As far as Housing facilities in KCIL are concerned there are no proper ventilation and cleanness. It is very much obvious from the responses given by the executives that they need to be fine tuned. Educational facilities are not completely satisfactory due to the Lengthy procedure and Terms and conditions. Proper attention has not been paid to the social atmosphere in the company that is why executives feel that they are more mechanical the social elements. So we have to conduct games, sports, creative arts, get together, distribution of prizes, recognition awards etc. Due to hazardous nature of work the technical staff has been deprived of the healthy working environment. The working conditions need to be monitored constantly in order to reduce the work hazards. Welfare measures like prompt medical facilities, canteens, restrooms, conveyances should be given top priority.

CONCLUSIONS Nature of job, Colleagues, Welfare facilities, Conveyance, working hours, managerial communication are accepted to be at higher level satisfaction by the respondents. Salary and monetary benefits, higher post else in future, Congenial and general climate, safety and security and stated to be fairly satisfied. Housing facilities is not up to the acceptable level of satisfaction.

Every organization should take care of the employees as their primary customers and should have major priority satisfying them so that in turn their productive and efficient work would lead to customer satisfaction and organization profitability.
