Such routine exercises exist in every organisation but do the employees feel that such exercises are really genuine?
From India, Delhi
First of all....i strongly condem ..the ..inciditent..that took place...and
its really time ....that the management gives hr a long rope to take decesions...and..we should look at it in a more holistic ways...if it was not regarding the wages....then i think..we must also ....include "ego management" part of hr functions...which wluld to deal..with such...ghastly incidences...and ..yes...i subscribe to the views ..shuld be given more power to handle .things....

Excellent job done sir...
As you have said GAP between workers and management should be abolish but why ?.
If you do that then they will control the management, take the decision and after that u can imagine what will hapen to company.
2nd : similar food is correct but sitting on same table make no sense. Example : if u are taking lunch with the worker and if u are meeting with him at any where he will talk like he is your boss. There should be some distance.
This kind of shameful activity is done by some group of workers only, they does not come for work or to earn but only leadership.

From India, Ahmadabad
Just let me know if you will have food with your Boss on One Table..will you start feeling that you are his boss....Just think and then reply....
This will only increase your bonding..nothing else.... This gives personal connect and doesn't hamper your professional connect ...
Please correct me if i am wrong...

i am also joing to this prayer and my deepest condolence for this unforeseen incident, the soul of Mr avinash may get rest and peace

as this type of rioutious is being continued everywhere. just 2 months before one DGM-HR has been murdered by one of the employee at the officers quarters in Virudhunagar, Tamilnadu in a Factory. Reason that issuance the suspension order to him due to his inability and his bad attitude shown in factory.

Management should delegate equal power to HR professionals also as like as the Operational Professionals...

Now a days HR is being noted as one of the divison in an oepration department during this Modern HR Professionalism. Which should be changed again back to the earlier trends as HR was a stronger position where any recruitment HR should have been done all the verifications and antedecent check and everything and finally if HR is OK then Business would take a call further which is totally changed now, particularly in the workmen grade and contractural activities.

I strongly condemned this incident and Management also not to provide any safety precautions during this occurrence ....

"People leave managers not companies"

I know as Human Resource job is very important to nurture employees.However Hiring Right candidate is very important for the relevant task

However maximum number of times its the boss who is not able to inspire them to stick along.

Wages & Laws

In India workers are paid extremely low,which is very hard to survive with the kind of inflation. An average US worker in a manufacturing gets $200/day,an average Shanghai Chinese worker get about $15-$20

however in India its is less tan $5/day

As an employee if someone is gaining knowledge and increasing the skill sets it become more valuable for the organization in terms of human capital & monetary as well

However as our appraisal system is so prevalent to appraise once or twice a year,notwithstanding the 80/20 is true that employees would leave in search of better opportunities.

Now,The fault rises in the system to recognize and understand the talent hidden inside-take a step ahead for employee to change some policies and make them benefited.

Which is why such issues arise.This has happened twice in MUL.An alarming situation for all sectors.

Labor Laws is our country need an urgent reformation.notwithstanding the fact that stress and work culture of every industry differs however there is nothing as far as Strictness of Labor laws are concerned.

Proper education:Worker class are not educated and given the growth path.Most of them come from slums.They need better lifestyle for their families.Somewhere deep down their hearts their hard work is unrecognized with proper pay or rewards

Example(Tata's)-They have set a bench mark in Indian Manufacturing industries with the practices they do.People never want to leave TATA steel.There was a time when people were scared to go there.


In times like these Mangers are frighten of their position.To retain their powers.Because of global slowdown.

Most often than not Mangers are not able to direct & Guide coach the employees.

HR Role As organization is only known because of the employees.

Expectation setting about the current procedures.Lot of times I have seen that HRs take one or two sessions about the policies Laws(sometimes only in Induction). & then whatever happens good or bad-is always written in policies which only few have access too.Which is why it becomes very very very important about the transparency in communication & Responsibility in taking proper Decision at right times.

Union Issues:

As far as Union is concerned most often then not its a political ball game.There is no growth when Union is into picture.Take an example of Rickshaw,Collie,Rack-pickers etc-Most of them do the same job for entire life.

We need to educate workers about their benefits and growth prospects in organization.

From India, New Delhi
It's just well understood about violence. One line for a right decision never takes time... and now rest assure the importance of HR is pretty much to stop such hindrances.
My sincere condolences for Mr. Awinash Dev, May his soul R.I.P.

From India, Visakhapatnam
It is really a well defined write-up about the current circumstances of industry and labour regulations and the way dealing with labour issues .
being a HR next time we all will think prior taking any action about the repercussion.
So this is the time management should think at lower level execution and training for them.

From India, Delhi
I think,
I don't thing so that management is not aware about boiling unrest at shop floor because information is tools of every HR professional for solving IR issue, to take action.
HR fail to take timely action on actionable point when it was really need to take.
Lack of worker education (company policy,social etc) & proper communication of supervisor,HR with union & worker.

From India, Mumbai
This incident is a result of total breakdown of communication between the management and the workers. The management must be in the 'know-how' of the pulse of the workers. i have no doubt that there was a complete breakdown of this very important aspect of manager/worker relationship.
