Maruti Suzuki has not had it easy in the last one month. Violence broke out at a Maruti factory in Manesar. The cause for violence was deep unrest among the labourers.
The troubled situation has caused for a number of leading B-schools in the country, including a coupler of IIMs, to take a look at their existing curriculum for human resource management and labourer relations.
The B-Schools understand their responsibility of making students well equipped to handle industrial relations and companies are also stepping forward to encourage management schools to do so in order to assure smooth functioning of the industry and optimum productivity.
IIM-Ranchi has announced a full-time course on industrial relations in addition to their already existing human resource management course which they promise to revise. IIM- Ahmedabad is also planning to revive a similar programme in the month of October.
The Manesar turmoil is going to be a case-study in both the courses confirmed sources from the two IIM’s.
