Quick Tips for Improving – Hiring Process

“Recruitment” is One of the complex function of Human Resources and very crucial. Being a HR Professional I perceive Recruitment is the most important function of HR because it is the work of acquiring Right People, with Right Abilities, in the Right Time. If once wrong person hired, it cost a lot to company. Today I want to share some of my learning from my experience concerning “Recruitment & Interview Process” Before some days, I got a chance to become a core team member for walking interviews with a prestigious company. I concede HR person is the Ambassador of the company, who represent their company to the interviewee and they have the core responsibility to make candidate aware about the Policies, Culture, and Regulations of the company. But I found sometime in the pressure of hi...

Understand your Boss

Shared by Shri Adil Was addressing a Socialite Club gathering on ‘Life & Realities in the Corporate’. The ‘spirited’ group conspired & veered to argue that all problems were caused by ‘bad bosses’. In a way, I wanted to agree for that is life. But the topic covered ‘reality’ as well and thus I told them as I share … Like or Dislike …. you have to learn to manage upwards. Your boss is pivotal to your success generally and your failure, occasionally. Firstly to acknowledge … your boss has been successful in reaching the position which you have not as yet. Surely, he has something. Like it or disagree. More experience, generally more knowledge, bigger network, more power, more information and a lot more serendipity by h...

Labour pains: Employee unrest in ‘Detroit of Asia’

The Chengalpattu-Oragadam belt has witnessed labour unrest in recent weeks over issues such as workers’ wages and the recognition of unions. Continued ferment could have implications for the State’s ability to attract investment in a highly competitive arena.   With companies like Ford, Hyundai Motor, BMW, Daimler, Renault-Nissan, Mitsubishi Motors, Yamaha Motor and Royal Enfield present, the Chengalpattu-Oragadam belt, near Chennai, has come to be known as the ‘Detroit of Asia’.

Employee Engagement Optimizing Performance & Strengthening Belongingness

  Engagement is not Celebration. As the Engagement Ring is Round Which means endless or infinite and the Ring has Diamond which is Forever, similarly, Employee engagement is a continuous effort for ever.  We HR need to understand our role. With AI coming in, all the process may go away but ‘H’ of Human Resource will continue and our role is to bring employee every day to a workplace where he / she dont want to go. With the change in working of HR (Time office, personal and HR), the approach toward employee keeps changi ng. initially we used to work on employee satisfaction were there is no connect with Performance. Efforts were made to keep employee happy by providing facilities and the focus is on the HAND only. Than comes the commitment of an Employee to the organization...

Root Cause at workplace- ANT

  Once long back there was a Lion who was an entrepreneur. He stated his business and to do the work kept few Ants. Ants either of fear or of engagement were working dedicatedly and giving result as expected. Ants used to come and go in time completing the task effectively and efficiently. One day the Lion thought that if without supervision if Ants are giving such a good result why don’t I put a Supervisor on them to get more output. Honeybee as a Production Manager was appointed to supervise the work of Ants. To show her contribution in line with the objective of Lion, Honey Bee suggested to monitor IN and OUT timing of Ants to enhance production. Lion agreed and recruited one Rabbit as HR Man to monitor IN and OUT timings of all the Ants. Looking to the work, Lion asked to have ana...

Ergonomic Essentials for Remote Working

Working from home is great. The reduced time in the office and cutting out arduous commutes are reason enough to make the switch. Your personal items and the comforts of home are easily accessible. Managing employees, contacting potential clients, grabbing a quick grilled cheese sandwich, and taking immediate control of projects are all possible in your own space. This ability to increase productivity still comes with hours of effort and physical strain, however. And sometimes a mind pressed by stress, too. Much of this can be heavily influenced by your workspace. But through being mindful ergonomics, you not only create a stronger rhythm for your workflow, you also reduce stress and strain on your body. Ergonomics is an often overlooked attribute of a personal workspace. But it has become...

The Advantages and Disadvantages of Flex Time

Offering more flexibile hours can boost employee satisfaction — but there are drawbacks. The 9-to-5 has been a staple for businesses for so long that you don’t even have to think about what those numbers mean; you already know. It’s a colloquialism, it’s a movie, it’s a Dolly Parton song. It’s so ubiquitous that many people don’t even question it. But what if working hours didn’t have to be set by a universal standard? What if they could be set-up to maximize the balance between life and work? This is the basic premise behind Flex Time, or the idea that workers can set their schedules around their lives. There are many different ways that a Flex Time system can work, though the most common is as follows: employees have a minimum number of hours they must work, but are allowed to start and ...

4 Problems with Employee Engagement Surveys

Employee engagement surveys are designed to provide employees with the opportunity to tell their management team how they’re feeling at work. That means all the positive AND negative thoughts and feelings are supposed covered in a survey lasting 100+ questions. Theoretically, this exercise leads to a perfect picture of what’s going on in the office. Are these surveys truly accurate? Unfortunately, the short answer is no. Employee engagement surveys tend not to give an accurate reflection of what’s going on in the workplace. In fact, because of the way they’re usually operated — with an air of finality and aloofness — they can actually be the chief motivation behind employee disengagement, creating the very problem these surveys mean to solve. By addressing problems inherent in engagement s...

Employee Cycle

How do you define a Life Cycle?  Well before we answer this question, let us understand that almost all components that exist in this universe have a life cycle. A Life Cycle is a series of stages through which something (as an individual, culture or manufactured product) passes during a lifetime. In some cases the process is slow, and the changes are gradual. We all know, human beings have various steps during their lives, such as zygote, embryo, child, and adult. The change from child to adult is slow and continuous. What are the life cycles that you know about? While we all know that there is a lifecycle for a product, even an employee in an organization passes through a life cycle.  Here is what I have learned so far. We all know that in business or product there is a cycle, i.e., Intr...

Appriciation- A Tool of Motivation

 “You don’t build a Business, You build people and then people build the business”                                                                                                    – Zig Ziglar Such a nice thought of the Zig Ziglar, is it possible that people build business? Yes, It is possible. Now days it is very common thought and we all are aware of it. Today I would like to discuss with you about the Motivation of Employee. How can we motivate employees??

Being an Entrepreneur, Maximum result and productivity is expected from their people each time and every time. But somehow, they forget that they expecting this from their Men not from Mac...
