Till the end of the Tenth century Transportation and Logistics Companies had been successful in attracting skilled workforce and have sufficient staff to manage their businesses effectively due to the effective use of the cultural richness of its workforce. But, recently employees in the Transportation and Logistics had their own issues in terms of heavy work load, deadline, slim down employee benefits etc. Based on this practical issues faced by this industry this study aims to analyse Impact of HR benefits on employees’ retention in surface transportation firms operating in Tamilnadu.
In Coimbatore there are 205 surface Transport Companies in operation. Of these two companies A.B.T and A.R.C operate throughout the state. These two companies that operate throughout Tamilnadu are selected as Research Population. Due to vast spread of these two Transportation Service Providers and difficulties encountered by the researcher in data collection, sample population was restricted to 45 per cent of the total workers working in these two companies. The sample population of the study consists of 650 respondents in middle and low cadres. This study has found that that there exists close association between employee’s perception on the HR benefits provided by the Organisation to retain employee and their satisfaction levels, except Relationship with Superiors of their satisfaction levels. Thus, it is suggested that the Logistics Service Providers in general and Road Transport Freight Operators in particular should aim to strengthen inter-personal relationship and relationship between superior and sub-ordinates for retaining their valuable workforce.
