Strategic Business Management Includes Revenue
Manpower Planning And Costing, Recruitment

Dear members,
We are recently facing a problem related to voluntary contributions to be made by the employees in our company. The contribution amount was decided by the management which is nominal and based on the salary slab of the employee(around Rs.25 to 60/- P.M). The same fund is used for the employees (i.e arranging family meetings, various health awareness programmes, running a play-school at nominal fees for kids of employees etc). The management cuts the same amount from the salary of executives and senior officials. But the same amount is to be deposited in cash by the other workers. Every week we get phonecalls or letters from finance department quoting the name of the defaulters for the same. The management is not ready to change any rules and asks HR department to solve the problem. We repetedly display the defaulters' name on notice board, even individually inform employees but fruitless. It is hard to take any action because it is a voluntary contribution. Can anything be done about it?

Hi Dash,
Very simple don't be fed up, because your management is doing good things.
Emphasis on following point.
1. Prepare Draft which show management current Policy including its effectiveness.
2. Aware your policy to all staff, convince them departmentally.
3. collect the consent from your all staff (Executive and labour)with signature in a draft.
4. Again prepared New draft for Asst. Labour Commissioner attached Para (1) and Para (2) with this draft with showing policy effectiveness and send to Asst. labour commissioner for prior approval.
5. After receiving approval from Asst. Labour Commissioner you can implement without fear.
Because this policy is the part of standing order of the comapny and standing order only implement after receiving prior approval and dully sign from Asst. Labour commissioner.

How can an organisation/management compel an employee to contribute, when its a VOLUNTARY CONTRIBUTION?
The EMPLOYEE WELFARE POLICY can be modified and the amount can be deducted from EMPLOYEE SALARY, once in a year rather deducting every month.
Kindly educate employees about the BENEFITS of EMPLOYEE WELFARE POLICY. There are teachers and there are EDUCATORS. Hope you will utilize the RIGHT APPROACH for educating your employees.
However, you can CONVEY that, by and large, only those will be able to utilize various EMPLOYEE WELFARE PROGRAMS/SCHEMES(i.e arranging family meetings, various health awareness programmes, running a play-school at nominal fees for kids of employees etc.,) who had contributed.
You have to think "OUT OF THE BOX" and be creative in your approach.
With profound regards
