SWOT ANALYSIS
Strengths of Telenor
Multinational company Basically it is a Norway base company working in more than in 14 Countries, including in Pakistan. Telenor is a multi-national company. So it can bear losses due to the heavy finance in hand. Telenor came in 2004 but got the second position in investment in Pakistan after mobilink.

Increasing market Share Hold 24% Market share according to May-2010 and centralized structured, but always follow the culture of every region. Telenor has also 100% ownership in every country.

Less no. of complaints Telenor is growing its network very rapidly but not have that much complaint as other have. Most complaints are related to Mobilink and Ufone.

Human Resource Management

High customer service People feel very confident while connecting to the call centre services. They care the expectations, questions and suggestions to ensure the full satisfaction of the customers.

WEAKNESSES
Telenor is growing company and do not have many weaknesses. Signals poor quality Market share of the Telenor is increasing day by day and the quality of the signals is not matching its standards which was one year before. Telenor have the coverage almost in the whole country including the big cities and highways and now it is reaching to the small villages and remote areas. Mobilink has the largest coverage but Telenor is expanding its network very fatly.

Opportunities
Investment in Easy paisa Telenor has the opportunity to invest more in the easy paisa market. Yet only Telenor is present in this market but in future many companies can also enter. So to maintain its position Telenor must invest more in this market as well.

Other projects Due to the heavy competition now days, Telenor should invest in other major projects as well.

Human Resource Management

Threats
Tough competition Now days, there is very tough competition regarding customers due to the entrance of the many companies. As mobilink is the market leader in telecom sector, so telenor has a big threat from mobilink.

New entrants As telecom sector is the growing sector in Pakistan, so Telenor has also threat of new multinational companies in the telecom sector. Brand image As we know that Telenor is the Denmarks company and people of the Denmark has made some serious issues about our beloved prophet Hazrat Muhammad SAL-LALAH HU ALEH WASALLAM. So the brand image of Telenor has reduced due to that. So there is very big threat of this from the people of Pakistan.

Human Resource Management


interested employees apply for that job according to their specification. Then if the HR department matches those specifications with their criteria the employee is hired to that job.

Implication on the Organization


In the above paragraphs we discuss the theoretical background of the HR department strategies. In theoretical background we discuss the strategies of HR department and then we relate them the theory which we have read in books and in our class. After the theoretical background of the HR department we discuss some latest development in the HR department and in overall organization. In which we discuss how Telenor is increasing its business day-by-day and how it is contributing in the economy of the Pakistan. How it is providing better services to its customers.

Human Resource Management


Now if we talk about the implication of the strategies of HR department in our project which is on the topic Testing and Selecting we can easily say that Telenor has strong HR department which is working very efficiently. It has strong testing and selecting system. It has different procedures to select or hire an employee. These procedures are testing which include written test and then there is interviews some time there are more than one interview but it depends on the nature of the job. Telenor has a system that if someone wants to send his/her CV to Telenor he/she simply upload his/her CV to the Telenor website. When Telenor wants to hire some people they check wether the uploaded CVs are according to their job description, if they are according the job description then they select them for the screening and testing then they have full procedure for selecting the employee which we discuss above. When Telenor has to fill some post HR department analysis the job position if such vacancy can be filled with the existing employee they can hire such employee but mostly they advertise such job in the organization so if any employee is interested in that job he/she can apply for this job then its duty of the HR department that they will hire the best person for the job. If we talk about that who heads the HR department or who he responsible for the implementation of the strategies of the organization. Then it is Vice President of Telenor who heads the HR department and then HR departments have many managers who heads many departments and responsible for that departments. These managers have to report to head of the HR department. As Telenor is a big organization thats why it needs its own HR department and thats why they are not using outside sources. Telenor primarily focus on the long run need of the HR department thats why it has its own HR department. It is duty of the HR department to analysis the staffing need and then fulfill that need. To fill the vacancies HR department or managers have to follow the guideline or rules by the HR head. HR department have different procedure to evaluate the performance of the employee. In Telenor they did it by filing the performance evaluation form from the colleagues and from the subordinates. In Telenor appraisal are given on the basis of the job performance. Now if we talk about the promotion system in the Telenor, then promotions are done on the basis of the performance of the employees not the seniority based. If any employee is performing well than there is much chances of his/her promotion. When any employee select

Human Resource Management


for the promotion then his/her willingness is not important but if someone have some problem regarding this promotion then he can withdraw his/her name from the promotion. As Telenor is a big organization and have many employees but the number of grievances among employees is very low. Telenor has a complete procedure to fulfill the requirement of the employees. If any employees have any grievances or complaints then he/she can contact with the HR department for the solution of the problems or grievances. HR department have employees for solving the grievances or problems of the employees. Number of grievances is declining in Telenor. The reason for this is that Telenore is fulfilling their basic need that is why we can see that many people prefer Telenor for the job.

Conclusion From all of the above discussion now we can conclude that HR department of Telenor is working very efficiently. It is fully contributing to fulfill the organizations mission, objectives and strategic plans. HR department has proper rules and regulations which they follow to hire, fire or to promote any employee. They have proper procedure of hiring the employee. In HR department there is no such latest development. As we know Telenor is an international company so its management is very good and there is no such problem in HR department that being solved or in procedure of solving by the organization.
As we discuss about the Telenor in our view point Telenor is a good organization. It has proper system and all of its employees are working very efficiently thats why it is progressing day by day.

Human Resource Management


It is providing many incentives to their employee thats why there are less grievances among the employee. Telenor has many franchises nationwide to provide best services to the customers. Because of the better services of Telenor number of customers is increasing. There is no such problems which HR department is facing but the problem that they are facing is that, as we know there are less jobs in the market and every year many students passed from the different universities and everyone wants to get job so HR department receive much CV and it is very
