Employee’s Performance: INTRODUCTION(3)


Today knitwear industry is facing serious operational problems on part of greater than before costs of production, low productivity, poor quality of work & products, feeble management and marketing skills. Hence the sector is confronting serious threats of losing its share in the international markets (NPO, 2007). The knitwear industry started producing basic products such as socks, under garments, in early years and with the passage of time it has increasingly produced more sophisticated items like T-shirts, sports trousers, kids’ garments, and there is more value addition in this sector.

The number of units that export knitwear products has declined from 1183 in 2005 to 840 in 2009. Some of the most high tech units are included in the list of closing units. The turn down of over 30 per cent of the knitwear industry is a frightening situation to the economic managers. This has reduced its share in country’s GDP mainly due to its incompetence in attaining required productivity level. So the aim of the research was to divert the conventional approach of the industry that business successes are based on technical fineness only and to create awareness of employees training. The objectives of the current study are; to identify the nature of employee conflicts and to explore its effects on work environment.
