In our organisation, we used to have our own vehicles and we used to appoint drivers on company roles. We wanted to outsource the vehicles and drivers. One driver was very adamant and he used to misbehave with managers and other seniors. So we decide to transfer all the drivers into the production department so that they will not lose their jobs and they can be taken as the machine operators. But one driver never agreed for that and he wanted to be a driver only. Then I called him separately and told him that by going into production he will get the benefits more. But he is not willing. Then I proposed to him. The vehicle he is driving will be sold to him and the cost will be deducted in EMIs. He will rent the vehicle to the company and he will be the driver. The agreement is for 5 years and every year there will be a revision and after 5 years the loan will be completely repaid and he will be the owner of the vehicle. He agreed for that proposal and he became perfect. After two years he got a job in RTC but continued the vehicle to the company by appointing a driver. He used to thank me always for the suggestion I gave him. So we can change the mentality of employees by making win-win situations to both the parties involved.
Such a flexible stands of the management make the employees more indisplined and disgruntled. However, we have seen some positive changes in the attitudes of the management. Now the union leaders cannot bargain much beyond a certain point and accordingly there has been corresponding drop of adamant attitudes of the workforce. They are now no more disgruntled because of absence of support of unions.
