Today trends seen in HR

a. Collaboration Vs Competitiveness -We believe in building a truly collaborative ecosystem. We conduct session to groom our managers where our trainers are the leaders from competition. This enables us to mentor our managers through collaboration.

b. Proactive Vs Active-Our first impressions framework enables us to cater to our potential hires and this proactive reach-out program helps us to build engagement further.

c. Strategic investment in HR systems We have thought through and well planned and managed HR systems and processes be it attendance, payroll, performance management, early attrition or exit management system.

d. Family Matters - We at Intelligroup believe that the primary relationship of the associate is with the family. Espcially in India, family plays a major role in all important decision of the associate. Our engagement programs are designed to create a stronger bond between the family and the organization.(Eg - Family Day, Bring Kids to Workplace, Associate family getting a call from his manager on his achievement or any award that he/she receives)

e. Inside-Outside view-HR plays a significant role in becoming more business and client centric; One such initiative is getting customers involved in our key project outings, team building activities. This helps our clients understand the developmental needs of our employees and be our partner in the true sense.
