PT. Polychem Indonesia Tbk. is very concerned about industrial relations and sees it as an important role within a company because it determines the operational stability and focus of the company. One operational parameter is human resources (employees). Employees, like we know, very dynamic and unstable from time to time.

The purpose of this activity is to synchronize perception or thought about industrial relations among all stakeholders, so that the objectives of each party could be communicated well and could decide decisions that a win-win solution, so that the common goal as the priority, namely Convenience & Progress of Business, Employees
Welfare and Advancement of Government.

In Co-Class Training, active participation of employers/management, labor and government are synergized together to solve the problem. It is based on the principles of rights, equality, justice and participation in decision-making. Methods are include, expression, democratic participation, playing games, role plays, ensure participants have the same opportunity to take part, and conflict resolution. The event was held for 3 days starting on 20 up to May 22, 2015 with the facilitator was United In Diversity (UID). Numbers of participants and invited guests were approximately 60 people.
Industrial relations is involving employers/management, employees and governments in the dynamics of the industry, will interact with each other in line or otherwise counterproductive. Employees who represented by a union have differences of opinion in the interpretation of the rules by the management. Unions are principled "the main thing is", while Management does not pay attention to the union and pays more attention to Disnaker
s inputs only. In the other side, Disnaker is slow in responding to the complaint of the union. In summary this is the reason for all parties to sit together in a forum.

In this Co-Class, Training all parties agreed to develop a culture: Open Minded (open to receive input), Open Heart (The action begins with the heart), Open Will (there must be a willingness to solve the problem).

At the end of this activity, all participants took picture together with Mr. M. Hanif Dhakiri and signed a joint commitment, which is: "We strongly believe that a harmonious relationship will create a better common progress. Issues must be completed with our open hearts. The second family is where we spend time interacting with them every hour, day, month and even year". Hopefully this activity is beneficial to employers, unions, and government so that the harmonious industrial relations could be realized.
