The Humanistic approach was advocated by Australian sociologist Elton Mayo. He finds that most important thing is to treat labour as a human element of production. Therefore, it became necessary to take a new, modern and sympathetic view of labour welfare measures. Humanistic approach comprises of human values and relationships, which was missing in the other approaches of labour welfare. The human factor was absent in management of the industrial units and Mayo found the significance of informal relations among groups of workers and stressed relief for man. This approach considers attitudes, human personality and feelings of workers, while introducing labour welfare. Therefore it is evident that the humanistic approach to labour, welfare takes a progressive view about labour welfare.
