Area of research (Lahore)
The retail industry – Hyperstar Pakistan has a very dynamic and vibrant business environment in Pakistan therefore to stay abreast of the challenges organizations in the retail sector are required to have a sound strategic management approach towards their business. One of these strategic issues is perhaps the proper development of the Human Resources channel. The human resource department ensures the sound functioning of the business by taking human perspective into account. Motivation is one such crucial perspective since it is directly related to performance variables such as employee performance, employee productivity, employee efficiency, job satisfaction etc. According to Wikipedia motivation is the activation or generalization of goal-oriented behavior.
Therefore to address this issue within the retail industry I have selected Hyperstar Pakistan Organization and divided their management into three levels to investigate the motivation level between the all levels of employees. Which are Strategic management group, operational management group and tactical management group. The organization selected does not have proper motivational programs primarily due to the lack of skilled human resource personnel.
The national retail companies in Pakistan are not only faced with intense competition from multinational corporations but also from the increasing number of domestic retail corporations. Thus for the organizations to sustain economies of scale, cost optimizations and competitive advantages within the industry the development and motivation of human personnel is as essential as survival itself. The more motivated the work force is the more optimum are the results and less is the loss of financial capital. The significance of this project is that it aims at the process of eradication of hidden costs with do not appear in the financial statements, by improving the performance and productivity of the human capital by employing Motivation as its tool.
