Thanks for your valuable views and i will try to execute the same.
We are into 100% export business along with manufacturing. One more reason i guess can be our disciplinary part. In our unit PPE usage and wearing shoes are compulsory, chewing tobacco in any form, Cigarette smoking and bringing mobile in factory premises are not allowed, as per the requirement of our International clients. Social compliance is followed . Reason for longer stability of older workers can be that they do not prefer to take risk at this stage of life. We are taking all the employees on permanent role from the very first day. Workers are allowed to take leaves but with prior information except if there is some emergency. We pay attendance bonus per month 100% attendance with no late coming.
We have a canteen where workers can sit and have lunch brought by them from home, we do not provide food in canteen. Recently I have started a new questionnaire to be filled by the worker at the time of joining, so that they get selected for the right job relevent to their previous experience. It is true that maximum labour we appoint are of unskilled category. Also we have started induction programe from this month. Induction Feedback form and Feedback questionnaire after one week and after month month of joning are also intrduced so that we can keep track on the worker's performance.
I invite more suggestions from the seniors to improve the system.
