Competency Mapping and Modeling/workmen relations


in a public sector undertaking plant, technicians and some important workmen are habitually working on Over Time for the work which they supposed to complete In Time. They are enjoying the OT wages continually. Any attempt to control such attitude of workmen is leading to unrest among the workmen. and the officers who attempts such trials are intentionally failed by workmen non-support in running the plant.

How such attitude of workmen can be changed?


Overtime must be avoided as it tends to form its own culture of workmen attempting to work-slow to generate overtime hours. If the management wants to stop this, they can increase manpower, so that the work is done within the prescribed hours and implement "engagement" culture through effective supervision with time and motion study parameters. If the OT system has started recently, it can be stopped but if it is practiced from long time, it takes more effort, investment and long term planning to change it. Attitude can be changed only by defining and practicing consequences. Mere teaching and training will have little effect on attitudinal change since it is driven by self.
