Roles and Responsibilities of Industrial Relations Manager

Social Share

The majority of the responsibility of an industrial relations manager involves maintaining good relationships between the employees and management. There are two other words usually used in conjunction with industrial relations which are employee relations and labor relations. Even though the terms usually refer to the relationship with employees all the people connected with the organizations like employees customers union members governing agencies and stakeholders are directly or indirectly involved.

So we can classify industrial relation management into three categories.

1. Employee Relation Management

When the number of employees is less it is often easy to manage the relationships but larger companies can have a dedicated human resource manager, who can handle the industrial relations easily. Managers having expertise in handling industrial relations usually study and resolve problems that can affect productivity and poor performance related to misconduct by employees.

Managers handling industrial relations usually communicate effectively and manage employees through motivation. Industrial relationship managers also adopt employee recognition programs after discussion with top-level managers. Safety measures concerning the employees are monitored by industrial relation managers for improved productivity.

2. Labor Relation Management

Labor relations concerned the mutual collaboration between the top management level and union members among workers. Some countries give the right to employees to form a union for taking part in collective bargaining through negotiation tasks. Small business organizations usually do not have labor unions while large organizations find it easy to have the policies spread among employees through communicating with representatives.

3. Customer Relation Management

Small business organizations will have better communication with clients due to the lower workforce which eventually leads to good relationships. Industrial relations managers sometimes study and recognize the needs of buyers and suggest ways of improving customer relations.

Surveys through questionnaires are often employed for gathering information which is then set as a framework that is conveyed to the workers for a better understanding of customer demands. When staff members are given training for improving product quality it also helps in building good relationships. e for goods and services.
