inception has been at the forefront of technology and has steered the course of the telecom sector
in the country with its world class products and services.

Bharti Airtel has been leveraging the Gallup employee engagement framework to drive business

                      Industry Profile




                   TELECOMMUNICATION INDUSTRY


The telecommunications industry is responsible for radio, television, voice communications, and
broadband services. The growth and innovation of the telecom industry has enabled people to


                                           Page 7
EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT AT BHARTI AIRTEL LTD.


communicate across the globe and access endless amounts of information over the internet.
Broadband services are becoming faster and easier to access with fiber optic networks and
wireless services like WiMax and CDMA. Many of the major telecom companies have merged
over the last 10 years in order to offer massive product and service portfolios, as well as further
capitalize on bundled media packages ('triple play"). These new technologies and growth through
mergers are enabling these companies to find new revenue sources and growth opportunities in a
mostly mature market.

World‘s telecom industry is an uprising industry, proceeding towards a goal of achieving two
third of the world's telecom connections. Over the past few years information and
communications technology has changed in a dramatic manner and as a result of that world
telecom industry is going to be a booming industry. Substantial economic growth and mounting
population enable the rapid growth of this industry.

The telecommunications market is expected to rise at an 11 percent compound annual growth
rate at the end of year 2010. The leading telecom companies like AT&T, Vodafone, Verizon,
SBC Communications, Bell South, Qwest Communications are trying to take the advantage of
this growth. These companies are working on telecommunication fields like broadband
technologies, EDGE(Enhanced Data rates for Global Evolution) technologies, LAN-WAN inter
networking, optical networking, voice over Internet protocol, wireless data service etc.

The telecom industry is taking a crucial part of world economy. The total revenue earned from
this industry is 3 percent of the gross world products and is aiming at attaining more revenues.
One statistical report reveals that approximately 16.9% of the world population has access to the
Internet.

The telecom industry has grown and evolved at an incredible pace for the last 20 years,
dramatically changing the way people communicate and transforming everyday life along the
way. Mobile broadband subscribership has topped 200 million worldwide. And the rollout of 3G
networks in emerging markets means there is the potential for mobile broadband subscribers to
outnumber wireline broadband subscribers within the next decade.




This rapid growth has created a dynamic and competitive industry climate with continually
evolving technology and staggering financial stakes. The shift of revenue from fixed to mobile
and from voice to data is accelerating. Data and media are being untethered from specific devices
or networks. Powerful new mobile devices deliver a combination of functions previously
available only from multiple tools.

The telecommunications industry was comprised of a club of big national and regional operators.
Over the past decade, the industry has been swept up in rapid deregulation and innovation. In
many countries around the world, government monopolies are now privatized and they face a
plethora of new competitors. Traditional markets have been turned upside down, as the growth in
mobile services out paces the fixed line and the internet starts to replace voice as the staple
business.

                         Indian Telecom Industry
The India telecom market ranks among the fastest growing industries in the country. The
improvement in the standard of living and the development of infrastructure and connectivity are
some of the mains reasons for the significant growth of the telecom industry. The growth is
expected          to            be           more           over            the           years.

Presently, there are around 200 million telephone lines in India which make it the third largest
phone network in the world after China and the US. Today, the telecom market in India enjoys a
growth rate of around 45 % which is the highest in the whole world.

 India continues to be one of the fastest growing telecom markets in the world. Reforms
introduced by successive Indian governments over the last decade have dramatically changed the
nature of telecommunications in the country. The sector ranks second in the world, with over
225.7 million telephone subscriptions by 2008-end.The fast track growth of the Indian telecom
industry has made it a key contributor to India‘s progress. India adopted a phased approach for
reforming the telecom sector right from the beginning. Privatization was gradually introduced,
first in value-added services, followed by cellular and basic services. An independent regulatory
body, Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), was established to deal with competition
in a balanced manner.This gradual and thoughtful reform process in India has favored industry
growth. Today, there are more than 225 million telecom subscribers in India. Every month, 6-7
million new subscribers are added. Upcoming services such as 3G and WiMax will help to
further augment the growth rate. Furthermore, the Indian economy is slated to sustain its 7-9 per
cent growth rate in the near future. This is supported by the political stability that the country is
experiencing currently. India‘s demographic outlook makes it one of the largest markets in the
world. A conducive business environment is also created by a favorable regulatory regime.There
exists enormous business potential for telecom companies on account of the country‘s low
teledensity, which is close to 19 per cent presently. The Indian telecom industry is growing at the



fastest pace in the world and India is projected to be the second largest telecom market globally
by 2010

The Indian Telecommunications network with 200 million connections is the fifth largest in the
world and the second largest among the emerging economies of Asia. Today, it is the fastest
growing market in the world and represents unique opportunities for U.S. companies in the
stagnant global scenario.

History of India Telecom Market

It was in the year 1851 that the British first introduced telecommunication services in India
through operational land lines near Calcutta. Gradually, the telephone service was made
operational in the year 1881. After independence, the foreign telecommunication companies
were nationalized and the Posts, Telephone and Telegraph (PTT) Company was set up by the
Ministry                                 of                                 Communications.

In the year 1985, the Department of Telecommunications (DOT) was set up to provide domestic
and long distance telephone services. In the year 1986, the government established two
companies namely Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL) for metropolitan telephone
services and Videsh Sanchar Nigam Limited (VSNL) for international telephone services.

With the economic liberalization in the 1990s, the telecom market in India was also benefited to
a great extent. The service was improved and the tariffs were also significantly lowered. In the
year 1997, the government set up the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) to provide
a comprehensive telecom service in the country. In 1999, modification was brought to the policy
and the cellular services were introduced.

According to Broadband Policy 2004, Government of India aims at 9 million broadband
connections and 18 million internet connections by 2007. The wireless subscriber base has
jumped from 33.69 million in 2004 to 62.57 million in FY2004-2005. In the last 3 years, two out
of every three new telephone subscribers were wireless subscribers. Consequently, wireless now
accounts for 54.6% of the total telephone subscriber base, as compared to only 40% in 2003.
Wireless subscriber growth is expected to bypass 2.5 million new subscribers per month by
2007. The wireless technologies currently in use are Global System for Mobile Communications
(GSM) and Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA). There are primarily 9 GSM and 5 CDMA
operators providing mobile services in 19 telecom circles and 4 metro cities, covering 2000
towns across the country.

India added 113.26 million new customers in 2008, the largest globally. The country's cellular
base witnessed close to 50 per cent growth in 2008, with an average 9.5 million customers added
every month.

According to the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), the month of October 2009
saw telecom operators in India register a record number of 16.67 million new mobile subscribers.
The number, which combines GSM, CDMA and FWP subscribers, brings the total number of
wireless subscribers to 488.4 million as of October 2009.

In all, the country's total telephone subscriber base has increased 3.26 per cent, from 509.03
million in September 2009 to 525.65 million at the end of October 2009, according to TRAI,
which added that the overall tele-density (telephones per 100 people) has touched 44.87.

According to Business Monitor International, India is currently adding 8-10 million mobile
subscribers every month. It is estimated that by mid 2012, around half the country's population
will own a mobile phone. This would translate into 612 million mobile subscribers, accounting
for a tele-density of around 51 per cent by 2012.

It is projected that the industry will generate revenues worth US$ 43 billion in 2009-10.
Moreover, according to a study conducted by Nokia, the communications sector is expected to
emerge as the single largest component of the country's GDP with 15.4 per cent by 2014.

The Indian equipment market is estimated at US$ 24 billion in FY09. Finnish giant Nokia is the
market leader, with over US$ 3.4 billion revenues last fiscal, followed by Ericsson at US$ 2.11
billion. With the availability of the 3G spectrum, about 275 million Indian subscribers will use
3G-enabled services, and the number of 3G-enabled handsets will reach close to 395 million by
2013-end, estimates the latest report by Evalueserve.

According to a Frost & Sullivan industry analyst, by 2012, fixed line revenues are expected to
touch US$ 12.2 billion while mobile revenues will reach US$ 39.8 billion in India.

Value-Added Services Market

Currently, mobile value-added services (MVAS) in India accounts for 10 per cent of the
operator's revenue, which is expected to reach 18 per cent by 2010. According to a study by
Stanford University and consulting firm BDA, the Indian MVAS is poised to touch US$ 2.74
billion by 2010.




Major Investments

The booming domestic telecom market has been attracting huge amounts of investment which is
likely to accelerate with the entry of new players and launch of new services.

Indian telecom market in the near future, and is looking to spread its risks by entering new
geographies (Bharti-MTN deal is discussed in Industry Update Section).

With 12-13 players present in the market there would be a severe pressure on margins. Be it an
Aircel or Etisalat, the new operators would not remain fringe players in the Indian market, but
would try and rock the applecart of existing operators. The growth in Indian market could start
tapering off very soon.

According to an industry expert the subscriber base will not expand beyond 800 million in
coming years from current number 400 million. There have been talks about 3G and IPTV
pushing growth, but it all seems far-fetched. The third generation of mobile services (3G) will be
used by telcos to gain more spectrum. Besides, the services will be used only in urban areas.

Throughout the world, telecom industry are being controlled by private companies instead of
government monopolies. Traditional telecom technologies are also being replaced by modern
wireless technologies, specifically in case of mobile services. One of the major objectives
oftelecom industry is to enhance the quality and speed of Internet technology.


These days, telecom industry is more concerned with texts and images (Internet technologies),
rather than voice (telephone service). Most of the research works are going on Internet
accessibility, specifically on data applications and broadband services. The other major division



of telecom industry is mobile network sector, where lots of innovative research works are going
on. Previously the traditional telephone calls used to earn the maximum revenues, but these days
mobile service is going to replace traditional telephone services.

       Reliance Infocomm

BSNL (Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited)

On October 1, 2000 the Department of Telecom Operations, Government of India became a
corporation and was renamed Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL). BSNL is now India‘s
leading Telecommunications Company and the largest public sector undertaking. It has a
network of over 45 million lines covering 5000 towns with over 35 million telephone
connections.

The state-controlled BSNL operates basic, cellular (GSM and CDMA) mobile, Internet and long
distance services throughout India (except Delhi and Mumbai). BSNL will be expanding the
network in line with the Tenth Five-Year Plan (1992-97). The aim is to provide a telephone
density of 9.9 per hundred by March 2007. BSNL, which became the third operator of GSM
mobile services in most circles, is now planning to overtake Bharti to become the largest GSM
operator in the country. BSNL is also the largest operator in the Internet market, with a share of
21 per cent of the entire subscriber base

MTNL

MTNL was set up on 1st April 1986 by the Government of India to upgrade the quality of
telecom services, expand the telecom network, introduce new services and to raise revenue for
telecom development needs of India‘s key metros – Delhi, the political capital, and Mumbai, the
business capital. In the past 17 years, the company has taken rapid strides to emerge as India‘s
leading and one of Asia‘s largest telecom operating companies. The company has also been in
the forefront of technology induction by converting 100% of its telephone exchange network into
the state-of-the-art digital mode. The Govt. of India currently holds 56.25% stake in the
company. In the year 2003-04, the company's focus would be not only consolidating the gains
but also to focus on new areas of enterprise such as joint ventures for projects outside India,
entering into national long distance operation, widening the cellular and CDMA-based WLL
customer base, setting up internet and allied services on an all India basis.

MTNL has over 5 million subscribers and 329,374 mobile subscribers. While the market for
fixed wireline phones is stagnating, MTNL faces intense competition from the private players—
Bharti, Hutchison and Idea Cellular, Reliance Infocomm—in mobile services. MTNL recorded
sales of Rs. 60.2 billion ($1.38 billion) in the year 2002-03, a decline of 5.8 per cent over the
previous year‘s annual turnover of Rs. 63.92 billion.

RELIANCE INFOCOMM

Reliance is a $16 billion integrated oil exploration to refinery to power and textiles conglomerate
(Source: http://www.ril.com/newsitem2.html). It is also an integrated telecom service provider
with licenses for mobile, fixed, domestic long distance and international services. Reliance
Infocomm offers a complete range of telecom services, covering mobile and fixed line telephony
including broadband, national and international long distance services, data services and a wide
range of value added services and applications. Reliance IndiaMobile, the first of Infocomm's
initiatives was launched on December 28, 2002. This marked the beginning of Reliance's vision
of ushering in a digital revolution in India by becoming a major catalyst in improving quality of
life and changing the face of India. Reliance Infocomm plans to extend its efforts beyond the
traditional value chain to develop and deploy telecom solutions for India's farmers, businesses,
hospitals, government and public sector organizations. Until recently, Reliance was permitted to
provide only ―limited mobility‖ services through its basic services license. However, it has now
acquired a unified access license for 18 circles that permits it to provide the full range of mobile
services. It has rolled out its CDMA mobile network and enrolled more than 6 million
subscribers in one year to become the country‘s largest mobile operator. It now wants to increase
its market share and has recently launched pre-paid services. Having captured the voice market,
it intends to attack the broadband market.

TATA TELESERVICES

Tata Teleservices is a part of the $12 billion Tata Group, which has 93 companies, over 200,000
employees and more than 2.3 million shareholders. Tata Teleservices provides basic (fixed line
services), using CDMA technology in six circles: Maharashtra (including Mumbai), New Delhi,
Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Gujarat, and Karnataka. It has over 800,000 subscribers. It has
now migrated to unified access licenses, by paying a Rs. 5.45 billion ($120 million) fee, which
enables it to provide fully mobile services as well. The company is also expanding its footprint,
and has paid Rs. 4.17 billion ($90 million) to DoT for 11 new licenses under the IUC
(interconnect usage charges) regime. The new licenses, coupled with the six circles in which it
already operates, virtually gives the CDMA mobile operator a national footprint that is almost on
par with BSNL and Reliance Infocomm. The company hopes to start off services in these 11 new
circles by August 2004. These circles include Bihar, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Kerala,
Kolkata, Orissa, Punjab, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh (East) & West and West Bengal.

Idea
Indian regional operator IDEA Cellular Ltd. has a new ownership structure and grand designs to
become a national player, but in doing so is likely to become a thorn in the side of Reliance
Communications Ltd. IDEA operates in eight telecom ―circles,‖ or regions, in Western India,
and has received additional GSM licenses to expand its network into three circles in Eastern

                                     WORK PROFILE
I joined Airtel Enterprise Services Corporate (one of the strategic business unit of Bharti Airtel
Ltd.) on 17th September‘09 as a management trainee in the HR Department.

I was given the role of ―EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT‖


                          EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT
Employee engagement, also called work engagement or worker engagement, is a business
management concept. An "engaged employee" is one who is fully involved in, and enthusiastic
about, his or her work, and thus will act in a way that furthers their organization's interests.

Employee engagement is the thus the level of commitment and involvement an employee has
towards their organization and its values. An engaged employee is aware of business context,
and works with colleagues to improve performance within the job for the benefit of the
organization. The organization must work to develop and nurture engagement, which requires a
two-way relationship between employer and employee.‘ Thus Employee engagement is a
barometer that determines the association of a person with the organization

Three basic aspects of employee engagement according to the global studies are:-

       The employees and their own unique psychological make up and experience
       ·The employers and their ability to create the conditions that promote employee
        engagement
       Interaction between employees at all levels.

Thus it is largely the organization‘s responsibility to create an environment and culture
conducive to this partnership, and a win-win equation.

Engagement is important for managers to cultivate given that disengagement or alienation is
central to the problem of workers‘ lack of commitment and motivation. Meaningless work is
often associated with apathy and detachment from ones works. In such conditions, individuals
are thought to be estranged from their selves .Other Research using a different resource of
engagement (involvement and enthusiasm) has linked it to such variables as employee turnover,
customer satisfaction – loyalty, safety and to a lesser degree, productivity and profitability
criteria.

HR practitioners believe that the engagement challenge has a lot to do with how employee feels
about the about work experience and how he or she is treated in the organization. It has a lot to
do with emotions which are fundamentally related to drive bottom line success in a company.
There will always be people who never give their best efforts no matter how hard HR and line
managers try to engage them. ―But for the most part employees want to commit to companies

because doing so satisfies a powerful and a basic need in connect with and contribute to
something significant‖.

An organization‘s capacity to manage employee engagement is closely related to its ability to
achieve high performance levels and superior business results. Some of the advantages of
Engaged employees are


       Engaged employees will stay with the company, be an advocate of the company and its
       products and services, and contribute to bottom line business success.
       They will normally perform better and are more motivated.
       There is a significant link between employee engagement and profitability.
       They form an emotional connection with the company. This impacts their attitude
       towards the company‘s clients, and thereby improves customer satisfaction and service
       levels

       Increases employees‘ trust in the organization
       Creates a sense of loyalty in a competitive environment
       Provides a high-energy working environment
       Boosts business growth
       Makes the employees effective brand ambassadors for the company

A highly engaged employee will consistently deliver beyond expectations. Thus employee
engagement is critical to any organization that seeks to retain valued employees. The Watson
Wyatt consulting companies has been proved that there is an intrinsic link between employee
engagement, customer loyalty, and profitability. As organizations globalize and become more
dependent on technology in a virtual working environment, there is a greater need to connect and
engage with employees to provide them with an organizational ‗identity.‘

       Problem Faced During the Traning :

During the training, the HR Department faced a problem regarding the training. Before
conducting a training the HR department informs all the employees about the trainings to be held
for the month and then seeks the nominations from the employees regarding participation. After
receiving the conformations from the employees, the training is conducted.

During one of the training ―Building Collaborative Relations‖ the HR Team got nominations
from 12 participants. On the day of training nobody turned up and we had to cancel the training.
Though the training got cancelled but the amount was debited to the company‘s account which
was a loss to the company.


So for the next training to be held, firstly HR Team seek the confirmation for the employee
participation from their reporting managers. After receiving the confirmation from the reporting

Bharti Airtel Limited (popularly known as Airtel) is the flagship company of The Bharti
Enterprises. A telecom giant, it is the pioneer and the leading brand name in the private telecom
service providers with its services spanning 94 cities. It is divided and organized in mobile
services, Airtel telemedia services and enterprise services (corporate and carrier) services
business divisions.

Airtel values its human resources and its HR policies are aimed at targeting and retaining best
talent in the industry. With the focus on the same, Airtel also has a Bharti Campus Recruitment
Program to recruit young students from various elite campuses



The key functions of the HR Committee include the followings:


       Attraction and Retention strategies for employees.

       Employees Development Strategies.

       Compensation (including salaries and salary adjustments, incentives/benefits bonuses,
       stock options) and performance targets for the Chairman and Managing Director (CMD)
       and Joint Managing Directors (JMDs) Executive Directors.

       All Human Resources related issue.

       Other key issues / matters as may be referred by the Board or as may be necessary in
       view of Clause 49 of the Listing Agreement or any statutory provisions.

       Measurement is indeed a key driver of business within Airtel. A philosophy of constant
       monitoring has been established. `Measurement Boards' for every department are
       prominently displayed where the performance indicators of the same are displayed
       graphically; Airtel's HR success was powered by a well defined rewards and recognition
       system. This was backed by a strong training programme. ``Unlike most other
       organizations, we let our employees decide their training needs. And if the individual
       does not know what his training needs are, then we don't need him,'' says Nayar.

       To encourage learning within the organization, the company has set up a state-of-the-art
       learning centre. Here, employees can get logged on to customized training programmes
       developed by British Telecom (BT). Though the material is transmitted through the
       Internet, they are not accessible to anybody outside the organisation as the access is
       protected. Airtel also seeks to certify every employee on quality and IT. ``

       Eventually, there are the performance-related bonuses that set the tone for these activities.
       Padhi informs us that 60 per cent of the employees are on a variable pay structure, and
       that explains the success Airtel has had in business and HRD.

       The HR department also sets up cross-functional teams in times of product or service
       launches. ``Such teams typically constitute high performers from each department, who
       collectively make it happen,''

     To further HR interface, every member of the HR department has been assigned two
     departments each to discuss and sort out all HR, personnel and administration issues.

                                   SUMMARY
Employee Engagement is the buzz word term for employee communication. It is a positive
attitude held by the employees towards the organization and its values. It is rapidly gaining
popularity, use and importance in the workplace and impacts organizations in many ways.
The company hasn‘t laid out the importance of Employee engagement on the success of a
business. Airtel has thus recognized employees, more than any other variable, as powerful
contributors to a company's competitive position.

We would hence conclude that Airtel believes in raising and maintaining employee engagement
that requires a perfect blend of time, effort, commitment and investment to craft a successful
endeavor.
