Human Resource Management is one of the most complex and challenging fields of management. It deals with the ?People Dimension' in management. Human Resources play a very important role in the development of the business. They constitute the organization at all levels and are regarded as a dynamic factor of production. Labor is considered as a very dominant factor of production for increasing productivity. In order to get best results from the employees, management must be aware of what employees expect from their employees. It is for the management to see that the workers get economic, social and individual satisfaction, employee welfare activities are undertaken.
The Study on ?Employee Welfare Measures? is conducted with the main objective of evaluating the effectiveness of welfare measures at South Central Railway and to suggest measures to make existing welfare measures much more effective and comprehensive so that the benefits of the employees will be increased.
The concept of ? Employee Welfare ' is flexible and elastic and differs widely with time, region, industry, social values and customs, degree of industrialization, the general economic development of the people and political ideologies prevailing at a particular time, it is also molded according to the age ? group, sex, socio - cultural background, marital and economic status and educational level of the workers in various industries.
In the ?broader sense', employee welfare may include not only the minimum standard of hygiene and safety laid down in general employee legislation, but also such aspects of working life as social insurance schemes, measures for the protection of women, limitation of hours of work, paid vacation, etc. In the ?narrow sense', welfare in addition to general physical working conditions is mainly concerned with the day ? to ? day problems of the workers and social relationships at the place of work. In some countries, the use of the welfare activities provided is confined to the workers employed in the undertakings concerned, while in others, the workers' families are allowed to share in many of the benefits which are made available.
