In our organization two types of groups. One is formal and another one is informal group. Organization creates a opportunity to make a group. This group is approved by organization. Some times employee create group for their needs it could be logical or not. It never survives long time.

Question-11: What are the benefits and problems of the informal organization?

Informal group is a problem when employee make a group they can do anything as a manager I concern about informal group. When they make a group, we collect the information, what’s there a need. We think mutual it, or we make a committee with senior Manager.

Question-12: Stress is not managed to be removed, what happens on employee?

Manager:

Every organization has stress. As a private company here work stress are more. Here employees work in under pressure. Some time they feel bad. It creates a personal problem.

Their behavior is rude with her families and with her relatives. We try to most recover them to free them/ refresh them.

Comments:

Organization has two types of needs.

Primary needs and secondary needs. In this organization primary needs are fulfilled. Employees are satisfied food, comfort and salary. Secondary needs are not fulfilled in the same time. In this organization provided car but they have not any accommodation facilities. Employees want this reward to be fair. If there is no equality there will no motivation.

Leadership is the process of influencing and supporting employees so that they work to achieve objective. For that reason manager create good relation with employees. Leader give importance to employees human needs first. Pharmaceutical organization especially sales department they work in field they have lot of experience. How beat the competitor they know very well. If company more participated the employees, they know more about the company. They contributed the decision making. It will be more effective. Employee’s attitude is important factor regarding response to change.

Managers discuss with employees but he takes decision. Employees participated and contribute to make decision. They take decision combine with employees, especially in sales division.

Manager helps the employees to participate the seminar. In this organization conflict are happen in sometimes. It could be departmental, Interpersonal or Intergroup. Sometimes manager are benefited for this conflict. But it is dangerous when it is long time happen. Employees work in under pressure. They feel stress from job related issue. Every month they have a target. It is increase every month, so they feel excess work load. For that reason employees suffer different problem. This company they have some limitation. Overall company performance is good.
