Hi Friends,
                                              Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.
                                                  There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"
                                       With regards,
                                       Hemen Parekh

Synopsis: Communication For Productivity
Letters written to some 7500 Workers / Managers / Union Leaders, following a period of strike / Go slow / Murders (1979 - 1987), at Mumbai factory of Larsen & Toubro Ltd. This direct / open / honest communication led to a remarkable atmosphere of trust between Workers and Management, which, in turn, increased productivity at 3% per year (ave).

Dear Shri


At the outset, allow me to thank you for sparing your valuable time in attending the Employee Seminar on December 20, 1986, at. Lonavala. I am sure that this unique experiment will go a long way in developing a participative work-culture in L&T. Your own personal and strong convic­tions regarding the national-level and company-level need to

- improve discipline
- improve productivity

will go a long-way in achieving the goals. With the help of the video-cassette prepared during the seminar, I will try my best to see that your MESSAGE reaches each and every employee at Powai.

In the meantime, I am sure, you must have received the invitation for the next Joint Meeting of the Trade Union leaders and Managers to be held at the Conference Room of Bombay Chamber of Commerce & Industry, on February 7, 1987, at 10 a.m. I do hope you will come and give us the benefit of your views. You are most welcome to bring-along Shri Ramakant More, if you wish.

With kind regards,
