CHAPTER-4
FINDINGS AND SUGGESTIONS

56
CONCLUSION

In this project, I had tried to cover all the welfare services provided to the employees. After
doing my research work I had arrived at the conclusion that at GSKCH, employees were satisfied
but not up to full extent as they want some more changes regarding their welfare.
As 100% result cannot be achieved in any circumstances, so I would say that employees
were satisfied but not up to the extent as they want some more changes regarding their
welfare.
Canteen facilities, good quality food is provided at highly subsided rate and most of the
employees are satisfied with hygiene, which is maintained in the canteen.
Most of the employees are satisfied with the rest room facility i.e. cold water, fans cooler
& good lighting are provided in the rest room.
The company provides sources of recreation to the employees, i.e. games movies & other
programmed but most of the employees want extra recreational facilities.
The staff bus service being provided by the company is convenient and charges of bus are
nominal. Employees living in interior areas have problem of transportation.
The medical facilities provided by the company are very good, first aid boxes are easily
reachable to the employees and the facilities during emergencies are very efficient and
quick.
The company always provides good safety equipments so the employees are ensure of
their safety.
At last if the company wants to enhance their productivity then they should bring out
some changes as per the workers requirement because welfare is a major part of their
motivation through which they could be motivated to do more work productively

57
SUGGESTION

The study shows that the level of satisfaction with the working condition of GSKCH is
good but the management needed some more considerable attention for improving the
working condition, on the basis of conclusions the following suggestion are as follows:

It was found that the recreation facilities provided to the employees are not upto their
satisfaction. So, the company should find the better provision of recreation facilities.

Through the transport facilities provided to the employees are good, some employees
come from very interior areas has problems. So it would better if the company provide
cab facilities to those employees. So that they ca conveniently reach the company in time.

The company have not the facility of crche because there are only three woman
employees if the company provided alternate crche facilities it will very helpful to
woman employees.

Although the employees are satisfied with the welfare service to some extent yet the
company should try to improve the level of satisfaction.

Further for this the company needs to conduct regularly surveys for identifying the
employees problems and discuss them with the management to solve it

58
LIMITATIONS

1. Due to very tight schedule of working the employees interaction was difficult .Most of
the employees were often too busy to spare time for filling up the questionnaire.

2. Some employees were hesitant to fill up the questionnaire

3. Time period for the survey was very limited i.e. approx 6 weeks. My visit to the
factory premises was limited to 2 days in a week.

4. I had visited the factory during the day as a result the views of the night shift could not
be taken.

5. There is a communication barrier since most employees/workers are from nearby


village and do not help much as required.
