Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

In the Eyes of Insiders



How do employees see their company ?


Way back in 1987 ( when I was with L&T – Powai Works ) , that question bothered me


So I devised following SURVEY FORM and asked the Supervisors / Officers and Managers to “ rate “ the company on each parameter


The survey was anonymous but the respondent had to mention ( tick ) whether he / she was a Supervisor , an Officer or a Manager ( since perceptions vary with the hierarchy )


Unfortunately , I do not have the SURVEY FINDINGS , but I think the FORM may prove useful to readers – although it was designed keeping in mind , the internal ( to L&T ) and external ( in the country ) conditions prevailing at that time , many of which have changed over the years
