Insights Of Your Company and Its HR Strategies
C2 Workshop specializes in the design and development of custom elearning solutions. Since its inception in 2003, C2 has successfully delivered and deployed over 3800 hours of elearning content for corporates across South Asia, Asia Pacific, Middle East, Europe and North America.
Our HR strategies are based on the simple principle that “an organisation is as good as its people”. So if we have to be the best service provider in our areas of competence, then only the best people can help us achieve that goal.
Fresh Trends in HR
I am not sure if I have seen any major HR innovations in the recent past. After ESOPs went out of fashion, we saw “flexi timings” and “work from home” models gaining ground in the IT/ITES industries. I believe these trends would continue in the near future.
Relationship between HRs and CEOs
Employees can make or break an organization. Given this context, it is essential that HR and CEOs share a relationship of deep mutual trust. If this is in place, everything else will fall in line.
Biggest Pain Point
We, at C2, believe in the adage that "Attitude Determines Altitude". So finding people with the "right attitude" is our greatest challenge.
Criteria To Hire People
Our mantra for recruitment is "Hire for Attitude, Train for Skill". Therefore, the most critical attribute we are looking for in a candidate is the right attitude. We believe that it is possible to train a skill to an employee who has the right attitude; but it is almost impossible to change the basic attitude of a person.
Leadership Development Programs
As an experiment, we introduced a mentorship program last year for a couple of our mid-level managers. And the results have been nothing short of spectacular. We propose to take this initiative further in the coming months.
Attract good people, retain the better people and advance the best people
Among its employees, C2 promotes an open and friendly culture that encourages enthusiasm and creativity, and fosters learning. In an industry which is highly driven by numbers (number of hours spent on a project, number of bugs found, etc), C2 adopts a slightly different approach - it recognizes and rewards great attitude in its employees.
Added to the above, is our commitment to ensure transparent decision making across all levels and of course, giving our team members the freedom to fail.
This culture has helped us attract good people, retain the better people and advance the best people.
Attrition Management: Retaining vs. fresh hiring
We don't believe in choosing between retraining and fresh hiring. Rather, we try to strike a balance between the two based on the resources and skills concerned.
