“ RATIONALE BEHIND THE STUDY ”
Industrial advancement is an result of chiefly of the human and physical resources of the production. Sufficient advancement has been made in the domain of physical input such as capital and engineering. Despite rapid development in engineering the coveted degree of economic development and societal public assistance are yet to be achieved! One of the chief causes of failure has been underutilization of human resources in the state. Unfortunately the rate of advancement in our state has non been commensurate with our possible on history of deficiency of appropriate work civilization. Employer and employed are still looked upon as antagonists instead than as spouses. In the united enterprises frequent work stoppages, lockouts and other signifiers of industrial agitation are symptoms of predominating environment in industry.
In this undertaking the chief intent of the survey was to hold a thorough apprehension of the theoretical construct and their practical application by being placed in the existent work environment
- To understand their relevancy and happen the extent to which they are really being applied in the work state of affairs ;
- To hold an in-depth cognition of the map of the organisation through existent work experience.
“ Aim OF THE STUDY ”
The undertaking apart from a brief overall reappraisal of the organisation surveies the degree of absenteeism rate in the organisation, mentioning the general staff of both the managerial and non-managerial degree of employees. The chief issue of concern was related with the employee ‘s presence rate and how frequently they find themselves neglecting in describing to work, at the same clip analysing different causes and other inducements sing wages and public assistance bundles offered to them every bit good as judging the satisfaction degree with their compensation bundle, which certainly creates a ground for finding their dedication towards the work.
This undertaking has besides been undertaken to garner the inside informations of employees turn over every bit good as analyzing the general tendency within an organisation enabling to happen an exact ground behind the increasing absenteeism rate in the organisation.
Hence, the major aims of this survey were: –
- To place the prevalence degree of the absentees in Varun Beverages Ltd.
- To place the major causes of the absenteeism at Varun Beverages Ltd.
- To Asses the after effects of absenteeism in Varun Beverages Ltd.
The undertaking is based on my experience and frequent interaction with the employees in VBL.
“ Hypothesis ”
A hypothesis is a proposition, status or rule which is assumed, possibly without belief, in order to pull logical effects by this method to prove its agreement with facts which are known or may be determined.
When a research worker observes knows facts and takes up a job for analysis, he foremost has to get down someplace and this point of start is the hypothesis. In other words, one has to continue to explicate probationary solution every bit shortly as the job to be tackled is finalized. These proposed solutions or accounts constitute the hypothesis which the research worker returns to prove on the footing of fact already known or that can be made known. Even, aggregation of facts simply for the interest of roll uping them will give no fruits ; to be fruitful, facts need to be collected such that they are for or against some point of position or proposition. Such a point of position or proposition is the hypothesis. The probationary accounts or solutions are suggested to researcher by something in the capable affair and by our old experience.
Hypothesis proving agencies to cognize whether the hypothesis based on the information collected is valid or non. The chief object of hypothesis testing is whether to accept the void hypothesis. Procedure for hypothesis proving trades with stairss on the footing of which a hypothesis is either rejected or accepted.
Therefore, this survey has been chiefly carried out to analyze and judge the effects and deductions of absenteeism among the employees of a bottling works, both on the managerial and the non-managerial subdivision of employees.
The hypotheses of the survey are: –
- Absenteeism affects and reduces organisational productiveness.
- Logical mentality towards assorted jobs was more outstanding among regular attendants than absentees.
- Older employees have greater committedness towards their work.
The hypothesis of this survey has been deduced and identified on the footing of the belief that employees usually absents themselves from work due to certain unconditioned and conditional grounds which affects organisational productiveness.
“ Scope OF THE STUDY ”
Every employee who takes off in rebelliousness of organisation ordinance has grounds, right or incorrect which justify themselves the legitimacy of their actions. Unless a direction attending plan identifies and addresses the causes of employee absenteeism it will be uneffective and unjust. Traditional disciplinary plans entirely can, at best, give the semblance of control. It is no secret that there are ways to crush even the best systems. The fright of subject frequently merely increases the desire to avoid direction systems.
If absenteeism is to be controlled the physical and the emotional demands of employees must be addressed. In a 1985 survey on “ Ratess of absence among Nurses ” it was found that 50 % of absenteeism could be controlled through go toing employees physical and emotional demands.
“ Constraint OF THE STUDY ”
My undertaking is entitled as:
“ A survey of the degree of absenteeism and its causes, at Varun Beverages Ltd. ”
( A survey conducted at Pepsi Bottling Plant Greater Noida, UP, with particular mention to managerial and non-managerial classs of employees )
My undertaking being based on the primary informations, I have undergone a session of interaction through questionnaire with both the managerial and non-managerial group of employees as per the demand of my undertaking.
Now, while undergoing the interview procedure I found certain restraints bing thereby in VBL:
- Concealment of some true facts by the respondents due to fear of the direction.
- Some of the responses given by the respondents obscure i.e. non legible and clear.
- Few of them showed disinterest as they all have a impression that such an probe is ineffectual and that they will derive no benefit from it.
- Few of them remained quiet when asked about what suggestions they would wish to give for future developments and success of VBL.
Besides all these restraints I have been impressed by the inventiveness, cooperation, assurance and efficiency which were reflected through their cognition and experience and still happen my journey of interviewing, interesting and people at VBL good-humored and therefore at least I successfully interacted to 70 employees in Varun Beverages Ltd.
“ Beginning OF VARUN BEVERAGES LTD. UNDER RKJ GROUP ”
It can be said with absolute certainty that the RKJ Group has carved out a particular niche for itself. Its services touch different facets of commercial and civilian spheres like those of Bottling, Food Chain and Education. Headed by Mr. R. K. Jaipuria, the group as on today can put claim to expertise and leading in the Fieldss of instruction, nutrient and drinks.
The concern of the company was started in 1991 with a tie-up with Pepsi Foods Limited to fabricate and market Pepsi trade name of drinks in geographically pre-defined districts in which trade name and proficient support was provided by the Principals viz. , Pepsi Foods Limited.

Champa Devi Jaipuria Charitable Trust. Companies are average sized, professionally managed, unlisted and closely held between Indian Promoters and foreign confederates.
The group added another plume to its cap when the esteemed PepsiCo “ International Bottler of the Year ” award was presented to Mr. R. K.

A North Carolina Pharmacist established Pepsi Cola in 1980 as a remedy for Dyspepsia ( dyspepsia ) . Under the supervising of Mr. Bradhman Pepsi ‘s first bottling works was build 1905.
In 1977, when Coca-cola left the state so Pepsi Co. began to put programs to come in this immense Indian soft drink market.

In January 1995 Pepsi took over and it is now known as a Cobo ( Company owned bottling operations ) company. It joined custodies with Voltas Ltd with 60 % equity. But now it has become a to the full owned subordinate.
Pepsi Company is wide based nutrient and Beverages Company, functioning more than 60 % of its gross revenues and operation net incomes from its snack- nutrients and eating houses concern. Established with a turnover of $ 28 billion in 1989, the company ‘s drink concern has grown 50 % streets in front of the market ; which has expanded by 20 % . It poured in huge amounts to flog up its visibleness at the retail degree, so that consumes were greeted virtually at really street corner by Pepsi ‘s blue-red and white colourss. Behind the ballyhoo, in attempt unseeable to consumers, Pepsi pumped in Rs.300 Crore to add musculus to its substructure in bottling and distribution. This is apart from the money that up rating the workss.
April 1993, Voltas and Punjab Agro ‘s equity bets were bought over change overing Pepsi Foods from a joint venture to to the full ain subordinate. Weak bottlers who did nit hold the finance were given massing support in from of interest- free loans to upgrade their operations. But the large scheme, which has proved to be victor was the place Pepsi, decided taken company owned Bottling operations ( COBO ) . For this another subordinate Pepsi co. India Holding was set up as investing vehicle capitalized at $ 9.5 million.

Pepsi is seeking really hard to keep the lead it made over its rivals in the India sift drink market. It is spread outing its concern in the other Fieldss besides. It is in the concern of export of drinks dressed ores. This twelvemonth Pepsi has achieved a 100 % growing in the export turnover in the first quart of 1998 over the corresponding period for the old twelvemonth. Pepsi has taken a lead in the drink concentrate exports from potency in the close hereafter. Pepsi has besides developed agricultural linkages to boot its export push and as a move in the way, its works at Sonepat has become the first rice-processing installation in India.
Pepsi mean while added a new scope of merchandises to its agro-export Portfolio. These include Baron, a staff of life of peanut butter marketed in U.S. , Branded red and green chili, Puree, ginger and garlic paste & A ; cooking paste under the season ‘s Harvest place, which is besides the name of its branded basmati rice.
At present Pepsi is seeking really hard to keep its place in the market. It is runing in a really good managed mode. Some of its schemes it followed to be competitory in the market country follows –
One of the strongest arms in the Pepsi ‘s armoury is the flexibleness it has empowered with its people. Every trough and gross revenues individual has the governments to take whatever stairss he feels will do consumer aware of the trade name and increase its ingestion.
Pepsi has a really good managed distributive system. It is said the “ Pepsi do n’t hold bottlers, it has spouses ” . Pepsi has a well-aligned bottling web. It operates through COBO ( Company owned bottling operations ) and FOBO ( Franchise owned Bottling Operationss )
It is this manner a Pepsi Co. , India Strengthens it ‘s selling that gives it an border. Every figure of its gross revenues squad is meticulously taught the selling and show accomplishments that can leverage the range of the company ‘s bottling web to accomplish high visibleness for the merchandise.
“ COMPANY PROFILE IN INDIAN SCENARIO ”
Since the entry of Pepsi co. to India in 1987, the soft drink Industry has undergone a extremist alteration. When Pepsi entered parley was the leader with ‘Thumps UP ‘ being its flagship trade name. Other merchandise offerings by parley included Limca & A ; Gold Spot. Another upcoming participant in the market was the former bottle of Coca-Cola, Pure Drinks.

“ PRODUCTION SETUP AT GR.NOIDA BRANCH OF PEPSI ”
Gr.Noida works in Varun Beverages works is a dedicated works for five major merchandises.
“ Shaping Absenteeism ”
Absenteeism in short can be defined as a failure to describe to work.
- It is likely a symptom of low moral and worsening productiveness or small engagement at work as demonstrated by the employees remaining off from work.
- It refers to the failure on the portion of employees to describe to work through which they are scheduled to work. In other words an unauthorised absence constitutes absenteeism.
- It is referred to here in as failure of employees to describe to work when they are scheduled to work.
Understanding ABSENTEEISM OR INTRODUCTION TO ATTENDANCE MANAGEMENT
The direction of attending is an of import facet of supervising. The cost of absenteeism is greater than the direct payment of rewards and benefits made during the absence. Organization must besides see he indirect cost of staffing, programming, reframing, lost productiveness, diminished moral, bend over, chance cost. The indirect cost frequently exceeds the direct cost of absenteeism. Effective supervisory attempts in attending direction will impact a comparatively little per centum of employees but will bring forth significant nest eggs, increased productiveness and moral.
“ TYPES OF ABSENTEEISM ”
There are two types of absenteeism, each of which requires a different type of approach-
- Innocent Absenteeism: – guiltless absenteeism refers to employees who are absent for grounds beyond their control illness and hurt. Innocent absenteeism is non blameworthy i.e. blameless. In a labour dealingss context this means that it can non be remedied of or treated by disciplinary steps.
- Blameworthy Absenteeism: – it refers to employees who are absent without mandate for grounds, which are within their control. For case, an employee who is on ill leave even without being so and it can turn out so ; he/she is guilty of blameworthy absenteeism. To be blameworthy is to be blamable. In labour relation context this means that progressive action can be taken. For the big bulk of employees, absenteeism is legitimate, guiltless absenteeism, which occurs infrequently. Procedures for disciplinary action apply merely to blameworthy absenteeism. Many organisations rake the position that through the procedure of single absentee guidance and intervention, the bulk of employees will get the better of their jobs and return to an acceptable degree of regular attending.
“ Calculation OF ABSENTEEISM ”
The rate of absenteeism is expressed as the per centum of man-days lost through absence to the entire figure of adult male yearss scheduled in a given period.
As we know, employees are the twenty-first century organisation ‘s greatest assets. Accountants are even adding human capital to the balance sheet. Absenteeism is a cosmopolitan job in an industry. It becomes a job when it exceeds 10 % as it disturbs the production agendas and creates many jobs. Personnel Research surveies have farther revealed that: –
- The yearss before and after a vacation are apt to higher rate of absenteeism.
- Employees who belong to local country are absent more frequently than foreigners.
- Bad conditions increases rate of absenteeism, particularly among employees who live at distant topographic points.
- Employees under the age of 25 old ages and above the age of 55 old ages are absent more frequently than those in the age group of 26 to 55 old ages.
- Operative employees are absent more often than the supervisors and directors.
The higher the rate of wage and greater the length of services of the employees , the fewer the absences.
“ FACTORS CAUSING ABSENTEEISM ”
The causes of absenteeism are many and include: –
- Major accidents and unwellness
- Low morale
- Poor working conditions
- Boredom on the occupation
- Lack of occupation satisfaction
- Inadequate leading and hapless supervising
- Personal jobs
- Poor physical fittingness
- Inadequate nutrition
- Transportation system jobs
- The being of income protection programs
- Work burden
- Employee discontent with a corporate bargaining procedure and its consequences.
Although both pschyiological and non- pschyiological factors contribute to it, the findings of Indian surveies appear to hold slightly greater accent on non-pschyiological 1s.
The workers in Indian industries found that chronic absenteeism was related to: –
- The extent of workers designation with the company.
- Integration with work group.
- Satisfaction with supervisors.
- Belief in the hereafter of the company.
On the other manus there are few psychological factors as the major causes of absenteeism of Indian industrial workers. Such factors are hapless wellness, conveyance trouble, do jobs, and indebtness etc.
“ HOW ABSENTEEISM CAN BE CONTROLLED ”
The definition of absenteeism, factors impacting and its causes are rather clear. What is non so clear is how to take affirmatory actions to command it. Traditional methods of absenteeism control based merely on disciplinary processs have proven to be uneffective. It is about impossible to make a just disciplinary action because even good run disciplinary systems, which treat which dainty similar actions in systematically similar ways are seen as unjust. The ground for this is discipline entirely normally identifies the root cause of absenteeism. Every employee who takes clip off in rebelliousness of company ordinances has grounds, right or incorrect which justify to themselves the legitimacy of their actions. Unless the direction attending programme identifies and addresses the cause of employees ‘ absenteeism it will be uneffective and unjust. Now, if absenteeism is to be controlled the physical and physical and emotional demands of employees must be addressed.
The intent of attending direction is to develop a willingness on the portion of all our employees to go to work on a regular basis and to help them in actuating their colleagues to go to work on a regular basis. Now, this can be done by-
- Addressing the physical and emotional demands of our employees.
- Communicating the attending ends of the organisation so employees can understand and place with them.
- Covering with instances of inordinate absenteeism efficaciously and reasonably so disincentive can happen.
Successful disposal of an attending direction plan requires directors and supervisors to be cognizant of and make work environment in which the followers can be actualized
- The greater the extent to which persons identify their ends with the ends of the organisation the greater their motive to be regular in attending.
- The more people find their occupations meaningful to them, the greater their motive to be regular in attending.
- As employees workload additions due to the absence of a colleague, equal force per unit area is exerted on the absent co=worker to go to work on a regular basis.
- The more people like working for the organisation the higher their motive to go to on a regular basis. Recognition of good employee attending helps better attending.
- Employees will hold a lower absence ratio if they fail they fail face to discourse their on the occupation jobs with their supervisors.
- Employees with a low absence ratio have attitudes of compliance and ‘team spirit ‘ .
- Low absence ratio employee is more satisfied.
Like employees turnover, there is evitable and ineluctable absenteeism. Absenteeism is ineluctable when the employee himself falls ill, his dependents at place all of a sudden become ailing or there is an accident inside the works. Ineluctable absenteeism is accepted by directors and is even sanctioned by labour Torahs. For insisting, one twenty-four hours of leave with rewards for every 20 yearss of service is allowed by the mills act, 1948.
Evitable absenteeism arises because of dark displacement, chances for moonlighting and gaining excess income awkwardness, deficiency of occupation security, occupation satisfaction and unfriendly supervising. This absenteeism needs step ining by the direction. Directors should take stairss to take causes of absenteeism. On the positive side, directors must make a work environment which will do the employees realize that it make sense to work in the mill instead than remain at place and blow their time.Moreover, the direction must hold a safety program, implement it and measure its effectivity.
“ Consequence OF ABSENTEEISM ON AN ORGANIZATION ”
“ Degrees of absenteeism beyond the normal scope in any organisation have a direct impact on that organisation effectivity and efficiency. ”
It is evidently hard for an organisation to run swimmingly and to accomplish its ends if its employees fail to describe to their occupations. The work programs is disrupted and often-important determinations are delayed. In organisation that relies to a great extent on assembly- line production, absenteeism can be more than a break: it can ensue in the drastic diminution in the end product and in some instances it can convey about a complete closure of the production. But degrees of absenteeism beyond the normal scope in any organisation have a direct impact on its efficiency.
Apart from the above viewed fact the most of import job faced is related with that of the cost of absenteeism! Many organisations set aside about 3 % of budget for absenteeism. This makes an norm of about 8 yearss a twelvemonth per employee. If absenteeism is above your budgeted figure or certain employee exceed the mean in your organisation so this indicates that you have an absenteeism job. However, even if absenteeism is below it a focussed attempt will probably give improved attending.
The cost of absenteeism leads to: –
Decrease in productivity-
- Employees may be transporting an excess work load or back uping new staff.
- Employees may be requires to achieve and orientate new or replacement workers.
- Staff ethical motives and employee service may endure.
- Payment of overtime may ensue.
- Cost of self-insured income protection programs must be borne plus the ways cost replacing employees.
- Premium cost may lift for insured programs.
- Staff clip is required to procure replacing employees.
- Staff clip is required to keep and command absenteeism.
“ Make ABSENTEEISM IS REALLY BAD? ”
Although most absenteeism has a negative impact on the organisation, we can gestate of state of affairss in which the organisation may profit by an employee ‘s voluntarily taking non to come to work. For case, unwellness, weariness or extra emphasis can significantly diminish an employee ‘s productiveness. In occupations in which an employee demands to be watchful it may good be better for the organisation if the employees does non describe to work instead than demo up and execute ill. The cost of an accident in such occupations could be prohibitory. Even in the direction occupations, where errors are less dramatic, public presentation may be improved. When directors are absent themselves from occupations instead than do a hapless determination under emphasis. But these illustrations are clearly a typical for the most past, we can presume that organisation benefits when employee absenteeism is low! !
“ Decision ”
Recent studies have shown: –
- The higher the rate of wages the greater the length of service of the employee, the fewer the absence.
- As an organisation grows, there is a inclination towards higher rate of absenteeism.
- Womans are absent more frequent than work forces.
- Single employees are absent more often than married employees.
- Younger employees are absent more often than older employees but the latter are absent for longer period of clip.
- Unionized organisation has higher absenteeism rates than non-union organisations.
- Logical mentality towards assorted jobs was more outstanding among regular attendants than absentees.
- Emotionally surcharged statements were more frequent among absentees.
- Absentee group was found to hold apathetic attitude, whereas regular worker showed more critical thought towards their work.
Attendance betterment plans can work! What the employees want is commitment and support from all degrees of direction, an effectual attending record-keeping system, audience and unfastened communicating on the grounds for the attending plans.
Implementing and keeping a work environment where unfastened communicating and squad spirit can boom will at first sometimes seem a mammoth and unrealistic undertaking. If you need encouragement merely see some of the benefits ; reduced absenteeism, unfastened communicating, squad spirit, advanced grudges and greater employee satisfaction.
“ RESEARCH METHODOLOGY ”
Research in common idiom refers to a hunt for cognition. One can besides specify research as a scientific and systematic hunt for pertinent information on a specific subject. In fact, research is an art of scientific probe. It is the chase of truth with the aid of surveies, observation, comparing and experiment. In short the hunt for cognition through nonsubjective and systematic method of happening solution to a job is research.
Harmonizing to Clifford Woody, “ Research comprises specifying and redefining jobs, explicating hypothesis or suggested solutions, roll uping, forming and measuring informations, doing tax write-offs and making decisions to find whether they fit the formulating hypothesis ” .
A research design is an agreement of conditions for connexions and analysis of informations in a mode that aims to unite relevancy to the research intent with economic system in process. Research design is a program that specifies the beginnings and types of information relevant to the research job. It is a scheme stipulating which attack will be used for assemblage and analysing the information. In fact, it is the conceptual construction with which research is conducted ; it constitutes the bluish print for the aggregation, measuring and analysis of informations. The program is an lineation to research strategy on which the research worker Idaho to work. The construction of the research is a more specific lineation or the strategy. The scheme shows how the research will be carried out, stipulating the method to be used in roll uping informations.
TYPES OF RESEARCH DESIGN
Research design is chiefly of three types: –
- Exploratory research
- Descriptive research
- Experimental research
EXPLORATORY RESEARCH: – It is frequently the initial measure in the series of surveies designed to provide information for decision-making. The chief intent of this research is for explicating the job for more precise probe or of developing a working hypothesis from an operational point of position. The major accent in such surveies is on the find of thoughts and penetrations.
DESCRIPTIVE RESEARCH: – It includes studies and investigative questions. The descriptive research is typically concerned with finding the frequences with which something occurs or finding the grade to which variables is associated. It is guided by an initial hypothesis.
EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH: – In this some variables are manipulated to detect their consequence on other variables. Experiment is defined as a procedure where events occur in a scene at the discretion of the experiment and controls are used to place the beginning of discrepancies in the topic. Thus they are those where the research worker tests the hypothesis of the causal relationship between variables.
The research undertaken by me in this undertaking is a descriptive research
The research methodological analysis adopted for the undertaking can be stated as follows –
- An extended survey of the subject through assorted beginnings like cyberspace, books and work done on some subjects
- A questionnaire was prepared to analyse the degree of absenteeism in VBL.
- Collection of questionnaire took topographic point after a twosome of hebdomads to analyse informations
- All the responses were studied and certain findings and recommendation were given.
- A item and systematic study was prepared.
Sampling is used to roll up primary informations when the beginning of informations is far excessively many to be wash uping handled. Sampling is the built-in portion of informations aggregation procedure.
The manner of choosing a sample is known as sample design. It is the definite program for obtaining a sample from a given population. It may every bit good put down the figure of points to be included in the sample i.e. the size of the sample.
Sample design is determined before informations are collected.
METHODS OF DATA COLLECTION
The key for utile systems is the choice of the method for roll uping informations and associating it to analysis and determination issue of the action to be taken. The truth of the collected information is of great importance for pulling correct and valid decision from elaborate probes.
There are two types of informations viz. primary and secondary.
