CORRUPTION AT THE TOP DOES NOT REMAIN AT THE TOP ONLY. HUGE PILE OF CORRUPT FORCE LIES BENEATH

Refer to the link below- CORRUPTION IS A CORPORATE PHENOMENA AND EVEN CONSIDERABLY THE LEADING ONES FACE THE FLACK. SCHNEIDER ELECTRIC FACED ONE SUCH EMBARRASSING ONE AS GIVEN BELOW. IS CORRUPTION A REFLECTION OF ORGANISATION CULTURE?

CORRUPTION AS I ALWAYS BELIEVE IS A GROUP ACTIVITY AND TAKES BIRTH WHEN THE ORGANISATION IS CONSIDERED VALUE-ERODED, DUMB, INEFFECTIVE AND TOOTH-LESS.

IF TOP IS CORRUPT, CAN THE PEOPLE BELOW REMAIN HONEST AND CREDIBLE?  UNFORTUNATE FACT IS THAT ORGANISATIONS ARE NOW RESORTING TO HIRING THE VPs AND CHIEF ETHICS OFFICERS TO ENSURE ETHICS PREVAIL. THIS MAKES IT VERY CLEAR THAT MANAGEMENT OR BOARD IS EITHER TOO CONCERNED ABOUT ETHICS ERODING AT THE TOP OR JUST CREATING A FACADE AND EYE WASH FOR INVESTORS AND REGULATORS?

INTERESTING STORY BELOW---

French engineering group Schneider Electric reported a 3.0-percent rise in net profit for last year to 1.84 billion euros ($2.4 billion) on Thursday owing to price rises and cost-cutting which compensated for a fall of sales volumes.

The company also revealed that the profit line had been reduced by 27 million euros, equivalent to about 1.4 percent of total profits, owing to fraud by a senior member of staff who had now left the company.

The fraud involved the creation of “fake” documents which led to an under-estimation of the provisions the company made for year-end discounts to big customers.

Finance director Emmanuel Babeau told a telephone conference that despite internal controls “that are extremely heavy”, when someone in an important position was not trustworthy “we have an issue.”

The company was “doubling the level of security and putting everything in place for that not to happen again.”

What is The Hay Group Total Reward Framework

The Hay Group Total Reward Framework
A new way of understanding reward
Reward strategies must be anchored in business reality to be effective. Which means linking it to your business strategy – and the needs of your employees as well as your organisation. Our Total Reward Framework helps you optimise reward, no matter how challenging the conditions.



The issue
Remuneration tends to be one of the worst-managed parts of an organisation’s cost structure. But with 10-70 per cent of total costs wrapped up in it, reward cannot be ignored, particularly in a downturn. To be effective, reward programmes must reflect the needs of the business, now and in the future. Only if they are tied closely to company strategy, business performance and the needs of employees can reward programmes deliver the ROI that is needed in tough times[MK1] .
The Hay Group Total Reward Framework takes strategy as a starting point – and it focuses on total reward: every financial measure together with non-financial rewards …

Aon Hewitt Total Rewards Framework

Aon Hewitt Total Rewards Framework The Aon Hewitt model and approach believes in considering Total Rewards as a business tool and very much linked to overall business objectives!
Reward as understood is a very complex mechanism and some efforts of correcting the base pay and titling in a hurry by many MNCs in India have done a bigger crime by trying to correct it by market adjustments without looking at the talent map, complexity and expectations out of role and mapping it against the benchmark. Titles in India are a big misnomer and hardly any survey on compensation ever probes and captures and calibrates the tangible outcome based bench marking!
