About the Session:
Ms. Elizabeth Paul gave various insights to the students to outshine as an HR professional in the corporate world. She emphasized that we should keep in mind that Employee benefit should not affect the cost of the organization and also that once we implement any new benefit for employees, we cannot change again. Henceforth, we need to be sure what we are doing. Regarding problem solving, HR should go to the crux of the problem, empower the managers and have everything in black and white in order to always remain on the safer side.
Further she elaborated that Recruitment is the only function that challenges HR the most. Most important thing is to attract talent and understand that out of all the candidates whom we consider the best may not be the best for the organization. Highlighting the importance of training, Ms. Paul said that every organization should very crucially analyse and implement the training programmes. It should systematically identify the training prospects as well. In conclusion she said that if as an HR manager one feel that some of the employees are really beneficial to the company and should stay for longer in the company, the HR manager should understand the category or domain which require the presence of such employees and why that category or domain is important for the company.
