Managements must pay attention to HRD: PHDCCI
Chandigarh, May 12 (UNI) A majority of the industrial disputes and conflicts are due to inadequate attention paid to the human resource development (HRD) by the managements of organisations, PHDCCI past President Ashok Khanna said today.
''Discipline is a pre-requisite for smooth running of any organisation therefore it must be enforced in the organisation for its survival'' he said, while addressing a seminar on 'Disciplinary Proceedings' organised by PHDCCI here.
He suggested that the management should not always take a strictly legal approach but should take into consideration the socio-economic needs of the employees while taking any action to counter a problem of indiscipline. Punishment, if it is to be given, should be corrective rather punitive in nature, he added.
Addressing the seminar, Dr Harish Nayar, Assistant Labour Commissioner, Punjab, said that for maintenance of discipline and congenial atmosphere in any organisation, it is necessary to establish such personnel policies that would encourage initiative, sense of responsibility, task performance and spirit of colleagueship and concern for fair play.
It has become important to develop system based personnel policies so that a particular piece of decision is examined in the light of its inter-connectedness with those in existence for categories of employees, he added.
