I have 6 years of experience in the HR field, spread over various aspects of recruitments, policy documentation, induction & exit process, administration areas, handling employee issues, trainings & appraisals.
I took a gap when my child was born 4 years back.
I am aiming to return to the corporate world with a part time assignment where I could utilize my already acquired skills and evolve further in my desired field of human resource development.
• MBA (HR) from Bharti Vidyapeeth Institute of Management & Research, Delhi.
• B.Com from DAV college, Dehradun
I started my career as a recruiter in June 2000, with Mastermind Networks, Bikaji Cama Place
Next, I worked with TechLegends, a technical recruiting firm, from Jan 2001 till Sep 2002.
From Oct 2002 till June 2006, I moved to Innodata, with its software center in Gurgaon. Here I walked through all the important areas of generic HR. I joined the organization as HR Executive and left as Assistant Manager HR.
Areas of work:
In Mastermind, my primary focus was on resume searching, conducting elementary interview of the candidates and liaison with the clients.
Unlike this, my next job with TechLegends focused completely on IT recruitments. Here my recruiting patterns became more specific and process oriented. From merely a recruitment facilitator, I became a hiring partner with our clients.
In Innodata, though my profile focused on generic HR, recruitments was one of the main areas of work. A team of 2 people focused entirely on recruitments and reported unto my position. I was responsible to understand the hiring targets of various departments & ensure my teams works well on them, analyzing job specifications, updating Job Descriptions and negotiating on compensation.
Training has been an important part of my professional journey and a very interesting one. Identifying Training needs in various departments of Innodata and in the organization as a whole, preparing training calendar, liaison with trainers, internal audits and lastly calculate the impact of training through feedbacks and actual actions of trainees – these were a few things I focused on.
When I entered Innodata, there already was an employee manual. I focused firstly, hence, on understanding the various policies and recommending amendments. I worked on suggesting policies based on demands of time, situations & employees; documenting the same after discussions & approval; reviewing the policies to make them easier and clearer to understand; and the most important thing, to make people aware of these policies – this helped us resolve a lot of employee issues later.
Induction & Exit:
These are the two most critical times for any employee – hence well-focused by the organization too. In Innodata, there were processes followed to handle them; I started with defining the various steps in the processes and rigorously following them. One person was responsible to conduct these processes, which reported unto me. My responsibility was to check adherence and redefining the process from time to time so as to make it more transparent, faster, easy to follow & interesting.
Defining the assessment forms, facilitating the entire process thru robust communication, continuous follow up and support, compiling the assessments and finally communicating the appraisal results – all this was handled by me along with my General Manager, to whom I was reporting.
Handled administrative arrangements like that of arranging outings & get-togethers, smooth functioning of perk elements like transportation, food, tea/coffee, managing the usage of stationary & library. Also was responsible for vendor management and supervising third party staff.
Most challenging and most rewarding part of being an HR professional is the management of various aspects related to the human resource – employees. A straight line of communication with them, prompt action on their queries and requests, providing help towards making their non-professional life easier and retaining the level of honest expected – these things sound very easy on paper, but n reality possess greatest challenges for an HR person. I attempted to imbibe this aspect into my work areas with utmost sincerity.
