New Dimensions in IR
New Dimensions in IR
Causes of disturbed IR situation :
✔Last two decades have not produced sufficient skilled IR professionals by the B schools ,Industries ..This skill of handling people lost its shine because organizations thought of it as redundant.
✔Since organizations were grappling with business challenges did not allow even HR person to do his job ,to add human touch in all business decisions honestly and labeled HR
✔HR has been pushed in an era where employee relations were taught to be maintained electronically and technology and not by heart .
✔Organizations forget how to maintain harmonious ER with sensitivity.
✔Organizations started treating working class who is engine of industrial growth ,just resource and not human resource .
✔Trade unions/workers also forgot to coexist and understand that without employees ,there would be no employees .
✔Organizations are focussing on "Reactive IR"rather "Proactive IR".
*Proactive IR Mantra*
✔HR professionals and management have to go back to their roots and basic principles of Personnel management to maintain workplace harmony.
✔ Management has to accept the challenges of mentoring and coaching their internal unions and workers.
✔Organisations should not ignore the dissatisfaction amongst the employees and strengthen the Grievance Redressal Mechanism.
✔It is time to invest extensively in shop floor executives /supervisors to learn people management skill.
✔ Mindset need to be changed that workers are only a cost factor and nothing else in general and contractual labour in particular.
✔Be fair and firm to pay way increase link with performance and their contribution and not to agree very high wage rise under the fear of pressure.
✔Need to design and develop proactive IR model to strengthen the personal fibre(touch)between HR and its employees.
✔Person dealing with ER/IR must use his /her 6th sense I.e.common sense while dealing with union.
