HR Garba by HR Milestone Forum

Hi HRians, The word garba comes from the Sanskrit word for womb and so implies gestation or pregnancy — life. Traditionally, the dance is performed around a clay lantern with a light inside, called a Garbha Deep (“womb lamp”). This lantern represents life, and the fetus in the womb in particular. The dancers thus honor Durga, the feminine form of divinity.Garba is performed in a circle as a symbol of the Hindu view of time. The rings of dancers revolve in cycles, as time in Hinduism is cyclical. As the cycle of time revolves, from birth, to life, to death and again to rebirth, the only thing that is constant is the Goddess, that one unmoving symbol in the midst of all of this unending and infinite movement. The dance symbolizes that God, represented in feminine form in this cas...

When and why not to retain top Performers

It is not always wise to offer salary increments or promotions to get employees to stay on; sometimes this can be counterproductive. The most valuable assets of any company are its people, which is why the organisations try to retain the best talent with better compensation and work. It’s a fair thing to do, but how long this strategy will successfully work is something the employers need to ponder over. In order to create a highly engaged workforce that is committed to performance, retaining employees ‘at any cost’ seems a bad idea. Of course, retaining employees has its own benefits —less time and energy spent in scouting for them, no time wasted in acclimatising new joinees, and shorter honeymoon period. This is why, industry experts feel that while there is no harm in...
