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
