State-run telecom player Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) is in the process of undertaking an organisational and human resource (HR) restructuring in the company, in a bid to adapt with the changing times. This will also enable the public sector undertaking (PSU) to save over Rs 1,000 crore on an annual basis, once the new structure is put in place.BSNL had hired Deloitte Consultancy for formulating the new structure, which was approved by the BSNL board recently.“We are revamping our HR structure to conform to the latest business trends. Until now, our HR was becoming bureaucratic with little emphasis on targets and achievements,” BSNL’s chairman and managing directorAnupam Shrivastava told Business Standard.
