per the Apprenticeship Act. It is categorized into three different types- Graduates, Technicians and trade Apprentice. Graduates get a stipend of Rs. 1930, Technicians who are Diploma holders get a stipend of Rs. 1400 and Trade apprentice (ITI holders) get a stipend of Rs. 800.
Paid Trainees: As a welfare function, children of employees holding professional degree are given training in the company with a stipend of Rs. 1500. But it is not necessary to absorb these candidates into the company. Unpaid Trainees: Diploma holders are given training, but they are not paid any stipend. At the end of the training program a company certificate is issued. Cross Functional Exchange Program: This facility is also for the management staff to get familiarize with the departments apart from the department in which he works. It is a 4 month training program. It is intended to enhance multiple working skills in a person.
Knowledge and Skill Up gradation Program: This is a program in which high grade employees belonging to the non-management staff are trained and promoted to lower level management staff. System Followed for Purchase Of Materials First the respective department employee generates a query regarding its requirement. This query is then sent to the Respective head of the department. If the query is been accepted by the head , then the query is forwarded to the Purchase department. Now the purchase department asks for the quote and when the quote is finalised then the purchase is done.
And when the purchase is done it is then transferred to the respected department. HRD Measures Welfare: All statutory functions according to the Factory Act like canteen, rest rooms, drinking water, health centre etc are provided. Apart from these employees are provided with uniform, footwear, umbrella, soap, towel, shoes, transportation etc are provided by the company. Recreation room is equipped with various indoor games like table tennis, chess etc. Various cultural events are held. Festivals like Diwali are celebrated where various competitions for the staff and children are held.
Employee Motivation: To motivate the employees Best Performance Award is given to the best employee. Health Center: Specialist Medical Camp is held every month where free consultation is provided for the employees, their family and local residents. A compulsory medical checkup for all the employees is held annually. Safety: The main objective of the department is to ensure safety activities and ensuring statutory compliance, development of safety systems and implementation, taking care of the housekeeping activities, ensuring conformance to safety regulations, accident Investigation Analysis and remedial measures etc.
Performance Appraisal The main objective of the appraisal is to identify if employees need any further training, identify the eligible people for promotions and salary increment. In case of trainees under probation, monthly assessment is done where the quality and quantity of work, attendance, relationship with the other employees etc are assessed. In case of permanent employees a closed appraisal system is adopted where only the respective department head and the HR department is present. Binani cement uses 360 degree appraisal system
The highlights of this type of system are: 360 degree feedback is the most comprehensive and costly type of appraisal. It includes self ratings, peer review, and upward assessments; feedback is sought from everyone. It gives people a chance to know how they are seen by others; to see their skills and style; and may improve communications between people. 360 degree feedback helps by bringing out every aspect of an employee’s life. Cooperation with people outside their department, helpfulness towards customers and vendors, etc. ay not be rewarded by other types of appraisal. This system also helps those who have conflicts with their manager. 360 degree feedback generally has high employee involvement and credibility; may have the strongest impact on behaviour and performance; and may greatly increase communication and shared goals. It provides people with a good all-around perspective. Some suggestions Given by me To the Organization 1)To start the advertisement campaign again. 2)They have large market share in North they should expand it to other parts also. 3)Explore more overseas market.
