It affect directly to employees by moving towards the method of working where there is less hierarchy and more flexibility in content of job, various skills and in time and location and higher use of contract staff as a fixed and part-time term. Involvement and growth of employee are directly distress to improve the implementation of business and towards the goal of strategy like flexibility, customer satisfaction and innovation they are linked (Ashwathappa, 2005) rather from the union trade the force is directly form management as been indicating by the strategic link.

purpose of corporate, inspiring the passion of employee, contribution is maximum and generates customer loyalty.

shared within the organization and as a promises organization delivers it to all constituents

organization been encourage by the environment.
