These three multinationals form the core of Samsung Group and reflect its name - the meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". Samsung has been the world's most popular consumer electronics brand since 2005 and is the best known South Korean brand in the world.[8] Samsung Group accounts for more than 20% of South Korea's total exports[9] and is the leader in many domestic industries, such as the financial, chemical, retail and entertainment industries. The company's strong influence in South Korea is visible throughout the nation, which has been referred to as the "Republic of Samsung".

Samsung's flagship unit is Samsung Electronics, which is the world's top maker of DRAMs and other memory chips, as well as a global heavyweight in all sorts of electronic gear, including LCD panels, DVD players, and wireless phones.

The South West Asia Headquarters, under the leadership of Mr. J S Shin, President & CEO, looks after the Samsung business in Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Maldives and Bhutan besides India. Samsung India which commenced its operations in India in December 1995 enjoys a sales turnover of over US$ 1Bn in just a decade of operations in the country.

Samsung is the world's leading consumer electronics brand and one of the top twenty global brands. View of the Samsung logo inside the Time Warner Center in New York City. Currently helmed by Lee Soo-bin, CEO of Samsung Life Insurance, it has been run by generations of one of the world's wealthiest families, formerly by chairman Lee Kun-Hee, the third son of the founder, Lee Byung-Chull. Samsung Group also owns the Sungkyunkwan University, a major private university in South Korea, with many of its graduates being employed by Samsung Group affiliates. Many major South Korean corporations such as CJ Corporation, Hansol Group, Shinsegae Group and Joong-Ang Ilbo daily newspaper were previously part of the Samsung Group. Though they are still controlled by ex-Chairman Lee Kun-hee's relatives, they are no longer officially Samsung affiliates. Some leading companies in South Korea, notably MP3 player manufacturer iriver and search engine portal Naver, were established by ex-Samsung employees. A large number of South Korean firms, particularly those in the electronics industry, are dependent on Samsung for the supply of vital components or raw materials such as semiconductor chips or LCD panels. This has led to continued allegations of price fixing and monopolistic practices. Samsung Group accounts for more than 20% of South Korea's total exports[9] and in many domestic industries, Samsung Group is the sole monopoly dominating a single market, its revenue as large as some countries' total GDP. In 2006, Samsung Group would have been the 34th largest economy in the world if ranked, larger than that of Argentina.[11] The company owns or has taken over so many mid to small sized businesses that it is often called a 'colonial empire' or 'hungry dinosaur'. The company has a powerful influence on the country's economic development, politics, media and culture, being a major driving force behind the Miracle on the Han River; many businesses today use its international success as a role model.

Chapter : 2 Introduction of organisational culture

Organisational culture

The internal working of every organisation has certain commonly perceived psychological characteristics or traits which are collectively called its culture or mileu. These traits generally vary from organisation to organisation to organistion are relatively stable over the time and influence the behaviour of people in the organisation. Thus every organisation has its own unique culture.not only thiseven different departments of same organisation may have different cultures depending upon the perception of members of the departments. Various personal characteristics such as values,needs,attidutes,exceptions etc. determine the manner in which members are likely to perceive the various aspects of internal working.

The culture of your organisation is the state of its health.

A healthy oraganistion is one which obviuios effort made to get people with different backgrounds,skills,and abilities to work together towards the goal of the oragnisation. An effective,culturally diverse organisation is one whose culture is inclusive of all of the varying groups and constituencies it intends to serve. The organisations values,vision,mission,policies,procedures and norms constitute a culture thjat is manifested in multiple perspectives and adaptability to varying values,beliefs and communication styles. For many companies the proper implementation of an organisational culture survey can prpvide valueable information that can be usedto guide and increase its success. However, Companies that choose to implement a survey must be prepared to respond to both positive and negative results, and work with employees to make improvements in the wprk environment. Failure to respond to employee feedback can ultimately increase the number of workorce problems experienced within organisation.

Defining Culture
Perception about an organisational goals and decisions that a manager should take to achieve these goals come not only from the formal control system but also through the informal organisation. Both informal and formal structure combine to create what ia called organisational culture. It influences morale and the attitude of the individuals towards his work and his environment. Organisation culture has been a popular concept in the theory and research for sometime and has received a great deal of attention in the past 25yrs. Organisational culture is a system of shared beliefs and attitudes that develop within an organisation and guides the behaviour of its member. It is also known as corporate culture:, and has a major impact on the performance of organisation and specially the quality of work life experienced by the employees. Organisational culture consists of the norms, values and unwritten rules of conduct ofan organisation as well as management styles, priorities, beliefs and inter personal behaviours that prevail.

Culture implies a pattern of beliefs and behaviour. It is cultivated behaviour in the sense that it is learnt from the members of the society.

Organisational culture is the totality of beliefs, customs, traditions, and values shared by the members of the organisation. The culture characteristics of an organisation are relatively enduring over time and relatively static in their prosperity to change .

Together they create a climate that influences how well people communicate ,plan and make decisions.

Strong values let people know that is expected of them. There are clear guidelines as to how employees are to behave generally within the organisation an their expected code of conduct outside the organisation.

Nature of organisational culture

The features of organisational culture are as under :

Like an individual every organisation has its own personality. The personality of the organisation defines the internal environment of an organisation. It differentiates an organisation from the others. It relatively enduring or stable over the time. It is perceived by the members and outsiders. It exercises a significant influence on the attitudes, behaviour and performance of organisational members.


observed that atleast six popular meanings could be ascribed to

organisational culture. These are : The observed behavioural regularities in the interactions, language and rituals of the organisation members. The norms which evolve over a period of time in working groups. The philosophy which guides the decisions and policies of an orgaisation. The rules of the game one must learn in order to be accepted in the organisation. The dominant values which are exposed by the organisation(or by the dominant members of the organisation). The climate that pervades and gets conveyed in the day to day functioning of the organisation.

Components of organisational culture

It can be difficult to identify the large number of organisational culture areas that exists. Recent research has identified over 460 different types of work environment

characteristics that have been measured. Many of these characteristics can be classified into the following major areas : jobs, roles, leader, organisation and workgroup. In many companies there are particular areas where employee feedback would be useful. The basis of organisational culture lies in the following :

Individual autonomy : i.e the degree to which employees are free to

manage themselves or not accountable to others.

Position structure : i.e the extend of formalisation, centralisation and

direct supervision.

Reward orientation : i.e the extend to which rewards are related to

performance and the required system of behaviour in the organisation.

Consideration : i.e the extend to which the people in the organisation

offer social emotional support to each other and work as a team. Whether the supervision is production oriented or people oriented?

Conflict : i.e the extend of differences present between individuals and

departments and the way which they are resolved.

Risk taking : i.e the degree o freedom to experiment with new ideas, take
risks and commit honest mistakes without fear of punishment.

Communication patterns : the degree to which organisational

communications are restricted to the formal hierarchy of authority.

Outcome orientation : the degree to which management focuses on

results or outcomes rather than on the techniques and processes used to achieve these outcomes.

Types of organisational culture Authoritarian and participative cultures : In this type of culture. There is
centralisation of power with the leader and obedience to orders and discipline are stressed. Any disobedience is punished severely to state an example to others. The basic assumption is that the leader knows what is good for an organisation and he always acts in its interests. Participative culture tends to emerge where most of the organisational members see themselves is equals and take part in decision making.

Mechanistic and organic cultures : The mechanistic organisational culture

exhibits the values of bureaucracy and so is called bureaucratic culture. Organisational jobs are created around narrow specialisations and people think of their careers mainly within these specialisations, authority is thought of as flowing down from the top of the organisation to the lower levels and communication flows through prescribed channels. There is a great deal of departmental loyalty And inter-departmental animosity. This sort of culture resists change and innovation. In Organic culture formal hierarchy of authority, departmental boundaries, formal boundaries, formal rules and regulations, and prescribed channels of communications are forward upon. There is a great deal of emphasis on task accomplishment, team work and free flow of communication-formal and informal. There is a widespread understanding within staffing of the problems, threats and opportunities the organisation is facing and there is willingness and preparedness to take appropriate roles to solve the problems. The culture stresses flexibility, consultation, change and innovation.

Sub Culture and Dominant Culture : Each department of an organisation

may have its own culture representing a sub culture of the system. An organisation culture emerges where there is an integration of all the departments into a unified whole. Within any given unit, the tendency for integration and consistency will be assumed to be present but it is perfectly possible for coexisting units of a larger system to have cultures that are independent and even in conflict with each other.

Role and significance of organisational culture

Each organisation is recognised by its culture. Whenever people name an organisation, the culture attached to the organisation is immediately recalled. An organisation is distinctively different from other organisations by virtue of its cultural values, beliefs and norms. Besides this the following functions are performed by the organisational culture. Organisational culture creates the boundary beyond which no employees are permitted to go. They automatically observe the organisational standards and norms of behaviour.

An organisation is well recognised by its culture, the culture of an organisation provides its stability. People prefer to continue with the organisation. Employees, customers, financers and other related persons prefer to remain with the organisation.

The social recognition of the organisational culture makes the organisation grow and develop in all dimensions.

Organisational culture acts as a motivator that guides and controls the employees. Satisfied employees get more and enthusiasm for performing the respective jobs.

The attitude and behaviour of the employees are directed towards the achievement of goals through a sound culture. Disciplined employees make other employees disciplined and well behaved.

Advantages of organisational culture

The advantages of a sound organisational culture are ultimately reflected in employees performance and satisfaction. The image of an organisation is increased and people are satisfied with the performance of the oragnisation. Peoples satisfaction lies in the employees smile. It is instrumental to increased production and satisfaction. A strong culture ensures better performances. Culture enhances organisational commitment and increases the consistency of employee behaviour. It reduces ambiguity and tells implicitly what to do and how to do. There is a great deal of departmental loyalty and inter departmental animosity. This sort of culture resits change and innovation. In the organic culture, formal hierarchy of authority, departmental boundaries, formal rules and regulations, and prescribed channels of communications are frowned upon. There is great deal of emphasis on task accomplishment team work, free flow of communication- formal and informal. There is a widespread understanding within staff of the problems, threats, and opportunities the organisation is facing and there is willingness and preparedness to take appropriate roles to solve the problems. The culture stresses flexibility, consultation, change and innovation.

Creation of culture
Organisation culture provides the members with a sense of organisational identity and generates a commitment to beliefs and values that are larger than themselves.

Creation of organisational culture is a very lengthy and complicated process. According to a noted social psychologist, Edgar Schein, evolution of common assumptions of the organisational members is the starting stage of creation of the organisational culture. These assumptions act as the basis of creation of shared values. Both assumptions and values are non observable elements of the culture. At the last stage, observable artefacts of the culture are developed . thus according to Edgar Schein culture exists on three levels: on the surface we find artefacts, underneath artefacts lie values and behavioural norms and at the deepest levels lies a core of beliefs and assumptions. Schein model of culture is shown in the figure and the three levels it depicts are described below :


Beliefs and values


A) Observable Artifacts : These are symbols of culture in the physical and social work environment and are most visible and accessible. Among the artefacts of culture are the following :

Organisational heroes : As a reflection of the organisations philosophy

, this dimension concerns the behaviour of top executives and their leadership styles. These leaders become the role models and a personification of an organisations culture. They represent what the company stands for and reinforce the values of the culture.

Stories : Stories and myths about organisations heroes are powerful tools
to reinforce cultural values throughout the organisation and specially in orienting new employees, these stories and myths are often filtered through a cultural network and remind employees as to why we do things in a certain way.

Cultural symbols : Symbols communicate organisational culture by

unspoken messages. Certain code or dress or companys logo can reflect its values and orientations. Some of the material artefacts created by an organisation might also speak of its cultural orientation.

B) Shared Values : values are the second and the deeper level of culture and are reflected in the way individuals actually behave. Values reflect an organisations underlying beliefs as to what should be and what should not be. Values are those principles and qualities that shape our thinking and behaviour. Values are emotionally charged priorities. The are learned during the process of socialisation, through family environment of upbringing and through religious influences. Values are of two types : Instrumental and Terminal values. Instrumental values define such enduring beliefs that certain behaviours are appropriate at all times irrespective of the objectives or outcomes. On the other hand, Terminal values are beliefs that certain more tangible objectives are worth striving for and the objectives become more important the appropriateness of the behaviour in achieving such objectives.

C) Assumptions : Assumptions are the deepest and most fundamental level of an organisations culture. These are deeply held beliefs which are not objectively observable but manifest themselves in the behaviour of people so strongly that any violation of such beliefs would be unthinkable. These common assumptions, though expressed at the organisational level, can be traced to larger social and cultural values held by a particular society or nation.

Once a culture has been created there are practices within the organisation that help keep it alive. Three such practices are selection process actions of top management, and socialisation. These are discussed as under :

Selection of Employees : The main purpose of selection is to procure

right type of people for right jobs. When, for a given job, two or more candidates, with identical skills and abilities, are available, final selection is influenced by how well the candidate fits into the organisation. Its is by selecting the candidate who can culturally match the organistion culture.

Action of top management : Besides managerial vision and

philosophy, the action of top executives also have a major impact on the organisational culture. Through what they say and how they behave, senior executive establish norms that filter down through the organisation as to whether risk taking is desirable.

Differences and similarities between Culture and Climate

Robert Owens (1987)contends that in education in the term has enjoyed wide usage in the past, but the more inclusive term organisational culture is rapidly coming into the use in the literature. One therefore needs to ask whether these terms are similar or whether they mean different.

Culture : The literature is replete with definitions of culture, however there is a

high degree of agreement among writers and how it relates to and differs from climate. Schein (1985) defines culture as the solution to external and internal problems that has worked consistently for a group and that is therefore taught to

new members as the correct way to perceive, think about and feel in relation to these problems. Dean and Kennedy defines culture consisting of patterns of thought, behaviour and artifacts that symbolises and give meaning of the workplace. Similarly Killman Etal define culture as the shared

philosphies,ideologies,values,assumptions,beliefs,expectations,attitudes and norms that knit a community together. All however agree that these interrelated psychological qualities indicate he groups agree, implicitly or explicitly, on how problems are solved and decisions made. In everyday usage it is typically described as the way things are done around here or what people believe does or does not work in their workplace. Schein contends that these solutions eventually come to be assumption about the nature of reality, time, truth, space, human nature, human activity and human relationships. They eventually become taken for granted and drop out of awareness. Because of the human need for consistency and order, the assumption tend to form a pattern that is implicit, taken for granted and unconscious. It is only through a process of inquiry that they are brought to the surface. Norms may be negative or positive. In our attempts to improve schools we often ask to asses and analyse their culture. In particular we focus on the norms that operate within the schools. We have found this to be extremely useful activity to help the school staff understand its basis of operation. In many cases the staff are quick to suggest mechanism for achieving higher performance and improved morale. At somewhat deeper levels lie in the hidden assumptions, according to schein. These are the fundamental beliefs behind all decisions and actions. Examples of assumptions might be that all kids are lazy and evil, what worked in the schools in the past is good enough for today, personal gain more important than gain and I am here basically to teach.

At the deepest level of culture, according to schein is the collective manifestation of human nature the collection of human dynamics, wants, motives and desires that make a group of people unique. Because most organisations are collectively of individuals with unique wants and desires, understanding and changing culture can be difficult. Deal contends that in order to understand the culture needs in a school one has to understand the symbolism that exists. These include the rituals, myths, traditions, rites and informal network of players and language. It is through these mechanism that human meanings and values are transmitted.

Owens for example, contends that the bell schedule is one of the many powerful cultural symbols that help to create climate in our schools. Climate : in that climate has been previously defined, only a brief summary is necessary. Essentially climate is the perception that individuals have of various aspects of the internal environment of the school and that influences their behaviour. Climate is also closely associated with the notion of satisfaction. The determination of climate characteristics is usually elicited through the perception of respondents to a questionnaire. Organisational climate which is integral to and yet only a part of an organisations culture is easier to change than its culture. Organisational climate is found in the private language of the organisation, such as the conversations about work among staff during coffee breaks. Climate is manifested in the observable routines and rewards of the organisation. The routines are the events and practice of an organisation. The rewards pertain to what behaviours get acknowledged, supported and rewarded. The major similarities between the two concept pointed out by Rousseau(1988) based on the studies by different authors like James and sells, Joyee and Solcum, Louis and many more.

Both climate and culture concepts emphasise consistency and consensus among the members of the unit.

Both the concepts are composed of beliefs or individual cognitions. Both the concepts are historical, enduring and resistant to change in nature.

Both the concepts show the tendency towards differentiation with members in different units of a larger organisation leading to different sets of beliefs.

Glick have stated that culture and climate have entirely different disciplinary back of ground of origin and therefore are different from each other. The major differences pointed out by Ashforth, Glick and Rousseau are : Climate concept originated from the interactioinst psychology whereas the culture concept originated from the symbolic interactions school of sociology. Climate is descriptive whereas the culture is normative. Climate exists in very organisation whereas many organisation may not have strong norms or culture. All the members of the organisation experience climate whereas all of them may not be a part of the culture. Climate represents individual perceptions which is understood by shifting the analysis upwards to the level of the collectivises whereas culture represents a social unit or group phenomenon which is understood by shifting the analysis downwards to individuals.

Supportive dimensions of the diversity culture.

A supportive diversity climate was defined as the routines and rewards of the organisation that are inclusive of cultural groups other than the dominant cultural group in the organisation both as staff and clients. The dimensions were:

Commitment to serve others : Facultys perceptions that serving a culturally

diverse population fits within the mission of the organisation. They found it desirable to serve such a population.

Awareness of the need for new outreach approaches : Facultys

perceptions that new approaches to reaching a diverse clientele were necessary for success. They perceived that there needs to be more than one way of thinking. In order to be successful in hiring and retaining diverse staff and in developing educational programs for diverse audience.

Awareness of the need to build trust : Facultys perceptions that

relationship groups. and trust building, which take creditability and mutual understanding, before attempting to deliver educational programs to diverse

Openness to learn : Facultys expressed interest and willingness to be involved

in the process of on going learning.

Creative work : Facultys perceptions that they have a lot of freedom and
flexibility to be creative in their work with people.

Awareness that diversity adds richness : Facultys perceptions that

diversity adds new learning, new perspectives and a richer end product both for the self, the interaction of the self with other and the organisation.

Awareness of the need for diverse staff : Facultys perceptions that the
organisation needs staff to e from and understood the cultures to be served.


At Samsung electronics, work culture is mixture of France and India culture unlike Daewoo and Samsung. There are fifty percent Indians and fifty percent of France employed in the company. The Indians counters is the softer counterpart the harder side. Work at Samsung electronics is target oriented. There are weekly presentations, which determine how each and every employee of the company is performing. However if an employee is not meeting his/her targets, he/she is not fried but just given warning, this is the softer side of the companys work culture i.e., not to fire any body until and unless it is an extreme case. However south France culture demands that if a person dose not his/her target it is immediaty thrown out. There is a system of one innovation per man every year i.e.; one person initiating some change in organization to ward better performance for The vice president (sales and marking)and the VP(manufacturing)and VP(finance)are Frances. The signifies the idealization of the marketing and sales function considering the local market and VP(manufacturing)begin a Frances that Samsung culture is

dominating the manufacture facilities. All this was selective the manpower of its organization Samsung believes in keeping the manpower at par with the company turnover

FOR EXAMPLE No of employees Turnover Productive : : : 500 2000 crore 1.5 crore per person

If the turnover of the company is increased to 1500 core it wont be at the cost of the increase in manpower ,the company would wish to increase the productivity per person rather than increasing the employee strength.

FOR EXAMPLE Project turnover Employee strength Productivity : : : Rs.1500 crore 800(same) 1.8 crore per person

If the turnover of the company is increased to 1500 crore it wont be at the cost of the increase in manpower, the company would wish to increase the productivity per rather than increasing the employee strength.


To promote and support HR development that can serve as the foundation for Samsung effort to become the best Global Company foe the 21st century Samsung Electronics is operating various employee advancement programme; Conducting specialized training program for certain employee and spending them to France for training at Samsung pyeongtack learning centre that offers higher level of globalization and management training courses. An on-line seminar, sharing of best practise and various business management skills programmes are avaible via an on line education system called The Learning Net.Setting clear and specific targets for work and self-development consulting the immediates superior for guidance and support for self-improvement.Conducting evaluation meetings giving regular promotion and providing differentiated reward and benefits to each of its employees.







MAINTAINING ITS ORGANISATIONAL CULTURE : Employee Involvement : By administering an organisational suvey employees are given an opportunity to be involved in the company aia different level that I typically defined in their job descriptions. Research has shown that employees who are more invovlved in the company may also be more satisfied with their job,stay wih the company longer and perform better.

Positive work outcomes : in the last 30 years a significant amount of

evidence has been accumulated documenting the importance of the work environment in relation to organisational performance. In general, research has shown that facors in the work environment are related to outcomes such as employees motivation, job satisfaction, intentions to quit, job performance and even organisational productivity. In addition the emerging area of research has indicated that culture can influence customer perceptions of the qualiy of goods or services delivered by a company.

Communication forum : in many companies it can be very difficult to

communicate with the majority of employees. Recent trends such as organisational restructuring and merging of companies has resulted in flat organisational responsibility charts, which increases the number of employess for which each manager is accountable. As a result some mangersonly have limited amounts of time to talk to others about their routine work.

Industry comparisons : organisations often look ot other companies

when determinig organisational policies and procedures.It is common for companies to explore the market or conduct benchmark studies when considering issues such as new product development,salary or employee benefit policies,markting strategies,etc.

Proactive Management: Adminstering organization climate surveys

allows mangers to be much more proactive in managing their employees and work environments.When used on a scheduled basis,organizational surveys can help pinpoint problem areas within the work environment

before they grow into a crisis needing immediate attention.Problems that require a reactive posture interrupt the normal workflow,and typically cause delays in providing products or services to customers.


THE IMPACT OF ORGANIZATION COORDINATION AND CULTURE ON MARKETING EXECTIVES SATISATION WITH INFORMATION SYSTEM SERVIES AUTHOR: journal of the Association of Information System,Volume 4 Article 4 ,In this article the author said that the climate,general attitudes ni na organization in which the developers and users operate,can serve as an important morderator.Analysis of a sample of marketing exectives indicates that the climate is an important morderator and may impact the ability of structural features to improve perceived performance.Mangers must considers the climate sa an important feature.









AUTHOR : Ching-chaing,Human Resource Management. In the article the organizational climate was used as the independent variables. The purpose of the research was mainly to find out the relationship and the difference among organizational climate, organizational commitment, and organizational citizenship behaviour. Furthermore, using the individual variable as the interfered variable to investigate the effect of interference to organization climate, organization commitment, and organizational citizenship behaviour. And

they discovered that the different individual citizenship behaviour come out a partly remarkable discrepancy and Organizational climate and organizational commitment were positively significant to organizational citizenship behaviour.


WEAKNESS OF COMPANY In case management of company will not function properly then their execution of complacent with what they accomplished so far ,then they could easily tumble it the bottom in a flash. In this sense, their struggle is with their selves. Following are the weakness : No proactively coming out of the newer models. Lack of product differentiation. Focus on mass market rather than niche market. Not very user friendly designs.

STRENGTH OF COMPANY The 21st century is a time for harmony and interdependent; no one can develop alone. Samsungs strength comes form their peoples capabilities, passion and dedication to a single vision ,In addition the intense companies and best product survive. Samsung is now one of the worlds distinguished brands.However,we are still working hard to reach even higher goals around the world,proceeding with the sense of urgency.In order to succeed,we must create the necessary management

system and develop our own technologies.The way to the top is clear :the power of Samsung is in its people and technology. They are the basis of Samsungs legendary achievement and they will continue to provide the foundation for our success in the future.In Todays competitive world it is increasingly difficult for the companys to maintain an elevated status within their respective industries.Today the companies are being challenged to develop and maintain a competitive workforce.

With unemployment rates at an all time low, some employees are taking advantage of the highly favourable and lucrative job market by seeking new position that allow them to maximize their earning potential and employer-provided benefits. Other employees are experiencing rapid changes in technology. As a result, their day to-day activities. Following are the strengths : New product concept to rollout in five months. Catching the pulse of the consumer offering good designs and understanding emotions. Heavy investments in technology, product designs and human resources. Focus on innovative products for high end market.

To unseat Sony as the most valuable electronics brand and most important shaper of trends. To dominate the digital home competing with Sony and Philips. Capitalize on reputation, image. Distinguish its product from its competitors.

Offer product variations. Tie up with service providers. Demand for various products driven by the Samsung providers or carriers.

Cheaper production of rivals. Ability of others to mimic and copy design (LG). Trades at a discount to its global rivals due to Koreas history of Corporate scandals (Even though its considered one of the most transparent emerging companies)- foreigners will always suspect numbers. LGs dominance in U.S . Whirlpool popularity in European market. Aggressive competitors include Videocon, Onida, Whirlpool and many.

CHAPTER : 3 Conclusion


In my research I tried to study the organizational culture of SAMSUNG (north delhi) branch. SAMSUNG is adjudged as the no.1 company in consumer durables. To achieve this status the company needs to have excellent workshop i.e.the knowledge capital,which can be done by maintaining the good organization culture in which the people can work to the best of their efficiencies. Maximum people in the company agreed that to a large extend the company considers their values; which is indeed a very strong point. Every employee is very clear about what is he expected in the

organization.Thus,very high role clarity.And to only some extend only people in the organization feels that company is utilizing their knowledge and expertise.But an employee feels that their job is making an important contribution to the achievement of the organizations objective. And have sense of loyalty in them.But they feel that their job is not providing them enough exposure to various area and new development in their field.

Inspite of this, the employees feel good being associated with the company.This is revealed by the Reponses received to the question 7.The following were the reponses that were given by the member of the organsization : Highly aggressive,has really enchased on their Brand equity over the years. Never say no approach, the image and the goodwill

Marketing is excellent of the campany,working hours,more space given to the employees Good aggressive,customercaring, paying structure,Dynamics,Empowerment,Transparency,Focus,Fast.innovative

HR policies,system,controls,a flexible organization open to new learning, decision making environment, discipline, accountability.

On the other side of the coin the employees feels that to same extend they are rewarded for the excellent in performance. This shows reward and recognition is fairly rewarded in the organization. The major point to which majority of the employees agreed was of decisionmaking. They feel that this organization style and culture has been effective in ensuring discipline and accountability in staff members. But there were some areas in which few respondent felt that it needed change and was obstructing their functioning.The main areas were: Shortage of the space and resources as compared to the employees in this branch. Some working procedures needs improvement for fast working,Infrastructure facilities at the branch

More focus on employees personal life More proactive approach Infrastructure at the branch

And moreover, they personally feel that their job contributes to their personal growth and development. And the fairly have a sustainable working condition to which maximum sample agrees and they are satisfied with it and do not want to initiate any change.

CHAPTER : 4 Recommendations and Bibliography

I suggest that company can make some effort to make the infrastructure more congenial at the work place. He will keep the employees at ease ,and thus, allow them to given the best to the organization.

It is suggested that form time to time the company should come up with the various surveys to check the jobs satisfaction level in the organization. Thus in the case there is some problem the organization can take corrective measures before it becomes the threat to the company.
