In the world of greater economic integration, strengthening trade linkages, rapid technological changes & weakening institutions, workers fear about their incomes & security in their work place. Because of this uncertainty of work, large negative reactions against globalization in developed countries, layoff of employees, absenteeism & many type of such activities happening towards employees which depressing them to a large extent & gradually they are becoming fed off from their works. Due to these reasons productivity of a company is also decreasing as well as their profit also because employee can’t give their 100% to work. Several issues affect the relationship between the work market & human resource working at different fields. Labours are very essential part of running a company smoothly & adequately in right manner & with a high volume of profit also. So, if they don’t work comfortably & safely, then ultimate grow of the company will decrease. No industry can run properly. As we show that, if labour can’t get a comfortable & safety work life, then the manufacturing unit has to pay a great loss for it. So, it is decided that the company has to give as much as possible welfare facilities to their workers for their betterment. The govt. also put his agreeness towards it & made some compulsory welfare activities which the company must has to obey i.e. canteen, drinking water facility, first aid centre, lunch room, rest room, safety equipments etc. according to their no. of working employees. This is called Statutory Activities. Like the statutory many Non-statutory Activities are also done by the company as corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR). Those are such as plantation, donation of tube-well to villages, giving of monetary help to poor people workers & other people in education, health case, marriage & much more activities. In such way the business unit helps to the workers in all respect and encourages them to work hard for profit maximization with their smooth, healthy & relaxed life style.
