South India Research Institute Ltd. (SIRIS) comprises 16 industries manufacturing basic chemicals, pharmaceuticals, pesticides and edible oils. A total of 3,000 employees are working in the SIRIS group of industries. A large majority of employees practice Transcendental Meditation.
After implementation of the Maharishi Corporate Development Programme, G.S. Raju, chairman of the corporation, noted: 'Transcendental Meditation is practised during working hours twenty minutes twice a day. Apart from improving performance, this has helped the progress of the company. Workers now work only 7 hours but produce 10 hours worth of output. Before learning Transcendental Meditation in 8 hours of work the productivity was equivalent to only 6 hours -- an increase of productivity by 57%. In addition, there was a marked reduction in stress, reduced absenteeism, and the workers reported less fatigue, worries, and anxiety. We have found a more relaxed, peaceful and comfortable atmosphere and working climate in our companies.'
There is a need for the preservation
and constant revitalization of the original creativity of the successful
founders of family industries.
The history of the decline of the original
brilliance of family industries is due to lack of proper management
training, which, focusing basically on economics, shadows the managing
intelligence of Nature -- the Creative Intelligence in any individual
-- and hampers the free and full expression of the evolutionary quality
Not enough emphasis on the element of
consciousness, the managing intelligence of each individual, results
in the decline of health and creativity: a flower without water naturally
