How to know the employee is planning to leave?

It's the first day at the office and Rini is all set to play her role with a positive attitude. Every work that she is given is an opportunity to learn. Every day at work is building her personality and she is witnessing her growth with a determined heart to keep it going. Her leaders are supportive and the office culture is also positive. It seems like the best workplace for her. 


It's been a year now, Rini has attained a higher position at her workplace. But there is a pattern that Rini has started to find in her job. She misses on the challenges she used to face. And to add onto this, her leader has also left the organisation. The new leader believes in the final outcome and is more into delegating. Rini has queries but his leadership has no time to listen, all it wants is the end result.

One day her leader calls her to his office and hands over a huge project to handle. Rini's excitement levels are at high and her mind has already started thinking on the strategies sh…

HR Automation Unveiled

Ever since the industrial revolution soared, operations became a time-consuming altar. We can’t stress enough on the importance of introducing technology in HR. According to TOI, in a survey by Willis Towers Watson, companies in India expect the use of automation in the workplace to increase from the current 14 per cent to 27 per cent in coming three years, higher than the global and APAC average.
"The advantage with the Indian market is its ability to skip steps and trench technologies," says a Senior Director for the Oracle's Asia Pacific operations, Shaakun Khanna. "In India, companies are relatively young and can embrace technologies faster and leap straight into the future," he also added "If an employee were to tell Amazon's Alexa that she was pregnant, it will not only congratulate her but also inform her about the pregnancy-related assistance in the employment package. Similarly, when prompted, it will also write an email to the HR along with the …

HR Agility: Managing the Change!

Progressive organizations that are seeking a profound competitive edge in the digital world have been increasingly focusing on the need for HR agility. However, there is lurking concern that HR agility is endangered to become a trending buzzword in corporate conversations.
HR agility is basically the ability of the HR function to react instantly and adequately to the evolving employee expectation, business conditions and workplace disturbances. Therefore, HRs are expected to elevate their functions to a level where they can keep pace with the evolving demand.
Today’s business processes have a more stable environment. The objective is to drive efficiency, consistency and risk reduction through tight procedures and controls. It is with the emergence of global competition, changing customer demand, political turmoil, supplier upheavals and economic troughs that the stability is getting replaced with permanent volatility.

Why can’t HR position itself as a Main Business Function?

Human resource is the people science and the most complex as it’s is dealing with the most uncertain creatures i.e. we the humans. Still, this function of HR that is responsible for reward and recognition for other departments is still not getting the due recognition for itself!
“Why the Indian HR Ecosystem lags behind the HR ecosystems of developed countries?" Let's try understanding the reason ….. The impacts of globalization in the industry is continuously evolving and consequently pushing all work functions to become in-line. Whereas the primary functions like sales and tech are the first one to get aligned, it poses a lot of challenges for secondary functions like HR to match up the same.
Sadly, in accordance to a study, 51% of companies are linking business impact to HR programs. In addition, 60% believe in holding HR accountable for not just talent, but also business outcomes. This indicates that almost half of the HR industry is still in the support/administration min…

So, given the insights of the trending market, does India plan to have all-electric vehicles by 2030? This target seems way too ambitious.

How to get grip on workplace bullying?

Akeela having completed her executive MBA in marketing from a top b-school has recently joined a tech startup in Bangalore. During the interviews, she was trying to gauge the culture of the company however with limited time available in the office space and lack of inputs available on the internet about the startup company, she couldn't find much information and reviews. Shortly after joining, she realised that her boss, an ex-star rated employee of a big 4 firm, has been extremely loud and foul mouth. While Akeela was on the learning curve in the very first week of joining, she found her boss to have humiliated her in public twice for not knowing a few data analytics processes.

And in the very first month of her joining, she started regretting her decision of joining a startup.
In the present ecosys…
