Massege by mian amir mehmood:
Dear Parents, I firmly believe that education is the basic right of all human beings living on this planet regardless of their social background. An educated nation is democratically stable and consistent in its economic viability, a lesson learnt through my passion for education for the last three decades.
Though the state is primarily responsible to eradicate illiteracy, this task cannot be accomplished without realization and endeavors by all of the stakeholders of our society.
In order to enable all individuals to reach and utilize their maximum potential, education is categorically imperative. Education also combats unemployment, confirms sound foundation of social equity, awareness, tolerance and spread of political socialization and cultural vitality. To meet such challenges, we all need to extend helping-hand to one another for the generations to come. I am proud of the fact that we have been able to make a remarkable contribution for quality education in Pakistan.
We have, therefore, tried to share in the development of human resource capital from the general masses by providing affordable educational opportunities throughout Pakistan.
I hope and desire that our education system should produce responsible, enlightened citizens to align Pakistan with the global framework of economic and social prosperity. I am confident that Allied Schools will suffice this dire need of our society. Allied Schools is another effort to remain on the leading role for literacy improvement in Pakistan. I, therefore, welcome to parents and their children to become part of Allied Schools family to grow together. I believe it is today we must create the world of the future. Sincerely yours,
Mian Amir Mahmood

Performance management refers to the ongoing process of setting goals, self-assessment, manager assessment, coaching, development planning, and evaluation. A key aspect of performance management is performance measurement. Clear and concise measures are required in order to properly define the desired goals in performance management. Most performance management systems fail to achieve the desired goals because goal measurement is not specific enough, poorly communicated or because results cannot be measured effectively.
Employee performance management works best when work is planned and goals are consistent .Allied schools plans and sets goals for performance management that creates rewards for good performance, and consequences for poor performance. In this way the employee feels the consequences of work performance, whether good or bad. Performance management gives feedback to employees on consistent basis than the average annual basis.
By this the employee’s ability to exceed or failure to meet goals may be monitored. This provides the employee the opportunity to receive rewards or to make behavior changes sooner if performance is not up to par.
ALLIED SCHOOL PERFORMANCE CYCLE: Figure taken from the book: “Organizational goal setting Strategy Performance Management:” • Identify expected performance levels • Measure individual performance; • Provide feedback on individual performance • Reward based on performance Employee Performance Management Outcomes: • Transfers • Promotion • Pay rises • Termination Organizational Results: • Goals met or not met

Opportunities Solar emery Project This initiative has wider national significance as energy scarcity is currently the country’s biggest problem. With Pakistan’s exceptionally good solar radiation ratings, the project could shift the focus of energy production towards technologies that use local natural resources and away from fossil fuel burning thermal power plants that rely heavily on imported fuel. Through distinct and independent divisions in Pakistan, it caters to the education and training needs of a large and diverse group of individuals of varying ages, socio-economic backgrounds, and nationalities, with its activities also extending beyond education in some countries.

CRITICAL ANALYSIS: During my internship period I was very much impressed to see the working environment that was provided to the employees. But due to my observations there are certain things to be criticize such as:
a) EMPLOYEE SELECTION PROCESS: If a vacancy is vacant the preference is mostly given to females not males even though the qualification of male is high.
b) PAY SCALE: The work load on males is much more as compared to females but the pay scales of females are much more as compared to males. However every Saturday is off for females but alternative Saturday is off for males. That is the main reason about 70 to 80% employees including management consists of females.
c) EMPLOYEE PERFORMANCE: If the assistant manager’s skills and performance is better than the manager, he cannot be promoted until the manager retires or resigns. That’s why many assistant managers with excellent communicational skill and performance resign.
d) COMPENSATIONAL BENEFITS:
No bonuses are given to the employees. Pension is also finished from this year. Now there is no pension and bonus for employees.
e) WORK LOAD: Employee’s salaries are very low as compared to their work load due to which many employees resign.
Conclusion; I have concluded that Allied schools have a big business volume. They are providing Quality education in the public sector The head office where I have done my internship has an Organized and efficient system. But the number of turnover of employees is high. The working system of organization is based on MIS. All the work is done through proper channel. The working staff is very cooperative with the new trainees and encourages them to work with them. Allied schools are one of the largest private sector school organizations in the world. With vast and growing network, they at Allied schools are always on the lookout for skilled and capable people willing to take on a challenge. Allied schools offers competitive employee packages and has a vibrant and dynamic working environment. There are a variety of job opportunities at different levels available in organization in two specific areas: academics and corporate. The overall analysis is indicating that the company’s progress has mainly attained through dedication of employees. The effectiveness of its management, their willingness to take advantage of opportunities and face challenges of changing requirement of well-educated and confident children on the society, this all contributes to the very much improved and sound position of company. This is really appreciable for the devotion and hard work of all the employees of the company.
But the main issue is related to affordability of the all classes of the society. This quality education should be affordable to all the people.The overall structure of ALLIED SCHOOL is excellent. I am very proud to complete my internship from this organization. I learnt a lot of things in very short interval of time. In ALLIED SCHOOL system the Human Resource Department plays the key role in the hiring, retention, motivation and promotion of the employees. They are also trying to improve their HR process and utilizing new concepts and techniques of HR to provide better facilities for their staff as well as to improve their skills to gain more advantages. They believe that their people are their asset and to emphasize this concept they invest more on their people, keeping this in view that in this way their organization will groom. ALLIED SCHOOL system is constantly planning for its staffing requirements, for this the HR department follow a complete selection process and gather resumes and then they start their selection and recruitment process following by interviews in which interviewee is compared with the set standard of HR and then they follow the steps of selecting the candidates. After selecting a person they give training to the person as per requirement and then the newly hired employee starts his work. After completion of probation period manager of the concern department forward a performance report to the HR department and regional director to suggested increment for him and after successful completion of probation period employee gets confirmation letter. ALLIED SCHOOL school system conducts training sessions to enhance the abilities of its employee. They conduct training need assessment programs and arrange training programs as per requirement. In ALLIED SCHOOL system annual increments are based on employee performance. Regional director reviews the performance of all employees and
compare standards with the actual performance. ALLIED SCHOOL system is providing compensations and benefits to it employees on the basis of their designations. Employees at different designations are enjoying different compensations and benefits but basic benefits that include medical, holidays and educational allowance are almost same for all employees. ALLIED SCHOOL system career management opportunity is common for teachers. Every month 5 to 10 transfers and separations are very common.ALLIED SCHOOL is trying to control this situation because student’s studies get affected by this.
Recommendations: Fee of the schools of Allied school should be affordable. Company should provide the conveyance to the employees. Discrimination b/w employees should be avoided. High level manger should cooperate with the lower level employees and should encourage them They should improve their computerized system. It should be latest to cope up with the modern need of accounting and financing system. In regional offices proper facilities should be provided to the employees like Air-conditioning, and latest working equipment. In Head office all the employees should be provided the laptops instead of desktop computers. The overall working environment of Allied schools is excellent but there are
certain things that should be improved in my opinion:
a) EDUCATION: The Allied schools pays a lot of attention on A-level and primary classes but they pay less attention to Metric sections, that’s why the result of Allied schools metric section is decreasing continuously. Another reason for this is that the teachers use old notes for metric sections. As we know that the syllabus changes continuously and new things are added in the syllabus each year but the teachers teach from the same notes each year without any change or additions. To improve the metric result teachers should use new updated notes for teaching and Allied schools should also focus on metric result sincerely.
b) PAY POLICY: The pay policy of Allied schools is very low due to which many teachers and good performers resign and join other institutions. Allied schools should increase their pay policy so that good performers may not leave easily.
c) EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR MALE AND FEMALE: There should be equal employment opportunities for both males and females. Females and males should also have equal pays at same level or designation.
d) BONUSES AND PENSIONS: Allied schools should give at least one bonus near EID because Employees pays are very low and the bonus near Eid can be very useful for them. Pensions should be started again because this is the only benefit that employee has after retirement.
