For every organization, the satisfaction of its personnel carries maximum importance and Dawn is no exception. It has been observed during the activity of SWOT that the employees are highly satisfied with their work.
Its all because of the high pay scales and the other fringe benefits being provided an activity was performed in the form of discussion with employees of the various departments to check their satisfaction level and we found them highly satisfied.

Third Parties: Compliance by third parties with the present Code is part of the obligation to be diligent and in good faith in the conduct of negotiations with the Company. Any violation of the present Code could be considered, according to its relevance, cause of dismissal or cause of resolution of the employment relationship. Leadership Styles: Employee-centered Leadership: Employee-centered Leadership style which believes in relationship building with the Clients is present all over Dawn.
Employees are given freedom in the performance of their work and are kept towards their target. Authority is delegated and an open door policy is being adopted which means that all kinds of suggestions are appreciated as long as they are realistic. Democratic style is used and employees are given work freedom. Adnan Shokat Objective Setting: General objectives are given to managers who in turn distribute the specific objectives to all workers working in their departments after having discussions with them.
The entire atmosphere revolves around the Clients and the tasks needed to fulfill their needs. While assigning objectives, the fact is ensured that these objectives are in line with the company policy and are in harmony with the briefs generated from the particular Client. Division of Labor: Sometimes it happens that a very sharp and intelligent worker is employed among temporary workers, so he is preferred over those permanent workers who have been made permanent only on the grounds of time spent in the organization.
Organizations have tasks that need to be performed. These tasks are combined into activities. People who do similar activities are combined together so that they can be administrated more appropriately. This combination is called departmentalization. Departmentalization at Dawn is on the basis of services and functions performed to provide these services to private and Public sector Clients.
Administrative Styles: Various management styles can be employed dependent on the culture of the business, the nature of the task, the nature of the workforce and the personality and skills of the leaders. We can say than DAWN follows Permissive Democrat style in which decisions are made in a participative manner and subordinates are given latitude in carrying out their work.
Management comprises Planning Organizing Staffing Leading or directing Controlling An organization a group of one or more people or entities or effort for the purpose of accomplishing a goal. Resourcing encompasses the deployment and manipulation of human resources, financial resources, technological resources, and natural resources.
Because organizations can be viewed as systems, management can also be defined as human action, including design, to facilitate the production of useful outcomes from a system. This view opens the opportunity to 'manage' oneself, a pre-requisite to attempting to manage others.
Management can also refer to the person or people who perform the act s of management. The democratic manager keeps his or her employees informed about everything that affects their work and shares decision making and problem solving responsibilities.
This style requires the leader to be a coach who has the final say, but gathers information from staff members before making a decision. Democratic leadership can produce high quality and high quantity work for long periods of time. Many employees like the trust they receive and respond with cooperation, team spirit, and high morale. Typically the democratic leader: Adnan Shokat Benfits of Participative style of Management: Like the other styles, the democratic style is not always appropriate.
It is most successful when used with highly skilled or experienced employees or when implementing operational changes or resolving individual or group problems.
The democratic leadership style is most effective when: Democratic leadership should not be used when: One of the main benefits of participative leadership is that the process allows for the development of additional leaders who can serve the organization at a later date. Because leaders who favor this style encourage active involvement on the part of everyone on the team, people often are able to express their creativity and demonstrate abilities and talents that would not be made apparent otherwise.
The discovery of these hidden assets help to benefit the work of the current team, but also alerts the organization to people within the team who should be provided with opportunities to further develop some skill or ability for future use. Participative leadership also expands the range of possibilities for the team. When leadership styles that essentially leave all the direction and decision making in the hands of one individual, it is much more difficult to see a given approach from several different angles.
When the leadership style encourages others to be involved in the decision making process, a given course of action can be approached from a variety of perceptions. This can often point out strengths or weaknesses to the approach that would have gone unobserved and thus unresolved without this type of participatory brainstorming and decision making. One potential disadvantage of participate leadership is the time factor.
This leadership style does often involve the need for more time before action is taken. This is only natural, since the very nature of participative leadership means allowing input from every member of the team.
However, the extra time necessary for this process often leads to decisions that ultimately benefit everyone to a greater degree than faster decisions that are more limited in scope. Adnan Shokat Production: Production at Dawn refers to two parts: Pre-Press press Pre Press: Pre press refers to all the preparations before printing. This includes: The news material and pictures etc are scanned and uploaded to the computer Graphics: Adnan Shokat Page making: Placement of the news, editorials, advertisements and pictures on the pages.

CTP Computer to Plate: The conversion of the pages as planned on the computer on to aluminum sheets which are then sent to press for printing. All the pre-press work is done mostly in Karachi head office except for the CTP process which is done in Lahore.
The material to be printed is sent to Lahore through satellite transmission to the Communication Department. The communication department checks ad placements and news placements and then forwards it to the Production department. In the Production Department in Lahore the CTP process is completed after which the aluminum plates are sent to the press.
The aluminum sheets used are disposable and used only once. Adnan Shokat Software Used: In the pre press process the software used are: Photoshop Quark express Coral etc Press: Press refers to the printing of the newspaper. Human Resource in Production In Lahore only press is more active in the production department.
The department has a team of some 15 members which include: At night the press team is headed by the Production Coordinator, who coordinates with all the departments such as advertisement, editorial, communication etc. Adnan Shokat Production Planning: An operations plan can make all the difference in your production. At Dawn production planning is very significant because newspapers are perishable goods. Time management is very critical In this regard. Production Planning is related to three parts: Productivity Quality Time lines All these are taken care at from pre press to the press.
Material in Production: Material used for Dawn newspaper production is divided into two parts Paper Ink Print Machinery Spare parts Dawn imports all the material.
Ink is imported from Belgium. Paper is imported from Russia. The bulk buying of the material is done by the head office and then the required material is sent to the local stations as per their requirements. Adnan Shokat Print Machinery: The print machine used by Dawn is a web offset machine, in which paper rolls are used for printing. There are 3 types of machinery spare parts for Dawn: Easily Available: This saves cost and gives the best alternative to the imported spare part. Adnan Shokat Storage: The particular level of inventory is maintained for the print material.
There are two types of stores that control the inventory: Main Store: It is used for the storage of all the imported materials received from the head office. Sub Store: Some inventory is maintained at the press for emergency purposes. A small sub store therefore, is maintained at the press. Maintenance of Machines: All machinery requires proper maintenance.
For Dawn its utmost important to have the press running in a perfect condition. For this the production department makes sure that the machine is given proper care and maintained timely.
The routine maintenance of the press at dawn includes daily, weekly, monthly and 6-monthly schedules. The production coordinator makes sure that these schedules are strictly followed. The Electrical and Mechanical Consultants over-head these maintenance tasks.

Production is the most significant department in any organization. At Dawn Newspaper, it is particularly critical because timely production is very critical.
Any bottlenecks in the production may lead to serious damages not only financially but also to the image and goodwill of the company. Dawn makes sure to avoid any such problems.
Editorial The biggest tailback is delay in the news. Sometimes the editorial staff has to wait for special news that causes the delay in dispatching the soft copy of the newspaper to the stations. Advertising Agency Sometimes the delay in newspaper may be due to advertising agencies. If the advertisement required to print is not received in time, the newspaper may get delayed. Intermediary Departments The newspaper reaches the communication department in Lahore has to be very vigilant in this regard.
They have to send the paper to the press as soon as they receive the soft copy. Technical breakdown: The press comprises of a huge printing machine, with various parts. At times some of the part may get a problem. Such small technical problems are handles immediately under the consultation of the mechanical consultant.
