INTRODUCTION TO TOPIC

Labor welfare is an important facet of industrial relation. After employees have been hired, trained, and remunerated, they need to be retained and maintained to serve the organization better. Welfare facilities are designed to take care of the well-being of the employees; they do not generally result in monetary benefits to the employees. Nor are these facilities provided by employer alone. Government and non-government agencies and trade unions too, contribute towards employee welfare. The need and important of labor welfare is being increasingly appreciated throughout the civilized world. The worker both in industry and agriculture cannot cope up with the pace of modern life with minimum sustainable amenities. He needs an added stimulus to keep body and soul together. Employers have realized the importance of their role in providing these extra amenities. Each employer depending upon on his priorities gives varying degrees of importance to labor welfare. It is because the government is not sure that all employers are progressive minded and will provide basic welfare measures that it introduces statutory legislation from time to time bring about some measures of uniformity in the basic amenities available to Industrial workers.

Prof. S .D . Pinker has been defined as Labor Welfare is also understood mean such services facilities and amenities which may be established in industries to enable person employed there in to perform their work in healthy and congenial surrounding and to promote them with amenities to conduct good health and good moral. A significant definition describes labour Welfare works as the voluntary efforts of the employer to improve living and working condition of these employees. The underlying assumptions of course, being that the first essential to the welfare of the employees, on steady work a fair wage ,responsible house of labour. Labor welfare has been defined in several ways and therefore understood various ways in various countries. The term welfare is one with lead itself to various interpretations and it has not always the same significant in different countries.

IMPORTANCE OF WELFARE WORK IN INDIA


Labour welfare work got importance because of the following reasons. 1) the welfare activities influence the sentiments of the workers .when worker feels that the employers and the state are interested in their happiness ,his tendency to grouse and grumble will steadily disappear. The development of such feeling paves the way for industrial peace.

2) the provision of various welfare measures makes the worker realize that they also some stake in the undertaking in which they are engaged and so think thrice before taking any reckless action which might prejudice the interest of undertaking

3) The welfare measures like cheap food in canteens, free medical and educational facilities etc. Indirectly increase industrial dispute the real income of the workers. Hence they try to avoid industrial dispute , as far as possible and do not go on strikes on flimsy grounds . 4) Welfare activities will go a long way to better the mental and moral health of workers by reducing the incidence of vices of industrialization.

PRINCIPLES OF LABOUR WELFARE


Certain fundamental considerations are involved in the concept of labour welfare. The following are the more important among them. 1. Social responsibility of industry This principle is based on the social conception of industry and its role in the society that is, the understanding that social responsibility of the state is manifested through industry. It is assumed that labour welfare is an expression of industrys duty towards its employees. Social responsibility means that the obligation of the industry to pursue those policies, to take such decisions, and to follow those lines of action which are desirable in terms of the objectives and values currently obtaining in the society. The values of the Indian community are enshrined in the constitution of the country. Labour welfare is not embroidery on capitalism nor the external dressing of an exploitative management; rather, it is an expression of the assumption by industry of its responsibility for its employees (Maurice Bruce, 1961). Industry is expected to win the cooperation of the workers, provide them security of employment, fair wage, and equal opportunity for personal growth and advancement, and make welfare facilities available to them. 2. Democratic values The principle of democratic values of labour welfare concedes that workers may have certain unmet needs for no fault of their own, that industry has an obligation to render them help in gratifying those needs, and that workers have a right of determining the manner in which these needs can be met and of participating in the administration of the mechanism of need gratification. The underlying assumption to this approach is that the worker is a mature and rational individual who is capable of taking decisions for him/her. 3. Adequacy of wages The third principle of labour welfare is adequacy of wages; it implies that labour welfare measures are not a substitute for wages. It will be wrong to argue that since workers are given a variety of labour welfare services, they need be paid only low wages. Right to adequate wage is beyond dispute. 4. Efficiency The fourth principle of labour welfare lays stress on the dictum that to cultivate welfare is to cultivate efficiency. Even those who deny any social responsibility for industry do accept that an
MBA(HRM) Page 23

enterprise must introduce all such labour welfare measures which promote efficiency (Marshall, 1950). It has been often mentioned that workers education and training, housing, and diet are the three most important aspects of labour welfare, which always accentuate labour efficiency. Repersonalization Since industrial organization is rigid and impersonal, the goal of welfare in industry is the enrichment and growth of human personality. The labour welfare movement seeks to bring cheer, comfort, and warmth in the human relationship by treating man as an individual, with quiet distinct needs and aspirations. Social and cultural programmers, recreation and other measures designed after taking into consideration the workers interests go a long way in counteracting the effects of monotony, boredom, and cheerlessness.

5. Co-responsibility The fifth principle of labour welfare recognizes that the responsibility for labour welfare lies on both employers and workers and not on employers alone (Mouthy, 1958). Labour welfare measures are likely to be of little success unless mutuality of interest and responsibilities are accepted and understood by both the parties, in particular the quality of responsibility at the attitudinal and organizational level. Totality of welfare The final principle of labour welfare is that the concept of labour welfare must permeate throughout the hierarchy of an organization, and accepted by all levels of functionaries in the enterprise.

SCOPE OF LABOUR WELFARE WORK It is somewhat difficult to accurately lay down the scope of labour welfare work, especially because of the fact that labour class is composed of dynamic individuals with complex needs. In a world of changing values, where ideologies are rapidly undergoing transformation, rigid statements about the field of labour welfare need to be revised. Labour welfare work is increasing with the growing knowledge and experience of techniques. An able welfare officer
MBA(HRM) Page 24

would, therefore, include in his welfare programmed the activities that would be conducive to the well-being of the worker and his family. The test of the welfare activity is that it removes, directly or indirectly, any hindrance, physical or mental of the worker and restores to him the peace and joy of living the welfare work embraces the worker and his family The following list, which is by no means exhaustive, gives the items under which welfare work should be conducted inside and outside the work place:

1) Conditions of work environment:


The workshop sanitation and cleanliness, humidity, ventilation, lighting, elimination of dust, smoke, fumes and gases, convenience and comfort during work, operative postures, sitting arrangements etc; distribution of work hours and provision for rest times, breaks and workmens safety measures.

2) Workers health services:


These should include factory health centre; medical examination of workers, factory dispensary and clinic for general treatment; infant welfare; womens general education; workers recreation facilities; education, etc;

3) Labor welfare programmed:


These should cover factory council consisting of representatives of labor and employers; social welfare departments; interview and vocational testing; employment, follow-up, research bureau; workmens arbitration council.

4) Labors Economic welfare programmed:


These should include co-operatives or fair price shops for consumer necessities; co-operative credit society, thrift schemes and savings bank; health insurance; employment bureau; etc.
MBA(HRM) Page 25

CLASSIFICATION OF LABOUR ACTIVITIES :


The labour Welfare activities may be classified as under: 1) statutory: Every welfare promotes the welfare the labour by securing and protecting a social order in which justice, social, economical, political, confirms with all the institutions of the natural life. For this some legislation are passed and it is essential for all the employers to follow the provisions of the Acts and Rules. These legislative measures generally regulate working conditions, minimum wages, safety and sanitation. Such statutory provisions are gradually increasing with the industrial development in the countries.

2) voluntary: Under voluntary welfare, all those activities are including which are undertaken by the employees for their workers at their own. These activities are not statutory but the employees undertake these activities because they increase the efficiency of the workers and maintain the industrial peace.

3) Mutual : Mutual welfare activities are those activities which are initiated by the workers for their betterment .Welfare activities undertaken by the trade unions are included under this head. Labour welfare activities may be further classified under two heads: 1) Intra Mural Activities : Intra mural activities are those amenities and services which have been provided by the employers inside the factories e.g. sanitary conditions ,medical facilities ,shelter ,canteens etc. These activities are the part of working conditions.

2)

Extra Mural Activities : Extra mural activities are those amenities and services which are available in the

MERTIS AND DEMERITS OF WELFARE MEASURES:

Employee welfare is justified for several reasons. It is desirable to recollect the services of a typical worker in this context. His/her employee helps dig and haul coal from the depths of the earth to fetch and refine oil , to build dams and reservoirs, to lay pipes, canals, railway lines and roads. His/her employee creates and transmits power, and through various phases of manufacturing, patterns raw material into finished products of necessity as well as luxury. Welfare may help minimize social evils, such as alcoholism, gambling, prostitution, drug addiction and the like. A worker is likely to fall a victim to any of these if he /she is dissatisfied or frustrated. Welfare facilities tend to make the worker happy, cheerful and confident looking.

Co-operative credit societies: : The objective of setting of these societies is to encourage thrift and provide loan facilities at reasonable terms and conditions, primarily to employees, some organization encourage employee to form cooperative credit societies with a view of fostering self help rather than depending upon money lenders, whereas some organizations provide loans to employees directly.

Housing: Of all the requirements of the workers decent and cheap housing accommodation is of great significance. The problem of housing is one of the main causes for fatigue and worry among employees and this comes in the way of discharging their duties effectively, most of the organizations are located very far from towns where housing facilities are not available. Hence most of the organizations built quarters nearer to factory and provided cheap and decent housing facilities to their employees, while a few organization provide or arrange for housing loans to employees and encourage them to construct houses.

Legal Aid: Organization also provide assistance or aid regarding legal matters to employees as and when necessary through company lawyers or other lawyers.

RESEARCH METHODOLOGY

INTRODUCTION & MEANING OF RESEARCH

MEANING OF RESEARCH: Research in common parlance refers to a search for knowledge. Once can also define research as a scientific systematic search for pertinent information on a specific topic. In fact, research is an art of scientific investigation. The Advanced Learners Dictionary of Current English lays down the meaning of research as a careful investigation or inquiry especially through search for new facts in any branch of knowledge. Some people consider research as a movement, a movement from the known to the unknown. It is actually a voyage of discovery. We all possess the vital instinct of inquisitiveness for when the unknown confronts us, we wonder and our inquisitiveness makes us probe and attain full and fuller understanding of the unknown. This inquisitiveness is the mother of all knowledge and the method, which man employs for obtaining the knowledge of whatever the unknown, can be termed as research.

Definition of Research: According to Redman and Mory: Research means systematized effort to gain new knowledge.
