Dear Prabin,
Wishes ! I dont have exposure to chemical industry, however, i can give some inputs on Mfg sector. The manufacturing sectors can be classified into Heavy engineering [fabrication e.g. L&T, BHEL etc], light engineering [anciallry plastics, auto ancillary like pricol, process industries [chemical, fertilisers, petroleum, sugar etc].
All mfg companies [including chemicals ] have QCDE [QUALITY , COST & DELIVERY TIME, ENVIRONMENT] as mantra and obtain certification in respecitve factor to reach the best practices. While these being general points , HR practices will basically framed based on the above...
Hence creating a Quality circles, Training for Research & Quality, educating employees on environment and deriving benefit to the company and well for the country will be best practices..check for best HR practices in industries like Reliance, Essar, SPIC,EID Parry,BPCL, HPCL..Hope this throws some light

I have been in mfg sector since last 12 yrs. You are expected to be proactive to keep healthy IR . Emphasis on tech training ,regional / industrywise surveys regarding various issues play important role.
Here growth is slow but the fundas u studied get clarified in absolute terms.
All the best

Hi Prabin,
As long as you deal with Human beings the HR policies should be the same. The big difference, would be that a majority of the work force will
not be Knowledge Workers compared to IT or ITES or other Service Industry.
Another major difference would be the presense of Trade Unions and the
the accompanying IR issues. Perhaps you need to become more Emotionaly Intilligent to deal situations in Mfg Sector .
Coming tothe all important factor like Compensation,rarely it will be a match to IT or ITES.,but invariably you can go home in time.
If you need more insights pl.get un touch .Ican share my 3 decades with the Mfg. Sector .All the best
