BACKGROUND TO THE STUDY
Working with the people to achieve a goal can be one of the most difficult
challenges facing an organization or an institute, every aspect of collective
life needs the collective efforts of the people concerned in one form or the
other to achieve success. An individual input is essential in the attainment of
the set goals and objectives by a group it becomes important to understand the
place of welfare programme in an organization is indeed one of the key task of
management is their bid to achieve most efficiently the organizations goals and
objectives. Human resources (workers) are automated equipment etc. to achieve
organizational aim and objectives. Other resources are unproductively in the
absence of human effort and direction.

development programme, all categories of employees are to benefit from
in-service and other productivity in the cast of the junior staff,

productivity of staff in an organization system.
