Today trends seen in HR

HR Operations and other specialized HR functions are getting separated.

Difficulties in Planning Human Resource in an ever changing business

Understanding of HR Managers about the Business Plans , Business , Economy , Competitors Business are some of the challenges in planning Human Resources.

HR Relationship with the CEO

Partners, Advisors..

Biggest Pain Point

Competent Leaders/workforce

Motivating Employees with Rewards


Through Suggestion Scheme, Sr.Employee Awards, Scholarships to their children, performance related incentives/bonus etc

Different Qualities looking while hiring people

Besides functional and behavior competency we look for potential.

Some of the leadership development programs being held & results obtained

Programs for Sr and middle level managers, Sandvik Module, 4 courses in a year. We could create pipeline and employee retention.

Identifying Leaders promoting them to the next level

We use different models to identify the leaders. As said above they undergo training programs and are given additional responsibility and then promoted as leaders.

Engaging Gen Y - Leadership and Organization Culture

It is challenge. Since the Gen Y is very open and expressive if we do not capture them and incorporate them in the plans we face huge attrition. And we develop un engaged work force, which indulge in grape wine and creating non productive culture..

Recruiting & retaining the diverse and ambitious Generation Y. Are they really ambitious


Through being transparent while recruitment and capturing their ambitions at that time. By developing good leaders who can align Gen Y ambitions and companies institutional objectives.

Attrition Management: Retaining vs. fresh hiring


We attempt to manage attrition and retain employees by being fair, having fair people policies , effective leadership and transparent communication. In spite of this we face attrition due to pull factor of the job market. We encourage fresh hiring to certain extend.

Workplaces are changing. Cultures are evolving. The average employee today is different from his/her counterpart from a decade ago too? What is lacking and what does he/she need to keep in mind in todays working scenario


There is shift in employees desired qualities. Average employee today is different from counterpart from a decade ago by his exposure, by his ambition and to certain extend confused about whether and how to adopt change. Since they are exposed to lot of things, there opinions and thinking is based on superficial information. In depth knowledge gaining is required and adopting change fast and keep oneself updated with latest knowledge technology is important.

Attract good people, retain the better people and advance the best people

Good people can be attracted by creating present employees as brand ambassador of the company besides other Company promoting . We attempt to manage attrition and retain employees by being fair, having fair people policies , effective leadership and transparent communication. Identifying the early potentials and building performance culture..

Advice/ suggestions to fellow HRs


HR is not a support function it is specialization please work towards gaining expertise/specializations.
