The company employs more than 14,500 employees across its different plants and has an annual revenue of around A$6 billion.

The report here has provided a proper analysis of the changes to be made in the organization especially in the HR department of the organization to usher in new and positive changes to ensure productivity within the business organization. The report thus presents the different initiatives that are considered by the management of the company before and after the start of the transformation project in the organization.

Performance Related Initiatives

According to, Bromley and Meyer (2017) the theories and practices of the organization have long established different kinds of links in between the effective performance measures and the effective measure of the management. The effectiveness and efficiency of the given measures of performance depends on the way the performance will be completed. The management of Coca Cola Amatil uses the measures of the performance as a management tool and thus it needs to be broadened in the perfect manner in order to ensure success of the business (ccamatil.com 2019). The creation of a benchmark is one of the most important measures in this area as the presence of a benchmark is important to judge the performance of the employees.

The management of Coca Cola Amatil has been trying to change the current scenario of the organization in a proper and effective manner that can help in the success of the business in the most effective manner. There has been problems in the performance of the organizations since a long time and thus the organization has been trying to formulate the best strategy that can help in the success of the business in the most proper manner. The presence of the performance perspectives and the importance of the transformation makes the change a necessity for the improvement of the performance.

The annual report of the company for the year 2018 supports the claim of the organization as the management has focused extensively on the performance of the employees in a broad and widened manner. The perform pillar is generally guided by the shareholder value proposition and the aim of this proposition is to focus on the daily activities of the company. The management of the company will ensure the implementation of the different kind of the performance related initiatives to ensure the changes in the performance of the employees and make them much sharper and efficient.

The six sigma process is considered to be a benchmarking process as it helps the management of the Coca Cola Company to implement a structured and systematic process that can address the issues related to the performance of the employees and transform the productivity of the employees positively.

The key to the successful organization is the presence of a culture that is capable of addressing a wide range of beliefs and shares and also supports different kinds of strategy and structure. The presence of a strong and better organizational culture can help to ensure three different things which includes the likes of the knowledge of the employees on the way on how the management works them to perform, the belief of the employees to be the exact response as the most appropriate one and the knowledge of the reward system of the organization to showcase the value of the business organization in the most efficient manner.

The cultural changes in the organization can be brought by the management of the business organization over a period of time with the implementation of a number of different steps. This includes the change in the values of the business organization. The change in the values can help to bring in stability, innovation, aggressiveness and team orientation which can be successful for Coca Cola and help to improve the performance of the company in a phased and systematic manner (Dentchev et al. 2016).
