Abstract
The working class population in Indian society has been largely centred on the male members of the group. Beingdominantly patriarchal in nature, Indian social systems promote the ascendancy of the male over the female in all spheres ofpersonal and professional life and the working class environment has traditionally been no exception to this rule. Women, bothmarried and unmarried, have been confined to homes while men have gone to factories and institutions to earn a means ofsustenance for the entire family. As a result, the structures in the workplace have also remained constant with men dealing withmen in most factories. This paper examines the manner in which a certain alteration in the gender ratio of an organisation canbring about positive change in terms of productivity, behaviours, attitudes and efficiency on the shop floor. This paper studiesone manufacturing organisation in the Malwa region in the state of Madhya Pradesh in India to highlight these changes throughthe manner in which the organisation implements this change.
