A Nations economy that depends on organized/ planned production, aiming at the realization of social justice and welfare of the masses, can function effectively only in an atmosphere of industrial peace. If the twin objectives of rapid national development and increased social justice are to be achieved, all measures should be undertaken to ensure harmonious relationship between management and the work force.
Robust Industrial Relations is the key to bolster productivity, quality and well being of the industry. Good industrial relations lead to higher productivity at optimum cost and higher returns for the organization & its employees.
We have witnessed unfortunate incidents of Labour Unrest in the past few years in various parts of the country and it is imperative that we understand the issues and plan a strategy to build an atmosphere of trust and goodwill that would ensure healthy Industrial relations which is crucial for sustaining the growth of our industries and the economy.
This state of engagement can be achieved by certain institutionalized measures / schemes of closer association of employees with management. The HR / IR department management functionaries are “the eyes and ears of the organization” who need to play their role effectively and with empathy. Against this backdrop, CII organised “Conference on Industrial Relations: Understanding the Dynamics”.
