It is the employees who have to take up the challenging assignments and help the company march forward. Thus it is very essential to have good Industrial Relations. Participative Management is one such system that helps in preserving amity and good relations between the management and the workers.
Thus the study was undertaken with the primary aim of identifying the potential offered by the Participative Management system in terms of improved worker-management relations, a welcome approach by workers, a sense of belongingness among the workers, improved commitment and so on. This identification was followed up by a preliminary assessment of the potential in quantitative terms.
The first phase involved identification of factors to be analyzed. These were then investigated from the workers across different departments. The exercise is aimed at knowing two things;
Management view towards Participative Management.
Workers view towards Participative Management.
The detailed explanations for these are discussed in later section. The findings were then used to make general recommendations and suggest possible follow-up measures to consolidate findings.
The functions and the principles of management have been undergoing a sea change since the announcement of economic liberalizations in the country from 1991.Indian industries are waking up to the challenges thrown in market economy. To survive in this highly competitive scenario, managers are being perceived to improve quality, increase productivity, cut-down waste and eliminate inefficiency. The collective efforts of the employer and employee assume relevance in this context and this is where Human Resource Management can play a crucial role.
The HR function has enriched itself, over the years, by including within it a ?development' Dimension and thus moved itself from a ?reactive' and ?maintenance-oriented' function to a ?proactive', ?path breaking', ?development-oriented' function. Today personnel people talk of linkages with corporate planning, HR approach to industrial relations, HR climate and budgets, development-oriented appraisal systems, multiple reward mechanisms, re-engineering work cultures and ethos etc.

Hypothesis Testing; to test some hypothesis about parent population from which the Sample is drawn Estimation: To use the ?statistics' obtained from the sample as estimate of the unknown ?parameter' of the population from which the sample is drawn.
