employee largely determines his satisfaction level. It is always desired to treat employees in a

each week, it's important for companies to try to optimize working conditions. Such things as
providing spacious work areas rather than cramped ones, adequate lighting and comfortable
work stations contribute to favourable work conditions.

(vii) Opportunity for Advancement: Employees are more satisfied with their current job if
they see a path available to move up the ranks in the company and be given more
responsibility and along with it higher compensation. Many companies encourage employees

Importance of Employee Satisfaction


Employee satisfaction is the term used to describe a situation when employees are satisfied
and contented with his job and the office environment. Employee Satisfaction is of utmost
importance in any organisation be it small or large. Thinking that employee satisfaction is
important only for the employee then it is not right. It is equally important for the
organisation for which the employee is working as well.

The following points will show the importance of employee satisfaction easily.

repeatedly.

Money spent on training new candidates and recruitment of new candidates can be
saved extensively.

When the employee gets satisfactory services from the company initially, he tends to
believe that same treatment would be offered in long run.

issues.

The employee starts feeling a sense of responsibility towards the organisation.

The employee deals with customers in a better way and builds strong relations with

Training and Development in HCL


Induction training is an important component of the training life cycle. Induction Training for
new hires is vital to ensure that they settle in well in the organization. Our aim is to ascertain
that new hires understand our organizations mission, goals, values and philosophy; and
importantly their job role as expected in a professional environment. This training aims to
establish a clear foundation and set expectations around work ethics, integrity and
responsibility. With this in mind, we have customized our training to suit different levels i.e.
Entry Level hires and Lateral hires.

EntryLevelTraining
At HCL, all Campus Hires undergo a foundation technical training which covers business
aligned software engineering and programming concepts, followed by one of the many
technical tracks. The training delivered is in accordance with the syllabus developed in
consultation with business leaders and subject matter experts (SMEs). The Assessment
Framework consists of tests administered right at various stages, a Final Test and a project.

The Entry-level Training program for fresh graduates from the campuses consists of a
Foundation module and six standard Technical Tracks (CC++, Java, Dot Net, Oracle,

12

Networking, and Testing). At the end of the classroom-training program, the fresh graduates
work on a project. The project is a training module designed for entry-level trainees to apply
the technology learnings they have acquired during the trainer-led classroom-training
program.
By applying a blend of technology and process, we ensure that trainees assigned to projects
have a basic understanding of software engineering processes and tools (such as Bugzilla and
Subversion) in addition to the technology skills they have been trained in. Along with
technical skills, all campus recruits attend a Professional Skills Program, which prepares
them to interface and engage with colleagues and customers across the globe.
On the successful completion of the training program, the trainees are assigned to Delivery

them and recognises them as individuals. Hence I conclude that employee satisfaction is must
for every organisation and keeping the employees happy and motivated will lead to
achievement of the desired objectives and will lead to improvement in performance and
better productivity. Loyalty and performance should be rewarded by providing opportunities
for career development.
