Following that, the ESSO undertakings were purchased on 15th September 1976 and control was vested in SOCL.

On the other hand the department head can also send a request for training if he observes that there is a need of training for his employees. PSO have in-house trainers who help in building soft and hard skills of an employee. They have their own auditorium where they conduct these training sessions. The medium of these training sessions can be lectures, workshops, seminars, conferences, an interactive game which

 

needs full involvement of an employee, like they once organized a leadership training game and activity program at Golf Club for their employees. Some of the topics of their training session include time management, technical training, leadership training, building up communications skills etc. PSO believes in improving their  employees to the level that they can excel in every field they are into.

STRATEGIES STRA TEGIES THEY HAVE: HAVE:  Recruitment Policy:  Recruitment Policy: PSO hire individuals on merit basis and that is why their hiring process is quite transparent. When there is a need of hiring they give an ad in a newspaper to select the candidate according to their requirement who are going to appear in the test and if they are selected they go through the process of interviews which varies for different level of employment.

PSO monitors that these strategies are being fully applied by the HR department strictly. CSR:: CSR PSO believe believe that Corpor Corporate ate Social Social Respo Responsi nsibili bility ty (CSR) (CSR) is about about making making a differen difference. ce. A difference that is able to permeate the very fabric of society uplifting the economic well being of our country and our people. PSO has been doing CSR activities since 8, 9 years but 2 years  back they’ve they’ve set set up a proper committee committee consisting consisting of 4 to 5 members. members. These committee members receive a request for such activities and then they analyze and evaluate the needs to get it approved by the board so that they can operate this function in a  proper way. PSO every year plans a budget budget for f or CSR activities. They issue a CSR Bulletin on quarterly basis which demonstrates that what PSO has done so far as being socially responsible.

According to PSO’s Deputy General Manager (HR) Sumera Manzar leadership is not just leading, but involving your sub-ordinates in such a way that they become the part of the system. A manager or team leader just can’t tell their team mates that what to do, they have to set directions and combine the energies of the team members to hit a common goal proficiently. The most important attribute to be a successful leader is to have vision. A vision to take initiatives and set directions to achieve the company’s mission efficiently. PSO considers that vision is the most important thing to be a leader even if you are a technical person or have good academic background. They have an Employee Employee Leadership Team, which meets on regular basis to review succession succession  plans and and organization organizational al development development.. Leadership skills are enhanced by PSO’s trainer by placing challenging assignments, empowerment and promoting employees within the organization, wherever possible, to fill higher vacancies. They do career planning and development for the employees who have been continuously performing at their best. The young and experienced professionals who can bring a significant change and be a successful leader in the future are given assignments that are of a great deal of responsibility and autonomy.

Grievance System: This is an online system for their employees to log their complaints regarding to anything they are not comfortable with. These complaints are tackled with complete confidentiality.

3. SUCCESS STORIES:

We have asked 2, 3 of PSO’s management employees about the success stories that they’ve witnessed, and the only answer we got from them was their transformational process. This  processs started from 1999 and ended in 2007 with totally a new PSO and a new work   proces environment for their employees though PSO since then keeps its system up to date all the time. The first thing they talked about was the SAP system, which in the late 90s was considered to  be a big achievem achievement ent for any any company. company. By applying applying the SAP SAP system system all of the the PSO’s PSO’s data went went online. Through this system PSO enhanced their purchasing system which was beneficial for its employees. This system gives global access to the employees avoiding the hassle that was done

 

through manual forms previously. All the data which went online was now secure and arranged  purely..  purely PSO then introduced Golden Hand Shake which was to hire fresh MBAs, which was not a usual practice at that time. By introducing this they started evaluating their old employees which made them to release the inefficient employees from their jobs. This improved PSO credibility in the job market. This was reflected through the efficient employees that joined PSO and played a major role in PSO’s success and growth. PSO all over Pakistan runs 3500 retail outlets out of which 1700 outlets were completely revamped during the transformation process which was also a very big achievement for PSO. They completely changed the look of PSO’s petrol pumps and introduced car washing and window cleaning services to give best value to their customers. Not just that they also created Stop Shop on their retail outlets. outlets. This added value of PSO in the eyes of the consumer. They complet com pletely ely rebrand rebranded ed their their compan company y through through which the green green colour colour became became their their brand brand recognition. recogn ition. Their transformation transformation made the outlets more attractive and comfortable which was a major factor to boost up the outlet sales. In view of current scenario of severe energy crisis and increasing increasing cost of power generation, generation, all small to large scale industries in Pakistan have reduced their dependency on the fuel oils. The  powerr driven industry  powe industry is switching switching their fuel oil need to natural gas; comparatively comparatively a cheaper  cheaper  source in Pakistan. Increasing population of Gas Engines has created intense demand of Gas Engine Oils. To strive to get to the future first, PSO launched its Gas Engine Oils and is now making efforts to gain market share. With the intention of taping more market share, a joint effort was initiated for Karachi and Hyderabad market by its Consumer Business Divisions. Another achievement of PSO worth mentioning here is that not only our local universities IBA, LUMs but international university like HARVAD also did their case studies on PSO. Some of the things that were achieved during their transformation process were: They completely revamped their website The interior of PSO was changed, no more wooden tables and chairs. Computers were changed Tank truck automation system Online hiring system Tender qualification went online Mobile quality checking system  Now the the company company is is customer customer oriented oriented Though they are a public sector company but their working style has completely changed and  becomee one like  becom like of a private private company. company. They became winner of Karachi Stock Exchange and received a top company award They became the first Pakistani public sector company to be a member of World Economic Forum (WEF) They became a company which was fully aware of health and safety environment standards and using them as a part of their continuous improvement process. Since many Since many years, years, PSO’s professio professional nal management management team and the staff staff of PSO has been been working together for the growth and remarkable performance of their company. Today PSO is not only the largest oil company but it is also the largest public sector source for business in

 

Pakistan with its rapid development, growth and marketing plans, PSO is dedicated to increase its market share, profits , and meet the need for energy. Pakistan Army has been using Galol Oil, an imported Ukrainian Oil, for Ukrainian Main Battle Tanks (MBT), T-80 UD. The T-80 UD is the most advanced Soviet designed battle tank. The Army has been dependent on the foreign supplier for the supply of Galol oil to meet the engine oil lubrica lubrication tion require requirement ment of T-80 T-80 UD Tanks. Tanks. Muham Muhammad mad Amjad Amjad Ur Rahma Rahman, n, Senior  Senior  Technical Services Engineer, PSO took initiative and started meetings with the defense high ranking officials at GHQ for developing a local tailor made tank engine oil to replace the imported Ukranian Galol Oil. The objective of this exercise was to make the product locally available for Pakistan Army and to minimize their dependence dependence on foreign foreign supplier. supplier. PSO tailor  madee produc mad productt qualifie qualified d the trial trial paramete parameters rs and the defense defense author authoritie itiess conseq consequen uently tly have have shown their satisfaction and have expressed their desire to register PSO’s newly developed  productt  produc as a proprietary proprietary grade against against the Ukrainian Ukrainian Galole Oil. This is yet another milestone achieved by PSO with concerted team efforts which enabled the Pak Pak Army Army to pu putt an end end to th thee fo forei reign gn depe depend nden ency cy an and d sa save ve foreig foreign n ex excha chang nge. e. PSO’s PSO’s management appreciates the team behind this success and encourages more innovative ideas.

4. FAILURE STORIES:

A company who is continuously supplying us with fuel and owns more than 70% of market share has never faced any failure. They rather talk about the challenges that they’ve faced. Their main problem is of circular debt that they don’t get their receivables back from the government agencies like KESC, WAPDA etc. They say it very proudly, that even if we are not covering back our receivables from our  customers, PSO has never stopped the supply of fuel, from our part at all. This is because of  PSO’s responsible behavior and enough financial backup that they can still cater to its clients effectively. effectivel y. Media also plays an important important role in getting PSO’s PSO’s money back as after few days it is heard that PSO has stop supplying fuel to WAPDA, though in reality it never happens. When talking about failure, the products that PSO have introduced until now have been a success. Though a slow progress is seen at some part but we haven’t had major failures. Our  VIS service showed a slow progress, but ultimately it became quite progressing product. E10 fuel is also one of the slow progressing product as the demand is quite high and its supply significantly low. This is because E10 is still on test and PSO is waiting for market results. They have quite a few feedbacks from this product but still have the capacity to continue it at some of it major petrol stations.

5. FUTURE PLANS:

Like any other company their future plan is related to growth, development and valuing their  employees. Through market research and product development they plan to maintain, improve

 

their service, performance and grow its market share. They want to attend to the challenges faced by the company right now and make the future plans accordingly. PSO also aims to diversify and expand its Gas business. Gas keeps a significant market share in the oil market as it is being demand by many businesses and individuals. When it comes to lubricants PSO wants to have an edge and be a market leader in this. They are planning to introduce more products in this category and looking forward for a positive response. Not only a market leader in lubricants, PSO is also focusing on catering the needs of  energy production as they want to turn themselves into an energy company. Through proper  research and development they want to introduce the concept of Bio-fuels, which is to derive fuel from biomass. This will be done through vegetable oil, fermenting sugar, and animal fats. E10 fuel was launched in Punjab as well in July’10 and PSO intends to grow its network  throughout the country soon. soon. PSO still wants to improve their retail marketing position through  proper marketing marketing campaigns campaigns and adding over over more vision outlets outlets in the country. The company company aims to extend the Mother-daughter concept of CNG stations, which is to supply CNG at those outlets where piped gas is not available.

6. RECOMME RECOMMENDATIONS: NDATIONS:

PSO should should divers diversify ify into the related related produc products ts i.e. creating creating some unique unique features features in the  products  produc ts to attract attract their consumer. consumer. They They should should add some complem complementary entary products products in in the future future which can increase their business even more. It is likely in the future that the organization organization is going to expand the business business and enter into the new market. Ability to move with the better strategies i.e. applying some new ways to cover the losses, increase the financial resources or increase the market share can be of a significant effect to PSO. They should should also continue continue introducing new product having the features that are very first in the market i.e. not in any other product offered by any competitor. PSO is lagging behind in the field of marketing research. So they should pay attention to make the research and development department efficient and active. This would definitely increase their market share. PSO has a huge huge network network of retail retail outlets outlets.. Manage Managemen mentt should should work in depth depth to know that which petrol pumps are more profitable and which are generating low sales so they can adopt new policies in order to increase sales. PSO has also to make its position stronger in this growing environment. It should appoint checking staff apart from sales men on retail outlets who can check the quality and quantity of oil products and can listen to the claims of people. Similarly, the R and D department should conduct research for promotion of its products and for exploring new ways of fascinating customers towards PSO products .For distributing its  products  produc ts in Northern Northern Areas; Areas; PSO has to incur incur some losses losses due due to higher transporta transportation tion charges. charges. So arrangements should be made to make PSO sell on at least breakeven.
