Right Person for the Right Job - ASTC conducts examination to find the right leader
Assam State Transport Corporation (ASTC) is planning to conduct examination for its employees, including senior officers, to pick the right person for the right job. The first level of the examination was conducted on 6th October, Friday. Examinations of same sort will be conducted in the next month for different profiles too.
Officers in the rank of divisional engineers, divisional superintendents, station superintendents, assistant engineers, assistant station superintendents and even those at the headquarters will have to appear for the competence examination.
Speaking to G Plus, MD of ASTC, A. P Tiwari said, "We will conduct the examination for all rank holders, and employees of all the profiles. The question materials of the examination will be set in accordance with the profile. Our motive is to place the right leader at the right place. We cannot ask anyone to leave the job, but we can filter who can lead the team best. This is the main motive of the examination."
The MD further said that, if anyone of higher rank fails to perform well in the examination, the person's responsibility will be altered, although it will no way affect his pay. The person will hold the same rank, with different responsibilities. He would further be provided with training to learn and act upon his responsibilities better.
