PHILOSOPHY OF EMPLOYEE WELFARE ACTIVITIES


The philosophy of employee welfare activities is based on the theory that success of industrial development depends upon harmonious relations and co-operation between employee and management (employer). The employee has a fund of knowledge and experience at his jobs. If rightly directed and fully used, it would make a good contribution to the prosperity of the organization this can be achieved only through the satisfaction of the labour.

THEORIES OF EMPLOYEE WELFARE


The Police Theory: This is based on the contention that a minimum standard of welfare is necessary for laborers. Here the assumption is that without policing, that is, without compulsion, employers do not provide even the minimum facilities for workers.

The Religious Theory: This is based on the concept that man is essentially "a religious animal."
41

The Philanthropic Theory: This theory is based on man's love for mankind. Philanthropy means "Loving Mankind."

The Trusteeship Theory This is also called the Paternalistic Theory of Employee Welfare. According to this the industrialist or employer holds the total industrial estate, properties, and profits accruing from them in a trust. The Placating Theory: According to this theory, timely and periodical acts of employee welfare can appease the workers. They are some kind of pacifiers which come with a friendly gesture. The Public Relation Theory:

This theory provides the basis for an atmosphere of goodwill between employee ,management, and also between management and the public, employee welfare programmes under this theory, work as a sort of an advertisement and help an organization to project its good image and build up and promote good and healthy public relations. The Functional Theory This is also called the Efficiency Theory. Here, welfare work is used as a means to secure, preserve and develop the efficiency and productivity of labour, it is obvious that if an employer takes good care of his workers, they will tend to become more efficient and will thereby step up production.

42

PRINCIPLES OF WELFARE ACTIVITIES


Adequacy of Wages: Employee welfare measures cannot be a substitute for wages. A combination of social welfare, emotional welfare and economic welfare together would achieve good results. Social Liability of Industry: Industry, according to this principle, has an obligation or duty towards its employees to look after their welfare Impact on Efficiency: This plays an important role in welfare services, and is based on the relationship between welfare and efficiency, though it is difficult to measure this relationship. Increase in Personality:

The development of the human personality is given here as the goal of industrial welfare which, according to this principle, should counteract the baneful effects of the industrial system. Totality of Welfare:

This emphasizes that the concept of employee welfare must spread throughout the hierarchy of an organization. Employees at all levels must accept this total concept of employee welfare programme will never really get off the ground. Co-ordination or Integration:

This plays an important role in the success of welfare services. From this angle, coordinated approach will promote a healthy development of the worker in his work, home and community. This is
43

essential for the sake of harmony and continuity in labour welfare services.

Democratic Values: The co-operation of the worker is the basis of this principle. Consultation with, and the agreement of workers in, the formulation and implementation of employee welfare services are very necessary for their success.

Responsibility: This recognizes the fact that both employers and workers are responsible for employee welfare. Trade unions, too, are involved in these programmes in healthy manner, for basically employee welfare belongs to the domain of trade union activity.

Accountability: This may also be called the Principle of Evaluation. Here, one responsible person gives an assessment or evaluation of existing welfare services on a periodical basis to a higher authority.

Timely:

44

The timeliness of any service helps in its success. To identify the employee problem and to discover what kind of help is necessary to solve it and when to provide this help are all very necessary in planning employee welfare programs.

IMPACT OF WELFARE ON EMPLOYE PRODUCTIVITY

The welfare measures aim at integrating the socio-psychological needs of employees, the unique requirements of a particular technology, t he structure and processes of the organization and the existing sociocultural environment.

It creates a culture of work commitment in organizations and society which ensure higher productivity and greater job satisfaction to the employees.

Due to the welfare measures, the employees feel that the management is interested in taking care of the employees that result in the sincerity, commitment and loyalty of the employees towards the organization.

The employees work with full enthusiasm and energetic behavior which results in the increase in production and ultimately the increased profit.

45

SCOPE OF EMPLOYEE WELFARE WORK

Employee satisfaction is supremely important in an organization because it is what productivity depends on. If your employees are satisfied they would produce superior quality performance in optimal time and lead to growing profits. Satisfied employees are also more likely to be creative and innovative and come up with breakthroughs that allow a company to grow and change positively with time and changing market conditions.

RESEARCH METHODOLOGY
Research methodology is a way to systematically solve the research problem. It includes not only the research methods, but also the logic behind using the methods. Its shows the type of sample design used, its size and the procedure used to draw the sample. In short, the search for knowledge through objective and systematic method of finding solution to a problem is research. Research Methods may be understood as all those methods /techniques that are used for conduction of research. Research methods or techniques refer to the methods the researchers use in performing research operations. Research Methodology is a way to systematically
63

solve the research problem. Thus when we talk of research methodology we not only talk of the research methods but also consider the logic behind the methods we use in the context of in the context of our research study. There are many types of research methods as analysis of historical records, analysis of documents, personnel interview, focused interview, group interview, telephone survey etc. Keeping research methods in view, we can divide it in three groups. 1. In first group, we include those methods which are concerned with the collection of data. 2. The second group consists of those statistical techniques which are used for establishing relationships between the data and unknowns. 3. The third group consists of those methods which are used to evaluate the accuracy of the results obtained.

MY RESEARCH AT Flexi Tuff International Ltd Kashipur:

TYPES OF RESEARCH: There are different types of research


66

1) Descriptive vs. Analytical: Descriptive research comprises surveys and fact-finding enquiries of different types. The main objective of descriptive research is describing the state of affairs as it prevails at the time of study. The most distinguishing feature of this method is that the researcher has no control over the variables here. He/she has to only report what is happening or what has happened. The methods of in conducting descriptive research are survey methods of all kinds, including correlation and comparative methods. Meanwhile in the analytical research, the researcher has to use the already available facts or information, and analyse them to make a critical evaluation of the subject.

2) Applied vs. Fundamental

Research can also be applied or fundamental research. An attempt to find a solution to an immediate problem encountered by a firm, an industry, a business organisation, or the society is known as applied research. Researchers engaged in such researches aim at drawing certain conclusions confronting a concrete social or business problem. On the other hand, fundamental research mainly concerns generalizations and formulation of a theory. In other words, Gathering knowledge for knowledges sake is termed pure or basic research.

3) Quantitative vs. Qualitative

Quantitative research relates to aspects that can be quantified or can be expressed in terms of quantity. It involves the measurement of quantity or amount. The various available statistical and econometric methods are adopted for analysis in such
67

research. They include correlation, regressions, time series analysis, etc. Whereas, qualitative research is concerned with qualitative phenomenon, or more specifically, the aspects relating to or involving quality or kind. The main aim of this type of research is discovering the underlying motives and desires of human beings, using in-depth interviews. The other techniques employed in such

researches are story completion tests, sentence completion tests, word association tests, and other similar projective methods. Qualitative research is particularly significant in the context of behavioural sciences, which aim at discovering the underlying motives of human behaviour. Such research help to analyse the various factors that motivate human beings to behave in a certain manner, besides contributing to an understanding of what makes individuals like or dislike a particular thing.

4) Conceptual vs. Empirical

A research related to some abstract idea or theory is known as conceptual research. Generally, philosophers and thinkers use it for developing new concepts or for reinterpreting the existing ones. Empirical research, on the other hand, exclusively relies on observation or experience with hardly any regard for theory and system. Such research is data based. They often come up with conclusions that can be verified through experiment or observation. They are also known as experimental type of research.

68

THE TYPES OF RESEARCH & METHOD ADOPTED FOR DOING THIS RESEARCH ARE: TYPE OF RESEARCH: Data are collected by using one or more appropriate method: Interview method and by filling questionnaires. The study falls under the category of Descriptive Research. It is the description of the state of affair as it exists at the present. Descriptive study is a fact finding investigation with adequate interpretation. It is the simplest type of research. It is more specific than an exploratory study, as it has focus on particular aspects or dimensions of the problem studied.

It is designed to gather descriptive information and provides information for formulating more sophisticated studies. It is also an Analytical Research because the researcher has to use facts or information already available, and analyze these to make a critical evaluation. . Research Method: Research method refers to the behavior and instruments we use in performing research operation. There are three types of data collection they are as: Interview Method:-The biggest benefit of face-to-face interviews is the human interaction that occurs. This method was purposefully selected so that the researcher could interact on a personal level with the departmental heads. Through Questionnaires:- Identical questionnaires were used to assess the training needs of the staff . A questionnaire was developed using some, but
69

not all, of the face-to-face interview questions. Some of the questions provided data that I needed, and since all the information is not relevant to the outcome of the assessment, it will not be made a part of the report. The open-ended questions required respondents to answer in their own words. This elicited in-depth responses, as opposed to limited responses. Questions were framed so that they could be answered easily. The number of questions was limited so that it could be completed in twenty minutes or Sampling Design and Sample Size Once the researcher has formulated and developed a research design including the questionnaire, the researcher has to decide the amount of people comprising the population from whom the information is to be collected. A sample design is a definite plan for obtaining a sample from a given population. All items in this field of inquiry constitute a Universe or Population. There are two types of survey: . In this project, I have used sample survey where the universe is small one as only Executive members and Departmental Heads were survey to formulate a new system. Since the time period was limited and the company personnel were busy, the sample survey was limited to the Executive Staff Members and the Departmental Heads. The selected respondents are technically called sample. Sample Survey Census Survey

POPULATION: The first step in developing any sample design is to clearly define the set of objects, technically called the Universe. In this research, the population under observation is finite, consisting of 50 employees.
70

SAMPLING METHOD There are two methods of sampling:1. Probability Sampling: It is based on the concept of random selection of a controlled procedure that assures that each Population element is gives a non-zero chance of selection. Probability Sampling is of following types: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Simple Random Systematic Cluster Stratified Double 2. Non-Probability Sampling: Non probability sampling is non-random and subjective. That is each member does not have a known non zero chance of being included. Types of Non-Probability Sampling 1. Convenience 2. Judgement 3. Quota Researcher selects the sample as per their convenience. For this research work I have chosen Non- Probability Convenience Sampling because time limit for the completion of the work is limited and also managers and employees are not available all the time.

DATA COLLECTION: Data are facts, and other relevant materials, past and present, serving a basis for the study and analysis. The data serve as a base or raw material or analysis. Without an analysis of factual data, no specific inferences can be
71

drawn on the questions under the study. The relevance, adequacy and reliability of data determine the quality of the findings of a study.

DATA COLLECTION METHOD: Data for the present study is collected from two sources: a). Primary: - The first hand information is collected with the responses of questionnaire. For this purpose a questionnaire is given to the employees of Minda Pantnagar. They were interviewed so as to get the information about the functions that are performed by them, as well as what the employers expect out of them, as per their knowledge, experience and observation.
b).Secondary: - These are sources containing data which have been

collected and complied for another purpose. The secondary sources consists of readily available compendia and already compiled statistical statements and reports whose data may be used by researchers for their studies. Secondary sources consist of not only published records and reports, but also unpublished records. It is collected with the help of following sources: INTERNET JOURNALS COMPANY MAGZINES

CONCLUSION
The welfare measures increases the productivity of the organization as well as it enhances the morale and motivation of the employees which gives a positive impact on the efficiency level of the organization. Welfare includes anything that is done for the comfort and improvement of . . employees and is provided over and above the wages. Welfare helps in

keeping the morale of . the employees high so as to retain the employees for longer duration, which helps the organization to achieve its goals.

After studying all the welfare activities I have came to a conclusion that the Employees Welfare Activities followed by the company are providing highly beneficial to its employees is not only . . .

developing them but in giving them best support contribution to their work and I have also found that the organization is doing great efforts to achieve the targeted objective effectively & successfully.

If a tailor makes mistake it becomes a fashion, If a scientist makes a mistake it becomes an invention. If an HR manager deploys a retention strategy it becomes a welfare measure.
