corporate strategy. An effective human resource strategy includes the way in which the
organization plans to develop its employees and provide them with suitable opportunities
and better working conditions so that their optional contribution is ensured. This implies
selecting the best available personnel, ensuring a fit between the employee and the job
and retaining, empowering and motivating employees to perform well in the direction of
corporate objectives.

FMCG Sector
What are Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG)?
Products which have a quick turnover, and relatively low cost are known as Fast
Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG). FMCG products are those that get replaced within a
year. Examples of FMCG generally include a wide range of frequently purchased
consumer products such as toiletries, soap, cosmetics, tooth cleaning products, shaving
products and detergents, as well as other non-durables such as glassware, bulbs, batteries,
paper products, and plastic goods. FMCG may also include pharmaceuticals, consumer
electronics, packaged food products, soft drinks, tissue paper, and chocolate bars.
A subset of FMCGs is Fast Moving Consumer Electronics which include
innovative electronic products such as mobile phones, MP3 players, digital cameras, GPS
Systems and Laptops. These are replaced more frequently than other electronic products.
White goods in FMCG refer to household electronic items such as Refrigerators,
TVs, Music Systems, etc.
In 2005, the Rs. 48,000-crore FMCG segment was one of the fast growing
industries in India. According to the AC Nielsen India study, the industry grew 5.3% in
value between 2004 and 2005

20 | P a g e

Indian FMCG Sector


The Indian FMCG sector is the fourth largest in the economy and has a market
size of US$13.1 billion. Well-established distribution networks, as well as intense
competition between the organised and unorganised segments are the characteristics of
this sector. FMCG in India has a strong and competitive MNC presence across the entire
value chain. It has been predicted that the FMCG market will reach to US$ 33.4 billion in
2015 from US $ billion 11.6 in 2003. The middle class and the rural segments of the
Indian population are the most promising market for FMCG, and give brand makers the
opportunity to convert them to branded products. Most of the product categories like
jams, toothpaste, skin care, shampoos, etc, in India, have low per capita consumption as
well as low penetration level, but the potential for growth is huge.
The Indian Economy is surging ahead by leaps and bounds, keeping pace with
rapid urbanization, increased literacy levels, and rising per capita income.
The big firms are growing bigger and small-time companies are catching up as
well. According to the study conducted by AC Nielsen, 62 of the top 100 brands are
owned by MNCs, and the balance by Indian companies. Fifteen companies own these 62
brands, and 27 of these are owned by Hindustan Lever. Pepsi is at number three followed
by Thums Up. Britannia takes the fifth place, followed by Colgate (6), Nirma (7), CocaCola (8) and Parle (9). These are figures the soft drink and cigarette companies have
always shied away from revealing. Personal care, cigarettes, and soft drinks are the three
biggest categories in FMCG. Between them, they account for 35 of the top 100 brand

HR Challenges in FMCG in India


Over the past three to four years, the global economy has gone through a
tremendous change and the looming the rest of a double dip and triple dip recession.
The environment that organisations are operating in today is on characterized by
volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity. The Indian economy has also not
remained isolated from the economic turmoil that the world is going many industries
have seen slowdown and organizational decision making is today market by cautiousness
changes in demographic composition of the population and thus the market would also
continue to impact the FMCG Industry.

Major HR challenges in FMCG sector in India are as follows:


1. Managing Knowledge Workers:
Essentially, here we are looking at different kind of people who does not obey the
principles of management for the traditional group. This boils down to higher
educational qualifications, taking up responsibilities at a lesser age and experience,
high bargaining power due to the knowledge and skills in hand, high demand for the
knowledge workers and techno suaveness.
2. Managing Technological Challenges:

22 | P a g e

In every arena organizations are getting more and more technologically oriented.
Though it is not in the main run after the initial debates preparing the work force to
accept technological changes is a major challenge.
3. Competence Of HR Mangers:
As it is more and more accepted that lot of success of organizations depend on the
human capital, this boils to recruiting the best, managing the best. Clearly HR
managers have a role in this process.
4. Developing Leadership:
It is quite interesting to note that there is less importance given to developing
leadership at the organizational level. Though leadership is discussed on basis of traits
and certain qualities, at an organizational level it is more based on knowledge.
5. Managing Change:
Business environment in India is volatile. There is boom in terms of opportunities
brought forward by globalization. However this is also leading to many interventions
in terms of restricting, turnaround, mergers, downsizing, etc. HR has a pivotal role to
play here.

The companies, listed above are the leaders in their respective sectors. The
personal care category has the largest number of brands, i.e., 21, inclusive of Lux,
Lifebuoy, Fair and Lovely, Vicks, and Ponds. There are 11 HLL brands in the 21,
aggregating Rs. 3,799 crore or 54% of the personal care category. Cigarettes account for
17% of the top 100 FMCG sales, and just below the personal care category. ITC alone
accounts for 60% volume market share and 70% by value of all filter cigarettes in India.
The foods category in FMCG is gaining popularity with a swing of launches by HLL,
ITC, Godrej, and others. This category has 18 major brands, aggregating Rs. 4,637 crore.
Nestle and Amul slug it out in the powders segment. The food category has also seen
innovations like softies in ice creams, chapattis by HLL, ready to eat rice by HLL and
pizzas by both GCMMF and Godrej Pillsbury. This category seems to have faster
development than the stagnating personal care category. Amul, India's largest foods
company, has a good presence in the food category with its ice-creams, curd, milk, butter,
cheese, and so on. Britannia also ranks in the top 100 FMCG brands, dominates the
biscuits category and has launched a series of products at various prices.
In the household care category (like mosquito repellents), Godrej and Reckitt are
two players. Goodnight from Godrej, is worth above Rs 217 crore, followed by Reckitt's
Morten at Rs 149 crore. In the shampoo category, HLL's Clinic and Sun silk make it to
the top 100, although P&G's Head and Shoulders and Pantene are also trying hard to be
positioned on top. Clinic is nearly double the size of Sun silk.

26 | P a g e

Dabur is among the top five FMCG companies in India and is a herbal specialist.
With a turnover of Rs. 19 billion (approx. US$ 420 million) in 2005-2006, Dabur has
brands like Dabur Amla, Dabur Chyawanprash, Vatika, Hajmola and Real. Asian Paints is
enjoying a formidable presence in the Indian sub-continent, Southeast Asia, Far East,
Middle East, South Pacific, Caribbean, Africa and Europe. Asian Paints is India's largest
paint company, with a turnover of Rs.22.6 billion (around USD 513 million). Forbes
Global magazine, USA, ranked Asian Paints among the 200 Best Small Companies in the
World
Cadbury India is the market leader in the chocolate confectionery market with a
70% market share and is ranked number two in the total food drinks market. Its popular
brands include Cadbury's Dairy Milk, 5 Star, Eclairs, and Gems. The Rs.15.6 billion
(USD 380 Million) Marico is a leading Indian group in consumer products and services
in the Global Beauty and Wellness space.

Outlook
There is a huge growth potential for all the FMCG companies as the per capita
consumption of almost all products in the country is amongst the lowest in the world.
Again the demand or prospect could be increased further if these companies can change
the consumer's mindset and offer new generation products. Earlier, Indian consumers
were using non-branded apparel, but today, clothes of different brands are available and
the same consumers are willing to pay more for branded quality clothes. It's the quality,
promotion and innovation of products, which can drive many sectors.

INTRODUCTION TO UNILEVER

Unilever was formed through the 1930 merger of Dutch margarine company
Margarine Unie and British soap maker Lever Brothers. The combination of the two
companies made good sense--they both used the same raw materials, had similar
distribution channels and participated in large-scale marketing of household products. In
the beginning, Unilever had operations in 40 countries, but soon expanded its reach. The
1950s saw the company focusing on growth by investing in research and new
technologies, while it began expanding through acquisitions in the 1970s and 1980s.
These days, Unilever has diversified its product offerings far beyond margarine
and soap. The company controls a supermarket's worth of brands: Hellmann's
mayonnaise, Flora and Becel spreads and yogurt drinks, Breyers ice creamBoursin
cheese, Dove soap, shampoo, body wash, deodorant and more, Pond's face products,
Wish-Bone salad dressings, Knorr soup mixes, seasonings and sauces, Bertolli sauces,
olive oil and frozen prepared meals, Ragu sauces, Q-tips, Lipton teas, soups and
seasonings (Lipton's Yellow Label is one of the most popular teas in the world) and-phew!--Karo syrup.
