ABSTRACT
The author discusses organizational development through utilization of workforce. According to him, forced attrition may bring in fresh ideas, new technologies, and expertise but the long-term sustainable benefits may not be achieved. The author believes that hiring from outside is necessary to create a healthy production system. He stresses that employees must be developed and trained in the company's production system to keep the enthusiasm alive and have them ready to take on new responsibilities.
