THE EFFECT OF JOB ROTATION ON EMPLOYEES PERFORMANCE

 

ABSTRACT

This project tests three possible explanations for why firms adopt job rotation: employee learning (rotation makes employees more versatile), employer learning (through rotation, employers learn more about individual workers’ strengths), and employee motivation (rotation mitigates boredom). Whereas previous studies have examined either establishment characteristics or a single firm’s personnel records, this study merges information from a detailed survey of Danish private sector firms with linked employer-employee panel data, allowing firm characteristics, work force characteristics, and firms’ human resource management practices to be included as explanatory variables. The results reject the employee motivation hypothesis, but support the employee learning and, especially, the employer learning hypotheses. Firms allocating more resources to training were more likely to rotate workers; rotation schemes were more common in less hierarchical firms and in firms with shorter average employee tenure; and both firm growth rates and firms’ use of nation-wide recruitment were positively associated with rotation schemes.

 

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1   BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY

Over the years reward and compensation have been a bone of contention both in the private and public organization on employees. This has generated a lot of argument, discussion and interest to an extent that it has became a highly sensitive topic. It is very obvious that employees can only put in their best at work when such employee is provided with a conducive working atmosphere conditions and job rotational activities which serve as stimulus to stir them (employees) to achieve organization set target goals and objective efficiently and effectively.

The essence of effect of job rotation is to provide a good platform for equity and fairness. They provide a challenging environment and increase employee and employee performance. Extrinsic needs of workers at all levels are the effect of job rotation which ensures that both the intrinsic are adequately provided for. This is because it develops organizations integrated policy, procedure and practice. Thus, it is an important signal of organization culture and valve so it’s important to the successful recruitment and retention of high caliber work force with adequate knowledge, skill and ability that supports the organization strategic goals and rotation employees in accordance to their contributions skills, competence and market worth.

Based on the definition of employees performance which cannot clearly be defined without going or under standing what reward and compensation do on an employee. when an employee’s reward or compensations which could come in farm of incautious like assurance etc with all these put in place, the employees would be motivated to work and put in all their best there by meeting the goals and targets of the organization. Therefore the success of an organization is based on good effect of job rotation in other to increase organization, productivity.

1.2 HISTORICAL BACKGROUND OF CONSOLIDATED BREWERIES PLC AWO-NMAMMA

Consolidated Breweries Plc, Nigeria’s third largest brewery and the producers of the quality brands “33” Export Lager Beer, Turbo King Dark Ale, Hi-Malt Non Alcoholic Malt Drink and Maltex Non Alcoholic Malt Drink. These brands have a wide distribution foot print and have a great consumer following across Nigeria. Heineken International became the majority shareholder in 2005. In 2000 Consolidated Breweries entered into a Technical Services Agreement with Heineken International and Heineken acquired minority shareholding. In 2005 Heineken International became the majority shareholder. In 2009 Consolidated Breweries Plc. acquired a majority shareholding in DIL/Maltex Nigeria Plc, makers of the famous Maltex brand.

We are currently operating at four different locations. Our Head Office is located at Iddo House, Iddo, Lagos, our breweries are located in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State and Awo-Omamma in Imo State and we have a factory in Agbara, Ogun State, and on August 1st, 2011, Consolidated Breweries plc acquired majority shareholding in Benue Brewery Limited following the formal approval given by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Furthermore we have many depots spread across the country.

1.3   STATEMENT OF PROBLEM 

The subject matter for this work was chosen in order that the great attention being accorded to the issue of efficiency vis – a -vis   productivity may be brought   to the fore for an enhanced understanding.

- The administration of consolidated Breweries PLC Awo-Nmanma requires a knowledge of the performance of their workers in order to be able to measure operational efficiency. Some common areas of problems noted during the research include:

- Non-challant attitude towards work employees are know to exhibit an “I don’t care” approach in the discharge of their duties. This is much so where they feel they have nothing in stake. There fore this affects their out-put and has a negative impact on the organization.

- The employees are faced with a lot of operational hazards and this affects mostly the junior workers and when they feel or they find no fulfillment or joy in the work, they tend to back out which increases labour turnover.

-The employees tend to compare their  job rotation packages with other organization and when they feel theirs is little, they tend to put up a lazy attitude towards work.

However, in any organization the availability of adequate effect of job rotation would increase the performance of employees, which would reduce labour turnover in the organization.    

1.4    OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY

The aims and objectives of this study included to ascertain the possible effect of effect of job rotation on the performance of employees In an organisation and critically examine it’s impact on employees performance. Reducing Monotony of the Job: The first and foremost objective of job rotation is to reduce the monotony and repetitiveness involved in a job. It allows employees to experience different type of jobs and motivates them to perform well at each stage of job replacement. Succession Planning: The concept of succession planning is ‘Who will replace whom’. Its main function of job rotation is to develop a pool of employees who can be placed at a senior level when someone gets retired or leaves the organization. The idea is to create an immediate replacement of a high-worth employee from within the organization.

Creating Right-Employee Job Fit: The success of an organization depends on the on-job productivity of its employees. If they’re rightly placed, they will be able to give the maximum output. In case, they are not assigned the job that they are good at, it creates a real big problem for both employee as well as organization. Therefore, fitting a right person in right vacancy is one of the main objectives of job rotation.  Exposing Workers to All Verticals of the Company: Another main function of job rotation process is to exposing workers to all verticals or operations of the organization in order to make them aware how company operates and how tasks are performed. It gives them a chance to understand the working of the organization and different issues that crop up while working.

Testing Employee Skills and Competencies: Testing and analyzing employee skills and competencies and then assigning them the work that they excel at is one of the major functions of job rotation process. It is done by moving them to different jobs and assignments and determining their proficiency and aptitude. Placing them what they are best at increases their on-job productivity. Developing a Wider Range of Work Experience: Employees, usually don’t want to change their area of operations. Once they start performing a specific task, they don’t want to shift from their comfort zone. Through job rotation, managers prepare them in advance to have a wider range of work experience and develop different skills and competencies. It is necessary for an overall development of an individual. Along with this, they understand the problems of various departments and try to adjust or adapt accordingly.

1.5   SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

It will assist the government to develop requisite policies for rewarding employees and to increase employees performance It will  integrate the Plight and interest of employees with organizational policy therefore ensuring that their welfare is concerned thereby making them more efficient and effective in their duties.

More over, the researcher had a limited time frame, combined with other academic activities to carry out the research. Finally, though it is quite interesting and necessary to have a comprehensive research on the topic: (the impact of reward system and compensation on employee performance).the researcher may not be able to treat the topic absolutely due to time constraint, finance constrain, stress on the part of the researcher and lack of adequate data.
