BSNL undertakes organisational, HR revamp

State-owned teleco BSNL is in the process of undertaking an organisational and human resource restructuring to adapt to the changing times, Business Standard reported.

This would allow the public sector undertakingto save over Rs 1,000 crore on an annual basis.

BSNL had hired Deloitte for formulating the new structure, which received the BSNL board approval recently.

''We are revamping our HR structure to conform to the latest business trends. Until now, our HR was becoming bureaucratic with little emphasis on targets and achievements,'' BSNL's chairman and managing director Anupam Shrivastava told newspaper.

Under the structure, a group of many districts would be set, which would be responsible for meeting targets as well as profit and loss of that particular area.

The new set up would also see, operations such as HR, financial system and planning merge while day-to-day functioning would be left to the district areas only.

''This will allow synergy of operations and enable us to save costs of around Rs 1,000 crore annually. It will also bring in more efficiency,'' Shrivastava said. The pilot had already started in Gujarat and Orissa circles and would be taken to other circles soon.
