At CCL pharmaceutical (PVT) LTD job changing is processed in three different ways

  • Promotion
  • Transfer
  • Demotion


CCL pharmaceuticals (PVT) LTD is using Promotions based on merit, advance workers who are best qualified for the position, rather than those with the greatest seniority. When present employees are applying for a position, a worker’s past performance is also considered at CCL. CCL management is also using Effective performance appraisal to build trust in the system.


CCL managers are using merit base promotions to gain the following advantages.

  • To match Employee job-related abilities with jobs to be filled.
  • To reward Motivated and ambitious employees for outstanding performance.
  • To fostered the Performance.
  • To hire people for a specific job, rather than for ability to be promotable.


CCL management is considering the following points while transferring


  1. 1.      An employee who wishes to be transferred has to make a written request to his or her department head.
  2. 2.      At CCL a transfer is made without reduction in rate of pay unless such reduction is agreed to by the employee and the department administrator.
  3. 3.      At CCL the transfer of an employee does not affect his or her prior earned credited state service.
  4. 4.      As per there company policy whenever an employee requesting to transfer between departments, he must have to give interview, and also require written approval of the department administrator concerned.


In CCL pharmaceutical (PVT) LTD transfers are used mostly in marketing and sales department. Mostly due to the requirements of staff at a certain place or some times if top management thinks that some person has capabilities to handle a certain situation and market in a better way then they use to transfer that employee for growth of company and also for employee grooming.






In CCL (PVT) LTD an employee may be demoted, subject to the approval of the department head and the assistant HR manager. The department administrator can recommend the demotion of an employee for any of the following reasons:

  1. a.      The reallocation or reclassification of a class or position to a lower pay grade.
  2. b.      The elimination of the employee's position because of lack of work or lack of funds.
  3. c.       Expiration of a temporary promotional assignment.
  4. d.      The failure of the employee to complete successfully the probationary requirements of a higher position.


A department head submits the recommendation that an employee has to be demoted. After that a written notice is given to the employee and to the assistant HR manager. Management use to give notice of demotion at least 15 calendar days before its effective date and also give the reasons for the demotion to the employee who is subject to demotion.


When an employee is demoted, his or her salary is reduced to a step in the lower pay grade as recommended by the department administrator and the assistant Manager Human Resources. If demotion is due to failure to complete successfully the probationary requirements of the higher position then the salary after demotion will normally coincide with the salary the employee was receiving before promotion.




There are three types of separation with organization

1)      Layoff

2)      Termination

3)      Resignation

4)      Retirement


In layoff process CCL management, keep in mind that a layoff involves eliminating positions, not people.

Identifying the Least-Qualified Worker

CCL is using the process of identifying the least qualified worker for reduction in force.

Once they have identified the position to be eliminated, they use to determine who is the least qualified person to assume the remaining responsibilities in the business unit? First, they develop a list of all employees in that group with similar titles or responsibilities. For example, if they are looking to eliminate one of three executive assistant positions in there marketing department, then they use to list all the assistants in the department on a sheet of paper.

In second step they use to review the nature of the remaining work to be done after the position will be eliminate. For example, if the executive assistant position reporting to the vice president of marketing is being considered for elimination, then they use to document the responsibilities that will remain in the unit after the RIF. They use Job descriptions for such comparisons.

Then they use to determine which one of the three executive assistants is the least qualified to assume those remaining duties. In essence, they use to compare the essential job responsibilities, skills, knowledge and abilities, of all three employees. In addition, they use to review the employees annual performance reviews, tenure and history of progressive discipline to create the appropriate written record. They also use to review their work experience prior to joining there firm, so that tenure alone doesn't outweigh other considerations.

Finally, once they have the documented comparison for the three employees who could potentially qualify to perform the remaining work, they use to determine who is the least qualified individual and then they use to lay off that worker.


At CCL termination mostly occurs due to poor job performance, lack of "fit" with the organization, inability to perform job responsibilities and misconduct. Some times they use termination for restructuring, downsizing, relocation, or acquisition. In CCL pharmaceutical PVT) LTD an employee can be terminating on the following bases

  • absenteeism
  • unsatisfactory performance
  • changed job requirements
  • Gross misconduct (which might involve drug abuse, stealing, or other breaches of company or public policy.)


CCL pharmaceuticals (PVT) LTD is using the following steps in behavior related termination

  • CCL has Developed a clear, written policies for termination and they are following them unswervingly. These policies are readily accessible to employees in an employee handbook. The termination guidelines include definitions of poor performance and gross misconduct, detailed descriptions of the review procedures that may lead to termination, and policies regarding severance and the return of company property.
  • When an employee has to be terminate then after deciding they use to conduct the termination meeting with the employee in a professional manner.
  • They use to give credit for positive contributions.

Then in the next step they use to prepare an information package for the terminated employee that outlines all elements of any severance package and other benefits.



In CCL whenever a permanent employee resigns he has to give resignation on one month prior notice. The resignation shall state the reason for the resignation and the desired effective date. Whenever an employee resigns his resignation is send to and countersigned by his or her immediate administrative supervisor. Then the resignation is submitted to the Top manager.

CCL's labor-management relations are based on mutual trust between labor and management. Following a labor dispute in 1980, mutual trust between labor and management was adopted as the foundation of labor-management relations in the joint labor and management declaration concluded in 1992.

Mutual Trust between Labor and Management

The basic concepts of mutual trust between labor and management are: improvements in the lives of employees are realized through the prosperity of the company, and labor and management thus share the same goal of company prosperity as a common value. Management will take into consideration to the greatest possible extent stable employment and will continuously strive to improve working conditions; and employees will compliance with the company's policies in order to promote the company's prosperity.

Basic Principles of Personnel Management

In order to create a relationship of mutual trust and respect between labor and management, personnel management is conducted in accordance with four basic principles:

  1. Creating a workplace environment where employees can work with trust.
  2. Creating a mechanism for promoting constant and voluntary initiatives in continuous improvements
  3. Fully committed and thorough human resources development
  4. Promoting teamwork aimed at pursuit of individual roles and optimization of the entire team.

Stable Employment

CCL has established a number of hotlines for the fast and fair resolution of issues related to complaints. The employee awareness survey conducted every year indicates that "pride in the company" and "employee satisfaction" remains high.
